9/11/2020 MAGIC MILLIONS GOLD COAST YEARLING SALE EXTENDED TO MEET UNPRECEDENTED DEMAND
Magic Millions Sales Pty Ltd have announced amendments to The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions January Carnival calendar of events for 2021.
The following events will proceed as scheduled;
- Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale (12-18 January 2021). For the first time in the history of the business, the sale will run across seven consecutive days.
- Magic Millions Barrier Draw and the spectacular beach run (12 January 2021)
- The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Raceday (16 January 2021)
The company will ensure the above events, inspections and auction related activity adhere to all COVID-19 restrictions and operate in a COVID-safe environment.
Magic Millions' priority is the health and safety of staff, clients and the broader, local community. As a result, the Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo has been postponed until January 2022.
"The Magic Millions Yearling Sale and the fulfilment of The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Raceday will be our total focus in January 2021," Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.
"Our vendors and buyers can rely on us to deliver an outstanding yearling sale, at the standard they have come to expect from Magic Millions. Their confidence in our ability to deliver is demonstrated in the demand from breeders to send their yearlings to Magic Millions in January. For the first time ever, the sale will run for seven consecutive days."
"We have a proven track record of outperforming the market in a COVID-safe environment, as evidenced by our results at the recent Magic Millions National Sale."
"Whilst trackside at The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Raceday might be reduced in capacity, the line up on-course and $10.25 million prizemoney on offer will guarantee our owners a thrilling day of racing."
"The current risks and restrictions associated with COVID-19 have meant that it is the right decision to postpone the Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo until January 2022."
"We are optimistic that the COVID-19 risks will be significantly alleviated by January 2022. Stand by for The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Carnival to be back bigger and better than ever in 2022."
