MM 2YOs In Training Sale Review
The Star Witness colt was the stand out lot of the two day Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale which returned a gross of over $10 million - an increase of about $1.9 million on last year's record breaking edition. The clearance rate continued to improve and rounded out at 73 per cent for 212 lots sold at an average price of $48,910. The second top priced lot of the day was Washpool Lodge's So You Think colt from Morning Light who was knocked down to Les Kelly for $220,000. "There were buyers at every level at this sale. This led to our leading consignors being well rewarded," Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said. "The Gold Coast's own training partnership of Bryan and Daniel Guy purchased the top lot for $450,000 again highlighting that the optimum dollar is delivered at Magic Millions." Cox added: "The leading international jurisdiction by spend was Singapore with 34 lots at a spend of $2.17 million while buyers from Macau (19 lots), South Korea (16), Hong Kong (12) and China (10) were also very active."
