Riversdale Offers Another Quality Dispersal At Magic Millions
The sale ring comes alive on Sunday with the first day of the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale at the Gold Coast with an outstanding catalogue of bloodstock on offer. Following the weanlings, the fillies and mares will take centre stage with the first National Broodmare day to be held next Wednesday. As well as the eagerly anticipated Teeley Assets Dispersal (see above), the sale will include another quality unreserved dispersal sale. Riversdale will be presenting seven weanlings as part of the Unreserved Dispersal of Roberts Bloodstock and Lillis Family Trust and Partnership interests. Among the highlights of the draft is Lot 174, a Snitzel filly from Miabondialee who is a half-sister to two winners including Hong Kong Champion Griffin Entrapment, winner of eight races and over $1.18 million. The other pedigree stand-out among the weanlings is the Snitzel colt from the Last Tycoon mare Tycoon Joy. Catalogued as Lot 386, the bay colt is a half-brother to triple Gr1 winner Bentley Biscuit and hails from the Denise's Joy family of More Joyous, Tuesday Joy, Sunday Joy and Thorn Park.
