The Conrad Jupiters Magic Millions to be seen by a global audience.

Bloodstock and technology are brought together by QuickStream Australia at the Conrad Jupiters Magic Millions on January 11th 2001.

Gold Coast, Queensland – Magic Millions and Brisbane streaming media company QuickStream have teamed up to allow Internet users around the world to access first ever video previews of horses offered in the prestigious Sales.

In addition to the previews and fully integrated on-line sale catalog, all the action from the 2001 Sales will be broadcast Live to a world wide audience from the Magic Millions Web Site

The live broadcast will offer individuals interested in Australia’s premier Yearling Sale the opportunity to view the lots anywhere in the world as the sales unfold. By logging on the viewer will be able to see:

  • video previews of selected horses prior to the sale; and
  • the live sale ring, including auction progress and sale price; and
  • other aspects of the week long carnival such as scenes from the Gold Coast Turf Day for Queenslands richest race day – Conrad Jupiters Magic Millions.

International interest in the broadcast is expected to eclipse the Australian connection percentages, making the Magic Millions truly a worldwide event.

“Over 40,000 people will visit the Gold Coast to see the Magic Millions and there are a lot more interstate and international interested bloodstock people that would come if they could. Now we can give them the next best thing – seeing and hearing the activity” – Paul Knight – Bloodstock Consultant, Magic Millions.

From December 21, the entire sale catalog will be available on-line and is fully searchable by bloodline, vendor and many other options. The Live Sale broadcast will start from Thursday 11th January at 12noon. A one-hour commentary will precede each sales session.
