Smart Missile Colts In Demand

A colt by former crack juvenile Smart Missile made the top price of $320,000 on Day One of the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale on Tuesday.

The colt, consigned by Kenmore Lodge, was purchased by Vichit Pongsri-am from Thailand for $320,000. He was passed in at this year’s Book 2 of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale without receiving a bid.

The youngster will be sent to Singapore to be trained by Cliff Brown.


A Written Tycoon colt was purchased by Sean Buckley’s Ultra Thoroughbreds and TK Racing for $300,000.

A total of 82 lots were sold for a gross of $5.38 million at an average of $65,665 – up 32 per cent on last year.

The clearance rate was over 68 per cent.

“It’s been a pretty good start for us,” said Magic Millions managing director Vin Cox.

“We’re looking at some numbers that are significantly higher than 2016 – in particular the average and median.

Horses were sold to buyers from Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, the Philippines, Korea, Thailand and the US.
