MM Gold Coast Day-4: New Records Set For Book One
Saturday night's fourth day of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale completed Book One of the auction with records across the board. Some 649 lots were sold between Wednesday and Saturday at a record average price of $206,922 and record gross of over $134 million. "We are very happy," Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said. "As I'd said before if we had have got somewhere near last year we would have been very happy as it was a great sale last year." Cox added: "But we have gone above that by quite a margin. We had more horses in Book One and our clearance rate was pretty much the same and our average has increased and our turnover has gone up massively." Watch a video review of day four below.
