Dual Group 1 winner Nettoyer (Sebring) headlines the latest supplementary entries for the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale, which gets underway on the Gold Coast on May 25.
The mare has won seven of her 42 race starts, headed by victories in last year’s Doncaster Mile (Gr 1, 1600m), while she added a second elite-level victory to her record when she took out the Queen of the Turf Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) at Randwick last month. She has earned $2,508,700 in career prize-money.
The mare is catalogued as Lot 717 and Widden Stud’s Antony Thompson, who will offer the mare at the sale, said it is rare to have a Doncaster winner offered at public auction.
“She was a very good race mare and it’s a very rare thing to have a mare who has won a Doncaster, which is a time-honoured and iconic race, to be offered at public auction,” said Thompson. “To have a mare to have won a Doncaster is an unusual thing and certainly the last one sold at auction was Private Steer and that was a long time ago.
“So, I think she puts herself up as a very exciting offering in a catalogue with a lot of lovely mares for sale. Being by Sebring and she has a lovely pedigree behind her, so I think she’s a mare that will command some international attention and strong, local support as well. So she’s a nice addition in supplementary sale and I think will prove popular.”
Purchased for $20,000 at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale in 2015, the daughter of Sebring (More Than Ready) is one of five winners out of two time-winning mare Cleanup (Dehere), who is herself a half-sister to Group 3 winner She’s Clean (Redoute’s Choice).
The mare’s third dam is Keltshaan (Pleasant Colony) who produced Grade 1 winner Kinshasa No Kiseki (Fuji Kiseki), while she is the grandam of Group 1-winning pair Abbey Marie (Redoute’s Choice) and Absolutely (Redoute’s Choice), Group 3 winner Runaway (Manhattan Rain) and Quantum Mechanic, who landed this season’s Sunline Stakes (Gr 2, 1600m) as well as South African Grade 2 winner Mount Pleasant (Vancouver).
Group 2-winning I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) mare Fiesta is another exciting addition to the National Broodmare Sale and she will be offered by Glenesk Thoroughbreds as Lot 726.
The daughter of I Am Invincible (Invincible Spirit) landed five of her 32 career starts, including twice at Group 3 level, while the best performance of her career came when she took out the Silver Shadow Stakes (Gr 2, 1200m) in 2018, which saw her earn $1,589,625 in career prize-money.
These latest additions come after the announcement that multiple Group 1 winner Arcadia Queen (Pierro) will be offered at the sale and she will also be joined by well-bred mare Taste of Heaven (Encosta De Lago), who will be offered by Yarraman Park in foal to their resident sire I Am Invincible.
Catalogued as Lot 1369, the daughter of Encosta De Lago (Fairy King) is out of Shantha’s Choice, making her a sister to Group 1 winner Manhattan Rain, while she is also a half-sister to Group 1 winner and influential late sire Redoute’s Choice (Danehill) and fellow elite-level winner Platinum Scissors (Danehill).
Two shares in the Newgate Farm’s Golden Slipper Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m)-producing sire Extreme Choice (Not A Single Doubt) have also been supplemented.
Magic Millions Gold Coast National Sale commences on 20 May with the first of two days of weanlings to be followed by the National Broodmare, Yearling and Racehorse Sales with the final day of selling on June 3.
