A beautiful bay filly by champion sire I Am Invincible set a new record price a weanling filly sold at the Gold Coast when making $800,000 at the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale on Monday.

Consigned as part of the Element Hill Dispersal, the second foal of stakes-placed Not a Single Doubt mare Single Blonde was purchased by Hill ‘n’ Dale Xalapa/William Johnson Bloodstock.

William Johnson purchased the filly for leading US based buyers John and Jes Sikura from Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm.


“The filly presented as a lovely physical and she’s by the best stallion in the country,” said a delighted Johnson.

“Fast forward to January in 2025 you’re trying to buy those style of fillies. So to be able to secure her now is a plus and hopefully she can reap the rewards on the track.

“John Sikura and his son Jes bought a filly in partnership with the Waterhouse team in January – the I Am Invincible out of Madam Rouge. This is a similar idea – trying to have more well bred fillies who are lovely physicals in training in Australia.

“We’ve got excellent prizemoney in Australia and it’s an endorsement on the Australian racing and breeding industry that someone like John Sikura and his family are investing in the game.

“Element Hill has bred a lot of top horses and on a day like today with an unreserved dispersal it gives everyone an opportunity to invest in their lovely pedigrees that they have built up over the last 20 years.

“As you would have seen today is a lot about pin-hooking and trying to get a return in January, whereas this filly has been bought with the long term ideal of racing – so we’ll let her grow out and put her into training.”
