The Magic Millions Gold Coast yearling sale in Australia will be held a week later in 2011. After consultation with buyers and sellers and other industry officials, Magic Millions officials announced Feb. 11 that the auction will start Jan. 12 next year. It began Jan. 6 this year.

Book One of the sale, comprising sessions one to five, will run through Jan. 16. Magic Millions Raceday is scheduled for Jan. 15.

"The new dates for next year look a great fit," said Magic Millions managing director David Chester. "We are back one week to give our vendors and buyers an extra week between the Christmas/New Year festivities and our sale. Queensland Racing agreed to moving the raceday back one week and we thank them for their assistance and ongoing support.”

Sessions six through eight of the auction will be conducted Jan. 19-21.
