Xtravagant Colt Purchased On Day 1 At Magic Millions



We struck early at the 2021 Magic Millions sale with one purchase on Day 1. We're pleased to be bringing home Lot 32, the Xtravagant x All In The Reflexs colt- a horse that caught the eye of Jason Abrahams and John O'Shea when they initially inspected him the hunter valley last month. He was purchased for just $80,000+ GST which represents fantastic value given the Day 1 sale average of $248,169!

"John and I saw this beautiful colt in the Hunter Valley 3 weeks ago and loved him. He has looks, presence, and athleticism. His effortless stride is perfect given what we look for, and his attitude is bomb-proof. We had him at the top of our wish list. His pedigree suggests he will run a mile being by a son of Pentire in Xtravagant, and his dam won over 1400m - 1600m, and is a daughter of the great Curlin (Champion USA sire who was a Breeders Cup and Dubai Cup winner himself. He stands for $175K in the US, and his yearlings have sold up to $4.1M USD)." commented Jason Abrahrams after the purchase.

John O'Shea was also thrilled to have the colt join the team- " he's a very straight forward colt, has a good attitude, tremendous athleticism, and is by a value stallion in Xtravagant. I'm really excited to have this colt join my stable, I like what I see in King of Spades (Xtravagant) and was keen to get another colt like him to train."
