Go Racing fillies strike Gold on the Coast

Go Racing fillies strike Gold on the Coast

Two exceptional Go Racing broodmare prospects have sold well at the Magic Millions National Broodmare sale at Gold Coast yesterday.

No More Tears fetched the price of A$550,000 (almost NZ$600,000).

The five-year-old Darci Brahma x Ocean of Tears mare won several listed races and had a career climax in 2016 winning the Group 3 Mr Tiz Trophy and placing second in the Group 2 Foxbridge Plate.

Say Racing Manager Albert Bosma, “Obviously we are very happy with this result and I wish the new purchasers all the best with her. She is a horse that provided many thrills and highlights throughout her career and to be able to sell her for this sort of money, when she was bought for NZ$75,000 puts the icing on the cake for her syndicate owners.” 

Ruud Not Too (Bernardini x Too Many Diamonds) sold for A$500,000 (almost NZ$550,000).

Ruud Not Too won over $230,000 in prize money and her victories included, the 2017 Group 2 Rich Hill Mile in 2017, the Rising Star Stakes in 2016 and the Royal Descent Stakes this year, as well as a Group 2 placing as a three-year-old in the Eight Carat Classic.

“There is always very good money for well-bred fillies and a bit of black type makes these fillies extremely valuable. We already have three black type performers from our three-year-old crop this year and their owners will do very well out of them when they are sold in the future. We pride ourselves on selecting these fillies at great value.”

Go Racing will be looking for their next champion at the Gold Coast yearling sale next week.
