The Victorian’s were off to a flyer on Day One of the Magic Millions National Weanling Sales, with a daughter of Darley Victoria’s BRAZEN BEAU (lot 4) selling for $45,000 to KBL Thoroughbreds. Viewers did not have to wait long to see the first six-figure colt go through the ring with Sullivan Bloodstock’s WRITTEN TYCOON colt selling for a whopping $170,000 to Red Diamond Bloodstock, another amazing result for Yulong’s Champion stallion.
A son of OMAHA BEACH (lot 29) realised $50,000, selling to Widden Stud, while lot 32, a colt out of Savaan from the Sullivan Bloodstock draft, reeled in $85,000, selling to Victoria’s Stonehouse Thoroughbreds.
Lot 48 saw a daughter of Widden Victoria’s OVERSHARE sell for $210,000 to Bahen Bloodstock, a filly coming from the family of Group One superstar ZARITA.
Things got a little quieter during the back-half of the day with plenty of withdrawals, but nevertheless, that did not stop some super weanlings going under the hammer for big money, with Victorian interest.
Victorian buyers Rifa Mustang sought after a colt out of Sublime Dancer (lot 71), paying $67,500 to Noralla Stud, while Milburn Creek sold a filly by WRITTEN TYCOON (lot 112) to Taylor Bloodstock & Marketing for $120,000.
Yulong Investments went to $250,000 for lot 137, a WRITTEN TYCOON colt from the draft of Vinery Stud, out of a daughter of multiple stakes winner SUGAR BAY.
Swettenham Stud’s TORONADO hit the board with lot 147, a colt out of Asheerah, sold by Caithnes Breeding for a large $300,000 to Sledmere Stud.
On day two of the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale, Victorian’s should keep an eye out for the progeny of Victorian sires Royal Meeting & I Am Immortal who are both heading into their third season at stud.
