Magic Millions Day-3: $730k Exceed And Excel Colt
Roger Langley (bidding on behalf of Nathan Tinkler's Patinack Farm) continued Patinack's massive recent buying splurge when paying the Day-3 top price of $730,000 for a colt by boom Darley 1st-crop sire Exceed And Excel (the 1st foal out of 6YO Gr2-placed Pins mare Acupuncture) during yesterday's 3rd session at the 8-day Magic Millions Yearling Sale on the Queensland Gold Coast. The colt was consigned by Willow Park Stud as agent & his dam Acupuncture is a half-sister to 7-time-winner & stakes-placed Fluffy Duck. Langley commented: "He was a lovely colt & his dam is a half-sister to Anna Bek, a filly we recently acquired from New Zealand & a 4th place-getter in a recent stakes race at Flemington."
