A Horse for all Seasons

The Magic Millions Yearling Sale is increasingly being seen as a high class sale for all horses rather than a sale for just prospective speedy juveniles and leading South Australian nursery Mill Park is on trend in presenting their usual diverse and top quality draft at the Gold Coast.

Owned and run by the Watson family, Mill Park is a name synonymous with success at the highest level.

Their Limestone Coast based nursery has produced everything from Caulfield Cup winners such as Fawkner and Southern Speed, to Derby heroes like Rebel Raider and Gold Guru, right through to brilliant sprinters and juveniles such as Go Indy Go, Catapulted and Augusta Proud.

Versatility is always a hallmark of the Mill Park draft and whether you want a horse to win the juvenile race next year or a horse to win everything else, chances are you won't go far wrong when starting your search right here.
