Magic Millions – Shalaa colt.

John Symons has done it again on the Gold Coast, purchasing Lot 204, a Shalaa colt.

A champion French and Great Britain 2yo, a son of Invincible Spirit who is the sire of the champion sire, I Am Invincible. His progeny averaged around $250K at these sales, so to purchase this faultless colt at this price is testament to John’s ability.

The dam’s family is well known, and includes the star filly Libertini, her dam the well performed Aloha, and talented sprinter Malaguerra.

He is selling now for $3750 for each 5% share, which includes insurance for 12 months, Magic Millions Series nominations, transport, and the initial cost of breaking in. He has immediately been taken to the breakers for the above initial education and breaking in to ride. He will then be returned to the paddock for a break to further mature after which he will return to the breaker for completion of breaking in.
