Fastnet Rock Fillies Star at Magic Millions
Champion sire Fastnet Rock had two of the top three offerings at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale on Thursday with fillies from Awesome Planet and Black Minx selling for $400,000 and $390,000. Consigned for sale by Newgate Farm on behalf of her Western Australian based breeders Alan and Sue Olive, the star filly was purchased by Glen Harvey Bloodstock/ Paul Moroney Bloodstock. "We absolutely loved her," Moroney said. "I thought she was probably the best filly of the sale on pedigree and type. "She's a lovely athlete who stood over ground. Whatever she looks like now, in another twelve months she's going to be a big, strong filly." She is the second foal of the Group III winner, who was one of 192 mares covered last spring by champion colt Pierro in his first season at stud.
