All Sold – Magic Yearlings by Justify
Undefeated Triple Crown hero Justify enjoyed stellar results at the record breaking Magic Millions Yearling Sale with all 23 of his yearlings offered in Book 1 being sold for $6,900,000 at an average price of $300,000.
Their new owners are in the running for that priced Ferrari should one of those babies win one of the selected Group I races as their careers unfold and the biggest names in racing have taken a ticket to try and win the car of dreams.
Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott/Kestrel Thoroughbreds bought his highest priced filly from dual Group I winner Global Glamour that sold for $900,000, while Michael Wallace bought what he thought was the best Justify at the sale when paying $600,000 for the colt from Lake Geneva.
Renowned judge Keiran Moore has come out of semi-retirement for this sale buying a string of horses under his Tasman Bloodstock banner including a $450,000 Justify colt from Dubawi import Bethsaida (IRE), while China Horse Club/Newgate Bloodstock/Trilogy Racing found a Justify colt from Eckstein for $450,000 in their hunt for champion sires of the future.
Peter Tighe of Magic Bloodstock knows about champions having raced Winx and he snapped up a Justify filly for $400,000, the same price paid by Ciaron Maher for his filly from Now Now, who is a half-sister to Group II winner Fiesta.
$400,000 was also the price for the Justify colt from New Zealand Oaks winner Savvy Coup, who was bought by a savvy partnership of Blueblood Thoroughbreds/Sheamus Mills Bloodstock (FBAA)/Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott.
Annabel Neasham, Star Thoroughbreds and Dynamic Syndications are others to take home a Justify and also likable trainer Greg Hickman, who has had some remarkable luck purchasing horses at Magic Millions by Coolmore sires.
Hickman bought his $2.8 million earner Eleven Eleven (Fastnet Rock) and his $5.8 million earner Pierata (Pierro) from Magic Millions and paid $100,000 for Baramul Stud’s Justify colt from World Peace…. I think we’d all one day like to see Greg driving that Ferrari!
