Magic Millions Weanlings Day-1: $150k Lonhro Filly
New Zealand's Paul Willetts paid $150,000 for a filly by former Woodlands & now Darley Stud's 11-time Gr1-winning World Champion Miler & Australian Racehorse-Of-The-Year Lonhro (the 1st foal out of unraced 5YO Zeditave mare Assertive Sound) similarly consigned as part of the Stratheden Stud dispersal. The filly's dam Assertive Sound is a full-sister to triple Gr1-winning former Australian Champion 2YO Assertive Lad & dual Gr1-winner Assertive Lass (dam of both unbeaten dual Gr1-winning Darley stallion Reset & Gr3-winner So Assertive), as well as a half-sister to 21-time-winner Colony Sound & stakes-placed La Boisselle.
