Widden Stud Sell $1million Zoustar Colt
It was another day and another seven figure sale for Widden Stud at the Magic Millions on Wednesday with an exceptional colt by Zoustar from Fuddle Dee Duddle knocked down for $1million.
Consigned by Widden Stud and bred in partnership with Michael Christian’s Saconi Thoroughbreds that operates from Longwood Thoroughbred Farm, the colt was bought by Victorian Alliance/Suman Hedge B’Stock (FBAA)/David Redvers Bloodstock.
“He was an outstanding colt, so reminiscent of his sire,” said Suman Hedge.
“He has the same head, the same movement, the same presence. We loved him from the moment we saw him and he was a real priority purchase.”
He is from Group III winning Red Ransom (USA) mare Fuddle Dee Duddle, a half-sister to Group II winner Hallowell Belle and to the dam of Group III winner Bella Nipotina.
Fuddle Dee Duddle has a colt foal by Trapeze Artist and was covered again by Zoustar last spring.
Zoustar is enjoying a great sale with 19 yearlings selling so far at an average $273,947 with other highlights on Wednesday being the colt from dual Group I winner Global Glamour that made $600,000 for Coolmore when bought by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott and the colt from Fortune of War that made $550,000 for Edinburgh Park when bought by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.
After two sessions, Widden Stud head the vendors by aggregate list having sold 16 yearlings for $6,830,000 and outside of the Zoustar colt, today our next best sale was a gorgeous I Am Invincible filly from Group II winner Flying Snitzel that was bought by Terry Snow’s Willinga Park Operations for $850,000.
