Aceland Stud will donate half the proceeds from its All American colt at the Tasmanian Magic Millions to the Salvation Army Bushfire Appeal.
“This is a great initiative from Aceland Stud owner Ace Shaw,” Magic Millions managing director Vin Cox said. “We’re delighted to be able to support the wonderful act of generosity and we hope the colt will be popular at the sale and raise a healthy figure for the Bushfire Appeal.”
The All American colt is the first foal of winning Belong to Me mare Whitemore Dynasty and has been catalogued as Lot 133.
Aceland Stud has entered 10 yearlings for the Tasmanian Magic Millions in Launceston on February 14 and will act as agent for another three. “Interest in the All American colt has been good and hopefully he can attract plenty of bids,” Shaw said.
“Life has been very good to me and this is a way of giving something back. The bushfires in parts of Tasmanian have devastated many and I wanted to be able to help contribute.”
Shaw is a major supporter of the thoroughbred industry, particularly in Tasmania where his sponsorship includes the Magic Millions 2YO Classic through Shaw Contracting.
Magic Millions has supported the initiative and will donate the sale entry fee and half of all commissions on the colt. As a bonus to the buyer, the colt will be sold having already been “paid up” for the Australia wide Magic Millions Race Series – a value of $3,300.
