$350,000 Colt Stars for Stratum
Gold Coast – Leading young sire Stratum proved popular at the 2013 Magic Millions Yearling Sale with 14 of his stock averaging $150,714.
The Golden Slipper winning son of champion sire Redoute’s Choice achieved his best result with a terrific colt from Group II winner Umaline that was secured by the Hong Kong Jockey Club for $350,000.
The handsome bay was consigned for sale by leading South Australian based vendors Mill Park and is a half-brother to stakes-winner Fasline and stakes-placed Furline from the family of Group I AJC Epsom Handicap winner Captain Sonador.
Also snapped up by the Hong Kong Jockey Club for $250,000 was a Stratum colt from Snippets mare Provoking, a full sister to Group III winner Legally Bay and half-sister to Group III winner Time Out.
The colt was offered by Highgrove Stud and is closely related to this season’s Group II winner Jolie Bay.
