Magic Millions’ 104 stakes winners during the season ranged in purchase price from $1800 to $720,000 and emerged from 14 different auctions the company stages each year.

During the 2015/16 racing season Magic Millions graduates won about 5000 races in Australia alone, earning more than $154 million with no fewer than 620 black type top three finishes.

The high class performances were led by champion mare Winx – the highest rated Australian racehorse and highest rated mare in the world.

Another exceptional performer was Queensland-bred international Group 1 winner Buffering, who also won another two Group 1 races in Australia. The $22,000 Gold Coast March Yearling from Racetree, has now earned a staggering $7,267,694.

Black Heart Bart – from the Queensland-bred mare Sister Theresa and a $20,000 Perth Yearling Sale purchase – won five stakes races during the season including the Group 1 The Goodwood in Adelaide and boosted his earnings to $1,979,850.

Tarquinn Shadow, winner of the listed Starstruck Classic, emerged as the company’s best value stakes winner of the season – a $1800 purchase from the 2012 Perth Winter Thoroughbred Sale.

Another great success story was multiple stakes winner Sold For Song, a $2500 purchase from the Gold Coast Yearling Sale. With three wins and five placings from just nine starts, Sold For Song has already earned connections more than $350,000.

Libby joins other successful female former jockeys like Bernadette Cooper, Priscilla Schmidt and Chantelle Buckley in the Sky team.

INDUCTION: Provisional Mayor of Whyalla Lyn Breuer said she would be a ‘tough’ chair of the Whyalla City Council who would ‘stick to order’.After a winning tight electoral race, Lyn Breuer was sworn in as Provisional Mayor of Whyalla during Monday’s Whyalla City Council meeting.
Nanjing Night Net

Ms Breuer swore an oath to fulfill the duties of Mayorin front of a Justice of the Peace before addressing the Councillors prior to the meeting.

“I want to thank the people of Whyalla for making me the Mayor of Whyalla, and I particularly want to make tribute to Jim Pollock who served this city long and well…Jim should still be here, we miss him terribly,” she said.

“Whyalla is at a crossroads as we all know, I have lived in Whyalla all my life and this, certainly to me, is the most important time in our history.”

“Council must be respected, happy and proactive, and we need to provide leadership to our city.”

Ms Breuer described herself as a ‘tough’ chair, having previously been speaker for state parliament.

“I will make mistakes tonight, there are some differences in council procedure and I will forget, be a little bit patient with me,” she said.

“I will stick to order, certainly with procedures for speaking, we will follow that through over future meetings.”

Ms Breuer said her experience and knowledge of Whyalla would help her navigate a ‘very difficult period’ over the next two years.

“It was a difficult election…a difficult time for council staff, but we have to put that behind us now, we need to move on in the interest of our city and our people,” she said.

“We as a council need to work together, to respect each other, to be professional and look after Whyalla.”

“Thank you for the honour of being Mayor of Whyalla, and I will do my utmost to look after this city which I love.”

Ms Breuer survived a tight race against fellow candidate and forming Acting Mayor Tom Antonio, who received more first preferences, but ultimately fell short after preferences were distributed from the remaining candidates.

Councillor Robert Schmitz fared well in the election, with the third-highest amount of votes giving him a solid result.

All councillors retained their positions on the council, meaning Cr Jenny Barnes and Cr David Knox remained on the council along with Cr Schmitz and Cr Antonio.

Ms BreuerI served on Whyalla Council from 1991 to 1997, during which time I was Deputy Mayor for threeyears.

She was then elected to State Parliament for 18 years which includedthreeyears as Speaker.

Ms Breuer is currently Chair of CEG in Whyalla, a member of the RDAWEP, and Chair of the Andamooka Town Management Committee.

Picture: JAMES DAVIESHORSHAMRural City Council has given residents and businesses an extra five days to make submissions on itsHorsham Integrated Transport Strategy draft report.
Nanjing Night Net

Horsham council released the report on July 29 with a deadline for submissions set for August 17.

The new deadline is August 22.

The draft report calls for new roads and bridges around Horsham over the next five to 40 years and recommends ‘option D’ for a truck bypass east of the city.

Horsham council has also released a draft Horsham Aerodrome Master Plan but its submission deadline has been left unchanged for August 19.

The aerodrome and bypass reportshavebeen heavily criticised by commercial pilots and nearby farmers.

Two information sessions were held at Horsham Civic Centre on August 11 to explain both transport documents.

Councildirector of technical services John Martin said that about 50 people attended each session, which saw a broad range of views being expressed about both plans.

“Some comments were made that there was insufficient time for the public to provide feedback and as a result, council has decided to extend the period for comments on Horsham Integrated Transport Strategy,”he said.

Mr Martin said that Council had not yet formed a view on the recommendations of either document, and is seeking as much public comment as possible to inform its consideration of the recommendations.

“For this reason, the period for comment for the Integrated Transport Strategy has been extended by nearly a week,” he said.

“Council will place a lift-out in the Mail-Times on August 17to help ensure that the community is aware of the proposed options and has a chance to comment on them.”

Mr Martin said that a detailed explanation of the recommendations, including a form that can be used to provide written responses, is provided on Council’s website at梧桐夜网hrcc.vic.gov419论坛.

The aerodrome master plan and transport draft report can both be read online.

Ivory KOs opponent with devastating kick

Ivory steps up to fight for title

BENDIGO’S mixed martial arts star Richie Ivory has plundered his way into the BRACE MMA tournament final.

The Irish-born 28-year-old needed only one minute and six seconds to dispose of his semi-final opponent Ben Watson on Saturday night in Canberra.

Watson, from Sydney, had entered the fight undefeated in two professional fights.

Any thoughts of a third-straight win were soon gone, when Ivory unleashed a devastating head-kick to end the bout in the opening round.

He will meet Darwin ‘Sugar’ Sagurit in the final at the AIS in Canberra in November.

The Sydney fighter earned a spot in the final with a technical knockout win over New Zealand’s Byron Cowell, on the same card as Ivory.

It will be a much-anticipated final with the pair initiallyscheduled to clash for Ivory’s Australian bantamweight title a few months ago, until the Bendigo fighter was forced to pull out of the contest due to a broken nose.

“The doctors wouldn’t clear me, so he kind of used that in his post-fight speech, to say that I have been ducking him,” Ivory said.

“That will make for a good fight in Canberra.

“He’s like a tank – he’s about 5’3″ and a pretty solid little fellow.”

The Watson-fight was beamed live around the world on UFC Fight Pass, including to an eager audience of Ivory’s friends from Fit Republic in Golden Square, where he runs the MMA gym.

“All the guys from the gym were in another of the guy’s house watching it – there was like20 of them watching it,” he said.

“I think for this one in November we’ve got a big crowd from Bendigo going to Canberra.

“And hopefully a big Irish crowd of my friends – it will be a big show.”

Ivory will potentially have one more fight before his BRACE final.

He said the one drawback from his Canberra was having to partner behind, three weeks after she gave birth to the couple’s first son Rian.

NORTH EAST BOUND: Sri Lankan cricketer Dilhara Lokuhettige is expected to play for Tallangatta this season. Picture: GETTY IMAGES
Nanjing Night Net

AN ALL-ROUNDERwho has represented Sri Lanka will play for Tallangatta this season, two years after the club first tried to recruit him.

Dilhara Lokuhettige, 36, played nine one-day internationals and two T20 games for his country in a career that includes 146 first class matches.

A right-handed batsman and fast-mediumbowler, Lokuhettige is due to arrive in Australia on September 26.

Tallangatta club captain Matt Armstrong said the situationcame about through the recruit’s friendship withMount Beauty player Ashan Ranaweera after an earlier import had pulled out.

“It’s been a two-yearjourney to get him out here,” Armstrong said.

“We attempted to get him out for last season but there were difficulties around migration and the visas.

“We overcame those concerns this year.We had to get letters from Cricket Australia, had to get letters from the Sri Lankan Cricket Board, we had to do sponsorship arrangements, so it’s been sixmonths of pretty hard work to get that through.”

Lokuhettige made his one-day international debut against India in 2005 and also played his most recentODI against that country eight years later.

His international T20 matches took place in October 2008.

According to the cricinfo website, the cricketer began first class cricket in the 2000-01 season and has amassed 5464 runs at an average of 25.89, scoring seven centuries and 20 half centuries, with a highest score of 211.

In bowling, he has claimed 354 wickets at 24.44, with best figures of 7/64.

“Dilhara Lokuhettige is one of the first Sri Lankan cricketers to be labelled a Twenty20 specialist,” cricinfo said.

Armstrong felt the recruit would fit well into the Tallangatta side.

“We’ve had experience of bringing guys in from overseas consistently for a decade now,” he said.“All of our guys will have a lot to learn from him, having played international cricket alongside some pretty good players.”

The clubheld an informal gathering on Sunday ahead of pre-season training starting next week.

Armstrong said Tallangatta’s line-up would be similar to last season’s team.

“We’ll have Dilhara obviously and looking like another player from England coming out to join us for the year and then all of the players that we had last year have re-signed to go around again,” he said.“It’s just a really good culture out there, so people come on one or two-year deals and end up staying for a decade.”
