Thankyou to the QLD breeders for the news and hopefully people support the sales with some nice types going under the hammer!



Next week the high anticipated Magic Millions QTIS Sale is upon us. You won’t find a better sale, or value for money than this. The March Sale continually produces top class winners.
In fact, in the five months of two year old racing until the start of March this year there were 18 individual 2yo QTIS graduate winners that have won 23 races and over $1.1 million in prizemoney.
The cream of the crop of Queensland-bred yearlings are showcased and snapped up by savvy purchasers from not just the Sunshine State, but right around the country. 

The 2013 Magic Millions March QTIS Sale was the best juvenile performing sale in the country. It produced more individual winners pre-Christmas than any other sale. 

Between them, those QTIS graduates alone have amassed over one millions dollars in prizemoney, that’s one sixth of the sale gross which was just over $6 million dollars. They are pretty impressive statistics and prove just how good the QTIS sale is.

Some of those winners included Setfire to Therain, Grapevine, Celestial Dragon, Vienna Royale, Element of Chance, Waffle, Freezethemillions, Vo Treasure and Penthouse Poppy, along with Stakes performers Ruby Soho, Stroak and Ambitious Blonde.

Stroak and Ruby Soho (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) were both hot contenders in the prestigious $2 million 2yo Magic Millions Classic in which Ruby Soho ran third. She’s now won connections over $300,000 in twelve weeks of racing.
If you want tremendous value for money, a great chance of success and the opportunity to cash in on the fantastic QTIS bonus prizemoney make sure you head to the Gold Coast Sales complex at Bundall on March 17 and 18.

Come and join us for our annual ‘Welcome BBQ’ that will be held on Sunday 16th from 4pm in conjunction with Magic Millions. It’s a great time to inspect the yearlings, either before or after the BBQ and it provides a relaxed social occasion to network.

We will be presenting the inaugural QTIS Trainers Premierships as part of the function and you’ll have plenty of chances to win QTIS pay-ups during the sale with various promotions that both the TBQA and Racing Queensland are holding.

Good luck to all the vendors at the sale, I hope you get good prices for your yearlings but remember – always be prepared to meet the market. And best of luck to the buyers, I hope you find great success with your purchase when it hits the track.
The TBQA, thanks to the support of Racing Queensland, is giving you a chance to win a QTIS pay-up at the Magic Millions QTIS sale.

All you need to do is come and visit us at the TBQA marquee, just opposite the office on Monday 17th or Tuesday 18th and join the TBQA. All new members will go into the draw for a QTIS pay-up.

But we’re not forgetting about our existing members and the ongoing support you give us. You also have the chance to win a QTIS pay-up as a show of our appreciation.

Again, simply come over to the TBQA marquee, make sure your membership details are up-to-date and you can fill in an entry form. That’s the chance to save up to $990!
The Queensland Fillies Sales Bonus Incentive (QFSBI) has proved a huge success and has been very well received.
All those who won the credit were very excited about the scheme and have no doubt been studying the catalogue to find a suitable filly.
Congratulations to all the winners, we hope you come to the TBQA marquee to meet us and that you find a future star of the track thanks to this incentive scheme.
The $125,000 QFSBI is a partnership between the TBQA, Racing Queensland and Magic Millions and is designed to encourage buyers to purchase a filly at the Magic Millions March QTIS Sale.

It involved a series of 55 races held between December and March 8th, where the winning owners received a $5000 credit bonus to go towards purchasing a filly at the Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale.

We will be watching closely to see what sort of impact this bonus has on the sale results for fillies and may even consider running the scheme again in the future if it proves successful.
And this week the QTIS bonus prizemoney continued to flow with $172,000 up for grabs in 13 QTIS races.
Heza Bobby Dazzler (pictured Dan Costello Racing), by Eureka Stud sire Red Dazzler, raced away in the $85,000 QTIS 3yo Handicap at Doomben on Saturday to collect $56,500 in first place prizemoney. If he wasn’t a QTIS horse that first place winnings would have been just $32,000.
Real Saga’s boom 2yo, No Problem continued on his winning way banking yet another $56,500 after taking out his third metorpolitan $85,000 QTIS 2yo Handicap.
Miss Cover Girl, by Monashee Mountain, won $16,950 for the $25,000 QTIS 2yo Maiden Plate on the Gold Coast. That copares to just $8,450 for first place if she wasn’t QTIS eligible.
In Toowoomba, Za Rapper, by Clear Mountain Fairview sire, Zaha, collected $15,000 instead of $6,500 thanks to the QTIS bonus in the $22,000 3yo Maiden Plate with idenitical earnings for Ferocity filly, Helarocity in Rockhampton, Rapt in Rumba at Kilcoy and Daytona Red in Townsville.
And $6,000 races were boosted to $11,000 races thanks to QTIS at Moranbah, Dalby, Mt Isa and Cairns.
