Trio of Million Dollar Colts Star on MM Day Four

Media Release - Friday January 15


For the second straight day a colt by Not a Single Doubt colt has topped a day's trade at the 2021 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

Coolmore Australia's Tom Magnier bid strong to secure the day's top seller, the colt from Soleil Brulant who sold for $1.5 million.

$1.5 million Not a Single Doubt colt.

Offered by Sledmere Stud as agent for breeder Rifa Mustang, the colt is the first foal of an unraced I Am Invincible half sister to stakes winner Harlem River.

"It's a great family," a delighted Tom Magnier said. "And he's a great individual."

"In fairness he comes from one of the top farms in Sledmere. Their yearlings have looked incredible this week."

"Guy (Mulcaster) and James Bester and the whole team really liked this colt and he'll go to Chris (Waller) and hopefully he can be a runner in the race here next year."

"It's a family that we know well and with the support that Yes Yes Yes got at stud we know its a family that's going to get bigger and bigger."

"We are very lucky to be able to get this colt. We've got some wonderful investors to race him with - some great friends."

"We are in the game to try and make stallions and these colts (we have been buying) are by popular horses and they're good individuals."

"Fair play to Magic Millions, they've really got everyone here this week. You see what is going on around the world and it's amazing what's happening in Australia - it's going from strength to strength and we are delighted to be a part of it," Magnier added.

The second last lot through the ring this evening, the Written Tycoon colt from Taqaseem was purchased for $1.2 million.

He is the fourth foal of his dam and was presented by his breeder Emirates Park. The seven figure colt was knocked down to Spendthift Australia's General Manager Garry Cuddy.

Also late in the day Kitchwin Hills went to $1.05 million to secure the Snitzel colt from group performer Supara.

The bay or grey colt, catalogued as Lot 852, was presented by Newhaven Park and was the subject of a spirited bidding battle before the gavel fell.

With a further 90 lots set to go under the hammer tomorrow, the sale gross of over $180 million has already surpassed last year's Book One total of $177.4 million.

The sale average price is trending higher than 2020 at $255,142 and the clearance rate continues to hover around 88 per cent.

"To have the statistics we have to the end of day four is quite phenomenal," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.

"We have eclipsed last year's Book One gross with a night to go and both the average and clearance rate are holding."

"There's an insatiable thirst for the quality horses and the buyers are here in droves and they're doing business."

"We're looking forward to The Star Magic Millions Raceday tomorrow. There's some huge fields out there and there's a lot of anticipating heading into the day."

"And then tomorrow night is a great part of the sale with great atmosphere and hopefully some good sales along the way," Bowditch added.
