A stunning colt by Sepoy has topped the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale and in doing so set an Australian record when knocked down for $1.2 million on Saturday night.

The first foal of former outstanding racemare Sister Madly, the colt was presented at the sale by Segenhoe Stud and after a fierce bidding battle was purchased by the US based Spendthrift Farm. He will head to the stables of Hawkes Racing.

The Segenhoe team purchased Sister Madly from the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale as a stud prospect for $1 million. She was a group two winner and group one placed, ironically to Sepoy, for her new connections before heading to stud.

Her first foal had always been a stand out and on Saturday night he proved it with Spendthrift Farm outlasting Hong Kong's George Moore to set a new record price for a first season sire representative sold at auction in the country.

"The number one is always physique," Spendthrift's Ned Toffey said of the Sepoy colt.

"He's a classy physical - just a classy looking horse."

Lot 637"He has a great walk and looks the part. He looks to us like a solid Australian horse and of course there was enough page there."
