Mungrup Stud’s next wave of yearlings
Mungrup Stud is preparing for another busy Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale which starts on Monday, with 36 horses from the Narrikup nursery up for sale.
The team from Mungrup Stud headed to Perth yesterday with a draft of 36 horses, mainly consisting of Playing God, I’m All The Talk and Oratorio progeny.
WA’s leading sire is Playing God and I’m All The Talk is WA’s leading first-season sire.
This season’s Group 1 Kingston Town winner Kay Cee has been part of Playing God’s success, with 24 individual winners and 53 victories from 41 lifetime starters.
Nine horses from the first crop of foals out of I’m All The Talk, produced the locally trained Watch Me Dance that ran third in last Saturday’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic.
Full brother to Platoon, who ran third in last year’s Group 1 Railways Stakes, a Playing God- Oriel colt (lot 78) has attracted plenty of attention along with lot 95 an Oratorio-Rubitawny colt that is the full brother of Misty Metal.
Mungrup Stud’s Ann Croucher said staff were again hoping for a successful time at the sales.
“We are over the moon with how our sires are performing,” Ms Croucher said.
“Playing God’s stats are exceptional — it’s really exciting. I’m All The Talk is also catching people’s attention. He was extremely fast as a two-year-old himself and his progeny look to be following in his footsteps.
“We are the only consignors of Playing God’s at the Perth Magic Millions, our yearlings are a quality group and we expect them to be in demand.”
The sales will be held at the Swan Valley complex on Monday and Tuesday.
Mt Barker’s Clare Downs Stud has four yearlings at the sales and Cheval Park Stud will offer up two youngsters.
