Australia’s Number One Source for Racetrack Stars

Leading thoroughbred sales company, Magic Millions, has rounded out another racing season as the number one source for Australian racetrack stars.

With 104 individual stakes winners of 154 black type races, Magic Millions graduates had another 12 months to remember during the recently completed 2015 - 16 racing season.

The high class performances were led by the champion Winx, the highest rated Australian racehorse, and highest rated mare in the world.

During the season Winx remained unbeaten in seven starts, including five Group 0ne victories – the Epsom Handicap, W S Cox Plate, Chipping Norton Stakes, George Ryder Stakes and The Doncaster.

Bred by the Camilleri family’s Fairway Thoroughbreds, she was sold through the draft of Coolmore Stud for $210,000 at the Gold Coast Yearling Sale, Winx boasts a career record of 13 wins, three seconds, from 19 starts, with earnings of over $6.6 million

The clear favourite to be crowned Australian Horse of the Year ,Winx is out to make it back to back wins in racing’s major award, after the crowning of fellow Gold Coast Yearling graduate, Dissident, a year earlier.

Magic Millions 104 stakes winners during the season ranged from $1,800 to $720,000, and merged from 14 different auctions the company stages each year.

Tarquinn Shadow, winner of the listed Starstruck Classic in December, emerged as the company’s best value stakes winner of the season –a $1,800 purchase from the 2012 Perth Winter Thoroughbred Sale.

Another of the season’s great success stories was Sold for Song, a multiple stakes winner purchased for $2,500 from the Gold Coast Yearling Sale, with three wins and five placings from nine starts, Sold for Song has already earned connections over $350,000.

Classy stakes winners Alpha Miss, Cradle Me, Didntcostalot, Éclair Choice, Jumbo Prince, The Cleaner, and Timeless Prince, were others to have raced to stakes success last season, all purchased for $10,000 or less.

Black Heart Bart, a $20,000 Perth Yearling Sale purchase, won five stakes races during the season, including the Group1, the Goodwood in Adelaide, boosting his earnings to $1,979,694.

Another exceptional performer was Buffering, an international Group 1 winner, who at home scooped another two Group Ones, the $22,000 Gold Coast March Yearling from Racetree, has now earned a staggering $7,267,694.

During the 2015-2016 racing season Magic Millions graduates won about 5000 races in Australia alone, earning over $154 million, with no fewer than 620 Black Type races.

The 2016-17 season under way with the feature race, the Peter Lawrence Stakes, won by Gold Coast Yearling Sale purchase, Miss Rose de Lago.    


Top Prospects in Perth Winter Sale

Real opportunities will be presented to buyers on Sunday, June 26, with the Belmont Park Sales Complex hosting the Magic Millions Perth Winter Yearling and Thoroughbred Sales.

The catalogue of 156 lots by various sires, in particular the progeny of Blackfriars are always popular, he is a very much under rated sire

Lot 4 is a filly with a lot of appeal, her dam, Prime Knockout, is by Mossman, she has a winning pedigree and residual value as a broodmare with just two dams on the page, and could easily be a dual purpose filly when her racing days reach a conclusion.

The racehorse section features the Western Australian Derby winner, Respondent, including other city winners, Essayez, Express Dancer and Sheerkat.

Another highlight of the sales is the draft from Peters Investments, represented by 12 lots, the majority being proven racehorses.


Magic Millions Smashes All Records

Records meant little as they were continually broken on both days of the mare’s sales conducted by the Magic Millions on the Gold Coast.

The top of the market has never been stronger and that is never likely to change while quality race mares continue to attract worldwide attention.

The Magic Millions is showing the way as the leading breeding bloodstock sale in the Southern Hemisphere, and while sales of that magnitude can be presented there will be no shortage of international interest.  

Bounding, Lot 611, was clearly the star of the show, a daughter of Lonhro she really stole the show, a lovely mare with a stack of pedigree; she changed hands at $1.9 million.

She was well presented by Willow Park Stud, the interest was intense, she finally went to the bid of John Moynihan of Stonestreet Farm in the US.

He is becoming quite a regular on the Gold Coast, two ago years he purchased the Group1 winning mare, Miracles of Life.

Michael Wallace, bidding for the China Horse Club, showed delight in securing Crystal Flute by Encosta de Lago for $ 1.4 million, she is a recent Sydney winner from Monsoon Wedding, the family of Redoute’s Choice among the finest families in the studbook .

“World class pedigrees are hard to acquire, ‘Wallace said, “she’s a young mare, we can start her breeding now if we like,” he added.

“With pedigrees like this she’s a foundation mare that you have for the next 10 to 15 years, and build families and foundations from,” he said.

During the first session over $28 million was traded on 172 lots sold at an average price of $163,645, with a clearance rate 81 per cent.

Magic Millions Managing Director, Vin Cox, was delighted with the results on day one, with three lots selling for over $1 million, Bounding $1.9 million, Crystal Flute $1.4 million, Fontiton $1.1 million.

The Market Continued To Hold Up Well On The Second Day

Peggy Jean, by Myboycharlie, stole the show on the second day, offered by Yarraman Park as agent she was in foal to I Am Invincible, and finally knocked down to Widden Stud for $1 million, overall Widden purchased 11 lots.

You could not wipe the smile off Anthony Thompson face after the purchase of the mare, he is about half way home already as she is in foal to a crackerjack sire, plus an early service as well.

Lot 875 Surf Poet by Charge Forward $700,000 to Emirates Park NSW

Lot 944 Yosei a triple Group 1 winner by Invincible Spirit $580,000 to Sun B’stock Hong Kong

Record Magic Millions National Weanling Sale

Records tumbled across the board as spirited bidding helped the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale reach new heights in 2016.

A colt by leading sire, Exceed And Excel, topped the second day’s sale when knocked down to the bid of Damion Flower, purchasing the youngster in conjunction with Amarina Farm for $350,000.

The colt catalogued as Lot 270, offered by Rothwell Park, is the first foal of the unraced Artie Schiller mare Doctine, a half sister to the Group 2 winning sprinter and $1.5 million earner Rain Affair.

It was a memorable day for the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale with new benchmarks established across the board.

“It’s the highest grossing sale ever conducted in the Southern Hemisphere, and that’s a big number, “Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said.

“It’s a very much viable option for our breeders to consider and sell their horses 12 months earlier, and at the end of the day you could argue they are getting yearling prices.”

The gross over two days of selling rounded out over $17 million, up over $2.2 million on last year’s record breaking auction.

The clearance rate of 86 per cent was up from 79 per cent and the average price of $60,138 per lot is another record figure for the auction.

Deadline Looms For QTIS Pay-Ups

The final QTIS payment is now due to ensure your horses are registered and eligible for the substantial QTIS Bonuses.

The final payment is due by June 30th 2016; no late payments will be accepted.

The payment is $550 for horses who have first payment made ( all yearlings purchased in March meet this criteria –Magic Millions no longer provides QTIS payments for these horses)

If you have purchased a yearling that didn’t have the first payment made you are still able to register for QTIS by paying $1,540 by June 30 2016.

Racing Australia Update

The Thoroughbred Breeders Australia, and the TQOA, are working hard to stop the controversial move by Racing Australia to bring breeders under the Rules of Racing.

A wide campaign, nationwide, is collecting signatures from the major vendors of Inglis and Magic Millions Sales.

First Winner For Sepoy

Sepoy sired his first winner when She’s Positive won the Magic Millions Adelaide Two Year Old Classic, at Morphettville on Monday.

Sepoy has figured prominently with strong drafts at all the major sales, thoroug out the country his yearling s sold up to $1.6 million, at the Easter Sales $1.2 million, at the Magic Millions, a record average of $272,000 for a first season sire.

The Easter Sale will be a good barometer to see if he has retained his high popularity in the market place that I doubt.                                    

Sepoy was an outstanding two year old, one of the few that have won the Blue Diamond Stakes and the Golden Slipper Stakes, however, his progeny are not showing the precociousness that was expected, he has been slow off the mark with just the one winner from 15 starters that have raced 25 times.

A poor percentage, he will need to lift his game with his next crop
