Global powerhouse, Sun International Group, has made a memorable entrance to Australia’s thoroughbred sales market by purchasing the highest priced weanling at this year’s Gold Coast Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.
Working in closely with dual state operation, Eliza Park, Sun International Group snapped up eight weanlings over the two select sessions, highlighted by the Fastnet Rock colt from Sorority Girl for $290,000 (below).
Other buys included the $250,000 Exceed And Excel filly from Up State and the Commands colt from Terrenora ($210,000).
Sun International Group’s Ting Kong Cheng is excited about his company’s initial foray into the Australian industry and will decide over the coming months as to the future of their new purchases.
“Sun International is very excited about investing here in Australia and, in particular, partnering with such an established and reputable company like Eliza Park,” Mr Cheng said post sale. “It has been a very interesting sale so far and now we’re hoping to pick up some nice mares over the next couple of days.”
