Gerald Ryan Buys Top Rubick Colt

A colt by Rubick made the top price of $420,000 on the second day of the Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.

The buyer was Rosehill trainer Gerald Ryan, no surprise as he prepared Rubick during his racing career.

The top lot on Day 2 is from Charm’s Honour and was offered by Supreme Thoroughbreds on behalf of Dorrington Farm. He is a half-brother to Blue Diamond Stakes runner-up Enbihaar and was purchased for Nasser Yaseen’s Teeley Assets.


“He was the spitting image of his old man, albeit maybe a little taller than his father at the same age,’’ Ryan said.

“He’s a great mover, great strength and has a nice page.”

The top-priced filly of the day by Sepoy from Beauty World was bought for $400,000 by Damon Gabbedy’s Belmont Bloodstock Agency on behalf of Milburn Creek’s John Muir from the draft of Blue Gum Farm.

Blue Gum Farm ended Day 2 as the sale’s leading vendor by aggregate with 17 sales for $2,525,000.

The leading vendor by average is Yarraman Park at $247,500 from four sales

Leading buyer by both aggregate ($1,330,000) and lots purchased (8) is McEvoy Mitchell Racing while the leading sires are Zoustar (by aggregate, $3,205,000) and I Am Invincible (by average, $232,500).

Day 2 ended with a clearance rate of 81%, average of $121,404 and gross of $32,293,500.
