Magic Millions Select Weanlings Day-2: $255k Wanted Colt

Friday, 1st June 2012

Newgate Farm paid top price of $255,000 for a colt from the 1st-crop of Gr1-winning Eliza Park stallion Wanted (the 4th foal out of 10-year-old Arena mare Regal Arena) during the 2nd session at the 2-day Magic Millions National Select Weanling Sale on the Queensland Gold Coast. The colt was consigned by Eliza Park as agent & the colt's dam Regal Arena (who has previously produced 5-time-winner Portos) is a full-sister to Gr1-winner, Gr1-placed & triple Gr2-winner Regal Cheer, as well as a 3/4-sister to stakes-winner & Gr1-placed My Lady's Chamber. Newgate's Henry Field declared: "He's the most outstanding individual I've seen offered at a weanling sale for at least 5 years. Just a stunning colt - the pick of the sale & he's by a speed Gr1-winning son of Fastnet Rock - that's a no-brainer. We will most likely offer him as a yearling, hopefully up here at the Gold Coast in January."
