Racehorses wrap up Magic Millions National Sale

Value hunters soaked up the sunshine and left with some bargains during the concluding session of the Magic Millions National Sale at the Gold Coast on Thursday.

A general session of yearlings and a session of racehorses grossed over $600,000.  Top price came in the supplementary catalogue for the National Racehorse Sale when promising Shamardal filly Quick’s the Word sold for $64,000.

The Darley draft provided the next five top sellers in the Racehorse Sale headed by Typeface ($37,000), Kiev ($30,000), Hadron ($25,000) and Intaglio ($16,000).  The Racehorse Sale section averaged almost $5,000 at a clearance rate of 97%.

Earlier in the day, a general session of yearlings averaged $7,318 at a clearance rate of 62%.  Topping the 42 lots that changed hands were a pair of Baramul Stud colts by Bel Danoro at $22,000.

The colt from Geography was purchased for a Singapore based buyer while the youngster from Secret Sister was snapped up by Queensland’s Furlong Stud.

The National Sale grossed $37.66 million over two weeks of selling.  Some 1082 lots sold at an impressive sale average of almost $35,000 and clearance rate of 79%.

“We’re delighted with the results throughout the National Sale,” Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox reported.  “It was pleasing to see such a great buying bench on hand right from Session 1 with numerous interstate and international buyers at the complex.”
