We have been inundated with inquiries on our latest purchases from the Magic Millions sales, some 150+ inquiries have hit the office in the last few days and we have have worked around the clock to get all purchases from this year's Magic Millions up online and ready for selling, including approval of product disclosures with Racing NSW, website updating, video's and photos.
There is no doubt the stock we purchased at Magic Millions are not only outstanding types BUT are from some of the best families in the studbook.
One of the most popular yearlings we purchased is Lot 127, our high price ticket colt, a serious stallion prospect by More Than Ready out of the Group 2 winning and Group 1 placed Fastnet Rock mare Jolie Bay. This top shelf colt is the most expensive yearling we have ever purchased and considering his pedigree, his physical type and sensational attitude, his $343,000 price tag looks cheap in comparison to the sale average and other similar purchases. His breeders, Chris and Jane Barham loved him so much they couldn't resist buying back into this outstanding colt. In fact Chris and Jane also raced the Jolie Bay and the 2nd Dam Legally Bay who won a Group 3, Listed race and over $600,000 in stakes earnings.
Team Hawkes will train who know the family very well, training both Jolie Bay and Legally Bay and a number of other horses in the family including the full sister to Jolie Bay, Zara Bay who is already stakes placed.
