Magic Millions Perth Day-3: $240k Elusive Quality Colt
In the auction ring, Darren McAuliffe from Impressive Racing paid top price of $240,000 for a colt by former Darley shuttler Elusive Quality (the 6th foal out of Gr2-winning 12-year-old Pricelessly mare Born Priceless) during the 3rd & final session of the Select Section at the 4-day Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale at Belmont Park. The colt was consigned by Yarradale Stud & McAuliffe enthused: "He's a lovely colt. I looked after his mum when I was working as a strapper with Lou Luciani. Of all her progeny so far, this guy is probably the closest to her. He's a good, tough looking colt. He's not that big - but mum (Born Priceless) wasn't & she was tough & she won a Karrakatta Plate." Born Priceless is also a half-sister to 5-time-winner & stakes-placed Rich Inheritance, 9-time-winner Rich Haul (dam of Gr2-winning & Gr1-placed The Heavyweight, stakes-winner Born Western, stakes-winner Happy Strike-Lisboa Stand & dual stakes-winner Zedrich), winner Rich Resource (dam of Singapore Gr2-winner Trigger Express) & unraced Iman (dam of NZ Gr1-winner & Gr1-placed Imananabaa).
