The build up continued toward next month’s Magic Millions National Horses in Training Sale with a successful breeze up session held at Seymour today.
While the track wasn’t as lightning as the Gold Coast on Monday and Tuesday, the 70 two-year-olds impressed a good crowd of onlookers with solid workouts.
Fourteen lots broke the 11 second barrier with the quickest time of 10.3 seconds set by a Niello colt from the draft of Nolen Racing.
Colts by California Dane (10.62), King of Roses (10.64), Dane Shadow (10.76) and Danbird (10.79) rounded out the top five for the quickest breeze ups for the day.
“The horses breezed up in excellent style today and vendors did a magnificent job with their presentation and training,” Magic Millions Victorian Manager Tim Brown said.
“Our times today on paper don’t appear as quick as the Gold Coast – but the performances on a surface with more give were first class.”
Brown said the efforts of Penny Reeve and the team from the Seymour Racing Club were much appreciated.
“It was a really beautiful sunny day and Seymour were the perfect hosts for these important breeze ups.”
“The track was well presented and the facilities appreciated by all involved in the session.”
“The team from Magic Millions are extremely grateful to have the support of such a pro-active and hard working Victorian raceclub.”
The final breeze up session in preparation for the National Horses in Training Sale will be held from 10am tomorrow at the Rockhampton racecourse.
Some 27 prospects will be put through their paces including youngsters by the likes of Bel Esprit, Falvelon, Ferocity, Benicio, Hidden Dragon and Hussonet.
Later next week video clips from all four sessions will be available for viewing on the Magic Millions websites. DVDs will also be distributed to clients around the world.
The sale will be held at the Gold Coast on October 27 and 28.
