JUST 24-hours after he sired his second Adelaide Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner, Vinery Stud sire More Than Ready provided the sale-topper on Day One of the corresponding sale.
Leading local trainer Phillip Stokes paid $210,000 to secure Lot 116, a bay colt from Baramul Stud out of the Desert King mare, Sun Chariot.
”He’s by one of the great stallions in the country in More Than Ready and he has a lot going for him.
”The dam is a half sister to Super Satin – who I trained prior to him heading to Hong Kong (where he won the Derby)
”And this colt has a lot more substance than Super Satin had at the same stage,” he added.
Overall on Day-1, 164 yearlings sold for $5,669,500 (up 54.5% on last year’s 137 sold for $3,670,500). The average of $34,570 was up 29% (last year $26,792) & the clearance rate was 81.2% (last year 76.1%).
