MM Perth Yearling Sale Day-1: $325K For Not A Single Doubt Colt
A strapping colt by Arrowfield Stud's multiple stakes-winning stallion Not a Single Doubt topped Day One of the 2017 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale at Belmont Park yesterday. Consigned by Amelia Park Racing and Breeding as Lot 50, the colt was the clear stand out for the day and sold for $325,000. The colt was knocked down to Gangemi Racing and will head to the stables of Chris Gangemi. "The stallion Not a Single Doubt is on fire, they get up and run and Westspeed is very attractive to us," Michael Gangemi said. "He's beautifully balanced and is a great walker. He's a strong horse and we're delighted to have acquired him and moving forward hopefully we can get him up and going for the early two-year-old races." The colt is the fourth living foal of the Sydney winning More Than Ready mare Sambar and is therefore a half brother to Gr3 Champion Fillies Stakes winner Samovare. He was one of eight lots to sell for $100,000 or more on Day One. In total, 113 lots sold for a gross of $4.33 million on day one at an average price of $38,319 - both the gross and average price marginally up on last year's corresponding session. "The numbers are very much in line with Day One last year and there's some very nice horses tomorrow and I'm hoping for a good finish to the sale," Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said. "When the good horses come into the ring the competition is fierce." Day Two of the 2017 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale commences at 11am (WA time) today.
