Dreams await to be unveiled at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale. This sale continues to be a great source of wonderful gallopers at value prices.
Gr1 sprinter Viddora was a $40,000 yearling in 2014 by I Am Invincible. Can you imagine being able to buy one his stock for such a low price now? Perhaps not, but you can imagine finding the next star stallion at this sale. Viddora has now earned over $2 million, thanks to her sensational Gr1 Winterbottom Stakes victory, and her most recent win in the Magic Millions Snippets Plate. Viddora is the type of tough sprinter any trainer would like to have in their stable.
Hucklebuck (Elvstroem) had a sensational spring in 2014, winning three stakes races in succession, including the Gr1 Emirates Stakes over a mile. Sold at Adelaide for $50,000, he has earnt over $1million, while more recently Capital Gain (Ad Valorem) won the 2017 Gr1 JJ Atkins Stakes. Capital Gain was passed in at the Magic Millions Adelaide sale, and later sold at the Magic Millions 2YO Sale. A missed opportunity for buyers...
Among other recent graduates of the Adelaide sale are group winners Time Awaits, Rocket Commander, The Grey Flash, Benz, Mahuta, and Ocean Embers. Stakes winners include the promising All Too Huiying, South Africa’s consistent galloper Sir Frenchie, Falcool, Balf’s Choice, Beluga Blue, Karlovasi, Lope de Capio, and many others.
