$310,000 for Dreamscape Colt
24 September, 2013
Topping the opening session of the 2013 Magic Millions Horses in Training Sale at the Gold Coast on Tuesday was an exciting colt by Dreamscape from Jesta Sweetie.
Champion trainer John Hawkes went to a cool $310,000 to secure the youngster from the draft of Glenlogan Park.
There was intense interest in the colt after he set an all time record time for a Gold Coast breeze up earlier in the month when he scorched his 200 metre sectional gallop in 9.85 seconds.
A bid of $160,000 was announced before opening offers were called and auctioneer Julian Blaxland immediately announced the colt was “on the market.”
From there the price soared past $200,000 before hitting $300,000 and Hawkes countered with a $310,000 strike.
The striking chestnut colt from Jesta Sweetie will be raced by a group of well known racehorse owners and breeders, the majority of which are from Queensland.
“He’s just a natural athlete,” Hawkes said. “He’s a lovely balanced individual.
“Let’s just hope he can run that quick over 1000 or 1200 metres as he was over 200 metres.
“He’s had a month off since his breeze up so he’ll head to Sydney and go into work and take it from there.”
