Magic Millions 2YOs In Training Sale: $315K For Star Witness Colt
A colt by Australia's sire of the moment Star Witness will head to Singapore after topping the opening day of the Magic Millions 2YOs in Training Sale at the Gold Coast yesterday. Consigned by Aquis Farm, the colt was purchased by Constance Cheng for $315,000 after fierce bidding involving a number of prospective buyers. Cheng said she was delighted to secure her number one pick of the sale and revealed the colt was a birthday present for her partner. "He's a strong, well built colt and a brilliant mover," Cheng said. "I'm delighted to have purchased who I thought was the standout horse of the sale." She added: "He looks an early two-year-old type and has a great temperament. I'm very happy." Catalogued as Lot 177, the colt is the first living foal of the lightly raced Exceed and Excel mare Ellamotion who hails from the family of Gr1 winners My Brilliant Star, Shot of Thunder and Sudurka.
