Mitch Freedman took another of Swettenham Stud sire Puissance De Lune’s progeny home from the Adelaide sale.

For Leneva Park, this year was the first time selling at the Adelaide Yearling sale and I can’t imagine it will be the last as they were the crowned top Victorian vendor closely followed by Rushton Park. Leneva Park had a draft of six at the sale which included Victorian Sires Rich Enuff, Akeed Mofeed who is currently a resident at Swettenham and a Zoustar colt bred in Victoria to name a few. The highest price paid was $70,000 for the Rich Enuff colt out of Champagne Flute.

Rushton Park had the largest draft at the sale which included a number of yearlings on behalf of Yulong Investments. Lot 146 was the top lot which Rushton Park consigned for Yulong, a Street Boss colt achieving $140,000. Ruston Park had the highest aggregate draft for Victorian farms.

Miranda Park commenced the sale with a bang as lot 1 achieved the third highest price of the sale. The strength of the Palentino’s continued as the filly offered by Willow Grove Stud in Adelaide achieved $120,000.

The striking Puissance De Lune filly was a highlight of Phoenix Thoroughbreds draft and not be missed. This filly will be making her way to Mitch Freedman’s Ballarat stable with the price tag of $90,000.

Noor Elaine achieved the highest price for their Toronado colt out of the Group 1 placed Cincinnati Gal achieving $70,000. Toronado recent success on the track is conveying into the sales ring and have delighted the Noor Elaine team.

Ponderosa offered Lot 342, a Winning Rupert filly which was their top lot of the sale achieving $50,000 for Richardson Racing. Newgate are offering a sizeable cash bonus for all buyers purchasing a yearling out of their first season sires (Capitalist, Extreme Choice, Flying Artie and Winning Rupert) sold at Inglis and Magic Millions 2020 sales. Newgate are offering a bonus of $250,000 which makes it a very attractive selling incentive.

Victorian sires were well represented at the sale and out of the top ten stallions, five reside in Victoria.
