Trainer Tony McEvoy, fresh from winning Saturday's Newmarket Handicap with Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Sunlight, went to $250,000 to buy the filly in partnership with Suman Hedge Bloodstock.

Offered by Rushton Park, the filly is a half sister to two winners including accomplished Adelaide galloper Beau Rivage.


"She really stood out to me," McEvoy said. "Gee the stallion is going well."

"His colts are going really well and there's no reason why this filly won't join them .

"I trained her half sister by Monaco Consul and she got there at three. I don't plan on rushing this filly at all."

Tasmania's Grenville Stud sold their three catalogued lots for a gross of $490,000.

Grenville's Brazen Beau colt went to Kennewell Racing and Group 1 Bloodstock and their Zoustar filly to Redgum Racing and CB Bloodstock both sold for $190,000 - the most the stud has achieved for yearlings at auction.

The third member of the draft, a Mongolian Khan colt, went for $110,000 to Macdonald Gluyas Racing.

"We haven't been in Adelaide selling a horse for about 20 years," Grenville's Graeme McCulloch said. "It's been a great day to sell all three so well.

"All three horses are going to great trainers and to set a new stud record twice is fantastic."

Some 16 lots sold for $100,000 or more as local, interstate and international buyers sought the stand out physicals in the sale.

During the day over $7 million changed hands on 171 lots sold at an average price of $41,289. The clearance rate rate was 75 per cent.

"There were very good results at the top end," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.

"There was a huge appetite for the good horses."

"Obviously the market is very selective at the lower to bottom end but we're really pleased with the result as a whole."
