Mark’s Mail – 1 June

Mark Chittick

The Magic Millions Broodmare sale certainly was very strong, and I was wrapped to see WS-bred Savabeel mare Diademe fetch $1.7 million and fellow home-bred O’Reilly mare Bonny O’Reilly sell for $825,000. It was also great to see Dormello’s Savabeel mare Santuzza sell extremely well for $575,000.

Last weekend, WS-bred and sold Ocean Park filly Another Dollar came painfully close to winning the Group One QLD Oaks and I must admit, it was a bitter pill to swallow after she had been runner-up in her last two starts – both at Stakes level. Nonetheless, Ocean Park has had a huge season with two Group One runner-up horses, six Stakes performers and a Stakes winner.

We’ve had our fair share of frosty mornings this week but have enjoyed a beautiful week of weather at the farm. The weanlings are growing, the horses are healthy and in exactly three months’ time, we’ll be opening the serving barn doors for another action-packed season.

Have a great weekend.

Cheers,
Mark
