Magic Millions National Yearlings Day-1: $230k Sebring Colt
New Zealand's Te Akau Racing principal David Ellis paid top price of $230,000 for a colt from the 1st-crop of Widden Stud's Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning former Australian Champion 2YO Sebring (the 4th foal out of Gr1-winning & dual Gr1-placed 12-year-old NZ-bred Shinko King mare Bramble Rose) during yesterday's opening session at the 2-day Magic Millions National Select Yearling Sale on the Queensland Gold Coast. The colt was consigned by Tyreel Stud & his dam Bramble Rose (winner of the Gr1 NZ Oaks, plus placed in both Australia's Gr1 AJC Australian Oaks & Gr1 Arrowfield Stud Stakes) is a half-sister to NZ Gr3-winner Lady Chaparral. Bramble Rose has previously produced stakes-winner Maules Creek.
