Juvenile colt stamps himself as one of Australia's most valuable stallion prospects.
The first Western Australian crop of Kentucky-based sire War Chant made a splash on day one of the Magic Millions Perth yearling sale Feb. 18, with a filly sold for the day's highest price and three colts among the top 10.
Market indicators were up across the board Jan. 8 on the first day at Australia's Magic Millions Gold Coast yearling sale, where a colt and a filly tied for the top price of $450,000 ($402,433 in United States funds).
The Tattersalls autumn horses in training sale ended its four-day run Oct. 27 in England with a median price that was the same as a year ago.
Last Love, a half sister to Australian group III winner Brief Embrace (by Irgun), was the most expensive horse sold May 31 during the third and final session of the Magic Millions national broodmare auction in Australia.
