MM Perth Yearling Sale Day-2: $265K For I Am Invincible Colt
A colt by I Am Invincible topped the second and final day of the 2017 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale yesterday. Offered late in the afternoon by Dawson Stud, the colt was knocked down to leading Rosehill based trainer Gary Moore for $265,000. Moore, who purchased the top priced lot at last year's Perth Yearling Sale, was delighted to secure the colt, the first foal of former gun Ascot juvenile Miss Solis. "He's from a great mare and by one of our better stallions in Australia," Moore said. "For me he was the pick of the sale. I think he will go early (as a two-year-old)." The colt ended the day as the top seller, but the Not a Single Doubt (Lot 50) from Monday was the overall sale topper at $325,000. Australia's current leading first season sire Gingerbread Man had a great result with his colt half brother to Silent Sedition selling for $170,000. The good looking chestnut colt from Korilya Stud will head to the same stable after being purchased by Aqua Trained Thoroughbreds in partnership with Caulfield trainer Andrew Noblet. Over the two day Perth Yearling Sale some 254 lots were sold for a gross of $9.359 million and average price of $36,846. The Magic Millions focus now switches to South Australia with the 2017 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale to be conducted from March 13 to 15 at Morphettville.
