The Magic Millions March Yearling Sale was a much more anticipated event this year with the addition of 44 youngsters by the very exciting young sire Spirit of Boom. His progeny underscored the huge gains seen at the sale this year with the Sale averaging $45,795 up from $28,815 and a median of $26,000 and clearance of 86% for the 389 catalogued. The Spirit of Boom’s averaged an unprecedented $167,500!
Boomer Bloodstock was very active at the sale purchasing 8 yearlings on behalf of clients for $938,000 including the sale topper Lot 384 a filly by Spirit of Boom for $430,000. Boomer commented on his Spirit of Boom purchases: “We were determined to take home some nice fillies by Spirit of Boom and narrowed our focus down to 338 & 384. I’m a proud Queenslander and we have been waiting a long time for a stallion like Spirit of Boom. Both fillies look early types from running families and are from great nurseries in Eureka and Lyndhurst. They were both purchased for client Sean Tomlinson’s Hobby Horse Hall Racing Pty Ltd and will go into training with Tony Gollan. They were at the upper end of our values although that is the market and we didn’t want to go home without them. We have loaded up on I Am Invincible’s over the past couple of years and intend to do the same with Spirit of Boom’s”.
