Lot 950 is a colt by Merchant Navy from the Pentire mare What A Diva, a multiple metropolitan winner in NZ and half-sister to a Group 1 winner and a Listed place-getter that's produced a multiple stakes-winner. in Australia.

Is knocked down for just $20,000, but certainly has a $100,000 plus pedigree based on results at the sale.  He looks ok to me without being amazingly athletic in his photo and video so his x-rays must have been diabolical.  Would've taken him in the bargain competition had he not gone to a fledgling trainer without a win to his name.

Have I missed something in the conformation department?

A boof head is the only detractor to me Confused I reckon he just got lucky, similar to Mick Price a few lots earlier with 902, a Smart Missile colt for only $35k, also a bit boofy Wink
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

Yes I do furious , game as Ned Kelly , there are no " looking " races LOL but the heart was ginormous , a genuine racehorse if ever there was one , old Arthur Didham had before his tragic breakdown in Perth lthough he was with TJ when he broke down , he came back and won by 10 lenghts first up over 2000 mts, never forget him.

2020 Magic Million sales were a record amount.

This year's sales broke that record by $30 million. What recession ?

I loved him so much I had a poem published in Racetrack magazine when I was 13 about him.  Got him in the sweep for the Melbourne Cup when he first came across from NZ and tried to swap him for Silver Knight but my sister wouldn't be in on it!  But he soon won me over.  Just couldn't compete with Silver Knight on the looks department.  But on the whole a much better horse.

Isn't it funny how a good old fashioned sweep can get you interested in horseracing. My 1st memory of a racehorse was getting a kiwi(?) stayer called Lord Metric in the family and friends Melb Cup sweep. Think it was about '74 or something and i was still in single digits. From there my early recalls were youngun's like Vivarchi, Happy Kitten, Desirable, Market Garden, Cap Dantibes and champs like The King and The Man of course.
 
To this day the ol man still runs Cup sweeps to induct(or try to) the young grandkids etc into loving racehorses.

If you look at the share market, those who kept their pants dry are at least no worse off than they were 12 months ago (just before WHO declared a pandemic). Those who were able to buy in at the bottom (around 10-14 days after the pandemic was declared on March 11-12) have made out like bandits.

It's all relative Take2.  For instance, he's got a far more attractive head than you mate.

No opinions, good bad or worse, about the Perth MM filly?

And will one or two suspect, given some of our recent stakes performing home-breds, why we were at all interested in her?

I Like her front and like the fact she is not presented like a stud bull!! can only be a plus for her future.
Her hind end is questionable but in saying that I think it is most likely not a true balanced picture.
Good luck with her SC very exciting looking at her page.

I see Slots in her pedigree ! Just by the by.  Interesting story to her.  Blokes we know bought her out of a Patinak dispersal for approx ( all my figures her are approx , so give or take a bit ), $1800 and she hadnt done much.  They won almost $300 thousand with her.  Sold her to Torryburn for approx $250 thousand. Her first yearling went thru the Gold Coast MM with a reserve of $60.000 and brought $120.000 ( from BAD memory ) this year tho so you can check, right at the end of the sale.  And they have bought into it, so lets hope the luck rolls on for them, and you, SC.
We all had a great deal of fun and pleasure out of Slots, with race days, wins, etc.

Great background story there AA.  Star  Theirs is a similar story to us: we purchased an aging sister to Savana City (see above pedigree) for just $3,500.   

This mare produced two city winners for us including the prematurely deceased Treasury Notes, dam of three times stakes-winner Money Maher.  Which almost needless to say is a key reason for us purchasing a share the above filly.
