MAGIC MILLIOns COLT - 3/4 BROTHER TO G1-WINNER NECHITA, FROM A FAMILY WITH SPEED TO BURN

image002-2.png

This bay Foxwedge colt was bought at the highly competitive Magic Millions Sale on the Gold Coast in January. After pouring over the 1000 lots and inspecting hundreds of yearlings - both before the sale in the Hunter Valley and during the sale itself - we spotted the colt in the Edinglassie Stud draft. What got us interested was, of course, the sire, Foxwedge - who’s produced Group 1 winners in Australia and New Zealand - but also the dam Artistique. From four foals to race, she’s thrown four winners - including the Group One-winning flying machine Nechita who won the Coolmore Stud Stakes on Derby Day, and city winners Art Thou ReadyThermogenic and Kandinsky. Her fifth foal is a 2yo and our colt is her sixth. Nechita was by Fastnet Rock - the sire of Foxwedge, so the bloodlines between the Group One winner and our boy are as thick as you can get without being full brother and sister.

Our vet Chris Lawler gave the colt a glowing report, saying his x-rays were clean and he was a "very low risk" racing proposition. Finding - and being able to buy - such a beauty in amongst the hottest yearling sale in the Southern Hemisphere in a decade was hard work but fun. Our trainer, Richard Freedman, and Heart Thoroughbreds' Neil Breen inspected him multiple times. During competitive bidding we stayed quiet before coming in at the end and making the final - and winning - bid.

After we bought him, the staff at Edinglassie begged us to never geld him as they believe he is a stallion prospect because of his breeding and, in particular, his close relationship with Nechita. His breeding page is littered with black type. On his sire’s side is the great Northern Dancer line down through Danzig and Danehill and his dam’s side also features the Northern Dancer line as well as the legendary Star Kingdom line through BiscayMarscay and Kaoru Star

We have sent him to Torryburn Stud in the Hunter Valley to continue to grow and enjoy being a yearling. Richard will train him at Rosehill.
