Brazen leads the way at MM Sale

The Sportsman Weekend - - Chartform - By SHAYNE O’CASS

DAR­LEY res­i­dent Brazen Beau has emerged as the pin­hook­ers sire of first choice among the class of 2015 retirees with some stun­ning re­sults at Magic Mil­lions Na­tional Sale.

Brazen Beau was the lead­ing first sea­son sire by av­er­age among 18 stal­lions whose prog­eny went through the ring at last week’s Gold Coast auc­tion of wean­lings.

Two his four wean­lings that changed hands were bought by Peter Ford on be­half of the fledg­ling Hilldene Farm lo­cated near Sey­mour in Vic­to­ria.

Ford paid $300,000 for the half-brother to Listed win­ner Shigeru Sen­dan and $270,000 for a grand­son of Key Bar Nights.

Both colts are likely to re­turn to the Gold Coast for 2018 Magic Mil­lions Year­ling Sale.

“Brazen Beau’s types are out­stand­ing,” Ford says. “We think he’s got a great future par­tic­u­larly go­ing into the new round of the sales in Jan­uary.

“As a farm, we needed to po­si­tion our­selves and get out brand out there are fol­low­ing up with some good mare pur­chases.”

Ford/Hilldene pur­chased seven wean­lings at the sale for a to­tal of $1.18m.

Next in line be­hind Brazen Beau in the Magic Mil­lions Na­tional Wean­ling Sale stand­ings were New­gate Farm trio Dis­si­dent, Wand­jina and Deep Field.
