Magic Millions Tas Yearlings: $62k Churchill Downs Filly
In the sale ring, Victorian-based trainer Mark Riley paid top price of $62,000 for a filly by Blue Gum Farm's Gr2-winning & dual Gr1-placed freshman stallion Churchill Downs (out of Hennessy mare Caralowe) during yesterday's 1-day Magic Millions Tasmanian Yearling Sale at the Inveresk Showgrounds in Launceston. The SuperVobis-qualified filly (consigned by Armidale Stud) is a half-sister to this season's 2YO stakes place-getter Triple Asset (favourite for today's $50,000 Shaw Magic Millions 2YO Classic at Mowbray).
