Day 6 Magic Millions National Sale – Manduro filly makes $500,000

A beautifully bred yearling filly by Manduro topped Day 6 of the Gold Coast Magic Millions National Sale on Tuesday.

The Patinack Farm filly was knocked down for $500,000 to Magic Millions, acting as agent.  She is the first foal of Sadler’s Wells mare Endless who was sold last week to Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa for $1.05 million.  The dam is a half sister to the stakes winner Kind – dam of world champion Frankel.

Second on the leader-board was a $280,000 More Than Ready – Danehill Smile filly from Patinack Farm.  She is the second foal of the former explosive juvenile Danehill Smile – a mare whose first foal is already a winner.

The top priced colt was Coolmore Australia’s Tale of the Cat colt from the lightly raced High Rolling mare Casino Snip.  He is headed to Hong Kong to join the stables of Manfred Man.

Turnover on Day 1 of the Yearling Sale reached $6.50 million when trade resumed after the Foal and Broodmare Sales last week.  The average price of $39,791 which was an 18% increase on last year.  The clearance rate rose 4 points to 74%.

“It was a very patchy market,” Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox reported.  “There were plenty of good sales but vendors must realise the market is what it is.  There’s plenty of people here to participate and we look forward to the realignment of the market on Wednesday.”
