Magic Millions March Sale Day-1: $150K For Rothesay Filly
A lovely filly by Queensland Guineas winner Rothesay (Fastnet Rock) topped Day One of the Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale yesterday when she sold for $150,000. Leading local trainer Bryan Guy was delighted to secure the chestnut filly, offered as Lot 28 by Glenlogan Park. Guy trained the filly's dam Bareena during an eight win career capped by victory in two listed events in South East Queensland. "She's a beautiful filly," Guy said. "Two of her foals are both smaller types and they're both winners." He added: "This filly is bigger and stronger, much like the dam (Bareena) and she is a really nice filly. She's a great walker and she has everything I look for in a nice filly." Four other yearlings sold for $100,000 - two colts from the last crop of champion Queensland sire Sequalo, a colt by Real Saga and a filly by Show a Heart. Three of the top five sellers were offered by Glenlogan Park, the other two by Lyndhurst Stud Farm.
