Magna Graduate's offering at the July 12 Fasig-Tipton yearling sale brought $40,000, eight times the stud fee of the Darby Dan stallion. The colt is part of the first crop of the multiple graded stakes winner and $2.5 million earner.

Darby Dan, as agent, had previously consigned the colt as a weanling to the Keeneland November sale, where he sold for $25,000.
