Magic Millions

4BC Summer Drive: What do you look for when buying a horse at the Magic Millions?

With hundreds of horses on sale and millions of dollars at stake, how do you assess every horse and spend someone else's money wisely?

Henry Plumtree is Managing Director of global breeding operation Darley Australia and is responsible for selecting horses for wealthy, influential people.

Plumtree joins Mark Braybrook to explain the process and the pressure.

  • Thanks roger

    Hard to knock the Magic Millions concept I think, Gerry and Singo have done a pretty good job promoting it and people in other countries are copying it.
    If they fudge a few figures, well ...
    It's their product.
    Hate to be the dude trying to pick a champion and advising clients to spend hundreds of thousands when Missy Longstocking costs 7 grand.

  • Not a job for me. Too many very highly priced horses can't run a message despite great looks and breeding and only 2% of owners even get their money back. I see a lot of Darley horses racing around in mid week low rank meetings just trying to win a few thousand prizemoney to help pay their way in life.
    Lots of ups and downs in the racing industry.
