On mares with upside.....

21 Oct 2021

Back in 2019, we sold a Star Witness mare named Temolie at the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale. Carrying her first foal by Super One, she was purchased by Edinburgh Park Stud for $130,000.


At the time of sale, Temolie's half sister Invincibella (I Am Invincible) was a triple Group 2 winner of $2 million. She went on to win the Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara a few weeks later, before claiming her second Magic Millions Fillies and Mares race, taking her earnings over $3 million. She was then sold at auction for $1.3 million and produced her first foal, a Justify filly, a few weeks ago.


Half brother, Secret Blaze (Sizzling), was a stakes placed winner of two races and $175,000 at the time of sale and is now a dual stakes winner, with seven wins and $715,000 to his name. 


On Saturday at Caulfield, a third stakes winning sibling was the star of the show, when Extreme Flight (Extreme Choice) won the Listed Gothic Stakes, his third consecutive win in just five starts.


Temolie was onsold in May this year to Rich Hill Stud for $200,000 and exported to New Zealand, where she has produced a filly by Castelvecchio. She is proving to be an astute buy for Rich Hill!


Also on Saturday, Decent Raine added a second stakes placing to her record in the Listed Reginald Allen Quality at Randwick. By Dissident, she is the first live foal of Royal Raine (Thorn Park) who was sold through our 2017 MM Broodmare Sale draft for $75,000 to Rosemont Stud.


We also had an eye on the Breeze Ups for the Karaka Ready To Run Sale earlier in the week, where a colt by Astern from Dragon Robe (Alamosa) ran the fastest time of 10.45 seconds over the 200m. Dragon Robe was another member of our 2019 MM Broodmare Sale draft, carrying this colt. She was sold for $75,000 to Bruce Perry and Milan Park.


Another family that has had multiple updates, Dragon Robe had two unraced half sisters by Sacred Falls at the time of her sale, All Hallows Eve and All Saints Eve, who are both now Group 3 winners. For good measure, their half brother Hasabro has also gained black type in that time.
