Magic Millions Mares Day-2: $1m Strawberry Field
Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan paid $1 million for stakes-winning & dual stakes-placed 4YO mare Strawberry Field (Encosta de Lago-Red Labelle, by Blevic) during yesterday's 2nd session at the 4-day Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale on the Queensland Gold Coast. Strawberry Field (consigned by Kitchwin Hills as agent) was offered as a racing & breeding prospect & Ryan commented: "She's a really nice mare. She has a lot of up-side; in fact I can't see any down-side at all. She's been out for a while spelling & she will enter work soon & be set for the Spring Carnival. You'll see her racing at Caulfield & Flemington later on in the year."
