Another yearling sells for seven figures
12:50 AEST Wed Apr 10 2013

Another seven-figure yearling has passed through the ring early on day two of the Australian Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney.

Following on from a day on which the half-brother to Black Caviar fetched an Australian record of $5 million, a filly by sire-of-the-moment Fastnet Rock sold for $1.55 million.

The filly offered by Kia-Ora Stud is from a strong American family.

She became the fifth yearling at the sale to be sold for more than $1 million.

Bloodstock agent James Bester bought the filly for Robert McClure of Morning Rise Stud on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.

Bester said he judged the filly to be the best in the sale and the most likely to be a Golden Slipper contender.

Among the other higher-priced early lots were a half-brother to Pago Pago Stakes winner Bright Expectations by Shamardal who fetched $410,000 and a colt by More Than Ready from the multiple stakes-winning mare Mimi Lebrock who brought $360,000.
