At the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale night session, Proven Thoroughbreds and trainer Steve O’Dea combined to purchase a daughter of SEBRING, the same sire of our Magic Millions 2YO Classic place-getter CANDIKA.
CANDIKA gave connections a great thrill in running a gallant third in the Gold Coast’s feature juvenile event, hours before lot 714 was knocked down to Proven Thoroughbreds for $65k.
The filly is out of FASTNET ROCK mare Waitomo Toka, a half-sister to Moonee Valley stakes winner OPPORTUNITY.
O’Dea was able to draw comparisons between CANDIKA and the SEBRING filly, a balanced type with big ears and a deep girth.
Proven Thoroughbreds has identified this filly as a ladies’ syndicate candidate, which carries a bonus of $500,000 distributed among the first four all-female owned horses in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic.
In this year’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic, the first all-female owned galloper home collected a bonus of $325,000, which was $145,000 more than the prizemoney CANDIKA received for third place!
