Day 4 Magic Millions and as the saying goes: “Every champion has a story.”

Leading businessman and Magic Millions owner GERRY HARVEY and Dynamic Syndications
have a long-standing business relationship that goes to back when we purchased Golden Slipper Winner POLAR SUCCESS followed by Cox Plate Winner SAVABEEL from the expert breeder, both through his Magic Millions Sales.

We always inspect Gerry’s draft of yearlings because we know that the horses are the most natural.

They haven’t been pushed in their growth and they have been raised on his specialised pastures at Gerry’s various picturesque stud farms he owns.

On Day 4 at the Magic Millions, one of his lots to enter the ring was LOT 700 - a Brown Filly by champion sire LONHRO from the regally bred English mare REMIND ME (GB) (by Dansili).

Gerry had mated this mare to LONHRO (Service Fee $60,000) and then sent the mare in foal to New Zealand to his property Westbury Farm.

Foaled and raised on the famed limestone country at Westbury, two weeks ago Gerry flew the filly back to Australia to be sold through his own Magic Millions Sales Company.

Gerry Harvey puts a lot of effort into his breeding analysis, and this filly is an example of that endeavour.

A well presented individual, she has excellent conformation, good size and scope for further development.

As to be expected she is still immature, but this filly has been purposely bred to aim at 2000m+ races as a 3yo, 4yo and 5yo.

In fact, Gerry bred her to aim at the $1m Magic Millions 2400m races which are held each year on Magic Millions Day.

This individual is a typical LONHRO in both conformation and appearance.

Importantly, our contracted veterinarian Dr Tim Roberts rated her highly and she also had crystal clear X-Rays and a Grade 1 endoscopic evaluation.

REMIND ME (GB) was bred in England and raced in France.

Genetics regularly floats to the top in super racehorses and it’s easy to understand why such a prominent breeder as GERRY HARVEY initially purchased REMIND ME (GB).

Bred in the purple, she is a Half-Sister to JOURNEY (by Dubawi) a Gr1 Winning and 5-time Stakes Winning racemare who was crowned Champion Older Female Stayer in Great Britain in 2016.

She is also a Half-Sister to INDIGO GIRL (by Dubawi) herself a Gr2 Winner and runner-up in a Gr1.

Also, she is a Half-Sister to Gr2 placed TRAVELLING MAN.

In addition to being a Half-Sister to a Champion, REMIND ME (GB) is the daughter Gr1 Winning mare MONTARE (by Monteju). She won 6 Stakes Races and was also Gr1 placed.

Whilst her grandam is dual French Stakes Winner CONTARE.

By mating LONHRO to a daughter of DANSILI (by Danehill), this is genetically the most successful cross for LONHRO.

Genetically this is an A+++ Worldwide Cross and A+++ Geographical Cross whilst the bloodlines pulsing through her veins is of the highest quality, giving her a rating score of Q7.

Because this filly is bred to be a Classics Contender from a stout female family, she was a little lost in a sale where buyers are predominantly looking to buy precocious 2yo running types.

This filly is the opposite to what the market is searching for. She would have been better sought at the Easter Sales however Gerry owns the Magic Millions.

This filly is exactly the type of individual Dynamic Syndications are searching for, to ensure our astute owners have access to the best on breeding available.

Having purchased a fabulous filly by LONHRO on Day 1 for $170,000 + GST, we were content to just take that one Lonhro filly home. Had we not purchased that filly then this LOT 700 was our next to buy in the pecking order.

We were gobsmacked and Gerry was flabbergasted when Lot 700 entered the salering and failed to meet Gerry’s realistic reserve.

We anticipated she was good buying at $120,000 to $150,000 based upon a Service Fee of $60,000.

Adam Watt dashed around the back of the vendor’s box to ask “Uncle Gerry” which is the relationship Adam and Gerry have developed over many years at the Magic Millions, what was the story.

Gerry said he had wanted $100,000 to start with but dropped his reserve to $75,000 in the salering to ensure she was on the market.

He couldn’t understand that it didn’t sell but advised Adam that he was happy to race it himself.

Adam Watt confirmed with Gerry that we would give him the $75,000 (+ GST) and Gerry retorted, “only if I can keep 30% and can race her with you!”

Deal Done!

Uncle Gerry and Adam shook hands and this fabulous filly with the terrific pedigree both commercially and genetically, became Dynamic.

We will syndicate 70% to race in co-ownership with Gerry Harvey.

There you have it. Some of the wheeling and dealing that’s done at a horse sale.

We have achieved ownership of a fantastic filly at an incredible price which we can now pass onto our astute and loyal Dynamic Owners to own and race.

She has such a strong family behind her, which should ensure good residual value when her racedays conclude.

Imagine her value if she could win a stakes race!
