MM Gold Coast Day-4: $1.2M For Fastnet Rock Filly

Monday, 16th January 2017

A close relation to dual Gr1-winning mare Miracles of Life sold for $1.2 million and helped the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale set new records for Book One on Saturday night. Tom Magnier, bidding on behalf of Coolmore Stud, secured the Fastnet Rock x Dazzling Gazelle (More Than Ready) filly after a spirited battle with Victorian trainer Robbie Laing. The filly, presented by Coolmore, was bred by Barbara Banke's US-based Stonestreet Stables and will ultimately head to the Lindsay Park stables of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig. "Barbara Banke bought the mare (Dazzling Gazelle) at the sales and she sent her back to Coolmore and she's bred a fantastic yearling," Magnier said. "Barbara has done a great job breeding this filly and we're hopeful for a bit of luck for the future."
