Pedigree Updates Boost Valiant Stud Magic Draft

Sponsored Content - by Tara Madgwick - Friday January 7

Fergal Connolly and his team at Valiant Stud will present 13 yearlings at Magic Millions across Books 1 and 2 with a cracking colt by Written Tycoon an obvious standout, while two appealing youngsters have great pedigree updates sure to enhance their worth.

Reigning champion sire Written Tycoon has Magic Millions 2YO Classic race favourite Coolangatta doing the talking for him at the Gold Coast with his stock sure to be in hot demand and Valiant Stud will offer Lot 302.

A Super VOBIS eligible colt, he is the second foal of Group III placed Listed winner My Country, who won three of her four races as a two year-old.

Lot 1104 is a Charm Spirit (IRE) filly from Daring, whose two earlier fillies by Charm Spirit are both now winners since the catalogue went to print in Pacific Dragon and Paper Dragon.

The Tony Pike trained two year-old Pacific Dragon was first past the post in the recent Group II Eclipse Stakes at Ellerslie, but was relegated to second on protest by exciting filly Wolverine.

Pacific Dragon has undoubted stakes ability and will no doubt pick up much more Black Type as her career unfolds, while three year-old Paper Dragon led all the way to win at Geelong for the Henry Dwyer stable.

Lot 957, a colt by Headwater from Quick’s the Word is a half-brother to talented three year-old Dragonstone (Mikki Isle(Jpn), who is yet to miss a place in six starts for the Mark Newnham stable.
