Nicconi and Zoustar Colts Star at Adelaide MM
Colts by Nicconi and Zoustar shared top honours on Day Two of the 2020 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale when selling for $140,000 at Morphettville on Wednesday.
Traders looking for athletic prospects for the 2YO sales later this year continued their buying spree at the sale with the top two sellers in the second session being snapped up by Breeze Up Bloodstock.
The first of the top sellers came when the team from Breeze Up Bloodstock went to $140,000 to secure the Zoustar colt from I’m a Flying Star.
Presented by Leneva Park Thoroughbreds, the colt is the first foal of an Adelaide and Melbourne winning Starcraft mare who hails from the family of Magic Millions flagbearer Snippets as well as Not a Single Doubt, Oohood and this season’s 2YO group winner King’s Legacy.
Later in the afternoon a colt by Nicconi was also snapped up by Breeze Up Bloodstock when presented by loyal sale supporter Balcrest Stud.
The colt is the first foal of the two time winning and city performed Choisir mare Life’s Zerprise and is from a strong winning South Australian family.
Zoustar also sired the highest priced filly of the sale with a filly from Phyl’s Choice made $160,000 on Tuesday for Armidale Stud when snapped up by McEvoy Mitchell Racing.
“She’s a beautiful flowing filly with a lot of scope,” said McEvoy, who knows a good Zoustar filly when he sees one as the trainer of Champion 3YO Filly Sunlight.
“I inspected her five times and her temperament stayed the same the whole way through.
“Armidale Stud do a tremendous job and they presented her so well.
“Zoustar fillies can be a bit feisty but she is just gorgeous and I am so happy to be able to buy her.”
