Five-time stakes winner Dijon Bleu has been entered for the Magic Millions broodmare sale.

The connections of Dijon Bleu have decided that the New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year has nothing more to prove on the racetrack.

“We’ve entered her in the Magic Millions Broodmare Sale on the Gold Coast in June,” trainer and part-owner Lisa Latta told www.theinformant.co.nz today.

Bought for just $26,000 as a yearling at Karaka, the high-class daughter of Burgundy won six of her 11 starts and more than $306,000 in prize-money.

Dijon Bleu's victories included the Gr. 2 Sir Tristram Fillies’ Classic, Gr. 3 Gold Trail Stakes and Desert Gold Stakes, and the Listed O’Learys Fillies’ Stakes and Soliloquy Stakes. She also finished second in the Gr. 1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas.

The Magic Millions Gold Coast National Broodmare Sale will run from May 29 to June 2.
