Entries Open for World Class MM Gold Coast National Sale

Media Release - Tuesday February 23

A superior buying bench with an insatiable demand for quality will present owners and vendors with a world class opportunity at the Magic Millions National Sale on the Gold Coast this May and June.

 
"We are delighted to again present vendors with the opportunity to nominate for one of the world's leading bloodstock auctions – the National Sale," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.

"Not only is the National Sale the peak sale of its type in the Southern Hemisphere year after year, it is the biggest and best because it delivers the perfect vehicle for all participants to sell and purchase bloodstock across every level."

"We are proud of how the National Sale has developed over the years and it’s the go-to auction for investors – it’s where the biggest and best buyers come to source the finest bloodstock Australasia has to offer."

"The Shadwell dispersal will be one of the most anticipated auctions on the sales calendar in many years. This will create a huge opportunity for all sellers to capitalise on the momentum that this will generate. The Gold Coast will be the place to be and we look forward to again putting on a world class event with all the Magic Millions hospitality our clients have become accustomed to," Bowditch added.
