$800,000 Fastnet Rock Filly Bred on a Magic Cross

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday January 13

The Fastnet Rock x Galileo cross runs at 22% stakes-winners to runners and there was only one yearling to be offered at Magic Millions bred this way and she duly attracted keen competition before being knocked down for $800,000.

$800,000 Fastnet Rock filly from Dreams and Wishes.

Consigned by Strawberry Hill Stud, Lot 245 is a sister-in-blood to the 2020 Group I VRC Oaks winner Personal being by Fastnet Rock from the winning Galileo mare Dreams and Wishes, a full sister to stakes-winner Personify, the dam of Personal.



An elegant bay with Oaks filly written all over her, she was purchased by Ciaron Maher Bloodstock.

This filly is the fourth foal of her dam, but it’s the first mating to Fastnet Rock and interestingly Dreams and Wishes has gone back to Fastnet Rock in the two years since, so this filly must have pleased everyone at the stud.

Footnote: The Fastnet Rock x Galileo cross has produced 20 stakes-winners, eight of them Group I winners.
