There is black type galore on the pedigree of this filly that John Symons shrewdly purchased as Lot 144 at the March Yearling Sale at Magic Millions on the Gold Coast.

2021 Gold Coast March Yearling Sale | Lot 144 | Starcraft (NZ) | Flying Flywheel (AUS) (

Starcraft was the champion racehorse that won 11 races from 1400m-2400m including the Australian Derby and is the sire of some 350 winners, including champion 2-3yo and sire Star Witness. On the dam side well known horses include Eagle Way, Thermal Current, Soaressa, Assertive Eagle, Impressive Eagle, and Forever Free; quite a winning family!..

This filly is Magic Millions and QTIS paid up and eligible, and these bonuses are a very lucrative proposition for well placed horses.

She is also fully insured for the next 12 months.

Monthly costs average $200 for each 5% and direct debits can be arranged if you prefer.

Watch and listen why John Symons purchased her:
