Queensland sires are on fire, with some fantastic results overseas.

Bradbury’s Luck, Red Dazzler, Show A Heart and El Nino (pictured) have all had impressive international winners in the past 24 hours.
After a successful Melbourne Spring Carnival and the never-ending winners both nationally and overseas, the ever consistent Queensland bred yearlings will be much sought after at the approaching 2012 sales.
You can find out more about our fantastic Queensland Studs and Stallions on the TBQA website and follow the appropriate links.
The catalogue for Australia’s most popular thoroughbred auction, the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, is now online.

Featuring the cream of the region’s yearling crop, the first five sessions of the auction comprising Book 1 is made up of 892 quality lots. The sale will commence on January 11.

“The Gold Coast Yearling Sale is renowned for quality, variety and value,” Magic Millions Managing Director Vin Cox said. “The 2012 sale will be no different.”

“The 2012 sale will include many future Group One winners and statistics tell us the catalogue will most likely include the 2013 Golden Slipper winner – plus dozens more stakes winners around Australia and abroad.”

The catalogue can also now be downloaded to the equineline Sales Catalogue App for iPads – and users can assign ratings, make conformation notes, record veterinary information and write on and highlight catalogue pages in colour. Users can also create “short lists” and view mini catalogues with the important information suited to that individual.

This is the perfect tool for potential buyers at the Gold Coast Yearling Sale with the complex covered by complimentary wireless internet coverage to make the process easier for salegoers.

The TBQA Committee would like to extend their condolences to the friends and family of Corey Gilby.

The promising young jockey died on Sunday night after sustaining serious injuries in a fall during a gallop after the race meeting on Saturday at Julia Creek.
It is a sad loss to the racing industry and our thoughts are with Corey’s family.
We would also like to express our deepest sympathies to well known racing identity Larry Olsen, whose wife Maureen lost her battle with cancer recently.
We wish Larry all the best during this trying time.
