Making a splash on the Gold Coast

It was no surprise to see leading Flemington trainer Mark Kavanagh secure a pair of quality youngsters by top international sire Street Cry at the second session of the Magic Millions yearling sale on the Gold Coast.

He went toe to toe with Hong Kong's George Moore to buy Baramul Stud's Villa Bled colt for $550,000.

"I bought him with a couple of good stable clients in mind," Kavanagh said. "But there's a few shares still available and he'll fill fast."

"The stable has obviously had a lot of luck with the breed with Whobegotyou and Shocking and others and this bloke is better bred than them and looks a better type at the same stage."

"I'm excited to buy him. You don't often see a horse of his quality and he really took my eye," Kavanagh added.

Watch the colt go through the ring

Kavanagh also signed for a Street Cry colt from World Peace, again from Baramul Stud, for $280,000.

Also amongst his purchases to the end of session four were lot 307 a filly by Domesday from Tiffin, lot 111 a filly by Manhattan Rain from North Flower, lot 561 a colt by Big Brown from Fedorova and lot 651 a filly by New Approach from Just a Kiseki.

It may have been a quiet Spring, but Kavanagh Racing’s team has been set for the Summer period. With a lot of inexperienced young horses set to race in the next few months the stable is happy with their decision to bypass the Spring and take advantage of the excellent pastures and give their horses a little for time, and the way the horses have developed is testament to the fact they made the right move.
