NOMINATIONS CLOSE FRIDAY 11 AUGUST 2017


MESSAGE FROM VIN COX MANAGING DIRECTOR MAGIC MILLIONS

WE TAKE GREAT PLEASURE IN INVITING YOU TO NOMINATE YOUR YEARLINGS TO THE 2018 EDITION OF THE MAGIC MILLIONS YEARLING SALE SERIES. We are proud that the trend of strong growth across our yearling sales has continued at full steam. Vendors who support Magic Millions have benefitted with the company posting a record 2017 Yearling Sales gross of $196 million – an increased return to breeders of almost $54 million in just two years. These benchmarks are due to the real support from breeders – who look to Magic Millions for a safe pair of hands to help them achieve success in the sale ring. With surety and stability and regular new initiatives we are confident this collective success is sure to continue into the future. Since 2012 the overall Australasian Yearling Market has grown 58 per cent. Over the same period breeders supporting the Magic Millions Yearling Sales have enjoyed an 86 per cent increase. Whether it’s the Gold Coast in January, March or June, Launceston and Perth in February, or Adelaide in March, the Magic Millions Yearling Sales Series provides every opportunity to offer your yearling at a sale that ensures maximum return. There is no better marketing tool to attract buyers from around the globe to purchase a Magic Millions yearling than our lucrative Race Series. The Gold Coast Raceday which offers $10 million in prizemoney across nine races is developing into one the world’s feature racedays. It’s something we are truly proud to offer as a benefit for selling your yearlings with Magic Millions. It would be our privilege to inspect your yearlings, discuss with you their placement, then work tirelessly to attract the strongest buying bench to that 2018 auction.

We welcome your input and if you have any matters you wish to discuss, our bloodstock staff are at your service at all times, or please contact me personally. We look forward to receiving your yearling nominations and will continue, with your support, to provide a very exciting and thoroughly successful sales series in 2018.
