Magic Millions Ready To Run Starts Today
Following two days of breeze-ups at the Gold Coast Turf Club, a little over 100 2YOs will be put through the ring at the Gold Coast. The auction starts at 11am Queensland time. Despite the large number of withdrawals due to EI, a number of youngsters have breezed impressively over the 200 metres. These include Lot 402, a colt by Catcher In The Rye from Steel Shuffle who fairly sizzled when recording 10.15secs for the distance. All told 16 youngsters broke the 11sec barrier. Prospective buyers from Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Macau, Korea, Japan, South Africa, the Philippines and Iran were on hand to witness the gallops. "Vendors must be congratulated for the appearances and performances of their young prospects over both breeze up sessions," commented Magic Millions managing director David Chester. "I'm confident we'll see many high class city and stakes performers in both Australia and overseas graduate from this sale this year."
