$750,000 Colt Tops American Pharoah’s Magic Millions Day 2 Offerings
The second session of the Magic Millions Yearling Sale proved to be just as successful as the first for American Pharoah with the Triple Crown hero currently the leading first season sire of three or more yearlings sold at the sale with an average of AUD$343,33 for 12 yearlings.
His group of three yearlings in the session were led by a AUD$750,000 colt out of Group III winner Jazz Song. Bred by Morning Rise Stud, he is a grandson of Group I winner Absolute Glam, who is also the dam of Group I placed Shaama. The colt has a truly international pedigree with stakes winners in both Australia and the United States on his page.
He looks to join a top racing yard with Mulcaster Bloodstock and Chris Waller Racing signing the ticket. With their purchase, American Pharoah has sired the top lot sold by a first crop sire in both sessions of the sale.
The colt was joined by a James Bester Bloodstock and Morning Rise Stud-purchased filly when they signed the AUD$250,000 ticket on a chestnut out of U.S. Listed winner Leamington. The chestnut filly hails from a family familiar to the Northern Hemisphere with Leamington’s half-sister being Grade II winner Bauble Queen and their granddam dual-U.S. Grade I winner By Land By Sea.
American Pharoah’s unlimited potential as a sire is easy to see with the U.S. Champion Freshman sire having 12 stakes horses from his first crop, making him an appealing stallion for both breeders and buyers alike around the world.
