Magic Millions Adelaide Day-1: $230K For Sebring Filly
Figures soared across the board as a stunning filly by Sebring topped Day One of the 2016 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale at Morphettville overnight. The top seller was purchased by leading Victorian based bloodstock agent Sheamus Mills for $230,000 and will head to Cranbourne to join the Mick Kent stable. "I thought she was the best yearling in the sale - filly or colt," Mills said. "The stallion is flying at the moment and she has a good pedigree behind her. She's from a Redoute's Choice mare and he'll be a champion broodmare sire for the ages I'd say." The Sebring filly is from the Redoute's Choice mare Aussie Crawl, a two time winning daughter of former Adelaide based group winning juvenile Freestyle. She was offered at the auction by Goldin Farms. The top priced colt of the night session was $195,000 for the Written Tycoon-Zoccoletta youngster from the Baramul Stud who sold to McEvoy Mitchell Racing. "He's come off Baramul so he's had a good start to his life," Tony McEvoy said. "He's got great bone on him, tremendous depth of muscle and a lot of power through his core." He added: "I love when he was walking to me, the power through him. He's an up and going two-year-old."
