Record breaking Day 3 of Magic Millions Yearling Sale

It was another record breaking day at the 2022 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale on Thursday, with eight horses cracking seven figures.

A stunning colt by I Am Invincible sold for $1.9 million, the top sale of the day.

Coolmore Australia Principal Tom Magnier secured the colt, which is the latest yearling from the stakes performed mare Suspicieuse and is a half brother to Aquis Farm based sire Dubious.

“Most people had him picked as the sale topper and it looks like he could do that – we are just so delighted to get him,” said Mr Magnier.

“We have a great team here at the sales, going around to pick the horses and everyone landed on this horse.

“He will go to Chris Waller and hopefully we have a bit of luck.”

Earlier in the day, the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace stable flexed their muscles to secure the Pierro colt from Ravi, offered as Lot 419 from the draft of Kia Ora Stud, for $1.5 million.

The day’s top priced filly as Lot 590 – the first living foal of group winner Sweet Sherry by Snitzel – sold for $1.35 million.

Colts by Zoustar (ex Summer Sham for $1.25 million), Snitzel (ex Red Lodge and ex Street Secret for $1.1 million), Not a Single Doubt (ex Rhodamine for $1.1 million) and I Am Invincible (ex Silently for $1 million) were also among the day’s stars in the ring.

Following today’s selling the sale gross has shot to over $154 million, with an average price of $298,668.

“It was a boomer,” Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said. “It’s one of the best days of trade we’ve ever had here at Magic Millions.”

“With eight million dollar lots, a record average and the clearance rate has held solid like yesterday at 94 per cent.”
