Your best source of Exhilaration

Wouldn’t you know it, no sooner do we sign off our latest Magic Millions 2023 ad than our 2021 graduate Noah ‘N’ A Deel updates the Arrowfield tally of stakes performers!

The Les Kelly-trained daughter of Maurice and Double Deel (by Dundeel) capped a fine campaign when she ran home strongly for 2nd in Saturday’s $250,000 Grand Prix S. 2100m G3 at Eagle Farm.

She is the 44th stakes performer to emerge from Arrowfield’s 2016-21 Magic Millions consignments, a group that includes 19 stakeswinners, 4 of them Group 1 winners: Hitotsu, Tagaloa, Profondo & Invader. 

To put it another way, 1 in every 8 yearlings we’ve offered at those six sales on the Gold Coast has earned black type status. 

That’s a lot of exhilaration, purchased for prices from $30,000 to $1.9 million. 

And many of those graduates are still progressing. Noah ‘N’ A Deel has now won three and placed three times from nine starts, returning a nice margin over the $100,000 paid for her by Waverley Park Lodge. 

Her jockey Sean Cormack won’t be surprised if she proves competitive in next year’s Queensland Oaks G1. Neither will we – Maurice, Dundeel & her Australian Oaks-placed grand-dam Aliyana Tilde all bring stacks of high-class speed & stamina to her pedigree. 

And really, we should have expected a quick update on our advertised statistics. After all, in the past 15 months alone, 17 Arrowfield Magic Millions graduates have compiled 30 black type performances, a list headed by Hitotsu & Profondo, $2.6 million earner Count De Rupee, and stakeswinners Bend The Knee, Dzsenifer, Flying Evelyn, Soaring Ambition & Wee Nessy. 

And the updates keep on coming: the online listings for more than half of Arrowfield’s 63-lot Magic Millions 2023 draft already have pedigree updates. Naturally including Lot 800, Noah ‘N’ A Deel’s half-brother by Shalaa, and Lot 591, the Written Tycoon-Aliyana Tilde colt.
