Meet Ros The Colourful Bid Spotter

BY Mick Sharkie - @TheSharkTweet
9 months ago Magic Millions

People walk away from the Magic Millions sales talking about two things - the quality of horses purchased and the antics of bid spotters like Ros Buerckner.

Ros has loved horses for as long as she can remember.

“I was born in the racing industry. Thoroughbreds were an absolute passion of mine and my family,” Ros told Mick Sharkie at the recent sales on the Gold Coast.

The colourful character - who works as a children’s entertainer when she’s not bid spotting - has moved through the ranks at the Magic Millions over the past decade.

And her day job is an asset when it comes to helping vendors land a good price for their prized thoroughbreds.

“This room is just full of really big kids. We are all just buying the big boy’s toys, aren’t we?

“It’s like fishing. You’ve got to hook them and catch that fish.

“My favourite move is the box step, a bit of line dancing. It keeps me fit and keeps me laughing.”

Watch the video and see our man Shark make a meal of some of Ros’s best moves.
