A son of Haunui Farm stallion Iffraaj topped the Book 2 session of the Magic Million Gold Coast Yearling Sale on Monday.
Lot 1037 was knocked down to Orbis Bloodstock for $370,000, a record price for the Book 2 session.
Consigned by Willow Park Stud the colt is from the family of Gr.1 Golden Slipper (1200m) winner Belle Du Jour and Adelaide’s The Good wood winner Perfectly Ready.
Paul King, representing Orbis Bloodstock, confirmed the quality youngster would join trainer Kris Lees’ Newcastle stable.
“Obviously we had a good look at all the horses in the sale and come to Book 2 we thought he was the pick of them,” King said.
“He’s an athletic enough type of horse. We are probably going to take a bit more time with him. I’m not going to rush him as a two-year-old, we’ll give him more time to develop as a three-year-old.
“The breed seems to get better with a bit of age. He’s a nice horse who could be a nice Hong Kong prospect down the line.”
