A $65,000 Magic Millions purchase for Blueblood Thoroughbreds from the Baramul Stud draft, Better Harden Up is the first winner for Yalatif, a Hussonet (USA) grand-daughter of Christmas Spirit, whose descendants include Group I winners Bentley Biscuit and Thorn Park.

Baramul Stud will offer the current yearling from Yalatif, a filly by Exosphere, at Magic Millions as Lot 299.
