On 30th June, the Hong Kong International Sale (HKIS) took place with great success at Sha Tin Racecourse. The sale has been a brilliant source of stardom in Hong Kong, with recent graduates including Romantic Warrior, the 2022 Hong Kong Derby winner.

The HKIS gives HKJC Permit Holders a chance to buy ready made racehorses sourced from some of the world’s best yearling sales, and pre-trained in the interim in either Australia or Great Britain.
As the Southern Hemisphere agent for the Hong Kong Jockey Club, Boomer Bloodstock is responsible for sourcing a large portion of the HKIS catalogue.
Therefore, we were delighted to see our 2021 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale selection, a Zoustar colt out of Fortune Of War, top the 2023 HKIS at HK$8.6m (A$1.65m).
In total, 15 lots sold for an aggregate of HK$71.6m (A$13.8m), up from HK$71m (A$13.67m) in 2022.
