An athletic colt by Rothesay from a five-time winning mare was bought by Proven Thoroughbreds on the opening day of the Gold Coast Magic Millions National Yearling Sale.
Trainer Steve O’Dea purchased the horse, lot 1687, on behalf of Proven Thoroughbreds for $31k.
The colt will be trained by Steve at Eagle Farm and is eligible for the lucrative $10 million Magic Millions raceday for the duration of his career as well as all the QTIS bonuses. Queensland prizemoney has also undergone widespread increases over the past 18 months.
Pointe Dancer, the dam, won five races during her career when trained by Steve and this is her first foal. She is out of a half-sister to the South African stakes winner Miss Scaramanga.
