Strong Start for Zoustar at Magic Millions

 In 2017, News

Respected bloodstock James Harron struck early at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale on Wednesday securing Lot 19, a powerful son of Zoustar, whose attitude and temperament marked him as something special.

Consigned by Widden Stud, the colt from Group III placed Stratum mare Via Laurentina fetched $580,000.

“I loved the way he handled the sale and held his condition and even put some on,” said Harron in his post sale comments.

“Attitude and temperament are so important when you want to keep these colts intact.”

Nobody knows this fact better than James Harron, who purchased Capitalist from this sale ring in 2015 for $165,000.

He won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and Golden Slipper before retiring to stud and his first yearlings are a highlight of the sale this year.

Widden Stud have kept Via Laurentina busy with our own sires and she has a weanling filly by Your Song and was covered by Nicconi last spring.

Zoustar ended session one with nine yearlings averaging $253,889 posting another big result with a $500,000 colt sold by Bowness Stud to Coolmore’s Tom Magnier from You’re Dreamin’.
