Magic Millions HIT Day-1: $220k Fastnet Rock Colt

Thursday, 29th October 2009

Singapore-based Australian trainer Don Baertschiger paid $220,000 for a colt by Gr1-winning Coolmore stallion Fastnet Rock (the 4th foal out of triple-winning 12-year-old Last Tycoon mare Wisp) consigned by Attunga Stud as agent. The colt clocked 10.45sec for 200m during the pre-sale breeze-ups & Baertschiger declared: “I thought he was the nicest horse on the grounds. I can't wait to get him to Singapore. I probably had to go a little higher than I would have liked, but all the good judges are on the quality lots.”
