Queensland stallions always perform well on the National Sires Table for Leading Sires, Leading First Season Sires and Leading 2yo Sires and so far this year that trend is continuing.
However, the statistics for Queensland stallions in the Leading 2yo Sire category is outstanding. Eleven of the top fifty 2yo Sires are based in Queensland; they include Real Saga, (pictured) Publishing, Falvelon, All Bar One, Hidden Dragon, Red Dazzler, Monashee Mountain, Jet Spur, Wicked Style, Red Element and Longhorn.
These figures would surely have to entice buyers to consider the benefits of Queensland-bred yearlings as we lead into the Magic Millions QTIS Sale on March 17 & 18.
The statistics don’t lie and we all know the fantastic results of March QTIS Sale horses around Australia and overseas.
The 2013 March Magic Millions Sale produced more individual 2YO winners pre-Christmas than any other sale in Australia! Making it the best value sale in the country.
Not only are the results fantastic, but so is the prizemoney.
This week alone there were twelve QTIS races across Queensland, offering an extra $174,000 in prizemoney thanks to the QTIS bonuses.
Aimee (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) was one of the big winners. She collected $56,500 for winning the QTIS 2yo Hcp at Doomben on Saturday. If she wasn’t a QTIS horse, she would have only earned $24,000. That’s a big difference.
And the other placegetters are also rewarded by QTIS. Second prizemoney jumps from $10,000 to $17,000 and third from $5,000 to $8,500 all thanks to QTIS.
It’s not only Brisbane that’s catered to. QTIS took earnings from $10,000 to $22,000 at Townsville, the Sunshine Coast, Rockhampton, Beaudesert, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast with pirzemoney for all placegetters more than doubling at those venues.
And on the country circuit, at Gladstone and Miles this week, the winings went from $6,000 to $11,000 all thanks to QTIS.
It pays to own a QTIS horse and there’s plenty of top quality future stars on offer at the Magic Millions QTIS Sale on March 17 & 18.
The Raheen Stud bred, Sino Eagle (pictured) notched a win at her fourth city track when she proved too good in Saturday’s Indian Summer Handicap (1400m) at Flemington.
The Peter Moody-trained mare added Flemington to her wins at Caulfield, Moonee Valley and Sandown Lakeside when she finished powerfully to score her fifth victory in 10 outings.
Jockey Luke Nolen let Sino Eagle settle midfield early in the $80,000 contest before the daughter of Casino Prince out of Vermont Eagle (Octagonal (NZ) improved quickly to run up behind the leaders early in the straight.
Sino Eagle was bred by Raheen Stud and was passed in at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale for $21,000.
Raheen will offer Sino Eagle’s half sister by Red Element at the March QTIS Sale.

Wattle Brae Stud resident stallion Exceedingly Good (pictured) posted his second winning double in a matter of weeks when second-crop 2-year-old Aimee and first-crop 3-year-old Miss Excel both opened-up their winning account on Saturday’s programs.
Exceedingly Good was also responsible for a winning double in the last week of January when Goodos and High Degree posted Maiden Plate wins at Coff’s Harbour and Southport respectively.
Aimee, Miss Excel, Goodos and High Degree are amongst 16 daughters of Exceedingly Good to have faced the starter, seven (44% w-t-r) of which are now winners. These also include the stallion’s notable stakes-placed 2-year-old of 2012/13, Hallside Rose.
Changeintheweather (USA) pictured commenced his appearance on the First Season Sire list, with his first 2 year old winner yesterday.
Cyclone Kan led all the way to a resounding victory in the MAGIC MILLIONS QTIS SALE 17-18 QTIS TWO-YEARS-OLD MAIDEN HANDICAP (1000m) at Townsville, finishing the last 600m in 0:34.69 on the Dead 5 rated track.
Cyclone Kan is only the third runner for the immaculately bred 2 Year Old Group 1 Winner, Changeintheweather, who was imported from the USA to Australia in 2010, covering a book of 82 mares in his first Australian stud season at Merlo Downs Stud, Rockhampton.

Another winning treble for Queensland bred runners at Doomben on Saturday.
The day started with an impressive win by Aimee, out of Wattle Brae Stud’s consistent stallion, Exceedingly Good.
The filly took out the $85,000 QTIS Jim Beam 2yo Handicap.
It was her first win from just three starts. She settled well off the speed but powered home in the last 100m to get up and win running away, collecting a handy $56,500 as she past the post thanks to the QTIS bonus.
The well tried Star Sammy, by Sammy Sequalo, took out the Class 6 1200m Directional Drilling Handicap.
After being trapped wide the 4yo gelding took the lead at the 600m and defied all challengers to run him down.
And rounding out the day, in the Open Garrards Handicap over 1350m, Show A Heart’s 5yo, Mishani Warrior(pictured, Dan Costello Racing) pulled off an Australia-wide plunge. Coming from mid-field, he burst through the pack tomake it nine wins from 22 starts with over $220,000 in prizemoney.
