MM Sale Rescheduled Because of Flooding

The Central Queensland yearling sale in Australia will be held May 6.

The 2011 Magic Millions Central Queensland yearling sale will be held in Rockhampton in Australia May 6. The auction originally was scheduled for April, but had to be moved so Rockhampton could recover from recent flooding.

Approximately 110 yearlings will be catalogued for the sale, which will be held at the Rockhampton Showgrounds.

Late last year, Magic Millions, in conjunction with the Central Queensland Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CQTBA), announced an agreement to conduct the auction.

"We're very much looking forward to the Central Queensland yearling sale on the new date of May 6," said Magic Millions' acting managing director, David Chester. "We look forward to working closely with the CQTBA, the Rockhampton Jockey Club, and Racing Queensland to take this sale to a new level.

"The first ever sale was held in Rockhampton in the 1970s by Australian Estates Company Limited and has endured the text of time. Magic Millions are very proud to be play a part in its future."

Catalogs for the sale will be available from March 11.
