Beautifully-bred Flying Artie colt completes Magic Millions haul
Our fifth and final purchase from this year’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale is a crackerjack of a colt by FLYING ARTIE – the World Champion 3YO Sprinter who leads this year’s first-season sire standings by winners!
This striking colt is the first foal out of a multiple stakes-placed mare and boasts a pedigree page littered with black-type!
A scintillating winner of the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes, Flying Artie has made an impressive start to life at stud, with his three winners to date spearheaded by the stakes-placed The Art Of Flying!
This colt is a real looker and hails from a terrific female family.
1st dam – Winner and STAKES-PLACED as a 2YO
2nd dam – Winner as a 2YO and STAKES-PLACED as a 3YO
3rd dam – STAKES WINNER as a 2YO
If that wasn’t enough, this colt also shares a pedigree page with a Classic winner in the shape of the hugely talented SOVEREIGN, who beat Caulfield Cup runner-up Anthony Van Dyck by SIX LENGTHS when taking out the Group 1 Irish Derby in 2019.
“A balanced and great-moving colt from an impressive international family choc full of stakes grade horses.” – Michael Ward.
This exciting prospect will be trained by the multiple Group 1-winning partnership of PETER & PAUL SNOWDEN, who tasted further big-race success on Saturday with AIM taking out the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas on the Gold Coast.
Shares will be available in the coming days and this colt has already attracted plenty of interest!
