Magna Graduate's strong Midwest yearling sales results
RSS Feeds Tuesday, August 30, 2011
Darby Dan's Magna Graduate had a pair of yearlings bring solid prices at auctions in Texas and Iowa during the final days of August. With sales prices of $25,000 and $20,000, the duo from their sire's first crop brought 5x and 4x his 2011 stud fee of $5,000.

In Texas at the Fasig-Tipton summer yearling sale, hip No. 139, a bay filly, went for $25,000 to Lantana Equine from the consignment of Pelican State Thoroughbreds, agent, on behalf of Elm Tree Farm. The filly is the first foal out of No Warning, who is a half-sister to half-million dollar earner Rapid Proof.

At the Iowa Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association sale on Aug. 28, Magna Graduate had the third-highest priced seller, a yearling who went for $20,000 to perennial leading owner Maggi Moss.

The dark bay, hip No. 39, was consigned by Clifton Farm LLC and is out of the Houston mare Worldly Gal, who has already had four winners from five starters. Worldly Gal was stakes placed at Louisiana Downs and is a half-sister to Delray Dew, winner of over $310,000 and a pair of stakes at Prairie Meadows.
