Sensational MM Sale for Star Witness
Australia’s Leading Second Season Sire by winners, dual Group I winner Star Witness hit the heights early at the 2016 Magic Millions Yearling Sale when setting a new benchmark in the sale ring of $750,000.
Consigned for sale by Widden Stud, the powerhouse chestnut is the second foal of Fastnet Rock mare Hilton Head, a half-sister to Group II placed Straight Gold and daughter of Group III winner Golden Delicious.
He was bought by Magic Millions as agent for Alan Bell, who bought his three-quarter brother Star Turn (Star Witness x Golden Delicious) at this sale last year for $400,000.
Star Witness ended Book One with 10 yearlings sold at average $173,500, his top priced filly from Barangaroo fetching $200,000 for Kitchwin Hills when secured by McKeever Bloodstock.
