Magic Millions - Arrowfield And Snitzel Take Top Honors

Arrowfield Stud and champion sire Snitzel completed a leading vendor/stallion double at the record-breaking Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

Arrowfield finished as the leading vendor by aggregate for the third consecutive year with $13,680,000 paid for 46 of 49 lots sold.

Snitzel headed the sires' table by average for the first time with 33 lots sold for an average price of $483,788.


Arrowfield's top lot was the sale's top-priced filly, the much-admired Snitzel x Flidais sister to G1 winner Sweet Idea and G2 winner Showtime.

She was purchased for $1.8 million by Reg Inglis, Paul Frampton and American owner Jon Kelly and will be trained by Gai Waterhouse.

The top-priced colt by Snitzel was the $1.6 million paid for the colt out of Admirelle, a full brother to G1 winner and young sire Sizzling. He was purchased by Phoenix Thoroughbreds, Aquis Farm, Yulong Investments and trainer Ciaron Maher.

Snitzel's third seven-figure lot went to trainer Mark Newnham when he paid $1.1 million for the filly out of Intimate Moment.

Arrowfield also sold the $1 million Redoute's Choice x Cat by the Tale colt, knocked down to James Moore Racing. That colt is the 75th million-dollar yearling by the three-time champion sire.

James Harron, who has enjoyed success with previous Arrowfield Magic Millions buys Sweet Idea and Dracarys, signed for the farm's Snitzel colt from Madame Andree for $900,000.

Arrowfield and Snitzel accounted for five of the Sale's top 10 lots.
