Magic Millions National Yearling Sale - Hinchinbrook x Mauritius 16' Colt

YOUR 3YO CLASSICS HORSE - Hinchinbrook x Mauritius '16 colt


  • Tried and tested, proven and true – Hinchinbrook is renowned for the consistency of his progeny and we certainly feel that is the case with our offering here today. Impressing everyone who handles him with his natural size and strength, this big boy is packed with power and he certainly looks every bit of an explosive sprinter-miler who will get over distance as he ages.

  • Our colt’s dam, Mauritius, is a 6 time winner by renowned damsire Cape Cross who has had a huge influence on Derbys and Oaks races around the world. Cape Cross mares have produced over 30 stakes winners, including 3 Group 1 winners. There is also a strong affinity with champion sires Danzig and Nijinsky, who when these two meet between 3 and 5 generations they enhance racing ability in the resulting foal - some examples are Fastnet Rock, Redoutes Choice, Sunline, and Black Caviar to name only a few!

  • Mauritius is a 6 time winner from 1600m to 2400m and this colt is her first foal.

  • This colt's attitude in his work is second to none and anything we ask of him, he completes with ease. He has a lovely free flowing action with a massive overstep when he walks - a typical trait of a colt who is destined for the late 2YO races such as the G1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) & the G1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

  • He has second to none conformation and is an all round athlete.

  • Extremely good depth of girth, this is believed to be important to house good sized lungs. The larger the lungs, the greater the oxygen intake enabling peak performance under racing conditions.

  • He has the pedigree to match as his pedigree page is saturated with blacktype horses. There is a lot of speed injected into the pedigree in the 3rd Dam &


His Sire, Hinchinbrook...

New South Wales has further cemented itself as the best place in Australia to race thoroughbreds, announcing another round of prizemoney increases effective from September 1st.

These increases amount to an annual increase of an amazing $24 million. New South Wales will now be paying $260 million annually in prizemoney and bonuses, which is the highest of any State in Australia. The majority of the increase in prizemoney will be on horses finishing fourth to tenth in races, bolstering returns to connections of the horses not finishing in the top three and making the thrill of racehorse ownership even more affordable.

There's never been a better time to get further involved! Prizemoney has increased in some areas by as much as 200% since June 2012 in some areas, with the minimum rise an astonishing 50%.

She is also BOBS (Breeder Owner Bonus Scheme), and BOBS EXTRA nominated which means he will be running for millions of dollars in extra bonuses over and above any prizemoney. For example (using some standard race figures):

Metro Race (Saturday) – Prizemoney = $100,000 plus BOBS up to $40,000. Total on offer = $140,000!

Metro Race (Midweek) – Prizemoney = $40,000 plus BOBS up to $20,000. Total on offer = $60,000!

Provincial Race – Prizemoney = $30,000 plus BOBS up to $10,000. Total on offer = $40,000!
