New Zealand mare Savvy Coup was the subject of widespread interest on the Gold Coast on the opening day of Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.

The high-class daughter of Savabeel was supplemented into the auction and was purchased by Coolmore for A$1,000,000.

“She’s a lovely type with a lot of quality,” Tom Magnier said. “The team was very keen on her and she was bought for Justify. He’ll get a tremendous book, we’re very excited.”

Savvy Coup was originally bought out of Waikato Stud’s 2016 Karaka draft for $65,000.

Trained by Michael and Matthew Pitman, she won twice at Group One level and also claimed two Group Three events.

Other Kiwi mares to change hands included the Team Rogerson-trained Gift Of Power, who was purchased by Rosemont Stud in Victoria for A$800,000, the Baker-Forsman prepared stakes performers Marcellina (A$200,000) and Rubira (A$100,000) and the Ken Rae and Krystal Williams-Tuhoro trained Group Three winner Prom Queen (A$190,000).
