Platinum Jubilee Ring 750

$3.5Million Mare Headed to Coolmore

The star studded Coolmore broodmare band already features a champion daughter of Zoustar in Sunlight and will be enhanced by another blue blood mare by the same sire in Platinum Jubilee (3f Zoustar x Miss Debutante, by Fastnet Rock), who was purchased for $3.5million at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale on Tuesday.

It was the second trip around the Gold Coast sale ring for Platinum Jubilee, who was originally purchased by her trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott for $600,000 as a yearling in 2022.

Her breeder Sir Owen Glenn of Go Bloodstock stayed in her ownership and Platinum Jubilee was an immediate success winning the Group III ATC Gimcrack Stakes on debut before racking up numerous stakes placings through her juvenile season.

Her older half-sister by I Am Invincible, Queen of the Ball, was retained by Go Bloodstock and is a multiple Group winner, while her younger half-sister by Written Tycoon was also retained and two year-old Lady of Camelot has done even better than her siblings winning this year’s Group I ATC Golden Slipper.

The opportunity to buy into this tightly held family led to a protracted bidding duel with Coolmore coming out on top at $3.5million for the Newgate consigned filly.

Queen of the Ball, Platinum Jubilee and Lady of Camelot are the first three foals from stakes-winning Fastnet Rock mare Miss Debutante, who lays claim to being the most exciting broodmare in the country.

“Obviously the mother has done more than most will ever hope to do; she’s the dam of a Golden Slipper winner [and] all first three foals are Group winners,” Coolmore’s Tom Moore said.

“This particular filly won her Gimcrack on debut and she’s the type of filly that we want to home in on to send to stallions like Wootton Bassett.

“We think that she can produce a commercial yearling, hopefully a top-class two-year-old in the future and she was one of the mares here that we really wanted to get home.”
