William Johnson Bloodstock secured the day’s top lot on Day 2 of the 2024 Magic Millions Gold Coast National Weanling Sale when lot 297, an imposing daughter of the Champion Sire I Am Invincible, was knocked down for A$800,000 on behalf of Hill ‘n’ Dale at Xalapa.

The fact that this is one of Australia’s most prolific black-type families was not lost on this filly’s new owners, with William Johnson explaining that the Sikura family of Hill ‘n’ Dale have been keen to tap into the best Australian bloodlines.

“Racing is a global sport,” Johnson said, “and the Sikuras love these well-bred fillies with great physiques. Their investment here is a great endorsement for Australian racing.”

This is not Hill ‘n’ Dale’s first Australian venture into the sales; earlier this year they purchased an I Am Invincible yearling filly out of the dual Group winner Madam Rouge (Zoustar).in partnership with Gai Waterhouse, Adrian Bott and William Johnson for A$1.7 million.

Johnson said that no trainer has been decided upon for this filly. “We will let her grow out and go from there,” he said.
