Swettenham’s Toronado (IRE) contributed significantly to their success. Lot 138, a standout, fetched $200,000 from Sheamus Mills Bloodstock. Another Toronado colt, Lot 157—a half-brother to the stakes-placed, multiple city winner Malahide (Shamus Award)—also sold for $200,000. These strong results elevated Toronado to second place on the Sires By Average (three or more) table, with six sold at an average of $127,500.

The sale also introduced us to the progeny of Extreme Warrior, with a top lot selling for $80,000, which is a promising debut for the son of Extreme Choice standing at Rosemont Stud.

The Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale on the Gold Coast has gone to new heights when Imperatriz sold for an astonishing $6.6 million to Zhijun Zhao (a partner of Yulong), setting a record for a broodmare in Australia. The 10-time Group 1 winner will now head to Nagambie, significantly boosting Victoria’s breeding industry.

Rosemont Stud enjoyed a fruitful sale, moving several top mares and involving numerous Victorian buyers. Their top lot was the Listed winner Legacies, sold for $1.4 million.
