Brisk business for Fastnet foals at Magic Millions

Fastnet Rock was back in business when Day 2 of the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale kicked off on Thursday.

The Coolmore shuttler’s colt from Bellevue Lady was second best on the Day 1 leader-board at $145,000 and he bettered that with a $185,000 filly on Thursday morning.  Vin Cox Bloodstock agent Garry Cuddy had the final say for the Fastnet Rock – Satin Robes filly on Day 2.

The Satin Robes filly was offered by Coolmore as agent.  Her dam was a brilliant a Rangal Park homebred who won three races including the LR Kensington Stakes at Flemington.

Satin Robes (Ne Coupez Pas) has changed twice since retiring, the most recent being at the 2011 Inglis Easter broodmare sale when making $175,000.  She was sold in foal to High Chaparral and is due to be covered by Wanted at Eliza Park in the spring.  

A Fastnet Rock – Satin Robes filly made $150,000 at the 2011 NZB Karaka Premier yearling sale earlier this year.

Widden sire Stratum topped Day 1 with a $220,000 half-sister to NZ G1 winner Anabandana and he backed that up with a $145,000 colt on Thursday.

Offered by Woodside Park, the colt is a younger half-brother to the precocious General Nediym sprinters Nato and True Decoy.  Their dam True Seduction (Bellotto) is a half-sister to Caulfield Cup winner Cole Diesel.  

Woodside Park sold the grey colt to Cameron Cooke.  The Victorian based agent also paid $150,000 for a Duke of Marmalade colt on Day 1.
