2018 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling

In 2018, RAFFLES will offer two well-bred yearlings at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale under the care of BHIMA – a filly (Lot 487) by leading second crop sire ALL TOO HARD, the Champion three-year-old of his generation on the racetrack and a colt by Champion Sire SNITZEL (Lot 807).

RAFFLES strives to put our most precocious at Magic Millions, such as SACRED SWORD (pictured), a colt by EXCEED AND EXCEL in our 2017 draft who finished a narrow second on debut in the Listed Debutant Stakes for trainer Tony McEvoy and owners that include Aquis Farm and Rosemont Stud. RAFFLES also has great confidence in the product we produce, as such we had retained a share in the colt, with the exciting prospect now being aimed at the 2018 Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes.
