Magic Millions Weanlings Day-1: $300k Encosta De Lago Colt
Magic Millions as agent (for an undisclosed NSW buyer) paid top price of $300,000 for a colt by Coolmore-based stallion & Australian Champion Sire of the last 2 seasons Encosta de Lago (the 4th foal out of Gr2-winning 9YO Danzero mare Sharp) during yesterday's opening session of the 3-day Weanling section at the Magic Millions National Sale on the Queensland Gold Coast (to be followed by the 4-day Broodmare section & then 3-day Yearling section). The colt was consigned by Bylong Park Thoroughbreds & general manager David Burke enthused: "He's by a champion sire & from a former top class mare trained by John Hawkes. He is probably the horse of the sale - he's a beautiful mover, who is going to make up well later on."
