An $800,000 I Am Invincible filly topped a dramatic final day of the Magic Millions National Weanling Sale, which was delayed by nearly an hour due to a medical emergency.

The sale was brought to a halt just before 3pm when a horse handler was seriously injured in the pre-parade ring. The handler was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

“It was a very unfortunate accident and our thoughts and prayers are with the young lady and we hope she's alright,” Magic Millions Managing Director, Barry Bowditch, said.  

“Obviously, she copped a significant kick to the head or to the face and we're just hopeful. She got medical attention straight away and the ambulances were here quickly. So all in all, we're just hopeful that she's in the best care now and it's not too serious.”
