Boom Times At Adelaide Magic Millions

A colt by first season sire sensation Spirit Of Boom topped the opening day of the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale at Morphettville.

Presented as Lot 127 by Rosemont Stud the colt was sold to Yulong Investments for $300,000 after a bidding duel with Perth based bloodstock agent John Chalmers.

The colt, pin hooked from last year's Magic Millions National Weanling Sale, is the fourth live foal from the stakes winning Reset mare Moulin Lady.


Rosemont Stud's Anthony Mithen said the result was a massive pin hook success as the colt was purchased as a weanling for $10,000 on the Gold Coast.

"It's a great result for good clients of ours Crown Park Thoroughbreds, who do a bit of dabbling on low end weanlings - trying to pin hook a few for a profit and they've done a great job here - $10,000 into $300,000,” he said.

The team from Yulong also went to $210,000 to secure the second top seller, the Nicconi-Sparkle Arkle colt from first time Adelaide sellers Princess Park Thoroughbred Farm.

The top priced filly of the day was a Spirit Of Boom filly from Done Deal who was sold for $125,000 to Lloyd Kennewell from the Eureka Stud and Cornerstone Stud Partnership.

During the opening day of the sale over $7.4 million was traded on 173 lots sold at an average price of $43,245 and clearance rate of 80%.

The average price is tracking ahead of last year's Book One final statistics.

"We're really pleased with how the day went," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.

"To have a $300,000 lot and to have four horses make $150,000 or more - we're pleased with where we are at, at this stage of the sale."

The Adelaide Sale wraps up with the final session of Book One yearlings on Wednesday followed by Book 2.
