Spendthrift Snaps Up Lunar Light
Group-performed 3YO filly Lunar Light topped the Magic Millions Online Sale (2-4 June) when she sold to Spendthrift Australia for $160,000. One of the quality offerings as part of a Reduction Sale from Goldin Farms, Lunar Light was offered as a racing and breeding prospect and was the subject of strong bidding from interested parties. A winner of three races in succession with trainer Will Clarken, Lunar Light earned black type when she was third in the Group Two Angus Armanaso Stakes at Caulfield in February. Lunar Light, a daughter of Akeed Mofeed, is from the stakes winning Malibu Moon mare Lunar Mist and hails from a strong international family. "She's a lovely filly," Spendthrift Australia General Manager Garry Cuddy said. "Her ratings on the track are quite good and it was a good opportunity to grab a nice pedigree. We're now working on whether we will try and win another race or two with her or she comes to the farm to be served. Malibu Moon needs no introduction and she's the perfect type of mare to send to either Omaha Beach or Vino Rossa," Cuddy added.
