$825,000 for Fastnet Rock Colt

Champion sire Fastnet Rock was in keen demand during the first session of the Magic Millions Yearling Sale at the Gold Coast on Tuesday with his stunning colt from Ciarlet fetching $825,000.

Consigned by Coolmore, the colt was bought by David Ellis/Andrew Williams Bloodstock and is the second foal of winning Northern Meteor mare Ciarlet, a full-sister to Champion sprinter and sire Zoustar.

He was bought for the Te Akau Racing 2021 Colts Syndicate and will be sent to New Zealand to be trained by Jamie Richards.

Coolmore also sold the highest priced filly by Fastnet Rock with the youngster from Blue Blue Sky selling for $600,000 to the bid of the same buyer David Ellis/Andrew Williams Bloodstock.

New Zealand based Ellis is a massive fan of Fastnet Rock having enjoyed Group I success with his offspring including Champion mare Avantage and former star 2YO Heroic Valour.
