Magic Millions Cup

in recent years the prize money has been $400,000 but as of 2018 the prize money for the Magic Millions Cup is a lucrative $1million. The event is held during the Gold Coast’s prestigious Magic Millions Racing Carnival, the most important period all year for the Gold Coast Turf Club.

The Magic Millions Cup is worth a million dollars so there’s plenty on the line but it’s far from the biggest event on the program.

The Magic Millions 3YO Guineas is worth $1 million whilst the main event Magic Millions 2YO Classic boasts a $2 million pool.

Regardless of this there’s no doubting the value of the Magic Millions Cup and owners and trainers from across the country line up for a shot at the title.

The race itself is run over a 1400m sprint and horses must be purchased through the Magic Millions sales for them to be eligible to run.

The Magic Millions Cup is one of the newer additions to the card, first run back in 2003 the inaugural event went to Cosmic Rays for Clarrie Conners.

This is one of the races where local trainers and horses have built an imposing history.

Already three Gold Coast based partnerships have won the title with Alan Bailey and Amex in 2004, Maryann Thexton and Warrior Trader in 2007 as well as Bryan Guy and Masai Pride in 2009.

The Magic Millions Cup promises to keep building momentum over the next few years and its spot on the program is yet another reason why the Gold Coast Magic Millions is such a successful carnival.
