A superior domestic and international buying bench with an insatiable demand for quality will present owners and vendors with a world class opportunity on the Gold Coast this May and June.

"We are delighted to again present vendors with the opportunity to nominate for one of the world's leading bloodstock auctions - the National Sale," Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.

"Not only is the National Sale the peak sale of its type in the Southern Hemisphere year after year, it is the biggest and best because it delivers the perfect vehicle for all participants to sell and purchase bloodstock across every level."

"We are proud of how the National Sale has developed over the years and it's the go-to auction for investors from around the world - it's where the biggest and best buyers come to source the finest bloodstock Australasia has to offer."

"What a time to be here on the Gold Coast - vendors and buyers alike experience a world class breeding stock sale whilst having the opportunity to enjoy the Gold Coast and its magnificent winter climate," Bowditch added.
