Real Saga’s success in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic flowed over to the sale ring when two of his colts topped the Day 5 leader-board on the Gold Coast.
Top of the dial was the chestnut colt from city winning Strategic mare Maxy Legs at $240,000. He was purchased by Robert Anderson’s RMA Bloodstock and will join leading Gold Coast trainer Noel Doyle. “We really liked the horse,” Anderson said. “He is a nice colt and in the same mould as Biggles who we’ve had some good luck with.
“We picked him out a number of days ago and Real Surreal’s win in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic probably pushed the price up.”
A Real Saga colt from a half-sister to Karuta Queen was next best at $150,000. He will also remain on the Gold Coast after being purchased by Heinrich Bloodstock.
Sunday’s Day 5 average rose some $7K to $46,491 and the clearance rate dropped 1 point to 77%.
Day 6 of the Magic Millions will conclude trade at the Gold Coast on Tuesday. The yearlings will be followed by a quality packed racehorse and broodmare sale that includes drafts from Darley, Patinack Farm, Heinrich Bloodstock and Royston Stud.
