THE Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale picked up where it left off, with Tuesday’s second session again realising great results across the board.
John McArdle’s Redgum Racing went to $160,000 for lot 216, a colt by Hard Spun from Al Samer mare Miss Chard, part of the Glenelg Park draft.
The colt is a half-brother to Tony McEvoy’s talented youngster Lessyd (Statue Of Liberty), who was third on debut in the G1X.com.au Plate (1000m) at Moonee Valley in December, and won over 1100m at Flemington in January.
“He’s a good, athletic, running-looking type. He comes from a two-year-old family and looks like he could make a two-year-old,” McArdle told G1X.com.au.
The G1-winning trainer has enjoyed plenty of success with Hard Spun’s progeny. Four-year-old Beau Rada, from Royal Academy mare Rada, has won six of his 20 starts and $148,830 in earnings, while Beau Rada’s brother, two-year-old Power Trip, was an impressive winner of the G3 Maribyrnong Trial at Flemington on debut last November.
“They are both well-performed two-year-olds, and Beau Rada’s trained on, so we’re happy to take another one home.
“We’ll take him home, break him in, and hopefully have him ready for the two-year-old races next year.”
Some of the owners from both Beau Rada and Power Trip have bought into the colt.
