The darling of Brisbane race crowds during the war years, Auction was undoubtedly the weight-carrying champion of Queensland racing. Auction also jointly holds the record for most wins at a Brisbane racetrack with 21 at Albion Park. He won a first division carrying 12st6lbs and ran a course record for six and a half furlongs. It also was a weight-carrying record for all tracks in Brisbane which stands nearly 70 years later. Auction won twice at Albion Park with more than 12 stone and won five races with more than 11 stone. The staggering thing about his 21 wins is that 19 of them were in open handicaps. Trained by R. Wall, Auction's win in the 1943 Newmarket (later the Doomben 10,000) saw a record crowd at Albion Park where racing was held during WWII.
