A well bred colt by Big Brown topped a successful Magic Millions Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale today.

Presented at the auction by Washpool Lodge, the colt is a half brother to the outstanding Macau galloper Good Master as well as former Gold Coast prepared stakes filly Merryanna.

The colt attracted strong interest and after a fierce battle he sold for $230,000 to Magic Millions, acting as agent for a leading Singapore trainer. Rosehill’s Gary Moore was the under bidder.

The buyer of the top priced colt will be hoping he can establish himself the latest Washpool Lodge star sold at the sale following on from the likes of Macau champion Viva Pronto and Melbourne and Australian Cup hero Shocking.

Leading local trainer Bevan Laming made the early running at the sale when he purchased Lot 16, Kenmore Lodge’s Authorized-La Redoute colt for $220,000.

Authorized-La Redoute coltHe is the first foal of a three time winning Redoute’s Choice mare who hails from the family of international Group One winners including Flying Snowdrop and Sparkling Gem.

Another Kenmore Lodge offering, the Not a Single Doubt-Take Charge colt, who ran the fastrest breeze up of the sale, at 10 seconds flat, was sold for $205,000.

Victoria’s Newlands Farm outlasted a number of parties to secure the colt and he is likely to join a leading Victorian stable.

Washpool Lodge, who supplied the sale topper, also provided the next two top sellers – colts by Oratorio and Congrats for $180,000 and $155,000 respectively – both to Gary Moore.

Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said his team was pleased the results of the sale.

“There are a lot of great stories that have come out of the 2YOs in Training Sale, not least the participation of the Macau Jockey Club, bidding live over the internet throughout the sale and we thank them for their support.”

“Credit must be given to David Chester who has been working on this project for the last month, as well as attracting active buyers from Korea, Malaysia, China and the Phillipines.”
“The participation at the upper levels by domestic buyers suggests the two-year-old market is now firmly in investor’s minds.”

“To have a clearance rate of almost 80 percent in a two-year-old sale is phenomenal. It was a good market for vendors and buyers alike.”

Meanwhile, a Casino Prince filly closely related to former champion international racehorse and now top sire prospect Frankel topped the Patinack Farm Complete Dispersal of 2YOs following the 2YOs in Training Sale.

The filly from Endless was purchased for $340,000 by Tony Bott’s E Thoroughbred Pty Ltd outfit and helped return that sale a gross tonight of over $2.5 million at an average price of almost $47,000 for 51 lots sold.

The sale concludes tomorrow with the Patinack Farm Complete Dispersal of 3YOs, racehorses and stallions to be followed by the Spring Racehorse Sale. Selling starts at 11am.

Harness Study on Cobalt Could Muddy the Waters for Regulation

As regulators continue the process of establishing a testing threshold for cobalt, a recent study from the harness racing industry may have muddied the waters. A release from the United States Trotting Association stated that the study, which has yet to be publicized in full, indicated a level of 70 parts per billion of cobalt in blood was a good threshold to guard against horses being treated artificially with the mineral.

The finding is at odds with the 25 ppb that has been suggested by other racing regulators, and which is the threshold for testing in Indiana and for Standardbreds in New York. Kentucky equine medical director Mary Scollay told the Daily Racing Form that the discrepancy is hard to understand without the full study, and it’s too soon to know what impact the finding could have on the debate over cobalt thresholds.

The finding also conflicts with research done in other countries, which suggests 10 to 12 ppb might be more appropriate, even if horses are given B-12 supplements.

Cobalt has a similar effect as EPO on human athletes, and could affect horses the same way.
