LOT 755 – Magic Millions ā€“ Headwater colt.

2021 Gold Coast Yearling Sale | Lot 755 | Headwater (AUS) | Scottish (AUS) (

Another great purchase identified by John Symons’ winning eye on the Gold Coast, purchasing Lot 755, a Headwater colt out of a Testa Rossa mare, Scottish.

Headwater is bred for speed, being by Newmarket winner Exceed and Excel, out of Oakleigh Plate winning mare, River Dove, and his progeny are ready made and having an immediate impact on the racecourse.


The granddam was a champion filly in New Zealand in Tartan Tights and her half sister Nevis was a listed placegetter in Sydney.

Monthly costs for 5% on average are around $200, and if you prefer, a flat monthly rate can be arranged to minimise surprises, by direct debit.

Watch the video below and find out why John Symons purchased him, and then under “Media”, have a look at what a professional he is being broken in… not wait, and get on board.
