MM Broodmares shine on Moir night at The Valley
25 Sep 2021
Friday night saw the first night meeting of the season at Moonee Valley, with an action packed five stakes races on the eight race card.
Two mares sold through our 2017 Magic Millions Broodmare Sale draft produced fantastic runners, adding to a number of great results for our broodmare graduates already in 2021.
Firstly, Decent Raine put in a huge run when she found clear running, to finish third in the Group 3 Scarborough Stakes (1200m). The three year old filly by Dissident is the first living foal from winning Thorn Park mare, Royal Raine (NZ). From a family packed with black type, Royal Raine was sold to Rosemont Stud for $75,000.
In the final race, the Group 2 Stocks Stakes over 1600m, the brilliant 4yo mare So You Assume lead all the way to record her third straight win. The daughter of So You Think is the first foal of Remlap’s Jewel (Choisir), a half sister to Group 1 winner Manawanui.
Remlap’s Jewel was sold to Lauriston Park Thoroughbreds carrying So You Assume for $80,000. So You Assume has now won five of her 12 starts and over $415,000. She stands to win a $1 million bonus if she can win the Group 1 Empire Rose Stakes on Derby Day at Flemington.
The progeny of our broodmare sales graduates have been building momentum as 2021 goes on and we’re delighted for everyone involved!
