Perth Magic Millions vendors were back in the spotlight at Ascot on Saturday following a record-breaking week for the local industry in the Swan Valley.

Forest View Farm owners Ben & Jo Duncan were straight out of the blocks in the opening race with Filthy Habits.  The south-west couple sold the son of I’m All The Talk for $80,000 at the 2021 Magic Millions and kept a share in a partnership managed by Justin Warwick.

Filthy Habits (4g I’m All The Talk – Dirty Vegas by Lucky Owners) has earned $197,000 including Westspeed bonuses of $78,800 and he was all out beating Zackariah Beau (Blackfriars) in the MacMahon Hcp (2200m).

“It was the first time he was getting out to 2200m since coming to us last year,” trainer Brandon Fiore explained.  “We thought he would run the distance but it was heart-in-mouth at the finish.  Lucy (Fiore) rated him perfectly in front and there’s another race for him on Bunbury Cup Day in a fortnight.”

Forest View averaged over $100,000 for six yearlings at the Magic Millions with top-priced fillies by Playing God ($210,000) and Hanseatic ($150,000) purchased by Lindsey Smith and Brad Widdup respectively.

Alwyn Park owner John Andrew marked 50 years as a vendor at Perth Yearling Sales and the celebrations continued when Marocchino completed a double for his sire Maschino in the LR Detonator Stakes (1800m) at Ascot.

Maschino mare Bonjoy won the first-leg in the Amelia Park Hcp (1600m) for trainer Jason Miller.

She was a $60,000 graduate from Alwyn Park’s 2021 consignment and has now earned $282,000 from 7 wins in 13 starts.

Westspeed has bumped her prizemoney with bonuses of $112,000.

Marocchino (Photo / Western Racepix) struck for the sixth time at black-type level for trainer Lou Luciani and his partner Trish Roberts who bred and race the stable favourite with Mark & Paul Luzi.  Back-to-back wins in the Detonator Stakes sent his earnings to $1.44 million.  Westspeed has tipped in $231,000.

His dam Comesitbesideme (McFlirt) won at Ascot when trained by Roberts but was retired after going blind in one eye.  Her other foals by Maschino include this season’s York winner Shakerato, 3yo gelding Frappuccino who is knocking on the door after placings at Bunbury and Pinjarra and a yearling filly by the son of Encosta de Lago.

The top-priced Maschino in the Swan Valley was Alwyn Park’s filly from Classical Snow (Lot 36).  Keith Biggs bought her for $170,000 and he was back in the frame on Sunday as the breeder of LR Pinjarra Classic (1300m) winner River Rubicon (Rubick).
