Spectacular Quality for Biggest Ever January Magic Millions

The undisputed number one Group One producing thoroughbred auction in Australasia will soon present its next crop of future champions with today’s release of the online catalogue for the 2024 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
Due to unprecedented demand from breeders and vendors the upcoming selling extravaganza will be the biggest January Gold Coast Yearling Sale in history.

The seven days of selling will be held across eight days commencing at 11am on Tuesday, 9 January, following the popular barrier draw event at Surfers Paradise beach.

Book One, comprising a record 1,020 lots, will continue daily from Tuesday through Friday before the traditional Saturday night session following the running of the record $14.25 million The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Raceday.

The Book Two component of the sale, comprising a further 448 lots will be conducted over two days on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 January with Sunday now an official inspection day.

The star studded catalogue of 1,468 yearlings across Books One and Two, includes progeny of 129 individual sires, with huge interest to surround youngsters by 26 first season sires.

Among lots catalogued are (at least half) relations to spring carnival stars Imperatriz, Think About It, Attrition and Griff as well as Coolangatta, Golden Sixty, In Secret, Sunlight and Warm Heart. 

Yearlings from 33 Group One winning mares are highlights – among them the first or second foals of Arcadia Queen, Avantage, English, Hasahalo, I Am Excited, In Her Time, Kenedna, Loving Gaby and Missisippi Burning. 

“The success of graduates of the Gold Coast Yearling Sale is second to none,” Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said. “If you want to buy a Group One winner you must be at the Gold Coast in January.” 

“With recent graduates including genuine stars Alligator Blood, Espiona, Golden Sixty, Imperatriz, In Secret, Militarize and Ozzmosis, you can see why the sale is held in the highest of regards.” 

“Our team has worked hard in compiling a large and quality filled catalogue of horses we believe can be future stars on the track and beyond.”

“Buying a yearling at the 2024 Gold Coast Yearling Sale will provide buyers the opportunity to race for in excess of $20.7 million over 28 races nationally every year, including a new six-race $5.25 million night meeting to be conducted annually on the eve of The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Raceday from 2025.”
