BOUGHT* - $3,610,000
Forget the Cox Plate, the real race was happening on Malin Street this afternoon, with auctioneer Richard Earle fittingly in charge with his trademark authoritative style. Richard opened on a vendor bid of $2,950,000, with assisting agent Greg Toogood quipping 'you're better than that, Richard!' in response to his offer. The crowd certainly agreed, as the first bidder soon emerged with an offer for $2,975,000. That drew out Bidder 2, who clearly became the one to beat. Before long, we had three, four and then five bidders who tried to wrestle the lead from Bidder 2, but were always knocked back almost immediately. "He really wants it," Richard observed, as he urged the crowd and the bidders to stay with him as the bids came so quickly it was nearly impossible to keep up. Bidder 2 kept his stamina up and showed no signs of slowing down as the race to the finish kept the large crowd hugely entertained. An offer for $3,6100,000 came from Bidder 2; would this be enough? It was, as the contract hit Richard's hand to a thunderous round of applause from an appreciative crowd. Talk about a super auction for Super Saturday!
