Makin Disperses Mares In-Foal To Starcraft At Magic Millions
Paul Makin will sell his entire draft of 20 mares in Australia in-foal to his 5-time Gr1-winning Arrowfield Stud stallion Starcraft (Soviet Star-Flying Floozie, byPompeii Court) among the 2,500 lots catalogued for May-June's Magic Millions National Sale on the Gold Coast. Makin confirmed: "The Gold Coast is the perfect place to offer my outstanding selection of mares for sale & I intend to buy quite a few new mares to go to Starcraft this year. The idea is to ensure the Starcraft babies will be prepared by a number of new influential people. I've seen videos of my beautiful Starcraft foals in England & I expect the Aussie foals to be just as nice. The best advertising for my stallion is place the foals in the hands of a wide band of people. I can always buy-back as many yearlings as I like." As an added bonus, every mare (all without reserves) will be sold with a free 2007 nomination to Starcraft. Among them are: Gr1 winners Private Steer, Elevenses, Episode & Dowry; Gr2 winners Pay My Bail, Sylvaner & Soap Opera; Gr3 winner Classy Dane; & Listed winner Chickens.
