Magic Millions Sales

Magic Millions Sales closed on a high note yesterday when a Foxwedge, colt out of Ekleel, changed hands at $340,000, the purchaser being the powerful Hawkes Racing operation.

John Hawkes was up against strong opposition on the colt, but a sustained effort saw him win the day.

Foxwedge looks to be the shining light on the horizon; he has been kicking goals in the sale ring with the demand strong for his progeny.

The colt was well presented by Eliza Park for Heinrich Bloodstock, he was a real standout in the ring, there was a touch of class about him.

He was one of eight yearlings that sold for a six figure sum during a solid day’s selling.

Lot 2045, account of Ararina Farm, saw a good type of colt by High Chaparral from Di Falco, sold for $175,000 to a New South Wales client of Magic Millions.

He was the second foal of his dam unraced by Zabeel, she being a half sister to Valpolicella, the Group winning dam of Stakes winners, Vavasour and Vilanova .

A Singapore client purchased the third top seller, the Sepoy colt out of Candy Vale, half brother to Stakes performer Candy Stripes, for $170,000 from the Newhaven Park draft.

“Competition continued throughout the sale,” said Magic Millions Managing Director, Vin Cox.
