The “Blue Sky Premium Consignment” of quality fillies and mares recorded 100% clearance at the recent Magic Millions National Sale on the Gold Coast. In it’s second year operating a boutique consignment at the sale , Blue Sky Bloodstock offered 15 Fillies and Mares for trainers including Chris Waller and John McArdle, returning fantastic results for owners.
As a bloodstock agency that deals with quality fillies and mares on a daily basis, it makes sense for us to offer trainers and owners a service to prepare and consign quality racing and breeding stock to the market annually at the Magic Millions National Sale. We can market these offerings ahead of time to our client base and the buying bench and pool together a group of premium lots. We kicked off the consignment last year with 5 in the draft, so its great to expand this year and get all 15 sold for our supporters. - Julian Blaxland. With our property Newington Farm, its great to be able to prepare those mares not racing - in the lead up to the sale nearby at the farm.
The “BSPC” draft was highlighted by the sales results of multiple stakes winner SEXY EYES selling for $650,000 to Suman Hedge Bloodstock, ILL HAVE A BIT selling for $450,000 to Tom Magnier and SMART AS YOU THINK selling for $230,000 to Yu Long Investments. Blue Sky will continue to grow the consignment next year, offering trainers and owners a boutique model to market and offer both racing and recently retired breeding stock to the market each year.
