Magic Millions sales success for Oakwood

AN Oakwood Farm-prepared Foxwedge filly is likely to remain on the Gold Coast under the care of trainer Melissa Leitch after a successful sale at last week's Magic Millions.

The bay filly was originally passed in, but sold to Stan Cox for $120,000 outside the ring.

Haigslea's Oakwood Farm owner Sheridan Victor said the filly was a full sister to two- year-old Vulpini, which had already showed potential on the track under the watchful eye of Leitch.

"We were really happy with the sale," Victor said.

"Clients of Leitch bought the filly, it's likely the horse will stay on the Gold Coast."

Oakwood Farm also prepared a Reward for Effort filly on behalf of Harvey Park which went under the hammer for $85,000 to Paul Duncan racing.

"They were both nice fillies," Victor said.

"It was probably a bit early in the year for them but they'll both mature into nice types of fillies."

While both of the Oakwood Farm-prepared horses remained in Australia, the Magic Millions sales at the Gold Coast last week attracted a number of overseas buyers. Victor said the number of overseas buyers had increased significantly since the 1990s.

"From back in the 90s to now, it was basically all Australian trainers, but it's evolved a great deal with a lot of overseas buyers," she said.
