Magic Millions Delayed by a Week

Media Release - Tuesday July 14

The 2020 Magic Millions National Sale, which was due to commence on July 20, will be delayed by one week.

Following today’s announcements in relation to COVID-19 restrictions, a decision was made by Magic Millions, in conjunction with stakeholders, to now commence the auction on July 27.

"It’s imperative to our industry we give participants the best opportunity to attend, the National Sale plays a vital part on the sales calendar," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said. "The extra week provides prospective buyers with the opportunity to research and inspect the catalogue if they are in a position to do so." "Our complex has been confirmed as a COVID-19 safe venue by health officials and extra measures are in place to protect all industry participants while focusing strongly on horse welfare."

"These new dates are locked in and the sale will proceed regardless of any change in circumstances," Bowditch added.
