Two Rare Gems by Kementari at the Magic Millions

Mark Smith - Monday December 20

With just two live foals from his lone crop before being unceremoniously gelded, Kementari has both of those rare gems heading to the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale.

Kementari x Mithilia filly

The historic Canning Downs have the honour of presenting Kementari’s first yearling to go through the ring.

Lot 275 is a half-sister to four winners including the Group III Tibbie stakes winner Madam Legend (I Am Invincible).

The dam Mithila (Encosta de Lago) is a three-quarter sister to Manhattan Rain, Echoes Of Heaven, and Niagara from the excellent Redoute’s Choice family.

 Toolooganvale Farm consigns the lone Kementari colt.

Lot 695 is a son of the 3-time winning Bernardini (USA) mare With Care who is closely related to the big-hearted, $1.1million earner Arbeitsam and the Group III MRC Eclipse Stakes winner Payroll.
