More records fell on the Gold Coast today as the Book Two section of the 2018 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale provided buyers with more opportunities to find their next life changer.
A filly by Not a Single Doubt topped the day’s selling when she sold for $280,000 in a great result for a client of Queensland’s Grandview.
Catalogued as Lot 1001, the filly was knocked down to Henry Plumptre who was buying for new Cambridge Stud owners Brendan and Jo Lindsay from New Zealand.
“She’s such a lovely individual,” Plumptre said. “It’s been a fantastic sale and we’ve been looking for the right filly and she fitted the bill.”
“I thought she was a sweet filly with a great attitude. The Not a Single Doubt yearlings sold very well over the first four days and this filly really appealed.”
Plumptre said the filly would head to Scone to be broken in and would be placed with either a Sydney or Melbourne trainer.
The Not a Single Doubt filly was one of six youngsters to sell for $200,000 or more across the day. The top three sellers were all fillies with daughters of I Am Invincible (ex Devoirs for $250,000) and Spirit of Boom (ex Air’s Precious for $240,000) proving popular.
Three colts were purchased for $200,000 – sons of Rubick, Husson and Dissident.
During the day over $10.5 million was traded on 158 lots sold at a record clearance rate of over 84 per cent and record average price of $66,690.
“The momentum carried through to Book Two which was to be expected on the back of the record breaking Book One sale,” Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said.
“The highlight of Book Two was the wide and varied buying bench which participated across the board in a sale which cleared over 84 per cent.”
“It’s been a fantastic five days of selling here on the Gold Coast and I want to thank all of our supporters, breeders, buyers and friends. We know you’ve had a great time on the Gold Coast.”
“Book Three of the Gold Coast Yearling Sale as well as the Summer Racehorse Sale will be held on Tuesday with some great opportunities for buyers,” Cox added.
