Tony McMahon joins Magic Millions

Tony McMahon has joined Magic Millions in the build up to the 2011 QTIS 600 yearling sale.

McMahon is an accomplished race-caller and is a familiar voice and face of racing in regional Queensland.  He will be responsible for co-ordinating tour groups from around Queensland for the March Sale.

Since being introduced in 2009, the Magic Millions QTIS 600 yearling sale has quickly established itself on the national sale calendar.  With the accompanying bonuses the sale has been particularly embraced by Queenslanders – with a large number of buyers converging on the Gold Coast from regional and provincial centres.

McMahon said he was delighted to bring racing industry participants to the Gold Coast from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay and Rockhampton.

“The QTIS 600 bonus scheme has been a salvation of racing in country Queensland and has produced some outstanding juveniles in the process,” McMahon said.  “It allows for the little country owner and trainer to race for elevated prizemoney that just a few years ago was unheard of in the bush.”

“My wife Jean and I have co-ordinated and led a Rockhampton tour group to the March Magic Millions yearling sale for the last 12 years.  I can thoroughly recommend the tours as a unique concept that allows country racing folk the rare opportunity of mixing business with pleasure with the minimum of expense.”
