Magic MillionsrNational Sale - Gross Surpasses $140 million

Records have fallen as the curtain came down on a successful 2018 Magic Millions Gold Coast National Sale.

The final day of selling on June 7 comprisinjg Book 2 Yearlings and Racehorses grossed over $2.3 million helping push the overall sale average price and clearance rate to record levels.

The total sale grossed over $140 million - just the second time in history such a figure has been reached.

The average price for more than 2000 lots sold over the past three weeks is a record $89,039 and the clearance rate across all sales was an impressive 83 per cent - another improvement on last year's record unprecedented results.

"To have a gross again over $140 million is a phenomenal result," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.

"The National Breeding Stock Sale has once again proven itself as the number one sale of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.”

The final day top seller was the exciting three-year-old Nathula who sold for $165,000 during the National Racehorse Sale.

The son of Sepoy, catalogued as Lot 2349, was offered by Godolphin and helped that draft provide the top 16 priced sellers in the Racehorse Sale.

Nathula was purchased by Bridle Bloodstock and will do his future racing for his new connections in Hong Kong.

Singapore's Constance Cheng bid strongly to secure Thrilled for $120,000. The Exceed and Excel gelding was a winner at Warwick Farm just over a week ago.

Noumea ($110,000) and last start Geelong winner Kapuziner ($90,000) were both purchased by Victoria's Fernwood Park and look set for jumping futures.

Earlier in the day a colt by Red Element sold for $90,000 and topped Book 2 of the National Yearling Sale.

Offered by Grandview, the bay colt was purchased by Macau based trainer James Moore and client Jason Tam.

A colt by New Zealand based sire Tavistock led the way to top Day 2 of the Magic Millions Gold Coast National Yearling Sale on June 6.

Offered by Amarina Farm, the colt was knocked down to the bid of Jason Abrahams of Champion Thoroughbreds for $250,000.

The colt is the second foal of the lightly raced Echo of Light mare Lithograph - a half sister to international stakes winner Law Speaker and daughter of Sydney stakes winner Forum Floozie.

The second top priced lot and the overall top selling filly of Book 1 was the Fastnet Rock-Valadon filly offered by Highgrove Stud.

A half sister to stakes performers Global Dream, Maraatib and Valoura, the filly was purchased by John Crowley of Chevaux Bloodstock for $245,000.

Chevaux Bloodstock was the leading buyer on spend for Book One of the National Yearling Sale with an outlay of $659,500 on five purchases.

Over the two day Book One sale of the National Yearling Sale almost $10 million was traded on 230 lots sold at an average price of $43,172. The clearance rate climbed during the day and should further overnight - it currently sits at 71 per cent.
