The build up to next month’s Magic Millions National Horses in Training Sale continued in Victoria today with an important line up of breeze-ups conducted at Seymour.
A colt by Niello from the Kenmore Lodge draft led the list of the quickest of 55 lots to be put through their paces.
The exciting two-year-old, catalogued as lot 79, sizzled over the 200 metre sectional – stopping the slick in 10:34 seconds.
The colt was one of 16 to run below 11 seconds – a record for the Seymour session – an impressive figure considering more lots were breezed up at the track last year.
The draft of Nolen Racing were eye catchers and filled the remaining nine spots on the top ten leaderboard of the quickest times for the day – two of them being sold as agent for Laceby Lodge Stud.
Another draft set to impress on the Gold Coast is that from Eliza Park – their representatives today looking top prospects including a colt and filly by Written Tycoon who respectively ran 11:11 and 11:2 seconds.
“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 day went off without a hitch.”
“The team from Magic Millions are extremely grateful to have the support of such a pro-active and hard working Victorian raceclub.”
Clips of today’s Seymour breeze ups as well as those conducted at the Gold Coast on Monday will be available for online viewing via the Magic Millions website from Monday.
A second breeze up session will be held at the Gold Coast on the eve of the auction on October 17.
