Mungrup Dispersal Online with Magic Millions
One of Australia's most successful thoroughbred nurseries will team up with Magic Millions Online to disperse in August. Mungrup Stud, which for decades has produced some of the finest thoroughbreds in Western Australia, will present 167 lots as part of the Mungrup Stud Complete Dispersal Online Sale. The unreserved dispersal will feature 71 yearlings, 17 two-year-olds, two three-year-olds and 77 broodmares. One of Australia's leading black type producing operations, Mungrup Stud has produced the winners of two Railway Stakes, four Karrakatta Plates, five Magic Millions WA 2YO Classics and six Western Australian Guineas. "It will be an emotional time for all connected with the farm," Mungrup Stud CEO Ann Williamson-Croucher said. "Mungrup has undergone incredible development over 40 years. A need for the partners to move on, in different directions, resulted in a decision to close Mungrup and part of that process will be a dispersal of stock which has provided so much success over many years." The online catalogue including photos, videos and agent assessments will be available in mid-July. Bidding will open from 12pm (AWST) on 6 August and the countdown to the close of bidding will commence with Lot 1 from 12pm (AWST) on 11 August.
