Arrowfield Stud Magic Millions graduates have won 37 stakes races since August 1 2015, including 5 individual Group 1 winners (PROFONDO & HITOTSU this season!) and 5 stallions sold to stud.
“This is a well grown, good boned colt that can really move. I’d be shocked if THE AUTUMN SUN doesn’t make it as a stallion.”
By an exciting first season sire THE AUTUMN SUN – a 5-time Group 1 winning son of the breed shaping REDOUTE’S CHOICE. His racetrack record finished on eight wins from nine starts and he remains the only horse in history to have annexed the Caulfield, Randwick & Rosehill Guineas.
The first foal from IFFRANESIA (by SNITZEL) sold for $900,000 last year and has since won a trial by 6 lengths! This is the second foal purchased for just $150k + GST = incredible value! And in a show of faith in this mating, the breeders have since sent IFFRANESIA back to THE AUTUMN SUN with a foal expected later this year.
This genetic combination has already produced the record-setting 14-time Group 1 winner MELODY BELLE (by DANEHILL’s son COMMANDS from IFFRAAJ mare).
IFFRANESIA was a 9-time winner over short courses in Europe, including a stakes success in France.
