Superb sale for Wanted at Magic Millions

A stunning foal by Eliza Park sire Wanted topped Day 4 of the Magic Millions National Sale at the Gold Coast on Thursday.

Offered by his home base, the Wanted – Regal Arena colt was purchased by Newgate Farm for $255,000.  “He’s the most outstanding individual I’ve seen at a weanling sale for at least five years,” Newgate’s Henry Field said.  “We will most likely offer him as a yearling, hopefully up here at the Gold Coast in January.”

Wanted is a G1 Newmarket Handicap winning son of Fastnet Rock and he also weighed in with a filly foal from Aquatint that was purchased by Boomer Bloodstock for $190,000.

Fastnet Rock provided the top priced filly when the Kitty Cash foal was purchased by Bowcock Bloodstock for $200,000.

Together, the two days of the National Weanling Sale grossed almost $8.39 million at an average of $34,415.  That was up 30% on last year and the clearance rate rose 9 points to 79%.

“It’s been a great couple of day’s selling at the National Weanling Sale,” Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said.  “There’s confidence in the industry.  Magic Millions has worked hard with the support of vendors and buyers alike.”

The National Sale continues on Friday with a general session of broodmares.  Next week from Tuesday, the Gold Coast complex will host the National Yearling Sale – with a racehorse session on Thursday afternoon.
