Proven Group 1 sire Magic Albert heads the Yarraman Park roster this year at a $19,250 (inc gst) service fee.
Magic Albert has sired the winners of more than $21 million in prizemoney including 15 stakes-winners topped by Group I winners Albert the Fat, Ilovethiscity, Magic Cape and Fighting Warrior.
He sired over 100 Australian winners last season including five stakes-winners and already has close to 80 on the board for this season. “Magic Albert has had a great year in the sale ring, his progeny averaging $136,000 at Gold Coast Magic Millions,” Yarraman’s Harry Mitchell said.
“He also had the equal top lot at the Inglis Classic ($170,000) and had a colt from Eve Angelene that made $HK3.20 million (AUD 397,516) at the HK International Sale on the weekend.
“Our sires have been very popular with breeders, so we see no reason to be making any significant changes in fee, although we have brought Magic Albert back a touch on last year.”
Hinchinbrook and I Am Invincible will remain at the same fee as last year. “The first foals by Hinchinbrook have delighted everyone and, as we all know, I Am Invincible has produced some lovely yearlings that have sold for up to $160,000,” Mitchell added. “We expect both young sires to be fully booked again this year.”
