$3million Sunlight Brother Wins on Easter Monday

 In 2017, News

Kandinsky Abstract was the most expensive yearling in Australia in 2022 when sold by Widden Stud for $3million at Inglis Easter and the Zoustar colt posted his second win at Warwick Farm on Easter Monday.

The full brother to Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner and Champion 3YO Filly Sunlight, Kandinsky Abstract has been a work in progress at the Chris Waller stable winning his debut at Canterbury in May last year beating subsequent Group I ATC Randwick Guineas winner Celestial Legend.

A powerful colt with a muscular physique, he didn’t quite measure up to stakes class last spring when sent to Melbourne, so has been given an easier path to start off with this year.

With two recent trials under his belt, Kandinsky Abstract was sent off favourite for the 1200m Benchmark 72 event with James McDonald to ride and did his best work in the final furlong to poke his nose in front for a thrilling win.



He will no doubt take good improvement from the win and confidence going forward.

Purchased by Tom Magnier for the Coolmore partners, Kandinsky Abstract was bred by Widden in partnership and is the seventh winner from eight to race from Group III winner Solar Charged, who is also the dam of triple Group I winner Sunlight, Group III winner Sisstar and stakes-placed Sheika and Dio.

Her current two year-old is an unraced Zoustar filly called Clean Energy that was bought by Yulong for $2.6million at Magic Millions last year and has had one trial last November for a second placing and is in the Waterhouse Bott stable.

Widden Stud have had some massive sale ring results through selling yearlings from Solar Charged and will offer another Zoustar colt as Lot 304 at Inglis Easter this year.
