Musk Creek Farm led Victorian vendors during the first two sessions at the Magic Millions this week.
The Flinders nursery sold a Stratum colt for $300,000 on Day 1 and a Sepoy colt for $250,000 on Day 2.
Hong Kong based bloodstock agent George Moore secured the Stratum colt after some spirited bidding around the Gold Coast auditorium. He is the final foal from Courtney’s Cuddles (Brief Truce) who won at Caulfield and Moonee Valley and was also stakes placed at Flemington.
Her first foal Blooded won at Moonee Valley and then transferred north for another half-dozen victories in Queensland. Her three year-old filly Sheza Chickadee won a Stony Creek maiden by 7 lengths last month.
The Sepoy colt sold to Michael Freedman. His dam Leica Lotto (Danehill Dancer) is a three-quarter sister to Moon Dragon (G2 Sandown Guineas) and they hail from the influential “Leica” family.
Musk Creek owner David Kobritz celebrated a Melbourne victory with Cordoba a couple of hours before the Stratum colt paraded on Wednesday.
Cordoba (Hemingway) won the Cable Beach Club Plate (1300m) first-up at Sandown after an 8 month spell. “He was supposed to resume at Wangaratta last month but injured himself in the float on the way to the races,” trainer Allan Williams said. “I race him with David and thankfully he’s very patient because the horse has just needed time.”
Musk Creek received another rewarding result at the Magic Millions on Saturday night with a Foxwedge colt that made $260,000 to the bid of Paul Perry. His dam Tellora (Elusive Quality) is a half-sister to Perth stakes winner Rebel Call.
