A$300,000 Colt for Justify at Magic Millions
Triple Crown winner Justify’s first Australian crop saw fireworks on Thursday when his colt out of Mongolian Beauty sold for A$300,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast National Weanling Sale.
The second most expensive weanling of the session by a freshman sire, the Coolmore Stud consigned colt was purchased by Group 1 Bloodstock. The Katom-bred is the second foal out of the two-time winning Fastnet Rock mare Mongolian Beauty, who is a full sister to Group II winner Mongolian Falcon. The pair are out of multiple group placed Amazing Beauty.
Mongolian Beauty’s third dam is U.S. Champion 2-Year-Old Filly Phone Chatter, making this colt part of a family that includes U.S. Grade I winners In Lingerie and Dixie Chatter.
Mongolian Beauty also has a yearling colt by Pierro and returned to that stallion last year. Her yearling sold for $250,000 to Matthew Smith Racing and Randwick Bloodstock Agency earlier this year.
Justify has another chance to make waves on Friday with two more on offer at the sale.
