Top Prospects In Perth Winter Sales
Real opportunities will be presented to buyers on Sunday, June 26 with the Belmont Park Sales Complex hosting the Magic Millions Perth Winter Yearling and Thoroughbred Sales. Around 150 lots have been entered to date with vendors having until today to lodge a supplementary entry. The 2016 Magic Millions Perth Winter Yearling Sale has quickly established itself a premier source of quality performers. The past two editions this sale have produced Group Two Western Australian Guineas winner Man Booker ($25,000 purchase with earnings of $496,300), Crystal Slipper winner and Karrakatta Plate runner-up Spangled Impact ($2,000 buy with $260,400 earned already) and quality performers Atacama Sky (Ascot 2YO winner and Perth Stakes runner-up) and Recoiled (won first two starts in Perth at three). This year's catalogue includes (at least half) relations to stakes performers including Black George, Oroya Gold, Prentice, Rockshaft, Vitalism and Young Lionel and youngsters from stakes mares Danni's Crystal, Only Glory, Rosey View and Simply Adorable. The 2016 Magic Millions Perth Winter Thoroughbred Sale comprises 113 lots to date and plenty of interest will surround in excess of 50 weanlings to go under the hammer including members of the first crop of group winner Galah. Other sires represented by weanlings include Black Heart Bart's sire Blackfriars as well as Dash for Cash, Dick Turpin, Frost Giant, Gingerbread Man, Patronize, Planet Five, So Secret, Trade Fair, Universal Ruler and Your Song. The Racehorse section of the catalogue is highlighted by Western Australian Derby winner Respondent and other city winners including Essayez, Express Dancer and Sheerkat. Feature broodmares in the line up include Group Three winner Native Song and the dam of star local group winner Pop Culture. A highlight of most Perth Thoroughbred Sales is the draft from Peters Investments - this time around there are 12 lots - the majority of them proven quality racehorses.
