Ellicazoom Sells For WA Record At Last Belmont Sale

Testa Rossa’s stakes winning mare Ellicazoom will have another racing campaign after she set a WA auction record at the last Magic Millions sale to be held at Belmont in Perth on Sunday.

Ellicazoom sold for $420,000 at the Magic Millions Perth Winter Sale, a price that made a piece of Western Australian thoroughbred history..

Offered by Mogumber Park on behalf of her owners, the mare was purchased by NSW stud farm Kitchwin Hills.


"She's a quality mare," said Mick Malone from Kitchwin Hills.

"A lot of mares like her were hard to buy in Queensland and I love Testa Rossa. We always wanted a quality Testa Rossa mare on the farm."

"She will be put into work for maybe one more preparation. Ultimately we bought her as a broodmare but we will try and give her a campaign before heading to stud.”

Ellicazoom Horseform is from the G1 winning sprinter Ellicorsam and is a stakes winner and G2 runner-up in both Perth and Melbourne.

2018 Perth Winter Yearling, Thoroughbred and Racehorse Sales

Sunday’s Winter Yearling, Thoroughbred and Racehorse Sale grossed over $1.34 million.

The top seller among the racehorses was the Peters Investments offering of Heart Starter who sold for $55,000 to Gangemi Racing.

The Gangemi team will be hoping he emulates Battle Hero who was purchased from Peters Investments at the sale last year for $60,000 and has subsequently won four stakes races for his new connections.

The top selling yearling was the Snippetson half brother to Like A Butterfly. He was offered by Scenic Lodge and was purchased by Damien Wyer Racing and Bloodstock for $30,000.

The day was historic being the last sale to be held by Magic Millions at Belmont Park.

"There's been a lot of history here at Belmont but we are looking to the future with our new purpose built complex in the Swan Valley now in development," said Magic Millions WA manager David Houston.

"We can't wait to be at the new complex in February for our feature yearling sale.”
