$3.5million for Platinum Jubilee

Tara Madgwick - Tuesday May 28

Race performance is one thing and pedigree another, but when you put them together in a neatly wrapped package like Platinum Jubilee you get serious fiscal fireworks with the Zoustar filly selling for $3.5million at the Magic Millions National Sale on Tuesday.

 

It was the second trip around the Gold Coast sale ring for Platinum Jubilee, who was originally purchased by her trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott for $600,000 as a yearling from the Newgate draft in 2022.

Her breeder Sir Owen Glenn of Go Bloodstock stayed in her new ownership group and Platinum Jubilee was an immediate success winning the Group III ATC Gimcrack Stakes on debut before racking up numerous stakes placings through her juvenile season.

Her older half-sister by I Am Invincible, Queen of the Ball, was retained by Go Bloodstock and is a multiple Group winner, while her younger half-sister by Written Tycoon was also retained and two year-old Lady of Camelot has done even better than her siblings winning this year’s Group I ATC Golden Slipper.

The opportunity to buy into this tightly held family led to a protracted bidding duel with Coolmore coming out on top at $3.5million for the Newgate consigned filly.

Platinum Jubilee sold for $3.5million to Coolmore.

Queen of the Ball, Platinum Jubilee and Lady of Camelot are the first three foals from stakes-winning Fastnet Rock mare Miss Debutante, who lays claim to being the most exciting broodmare in the country.

She has a yearling colt by Flying Artie and a weanling filly by I Am Invincible, but will have no foal this spring after missing to Zoustar.
