Offered as Lot 416, Shout the Bar’s full sister by Not a Single Doubt from Drinks All Round will be offered by Segenhoe Thoroughbreds, who pinhooked the filly from the Newhaven Park draft at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale last year for $130,000.

Lot 416

American Pharoah (USA) has been the dominant first season sire at Australasian sales this year with his first crop of Northern Hemisphere progeny proving super successful and including 34 individual winners (27 two year-old winners) highlighted by six stakes-winners amongst 15 stakes performers.

All four of his juvenile stakes winners last year were on turf tracks and his record in Japan stands at six winners from seven runners including exciting stakes-winner Cafe Pharoah.

Those statistics have buoyed local confidence in his Australian offspring and his two yearlings on the pinhook list are both quality individuals to be offered by Milburn Creek.

Lot 290 made $250,000 as a Magic Millions weanling and is an interesting horse being the third foal of imported World Map (IRE), whose sire Pivotal has been making news here in Sydney as the sire of high class galloper Addeybb (IRE), who beat Verry Elleegant to win the Group I ATC Ranvet Stakes (2000m) two weeks ago.

Lot 290

If you’ve seen Addeybb and you know what Pivotal looks like, then it’s not hard to see why this colt looks like he does and for buyers seeking a horse for the really big races over a trip, he is the sort of colt you might want to look at.

Lot 486 was a $200,000 Magic Millions weanling and is the first foal of a High Chaparral (IRE) daughter of multiple Group I placed Group II winner Shania Dane from a big Black Type family.

She is the one and only foal of her dam, who died after she was born so is a rare gem.

Pride of Dubai is the leading first season sire in Australia by earnings and winners and has two youngsters on the pinhook list that remain in the sale.

Lot 105 was a $120,000 Magic Millions Weanling and will be offered by Coolmore.

He is the first foal of metro winning Medaglia D’Oro (USA) mare Nazca, a half-sister to Group III winner Aramayo and grand-daughter of Group I winner High Hawk from the family of champion racehorse and Group I sire In the Wings.
