    GERRY HARVEY AUSHORSE MASTERCLASS EVENT

    For Gerry Harvey, the equation is simple: either (a) experience total joy
    or (b) be miserable for the rest of your life.

    Speaking at a “Masterclass with McEvoy, Stokes & Jolly” event conducted 
    by Aushorse at the Adelaide Magic Millions sales complex on Sunday morning, 
    Harvey said he had been racing horses since 1972 and was smitten from the get-go.

    “You can’t explain to people just how good you feel when your horse wins a race 
    and my advice is to give it a go, or the alternative is just being plain miserable!,” Harvey enthused.

    The billionaire retailer and owner of Magic Millions, Harvey had the 150
    attendees –many of whom have never previously walked onto a sales
    complex – in rapt attention.

    The seminar, which was emceed by popular auctioneer, Clint Donovan, also included 
    addresses from leading South Australian breeder and Aushorse director, Chris Watson, 
    Magic Millions Managing Director, Vin Cox, plus top local trainers, Richard Jolly and Phillip Stokes.

    Cox explained some of the finer points of horse conformation, getting up close and 
    personal in the sales ring with a couple of yearlings: one youngster born
    to sprint and another likely to get over a distance.

    “It was a great opportunity to show so many people – hopefully future racehorse owners –
    just what we look for in a racehorse and what better way than actually illustrating your point
    right there in front of them. It was a really pleasing turnout for a Sunday morning on a 
    long weekend and it augurs well for the future of racing in South Australia.

    “Well done to Aushorse for putting on the event … it’s a great opportunity for people to become
    involved and, who knows, a few of them might be back when the sale starts and better
    informed than before.”

    Trainer, Tony McEvoy, fresh from a Group One victory last week with Hey Doc,
    also explained some of the ins and outs of seeking out a winner.

    “I thought it was a tremendous turnout and have to commend everyone involved for organising 
    the event,” McEvoy enthused. “I have to say that the questions that the attendees 
    were firing in showed that they were genuinely interested in racehorse ownership 
    and fingers crossed there will be a few converts from the day.

    “I explained to them that I look at every horse at a sale and before I buy one, 
    I’ve inspected him or her at least seven times.

    “I’ve had a least five looks before I even open the catalogue and those last two 
    times are simply to ascertain whether I can afford to buy the horse and if it will 
    be possible to on-sell the horse to prospective clients.

    “The bottom line is that we have to do our best to make it as an enjoyable an 
    experience as possible for owners and, importantly, to make it totally transparent.”

    One ‘newcomer’ is about to immerse himself in the McEvoy experience as the 
    winner of a joint promotion between Aushorse and Adelaide’s The Advertiser, 
    where the leading trainer will purchase a yearling this week at the 
    Adelaide Magic Millions … of which lucky contestant – Matt Donohue – has now won a 10% share.

    Donohue was so excited that when Aushorse CEO, Tom Reilly phoned to say he had won,
    he wasn’t sure if he was being “wound up” and asked for confirmation via email!

    “It was terrific to see so many people turn up for the event,” said Aushorse director 
    Chris Watson, who also runs Mill Park and has a large contingent of yearlings for the
    sale which kicks off today at 6pm and runs through to Wednesday.

    “Quite often people think that racehorse ownership is inaccessible but informal seminars
    like this just show how easy it is to be involved. As I pointed out to the attendees, 
    a horse like Happy Trails cost just $11,000 at the Adelaide sale and went on to
    win $3.3 million on the racetrack. Hopefully it encourages a few people to take their own happy trails.”

    All Too Hard Colt Tops Book One in Adelaide
    After swooping on one of the two top sellers last night,
    the powerful Macdonald Gluyas stable was back in force at
    Morphettville today to buy the overall top seller of Book One
    at the 2017 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.

    Hall of Fame horseman Leon Macdonald bid to $190,000
    to secure the highly admired All Too Hard-Lady Paget colt
    from Gerry Harvey’s Baramul Stud.


    Like he did last night Macdonald outlasted Gary Moore to secure
    the colt after a frenzied bidding battle.

    The colt is the second foal of the twice winning Testa Rossa mare
    Lady Paget, a half sister to Adelaide Yearling Sale Group One
    winning graduate Casino Prince and four other stakes performers.

    “He’s a lovely colt,” a delighted Leon Macdonald said.
    “I bought the two colts I wanted – the Stratum and this bloke,
    I thought they were as good as any colts on the complex.”

    “I’ve never had one (by All Too Hard) but I know Johnny Hawkes
    has great faith in him and he doesn’t do a bad job with a horse,”
    Macdonald added.

    Leading Sydney trainer Gary Moore rebounded after missing out
    on the $190,000 All Too Hard colt and $170,000 Stratum colt to
    strike with the day’s second top seller.

    That colt, by former dual Cox Plate winner So You Think, was
    purchased by Moore for $155,000 from the draft of Bowness Stud.

    Consigned as lot 286 the good looking brown colt is the sixth foal
    of the winning Danehill mare Starspangled – a daughter of five time
    Group One winner User Friendly.

    “He’s coming off a great stud farm,” Moore said. “So You Think is
    doing the job at stud – I really love So You Think.”

    “His second dam is User Friendly who was racing at the same time
    as when I was riding in France.”

    “It’s a beautifully balanced pedigree – he might be my first
    Derby winner,” Moore added.
