Narrikup’s Mungrup Stud has enjoyed a superb 2019 Perth Magic Millions Yearling Sale.

Mungrup Stud sold 27 yearlings at a strong rate of 84.38 per cent, with only five horses passed in.

Only Western Breeders Alliance had a larger gross from the two-day sale, with their figure of $1,133,000 just surpassing Mungrup’s mark of $1,032,500.

The average price of Mungrup’s yearlings was just over $38,000 and their best sale was lot 130, an Oratorio by Snuglet colt that fetched $115,000 and was sold to leading trainer Neville Parnham.

Adam Durrant snared an impressive Oratorio by The Danehill Rose colt for $110,000 that also came from Mungrup Stud.

The very first horse sold at the new Magic Millions venue in the Swan Valley was an Oratorio by Zabore Loch colt from Mungrup, which was bought by Paul Jordan for $55,000.

Albany trainer Roy Rogers spent up big over the two days, buying nine yearlings for a total of $376,500.

Rogers’ most expensive purchase was an $80,000 filly by Written Tycoon from Prete A Partir.

Fellow local trainer Steve Wolfe was also active, buying under the Commercial Bloodstock banner, including a Gingerbread — Miss Margene colt for $55,000 from Bellbridge Park.

Mt Barker’s Clare Downs Stud sold both its yearlings, with a Trade Fair by Around Jindabyne colt fetching $35,000.

Cheval Stud, also in Mt Barker, sold one yearling for $21,000 and its other horse was passed in.
