MM National Yearling Day-1: $24,323 Average
Meanwhile, exciting young Yarraman Park sire I Am Invincible continued to make news with the second and third top sellers on Day-1 of the Magic Millions National Yearling Sale. Lot 1699, the bay colt from Prinny's Girl presented by Eliza Park International on behalf of the Heinrich Bloodstock Dispersal Sale, was purchased by Laurel Oak Bloodstock for $160,000. The colt is a half-brother to promising Singapore galloper Dragon Highness and hails from the family of Doomben Cup winner Mr Bureaucrat and fellow group winners All Black Gold and So Wotif. The other I Am Invincible youngster to impress was Lot 1702, the bay colt by Pure Pleasure offered by Ambergate Farm, as agent for Middlebrook Thoroughbreds. That colt is the first foal of the Foreplay mare Pure Pleasure, a half-sister to stakes winners Stormcat Academy and Facile Tigre and he was purchased by Singapore's Nova Bloodstock for $130,000. During the day over $3.2 million was traded on 133 lots sold at an average price of $24,323. The clearance rate was 69 per cent. "As predicted, being an end of season sale the market is very selective," Magic Millions managing director Vin Cox said. "As always quality is attracting strong interest with competitive bidding all round." The sale continues today and tomorrow.
