The Goodman family’s Mt. Brilliant Farm went to A$1-million (US$667,900) for a Wootton Bassett (GB) half-sister to the Hong Kong star Golden Sixty (Medaglia d’Oro) at the Magic Millions Gold Coast National Broodmare Sale Tuesday.

“We love the filly, she’s got a beautiful pedigree and she’s by Wootton Bassett. It doesn’t come any better than that and we are thrilled,” said Hutton Goodman.

The operation is no stranger to the Australian industry with several mares located in the Hunter Valley.

“It is hard to buy yearlings like her and she ticked all of our boxes. There is a lot of American stuff in there which will help us if we eventually bring her home,” Goodman said.

The filly is a half-sister to six winners, including Golden Sixty of course, but her Group 2-winning dam Gaudeamus (Distorted Humor) has also produced two stakes placegetters and two metropolitan winners. Like Golden Sixty, she was bred by Element Hill and was part of their unreserved dispersal.

The sale was topped by Zhijun Zhao (Yulong as partners) landing 10-time Group 1 winner Imperatriz (Aus) (I Am Invincible {Aus}) for an Australasian broodmare prospect record of A$6.6 milllion (US$4,408,140).
