Street Cry (IRE) still leads the sires by average list at the 2016 Magic Millions Yearling Sale after two sessions with nine youngsters averaging $369,444, but it was Snitzel that put the star power into the day with a pair of colts selling for upwards of $1million.
John Singleton's Strawberry Hill Stud produced the showstopper when their colt from 2006 Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Mirror Mirror fetched $1.6 million to the bid of Jadeskye Racing / Gerald Ryan.
The star colt is the third living foal of Dehere (USA) mare Mirror Mirror, whose first foal, stakes-winning Redoute's Choice filly No Looking Back, won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic in 2012, before losing the race on protest to stablemate Driefontein.
Strawberry Hill Stud purchased Mirror Mirror as a yearling at Magic Millions back in 2005 for $120,000, so she's proven to be an outstanding investment!
Also selling for $1.1 million earlier in the day was the Snitzel colt from Flidais. A full brother to Group I winner Sweet Idea, he was bought by Dean Hawthorne Bloodstock.
