“Probably the one indicator for me was that a lot of sales you might have two or three people bidding. Every horse here had five or six people bidding and all 19 exceeded our expectations on price, which has never happened to me. It’s a testament to Magic Millions for bringing the people here.” Peter O’Brien, Segenhoe Stud
“It’s a sexy sort of event. People love it, they really do! It’s proven itself, you only have to walk past the barns and see how each barn is named after a champion, not just a good horse, a champion.” Gai Waterhouse, purchaser of 46 lots for $9,615,000
“We were delighted, obviously it’s more than we thought! You’ve got all the buyers here – we’re thrilled to bits with our sale – all my owners are delighted. A very strong sale.” Arthur Mitchell, Yarraman Park who were leading vendor with the top lot and 100% clearance
“To give you an idea of the popularity (of our draft), one of our colts has been paraded 217 times in the past few days.” Bruce Slade, Newgate Farm
“This is a world-class sale that produces elite horses year after year, so if one is serious about being involved in Australian racing, one has to take this sale seriously.” Jim Carey, Coolmore Stud
“It’s a very strong sale and it’s hard to buy but it’s a very exciting sale. We’re delighted to be back involved.” Jason Walsh, Godolphin who resumed purchasing at Australian yearling sales in 2018
“I’ve heard for a long time what a great sale it is – the razamataz! I don’t think you can own horses and not come to this sale. John Warren was here last year and bought two lovely fillies so this year it was in the diary and it’s absolutely fantastic!” Harry Herbert, Highclere Stud
“It’s the highest price I’ve ever paid for a colt.” James Harron who extended the budget to $1.9m to secure the I Am Invincible-Electric Dreams colt
