Exceedance finished Top 5 among First-season covering sires at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale last week.

The record-breaking Gold Coast Sale included 7 mares that sold in foal to the Vinery stallion and they averaged $143,571.

Unstoppabelle (Lot 1104) led those with a PPT to Exceedance when making $280,000 to the bid of B2B Bloodstock’s Ricky Surace.  The rising 4yo daughter of I Am Invincible was offered by Attunga Stud (as agent).

She was a 2yo winner on debut at Morphettville for Ciaron Maher Racing and earned black-type when placed in last year’s Blue Diamond Preview Gr.3 at Caulfield.   Unstoppabelle’s younger half-sister Danny’s St Darci (All Too Hard) updated the pedigree winning a Cranbourne nursery at her second start for Archie Alexander last month.

Exceedance (Exceed And Excel) covered 142 mares in his initial book and Vinery has set his fee at $33,000 (inc GST) this year.

Vinery mare More Radiant (More Than Ready) and Willow Park mare Something Silver (Medaglia d’Oro) both changed hands for $210,000 carrying foals by Exceedance.

More Radiant sported the ‘Big V’ brand to Stakes placings at Flemington and Caulfield.  Her first foal My Ecstatic (All Too Hard) is a Hong Kong winner for trainer Frankie Lor and her 3yo The Diamond (All Too Hard) is a last-start Toowoomba winner for Kendrick Racing.

More Than Ready mare Ektifaa (Lot 831) was one the stars among the Shadwell Estates Dispersal selling to Kia Ora Stud for $1.7million.  “The whole Shadwell draft was amazing but Ektifaa is the one we really picked out,” Kia Ora manager Shane Wright said on Tuesday.  “More Than Ready with Not A Single Doubt is a phenomenal cross and that will make her a great match for Farnan.”

In other Vinery news from the Gold Coast, Casino Prince mare Baccarat Baby (Lot 636) sold to Spendthrift Australia for $650,000.  She earned over $500,000 for owner-breeders Peter Harris and Matthew Irwin with wins in the Sunshine Coast Guineas Gr.3 and Princess Stakes LR.

And the old-guard of Testa Rossa and Mossman were back in focus from their back paddocks at Vinery.  Testa Rossa’s Group 1 performer Mica Lil, in foal to Pierata, was purchased by B2B Thoroughbreds for $200,000.

Mossman mare Moss Trip, in foal to Trapeze Artist, was knocked down for $900,000 to Kia Ora Stud.  She was a Stakes winner at Randwick and Scone for Triple Crown Syndications.  Mossman has another smart one in Hong Kong with the John Size-trained Drops of God very impressive on debut at Sha Tin last Sunday.
