Rubick Yearlings in Demand
After two sessions of the 2018 Magic Millions Yearling Sale, exciting young sire Rubick is third on the list of first season sires by average and off a fee of $17,600 is punching well above his weight with an average price of $166,786!
His top seller so far has been a cracking colt from Our Songbird that made $470,000 for Segenhoe Stud when secured by Jadeskye Racing/ Brad Widdup Racing.
“We’re really, really pleased to get him. Brad Widdup and I went around the whole complex looking for one, because obviously I raced Rubick and he’s probably the best colt on the ground for me,” Damion Flower told ANZ Bloodstock News.
“He’s from a really good family as well, nice and stout and he just reminded me a little bit of Rubick himself. A lovely colour, nice conformation and I was really pleased to get him."
The star colt outsold his own sire Rubick, who was bought from Magic Millions in 2013 for $460,000. He is the first foal of Our Songbird, a winning half-sister to juvenile stakes-winners Debonairly and Corsaire.
The sale continues.
