$2.75 Million for Fastnet Rock’s Unforgotten
Winner of the Group I ATC Australian Oaks in 2018, outstanding Fastnet Rock mare Unforgotten kept the big prices coming at the Gold Coast on late Monday afternoon when selling for $2.75 million at the Magic Millions National Sale.
Consigned by Blue Sky Premium Consignment on behalf of her owners, Unforgotten was bought by Yulong Investments.
“Marcus Corban and I looked at all the race fillies and mares and she was right up there for us with Sunlight, perhaps just a touch below, and we loved them both,” Yulong representative Luke Wilkinson told ANZ Bloodstock News.
“Mr Zhang was bidding online, so we weren’t aware which leg he was on, and we didn’t know until the phone rang afterwards from his son-in-law, that we knew that we’d secured her.” “She’s a great mover, with great joints and you can see why she was such a good racehorse. Chris Waller has done a great job managing her and she looked good enough to put back into work.”
Trained by Chris Waller for a big syndicate of owners, Unforgotten won over $1.5 million and comes from a European Black Type family being from imported Galileo mare Memories of You (IRE).
Unforgotten was bred by Coolmore and bought from the Curraghmore draft as a yearling at Karaka for $360,000 by Chris Waller Racing, so has been an outstanding investment for her owners.
Unforgotten was the second highest priced mare sold on Monday, with the other three mares sold for $1million or more - Sunlight ($4.2million) , Champagne Cuddles ($2million) and Invincibella ($1.3million) - all bought by Tom Magnier and due to be covered by Justify this spring, read about them here.
