I'm getting ready to check out of my hotel room and spend a day just wandering around Broadbeach. Happily I can still use the nice pool here until I leave for the airport. Here are a few initial images from the Gold Coast adventure.
|Firm friends. Tash and I at the Gold Coast.|
|Love this colt. This is Lot 434, the sale topper who sold for $1m. He's by "my boy" Redoute's Choice out of Hades (a daughter of Hasna who I loved). He was bred and sold by Newhaven Park, and this is John Kelly's son Richard with the colt.|

|Dancing ponies... Lot 509|
|There's a little 'bear pit' spot at the Gold Coast track. This is the last race. It's a fun little spot.|
|Sweet Idea wins the Magic Millions Guineas. Continuing "my boy" Snitzel's great run.|
|Unencumbered wins the Magic Millions 2yo Classic. He's a Testa Rossa colt and bred by Newhaven Park.|
