It’s been another big day at the 2021 Magic Millions Yearling Sales, with three horses selling for more than $1 million.
A flashy colt by super sire Not a Single Doubt topped Day Three of the sales, selling for a whopping $1.8 million on Thursday afternoon.
The bay colt attracted an opening bid of $600,000 before his price soared past $1 million before settling on $1.8 million to the bid of Tony Fung Investments and Phoenix Thoroughbreds.

The team from Emirates Park said they were over the moon with the result, which exceeded expectations.
“He’s a lovely colt,” Emirates Park’s General Manager Bryan Carlson said.
“Even back at the farm (in early inspections) he was very popular… I thought he could make over a million, but I didn’t expect him to make that much.”
“He’s been very popular – out of his box nearly the whole time since he’s been here – it’s a fantastic result.
“He’s always been a relaxed, well moving colt,” Carlson added. “He does tick every box.”
Following another massive sales day, the auction gross has soared to over $134 million, with the average price of $257,471.
“It was a phenomenal’s day trade again,” Magic Millions Managing Director Barry Bowditch said.
“The numbers across the board are just fantastic.. We had another three million dollar horses today but buyers are getting into the market across all levels.
“There’s still plenty of great yearlings to come through the Book One catalogue over the next couple of days and importantly inspections start tomorrow for Book Two.”
Day Four of the Yearling Sale begins at 10am this morning.
