|A well related filly by Scissor Kick topped Day Six of the 2021 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale this afternoon.|
Offered by Arrowfield Stud, the filly was knocked down to All Winners Thoroughbreds for $300,000.
The latest yearling from the 100 per cent winner producer Moonlight Hussey, the bay filly is a half sister to this season’s city winning juvenile True Moonlight.
Her dam Moonlight Hussey was a two-year-old winner and twice stakes placed before retiring to stud. Her dam Lunaspur was a stakes winning two and three-year-old.
“She’s a lovely filly by Scissor Kick,” Arrowfield’s Paul Messara said. “She’s well related and is from a great family – the family of Gunnison and Colorado Claire.”
Messara pointed out that Arrowfield Stud sold a Snitzel filly from Colorado Claire for $425,000 (to Annabel Neasham and Brian McGuire) earlier in the Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
“She’s a fantastic type and those good sorts are well found,” Messara added.
The top selling colt on the day was the Vinery Stud offered All Too Hard-Poppet’s Treasure youngster who was purchased by local trainer Kacy Fogden for $200,000.
Across the four hours of selling today almost $5 million changed hands on 83 lots sold at an average price of almost $60,000 and an impressive clearance rate of 81 per cent.
“Book Two has a wonderful record of producing Group One horses at good value prices,” Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.
“I’m certain this will be the case again this year and there’s plenty more quality lots to go through tomorrow.”
“The opportunities will continue through Book Three and then the Summer Racehorse Sale with a great draft from Godolphin.”
