Magic Millions To Sponsor Singapore Juvenile Championship
Singapore's richest race for 2YOs, the S$200,000 Magic Millions Juvenile Championship (run later this month), will be sponsored by Magic Millions, revealed David Chester, managing director of Magic Millions. Chester said it was fitting Magic Millions would sponsor one of the time-honoured feature races in Singapore considering one of their graduates is the current champion of the famous racing region: Rocket Man, a $60,000 bargain buy from the Gold Coast, is regarded as the best horse to have ever raced in Singapore. "Magic Millions relationship with the Singapore Turf Club goes back to the late 1980s, when the company conducted the first ever auction of imported horses in Singapore. Now the Singapore Turf Club is one of the region's most progressive and successful race clubs. It is a privilege for Magic Millions to continue our close working relationship with the Turf Club." In choosing to recognise Singapore's owners and trainers who support Magic Millions, Chester also announced a special bonus to connections of the winner if that horse is linked to Magic Millions, saying, "If the winning horse of the race is a graduate of any Magic Millions sale conducted annually, the company will pay a bonus of S$50,000 to the winning owner."
