The final sale of the year for Sledmere Stud, we took a draft of Weanlings and Broodmares to the Magic Millions National Sale series on the Gold Coast and were very happy with the results achieved for not only the farm, but our clients as well.
Highlighting our Weanling draft was $270,000 secured for Lot 227, a colt from the first crop of Darley’s dual Group 1 winner Brazen Beau.
Purchased by Hilldene and Peter Ford Thoroughbreds, the colt was out of the Medaglia d’Oro mare Calvados, herself a half-sister to stakes winner Barbed, both out of the Listed winner Key Bar Nights.
Another to sell extremely well was the final weanling of the draft, lot 526, the colt by Snitzel’s Group 1 winning son Wandjina.
Purchased by Anthony Mithen’s Victorian farm Rosemont Stud for $165,000, the filly is out of stakes-placed Onmorenomore mare Purcentage, a half-sister to Group 2 performer Spurrendous, from the family of Hong Kong Group 1 winner Glorious Days.
On the Broodmare front, we were slightly disappointed that a few were passed in, but over the moon for clients who has entrusted us to sell Lot 1659, the three-year-old Hinchinbrook filly Samara Dancer (pictured below).
Realising $825,000, the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude (F) winning filly was purchased by David Lucas and Widden Stud.
Just like Samara Dancer, another of our draft just off the track was offered on behalf of Champion Thoroughbreds.
Sold as Lot 672, four-year-old mare Butterboom is a half-sister to Group 1-winning filly Foxplay and was purchased by Belmont Bloodstock for $360,000.
Lot 1293, Italian Storm, a half-sister to the Listed-winning, group 1 placed Soft Sand was snapped up by David Lucas for $300,000, while Blue Sky Bloodstock and Aquis Farm took home Lot 1282, the grey mare Incredulous, a half-sister to Group 2 winner Faith Hill (dam of Listed winner Black Minx), in foal to dual Group 1 winner Press Statement.
We thank all of our client for entrusting Sledmere Stud with their stock, and we wish all our purchasers the best of luck.
