An outstanding catalogue has been assembled for the 2010 Magic Millions National Horses in Training Sale. The HIT Sale will be conducted at the Gold Coast on October 27 & 28 and has attracted 400 quality readymade racehorses.
This year the sale will be preceded by breeze up sessions in three locations across two states. The action commences on September 20& 21 with two breeze up sessions at the Gold Coast Turf Club. There will also be breeze up sessions at Seymour (23 September) and Rockhampton (24 September).
The sale in recent years has unearthed a number of star gallopers including Shocking, Masquerader, Fifteen Carat, Graceful Anna, Deer Valley and Macau champ Viva Pronto.
This year’s catalogue is without doubt the best catalogue ever assembled for the sale with many of the region’s leading and most exciting sires well represented.
“The National Horses in Training Sale is particularly popular with international clients and we’re expecting great interest from Singapore, Macau, Hong Kong, Korea and Malaysia,” Magic Millions Managing Director David Chester said. “Importantly the sale is now regarded as a happy hunting ground for Australian buyers – the reigning Melbourne Cup winner was purchased from this sale for $64,000.”
