A Lonhro filly from one of Australia's leading thoroughbred families has sold for a record price when topping a successful Magic Millions National Weanling Sale on the Gold Coast.
The filly, from the stakes winning mare True Blonde, was offered by Segenhoe Stud and was purchased by leading Sydney based bloodstock agent James Harron for $710,000.
There were bids flying from all points of the sale ring before Harron and New Zealand based agent Michael Wallace went bid for bid in a fierce battle to secure the star filly.
The price is the highest paid for a weanling filly at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale.
"She's a fantastic filly," Harron said. "We're delighted to secure her."
"It's one of the best families in Australia and she's an outstanding physical."
Lot 381"We're a fan of Lonhro and it's a lovely out cross for later on with breeding."
"She's a great filly," Harron said. "She handled the sale process really well. She's very relaxed and we're delighted to get her."
The progeny of exciting first season sire Foxwedge were popular again with his daughter of Group One winner The Party Stand selling for the day's second top price, $350,000.
Offered by Newgate Farm, the filly was purchased by Segenhoe Stud.
