Magic Millions National Yearlings Day-1: $160k Encosta De Lago Colt
Willie Leung's Hong Kong-based Magus Equine paid $160,000 for a colt by Coolmore's former dual Australian Champion Sire Encosta de Lago (the 7th foal out of 14-year-old Thunder Gulch mare Slip Sliding) consigned by Tyreel Stud as agent. The colt's dam Slip Sliding is a half-sister to dual US Gr1-winning former Arrowfield Stud & Coolmore shuttler Dehere, HK 5-time-winner & Gr3-placed Danesis, plus triple-winning & stakes-placed sire Defrere. Slip Sliding has previously produced 6-time-winner Quinta de Lago.
