Mungrup Stud topped vendors at the Perth Magic Millions with turnover of $1.23 million and its champion sire Oratorio (Aus) led the averages among WA stallions.
Oratorio sold 12 lots at $51,667 to finish well ahead of Blackfriars ($39,052), Alfred Nobel ($38,250) and Frost Giant ($38,100) for sires with more than three sales.
His $170,000 colt from Agribiz (Key Business) was the most expensive among lots by local sires and third overall behind the Street Cry colt ($300k) and Commands filly ($210k).
Wally Mitchell will prepare the Agribiz colt and Oratorio’s top-priced filly will also head to Ascot to be trained by Trevor Andrews. She made $100,000 and is from Mungrup’s proven producer Atavism (Hennessy).
Mungrup shuttler Dick Turpin (Ire) had 22 yearlings change hands with his $70,000 leader targeted by Roy Rogers. The colt’s dam Rebellious (Key Business) is a sister to Hot Shot Brother and Cool Business.
