Champion sire Fastnet Rock starred during the final session of Book I at Magic Millions on Saturday night when producing the highest priced filly of the sale.
Consigned by Coolmore on behalf of her breeder Stonestreet Holdings, the half-sister to dual Group I winner Miracles of Life from Dazzling Gazelle was a standout on pedigree and type.
The filly was bought by Coolmore’s Tom Magnier and will head to the Lindsay Park stables of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig.
“Barbara Banke (Stonestreet) bought the mare (Dazzling Gazelle) at the sales and she sent her back to Coolmore and she’s bred a fantastic yearling,” Magnier said.
“We’ve had a lot of success with Fastnet Rock from this sale – we’ve had Atlantic Jewel.”
“Barbara has done a great job breeding this filly and we’re hopeful for a bit of luck for the future.”
