Lot 63 Written By x Atmospherical filly $280,000
All year Boomer has been impressed with the types that Written By has been producing and this filly is no different. Purchased from the formidable Widden Stud, this well-balanced filly is out of a well performed Stakes winner and is from a strong speed family that includes G1 Oakleigh Plate winner, Eagle Falls. She was purchased for client Murray Thoroughbreds who will race the filly before she eventually joins their ever-improving band of broodmares.
Lot 66 The Autumn Sun x Axiomatic colt $750,000
This colt was purchased in conjunction with John O’Shea and was one of the more well put together progeny of first season sire, The Autumn Sun, who was obviously a Champion on the racetrack so we’re hopeful that will carry over onto his sons. His sloping shoulder and strong hindquarter were a major attraction as well as being stamped by his sire. In terms of pedigree this colt’s dam is a half-sister to Champion NZ 3YO and sire, Xtravagant. On top of this the cross of Redoute’s Choice and O’Reilly has already produced Group 1 winner Shout The Bar, Group 2 winner Splintex and strikes at 73% winners to runners.
Lot 421 Maurice x Shengli filly $300,000
Another yearling purchased in conjunction with John O’Shea this son of Maurice caught our eye with his scope and athleticism. Maurice continues to go from strength to strength with Hitotsu dominating the Derbys with Arrowfield Stud continuing to be the one of the top breeders in the country. This colt has a beautiful walk with plenty of length that he can grow into. In terms of pedigree his dam is half-sister to G3 winner, Malavio.
Lot 426 Exceed And Excel x Sky Treasure filly $300,000
American broodmares are continuing to produce excellent results here in Australia with horses such as impressive first season sire, Russian Revolution, new sire Wild Ruler and G1 winner I Am A Star all out of mares with the USA suffix.

She has class and scope and looks to be set for a strong racing career.
