Following on from his sale topping average in the first session of Magic Millions Adelaide, Bel Esprit recorded the best average for session two yesterday (Wednesday) … and achieved the session’s highest price with his colt from Obiqua.
In what was deemed to be a highly successful sale – with monumental increases on last year’s take – Bel Esprit (below) sold up to $77,500 with leading Victorian trainer John Ledger taking home the topper.
Bel Esprit’s session average of $39,833 was more than three times higher than the overall sale figure and, following on from a big result in Melbourne, he has clearly become one of the most sought out yearling sires in the country.
Also making an impact on the second and final day of Adelaide ’10 was Written Tycoon with two of his colts figuring in the top 10 sellers with the colt from Sister Cinderalla bringing $42,000, while the colt from Chapent – knocked down for $30,000 – appears destined for a Ready To Run sale later in the year after being snapped up by one of the most astute pin hookers in Washpool Thoroughbreds.
