Magic Millions commits long-term to WA

Magic Millions managing director Vin Cox confirmed the company’s commitment to the Western Australian industry at the Perth Winter Sale on Sunday.

“With the proposed development of Belmont, we are exploring all avenues as to future selling venues, where no decisions have been made at this point,” Cox said.  “While ever Belmont is available to us we will use that facility, but we look forward to servicing and being long-term players in the Western Australian industry.”

A Trade Fair – Brilliant Bon Bon filly topped the Winter Yearling Sale when selling for $27,000.  Offered by Alwyn Park Stud, the attractive chestnut was purchased by Justine Hornby.

Hornby also bought a War Chant – Overnightsensation filly from Dawson Stud that was second on the leader-board at $21,000.

The Yearling Sale grossed $245,200 for 40 lots sold at an average price of $6,130.
