Young Professionals in Racing (YPR) today announced a new partnership with leading bloodstock auction house Magic Millions.
The partnership allows YPR to undertake unique educational sessions with Magic Millions, as well as host functions around key industry events with the objective of attracting new racing fans and engaging existing young industry participants.
In connection with Magic Millions and the Gold Coast Turf Club, YPR will host a tour for members to the Gold Coast for the showcase Magic Millions Yearling Sale in early January that will also encompass the 2014 Jeep Magic Millions Raceday which offers $4.7 million in prizemoney and forms part of the World’s richest sales-based incentive Race Series.
The tour is not only a unique social experience with other like-minded racing fans during the ‘holiday season’, but also provides a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most successful Australian yearling sales, with members witnessing the excitement of a bloodstock auction alongside one of the most popular racing carnivals on the Australian calendar and Queensland’s richest race day.
YPR Chairperson, Kathryn Thomson is thrilled to announce Magic Millions as a foundation partner. “It’s very exciting to have an opportunity to take YPR interstate and provide events for our Queensland based members”.
“Magic Millions is a great fit with the YPR brand and their Carnival in January is such an iconic Australian racing occasion, which we look forward to showcasing to young racing fans”, said Ms Thomson.
The new partnership with YPR enables Magic Millions, based at the Gold Coast with further representation in Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, New Zealand and Asia, an opportunity to support the next generation of racing enthusiasts as well as build their presence in NSW.
Magic Millions Managing Director, Mr Vin Cox is hugely supportive of the group. “As a growing organisation within the racing industry, we see YPR as an exciting opportunity to further enhance our connection with the younger generation and support the industry in building a sustainable future”.
