: The scene is set for this week's Magic Millions National Horses in Training Sale following Monday's third and final breeze up session at the Gold Coast.
Some 60 exciting two-year-old prospects were put through their paces on Monday and despite being confronted with a significantly rain affected track they performed with distinction.
A colt by Purrealist from the draft of Oakwood Farm ran the quickest 200 metre breeze of the third session - 10:27 seconds - one of 35 youngsters today to "break" the 11 second barrier.
That brings the figure to 118 of those to breeze to run in the 10 second bracket - over half of those to be clocked.
Inspections are well and truly underway at the Magic Millions complex at Bundall with buyers from around the country and overseas inspecting the ready made racetrack prospects.
Buyers from Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, New Zealand and the Philippines were all spotted inspecting stock on Monday afternoon.
Graduates of this sale in recent years have included Aussie stars Shocking, Graceful Anna, Gundy Son, Fontelina, Warrior Within
, Masquerader and Famous Roman and international stars Gingerbread Man, Viva Pronto. Magic Cat, Kaiser and Tzar.
The sale will be held from 11am (Qld time) on Wednesday and Thursday. Following Thursday's second session a Racehorse Sale will be conducted with a quality 45 lot plus catalogue.
