Magic Pinhook Winners Book 2

Tara Madgwick - Wednesday January 15

Such was the strength of the Magic Millions Book 2 this year that several pinhookers operating in this slightly lower level of the market also posted big results with Queensland based KBL Thoroughbreds enjoying particular success.

Below are the best pinhooks from Book 2, click here for the full list.



KBL offered the third highest priced horse of the session with their Shalaa (IRE) colt from Backless fetching $275,000 to the bid of David Redvers Bloodstock/Sandhurst Bloodstock/Suman Hedge Bloodstock/McEvoy-Mitchell Racing.
