|The build up to next month’s Magic Millions 2YOs in Training Sale intensified today with a highly successful breeze-up session held on the Gold Coast.|
A colt by Foxwedge (pictured) and a filly by Star Witness, both members of the Kenmore Lodge draft, ran the quickest breezes, both stopping the clock in 10.34 seconds.
The two-year-old Foxwedge colt, catalogued as Lot 243, is the first foal of a city performed three quarter sister to million dollar earner Idyllic Prince.
His Kenmore Lodge stablemate, Lot 234, is a daughter of Star Witness and half sister to international group performer Newlands. Her dam Delphi Lodge is a half sister to Golden Slipper winner Vancouver.
Also running slick times today were colts by Dawn Approach (Lot 249 in 10.42 seconds), Zebedee (Lot 178 in 10.44), Reward for Effort (Lot 86 in 10.45), Dream Ahead (Lot 181 in 10.51), Akeed Mofeed (Lot 202 in 10.51), Whittington (Lot 175 in 10.52), Brazen Beau (Lot 129 in 10.55) and Deep Field (Lot 34 in 10.58).
Some 118 juveniles stepped out on the Gold Coast today and breezed stylishly into a northerly head wind on a sunny morning and early afternoon.
“By the strength of the breeze-ups held over the past week the sale is shaping up perfectly for prospective buyers with a high quality line up on offer,” Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.
“Our vendors are proven sellers of black type performers and are experienced and highly skilled at developing young horses. Rest assured buyers can come to the Gold Coast with confidence of finding their next star,” Bowditch added.
