$525,000 Fastnet Rock Colt Smashes Magic Millions Adelaide Record
The 2021 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale produced some serious fireworks early in the sale when a Fastnet Rock colt from Group I winner Small Minds was sold for $525,000.
Bred and consigned for sale by Goldin Farms, the stunning bay colt was bought by Tony Fung Investments/Annabel Neasham Racing.
"He's a lovely horse," said Brian McGuire, representing Tony Fung Investments and Annabel Neasham Racing.
"The mare's done nothing wrong with two stakes winners already - he's a full to Sneaky Five - it's a cross that's proved.
"Annabel is delighted to be able to get him - she loved him on the videos and we are excited about what the future holds.
"He's by a proven stallion - I think Fastnet Rock's had three Group One winners already this season - the mare is a good producer and she was a good racehorse herself.
"Physically he's flawless - he's a really top colt.”
A full brother to this season’s stakes-winning juvenile filly Sneaky Five and half-brother to stakes-winner Beautiful Mind, the colt would not have been out of place at any major eastern states sale and is the fifth living foal of Canny Lad’s Group I SAJC Schweppes Oaks winner Small Minds.
The star colt’s $525,000 purchase price easily bettered the previous best at this sale of $340,000 setting the tone for what looks like another super successful yearling sale following on from what we’ve seen at so many other venues this year.
