Every year, the Magic Millions Race Day gets thoroughbred owners’ and jockeys’ blood pumping as they dart around the racecourse for a chance to win huge prize money through a nine-race program. With seven of these races worth over $1 million, it’s not just the horse owners who are looking for a big win, but also large volumes of excited equine experts, punters and exceptionally-dressed guests.
On Saturday 13th January, the Gold Coast Turf Club will be buzzing from 9.00am and drawing in the crowds throughout the day up until 5.30pm. Onlookers will watch in anticipation as some of the most established horse racers from across Australia, New Zealand and around the world attempt to secure their title as champion. It’s a proud moment for many local residents as this event takes place right in the heart of the Gold Coast.
In 2017, hard-working winners included Undoubtable Miss, Irish Constabulary, Heaven’s Delight and Snitzalong, but there was no lack of effort from any of the horses and jockeys involved. This year, the odds are on top horses such as Performer, Ef Troop, Nomothaj, Crockett and Qafila. With any of these trusty steeds in with a chance of winning first place, horse racing enthusiasts around the globe hopefully attempt to predict the future before placing their bets.
Magic Millions auctions some of the highest performing horseracing champions recognised for their speed, strength and agility. With over 6,000 global racing wins under their belt, the thoroughbred sellers hold over 25 sales annually in Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth and Launceston. It’s no surprise that every year, this event is one of the most prominent in the racing calendar.
