Magic Millions 2021 On Track for Record Breaking Sale

Media Release - Thursday January 14

A flashy colt by super sire Not a Single Doubt topped Day Three of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale when selling for $1.8 million this afternoon.

$1.8million Not a Single Doubt colt from One More Honey.
 
Offered by breeder Emirates Park, the colt is the first foal of the Group Two Sweet Embrace Stakes winner One More Honey.

Consigned as Lot 612, the bay colt attracted an opening bid of $600,000 before his price soared past $1 million before settling on $1.8 million to the bid of Tony Fung Investments and Phoenix Thoroughbreds. 

"They are a limited edition, the Not a Single Doubt colts," Aquis Farm Managing Director Shane McGrath, on behalf of the buyers, said. 

"He's come off a great nursery - out of a very good racemare. Our partner in Dubai was up and watching and said he'd like to bid on the horse - that's why we ended up bidding online."

"He's a lovely colt," McGrath added. "He was much admired with the price he made. That was right at our limit."

The team from Emirates Park were over the moon with the result - the final price exceeding expectations.

"He's a lovely colt," Emirates Park's General Manager Bryan Carlson said. "Even back at the farm (in early inspections) he was very popular."

"I thought he could make over a million, but I didn't expect him to make that much."

"He's been very popular - out of his box nearly the whole time since he's been here - it's a fantastic result."

"He's always been a relaxed, well moving colt," Carlson added. "He does tick every box."

The Not a Single Doubt-One More Honey colt was one of three individual lots to sells for seven figures today.

Earlier in the day the full sister to champion filly Loving Gaby was purchased by her trainer Ciaron Maher, in partnership with Nxt Level Syndication, for $1.2 million.
$1.2million I Am Invincible filly from Maastricht.

Offered by Kia Ora Stud, the filly is a daughter of I Am Invincible and is from the group performed and top producing Mastercraftsman mare Maastricht. 

Tony Fung and Phoenix Thoroughbreds teamed up to secure the day's third biggest seller, the Not a Single Doubt colt from Medaglia Valore, a winning daughter of Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Military Rose.
 
$1million Not a Single Doubt colt from Medaglia Valore

The Medaglia Valore colt, who was sold by breeder Baramul Stud, was sold for an even $1 million.

Following another buoyant sales day the auction gross has soared over $134 million, while the average price of $257,471 and clearance rate of 88 per cent are tracking ahead of last year's record breaking event at the same time.

"It was a phenomenal's day trade again," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch reported.  "The numbers across the board are just fantastic."

"We had another three million dollar horses today but buyers are getting into the market across all levels."

"There's still plenty of great yearlings to come through the Book One catalogue over the next couple of days and importantly inspections start tomorrow for Book Two."
