Queensland gallopers had tremendous success on our richest raceday.
Quality galloper Noisy Ocean won the $200,000 Oracle Magic Millions Stayers Cup (1800m) at the Gold Coast.
Despite covering extra ground during the race, the son of Raheen Stud’s deceased sire, Shovhog, showed great fight to get to the line a neck clear of his rivals in a driving finish.
“I thought both of the horses would run great and the other one (Dienekes – also by a Raheen Stud sire in Shovhog) ran third with my young girl apprentice aboard, it’s sensational for her as well.” said trainer, Bryan Buy.
Noisy Ocean is turning out an incredible money spinner for his connections considering he cost Guy just $15,000 at the 2010 Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the Raheen Stud draft.
With seven strong wins and eight placings from 38 starts, Noisy Ocean has sent his prizemoney earnings soaring to $494,200.
Noisy Ocean is one of four winners from his dam, the unraced Sir Tristram mare Hepburn Rose.
Hepburn Rose is a daughter of the Sydney stakes winning Bletchingly mare and hails from the family of Tornado King, Tempestuous and Miss Pagaentry.
Noisy Ocean is one of 211 individual winners for Danehill’s sire son Shovhog, a former stakes winner for the Jack Denham stable.

Queenslanders struck in the opening race on Magic Millions raceday when Anymore stormed to victory in the $100,000 Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa Magic Millions Plate (1200m) at the Gold Coast.
Under the urgings of star Sydney rider Peter Robl, Anymore raced clear over the concluding stages to beat the David Hayes trained The Yowie by length and three quarters. Snippets Land, by Raheen Stud sire, Stromberg Carlson, was another neck back in third place.

Full story…

It was a magic day on the Gold Coast for Darling Downs based stud Raheen.
They had one winner and four placegetters from eight starters on the Magic Millions program.
Raheen-bred runners won and placed third in the Stayers Cup (1800m) which was won by Noisy Ocean  pictured (by now-deceased Raheen stallion, Shovhog) while Dienekes, by Raheen sire Stromberg Carlson, dashed home for third.
Other gallopers that featured on the day and were bred and raised at Raheen included, Publishing filly Ruby Soho who ran third in the $2 million dollar Magic Millions 2yo Classic, Snippets Land with a third in the Marriott Resort 1200m and the Peter Moody trained Club Command who also placed third in the Magic Millions Cup (1400m).
With the interest shown in their yearlings at the Magic Millions Sale so far and the strong prices they are fetching, there’s every chance those good results on the track will be at least replicated at next year’s Carnival.
The progeny of Queensland stallions were in demand at the Magic Millions Sales where plenty of Queensland bred yearling’s fetched top dollar.
Glenlogan Park led the charge with $450,000 for a cracking chestnut colt by Star Witness out of Pachanga that went to James Harron Bloodstock.
While their sire, Jet Spur claimed top dollar for the Queensland-based stallions when his colt out of Mandawara was knocked down to Magic Millions as Agent for $210,000.
Other Queensland studs to top the $100,000 mark for their yearlings included Highgrove Stud, Daandine Stud, Element Hill, Raheen Stud, Gainsborough Lodge, Eureka Thoroughbreds, Rosari Farms, Robyn Wise, Lyndhurst Stud and Carrington Thoroughbreds.
The top prices for Queensland based stallions were:
Jet Spur – $210,000
Show a Heart – $155,000
Rothesay – $140,000
Real Saga – $140,000
Saint Thomas – $82,500
Captain Sonador – $75,000
Red Element – $50,000
Drumbeats – $45,000
Falvelon – $42,000

An outstanding colt by More Than Ready took the honours during a successful Day Four of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale on Saturday night.
A strong session saw the average price for the sale grow to over $144,000 and the sale gross round out at over $75 million. All figures were up on last year’s sale.
A beautifully bred filly by champion sire Redoute’s Choice topped Book 2 on day five of the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale on Sunday.
Presented by Arrowfield Stud, the filly from stakes winner Flame of Atlanta was knocked down to Prime Thoroughbred’s Joe O’Neill for $280,000.
“I purchased her for Power Thoroughbreds,” O’Neill said. “She was a stand out filly today who has a lot going for her.”
All up on Sunday over $9.5 million was traded on 199 lots sold at an average price of $47,924. The clearance rate today was a healthy and always growing 83.3 per cent.
QTIS Cashed Up
The spotlight may have been on the Gold Coast and the Magic Millions Carnival this week, but there were still plenty of QTIS races.
There were eight QTIS races across the State offering a total of $87,000 in bonus prizemoney to eligible owners.
There were $22,000 QTIS races at Townsville, Rockhampton, Ipswich, Toowoomba, Doomben and the Sunshine Coast. That bumped prizemoney fron $6,500 to $15,000 for the winner, from $2,000 to $4,300 for the second placegetter and from $1,000 to $2,200 for third.
The winning QTIS horses this week included Queen of the Lochs (pictured, Dan Costello Racing), Craiglea Ivy, Top Tone, Final Chapter, Cavu, Excellent Star, Duan Theo and True Royal.
All the attention may be on the Magic Millions this week, but the Queensland Fillies Sales Incentive Bonus program had connections of Cavu smiling.
Cavu, by Jet Spur (pictured), won the QFSIB race, the 3yo Maiden Plate at Ipswich on Friday for trainer Tony Sears.
Tony is thrilled with his $5,000 credit towards the purchase of a filly at the March QTIS Sale.
“That’s a great incentive,” Sears said.
“I’ve ben holding off for the QTIS sale and I’ll be definitely looking for a good filly now.”
There’s still plenty of chances for owners to win the Fillies bonus, with the next two races scheduled for this Saturday at Doomben.
Lyndhurst Stud sire Hidden Dragon (pictured) has once again proved successful overseas.
He recorded a winning double this week when his 3yo gelding Faithfully took out the S$35,000 1100m event at Kranji in Singapore.
Just a short time later at Macau El Gran Senor, 5yo gelding Lobor Treasure won the 1200m event.
The win’s continue an amazing run of success for Hidden Dragon overseas, with an internatinal winner on a weekly basis since the start of this racing season.
