Magic Millions Perth Sale Boosted By Westspeed Extra
The 4-day Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale which begins tonight at Belmont Park received a timely boost when Racing & Wagering Western Australia yesterday announced the introduction of 'Westspeed Extra'. For yearlings foaled in the 2009 breeding season, owners will be given the option of paying an additional nomination fee of $1,100 to increase the Westspeed owners bonus payable on all prime metropolitan wins from $15,000 to $22,500. This represents a 50% increase in the prime bonus currently payable under the scheme. RWWA chief executive Richard Burt said Westspeed Extra would be available to owners purchasing yearlings through the Magic Millions Perth Sale commencing today, noting: "Westspeed Extra will provide the owner of a Westspeed eligible horse the opportunity to race for prize-money, including Westspeed bonus, of $51,750 in each open 2YO & 3YO event throughout that horse's career."
