Entries Open for Enhanced Horses in Training Sale

Entries are now open for the country’s leading breeze up style auction, the Gold Coast Horses in Training Sale, with a new section announced for vendors in 2024.
The highest clearing sale of its type in the country, the Gold Coast Horses in Training Sale will be held on October 22.

The sale, which last year attracted buyers from across Australia as well as China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Korea and Thailand, has boasted an 80 (plus) per cent clearance rate over the past two years.

In 2023 the Horses in Training Sale boasted 54 individual buyers for the 88 lots sold with the top 20 sellers averaging $148,000.

This year Magic Millions has reacted to client feedback and has introduced a new section for educated unraced prospects with an option of breezing and also opened up a possibility of a virtual sale process application for interstate based horses.

“This sale is a proven source for racetrack success,” Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said. “We have been lucky to have been supported from some of the region’s leading horsemen and women.” 

“Our vendors specifically source youngsters to re-sell at the Gold Coast. This is something they have mastered over the years and is why they are regarded as leaders of their field.” 

“Last year we introduced industry leading TripleS data with electronic chips providing interested parties with raceday quality data on stride length, frequency and speed. This innovation will be back again!”

The opportunities for vendors and buyers will expand in 2024 with a new section added to October’s auction.

“This year we will welcome young educated horses, including three-year-olds, who have been educated and seen in public at trials or official jump outs – they can also optionally breeze up at one of our four sessions across Australia.” 

“This new section of the sale will enable owners and vendors to present exciting young stock to a strong line up of domestic and international buyers.” 

“Entries for the sale are now open and anyone with questions should contact a member of the Magic Millions Bloodstock Team,” Bowditch added.
