Whittington colt sizzles in breeze-up

2 min read

A colt from the first crop of Whittington has starred on the third day of breeze-ups for the Magic Millions Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale.

The colt was one of 76 2-year-olds to breeze on Monday at the Gold Coast following the breezes at Warwick Farm and Seymour last week.

Lot 220, a supplementary lot from the draft of Alexia Fraser Bloodstock, stopped the clock at 10.03s for the 200 metre sectional.

Whittington, who stands at Grandview Stud in Queensland, won a Breeders' Plate as a 2-year-old and also won a Listed Lightning H. He also broke the Gold Coast track record while winning the 2014 Magic Millions Sprint.

A colt by ill-fated stallion Hinchinbrook (Lot 211) went in 10.18s, while Lot 208 by The Factor (USA) also broke 10.20s.
