The build up to the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale might be in full swing, but for leading South Australian nursery Mill Park it's just the start of a busy two weeks with the Magic Millions Yearling Sale in Adelaide to follow hot on its heels on March 13 and 14.
The Watson family run Mill Park is a name synonymous with quality and the list of superior runners raised on their vast paddocks is a virtual who's who of Australian racing.
Fawkner, Southern Speed, Happy Trails, Rebel Raider, Serious Speed, Captain Sonador, Go Indy Go, the list goes on… with the current star performer being exciting three year-old filly Booker.
A $230,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Mill Park draft, Booker was a Group II winner in the spring and ran a game fourth last Saturday in the Group I MRC Oakleigh Plate behind Russian Revolution beaten less than half a length.
The daughter of Written Tycoon has already won over $400,000 in prizemoney and promises to be the next Group I winner to fly the Mill Park flag.
Full brother to a winner and is fourth foal of an unraced half-sister to stakes-winner Court Connection and daughter of stakes-winner Imperatrix from the family of Group I winners Curata Storm and Voile D'Or.
