$575,000 for Fastnet Colt

The third session of the 2013 Magic Millions Yearling Sale on Friday produced more big results for Fastnet Rock with a colt from Awesome Planet selling for $575,000. Consigned for sale by Newgate Farm, the colt was purchased by Spicer Thoroughbreds and is the first foal of Giant’s Causeway  mare Awesome Planet, a winner of five races highlighted by the Group III BTC Doomben Roses. Awesome Planet returned to Fastnet Rock again in 2011, so has a lovely filly foal that is a full sister to this quality colt. Another interesting sale for Fastnet Rock was his colt from Elite Circle that made $400,000 to the bid of the Hong Kong Jockey Club. Consigned by Coolmore, the colt is the first foal of unraced Encosta de Lago mare Elite Circle, who is from Smart Company, the dam of the sale topping Fastnet Rock colt that was bought by Coolmore from Lomar Park Stud on Thursday for $1.35 million.
