Successful Adelaide Venture
18 Mar 2022
The team have returned home from Adelaide this week, where Willow Park presented our first ever draft of yearlings at the Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.
With a draft of seven yearlings by a range of proven sires, we sold five of those to fantastic new homes, for an aggregate of $485,000 and average of $97,000, sitting fifth on the leading vendors by average list and well above the sale average of $58,736.
Topping the draft was lot 110, the colt by Fastnet Rock out of stakes winner Espresso Martini, sold to Group 1 Bloodstock and Kennewell Racing for $150,000. Our second top lot saw a super result for staff members Jade Rossington and Lisa Richards, who sold their So You Think colt out of Gemini Miss (pictured) for $105,000. These two colts were also both the equal top priced yearlings by their respective sires sold in Adelaide.
Having completed four yearling sales so far this year with great results, we have just Inglis Easter left for the yearlings, with a small but quality draft to present!
