The Inglis Millennium is the Inglis’ sales equivalent to the Magic Millions’ 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast.
The Inglis Millennium is one of the more lucrative Restricted races of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival offering $2 million in prize money.
The event runs at Royal Randwick Racecourse in early to mid February.
It is now the feature race at the meeting as of 2024 and is joined on the program by the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m) for three-year-old horses.
It was inaugurated in 2015 as the Inglis Classic before being renamed and revamped as the Inglis Millennium for the first time in 2019.
From 2015-2018 it ran over 1200m before being reduced to the current 1100m distance in 2020.
The race holds Restricted Listed status in the same vein as the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) event for Magic Millions graduates held on the Gold Coast in Queensland each summer.
Held over 1100m the event is open only to two-year-old nominated to the Inglis Race Series that were offered for sale at any Inglis Yearling Sale.
For the first time in 2023 the event also has attached the Inglis Pink Bonus whereby a purchase from the Inglis Sales is fully paid up for the Inglis Race Series and registered as minimum 75% female owned. There is a $400,000 bonus to the first eligible majority female owned-horse home in the 2023 Inglis Millennium results.
The latest edition of the Inglis Millennium ran on Saturday February 10, 2024 at Royal Randwick with the punters celebrating after the strong win by the top elect Fully Lit ($2.80F) from the Waterhouse/Bott stable.

Inglis Millennium Betting
Inglis Millennium betting odds are led by two-year-olds with previous race experience, non-maidens, and any that have contested key lead-up events in Sydney.
Any youngsters that have won earlier Inglis-restricted events also sit higher up the Inglis Millennium betting markets in the autumn.
Fillies are also usually kept safe in betting on the Inglis Millennium race with the girls having won five of the nine editions of the event from 2015-2023. Xtravagant Star (2022) followed by Learning To Fly (2023) are the latest fillies to beat home the boys in the Inglis Millennium results.
Profiteer ($1.75 in 2021) for his five length victory over 100/1 roughie Baranof in 2021 followed by Learning To Fly ($4 in 2023) and Fully Lit ($2.80 in 2024) are the last favourites in Inglis Millennium betting to salute for the punters.
There was a notable upset earlier when Prime Star won the 2020 Inglis Millennium at $18 odds.
There was also plenty of value in the 2019 Inglis Millennium winner Castelvecchio, the subsequent Group 1 winner taking out the race that ran at Warwick Farm that year as a $21 outsider.
Inglis Millennium Field
The Inglis Millennium race field attracts a field of the season’s most promising two-year-old sprinters.
A key early lead-up into the Inglis Millennium field is the Restricted Listed Inglis Nursery (1000m) held at Randwick the December prior or the $1 million Golden Gift (1100m) held the November before.
Following a run in the Inglis Millennium field horses may continue on in Sydney over the autumn targeting a race like the Group 2 $1 million Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) back at Randwick in April on the second day of ‘The Championships’. In 2022 Paris Dior improved on a second in the Inglis Millennium to win that year’s Percy Sykes Stakes.
In 2023 the Inglis Millennium winning filly Learning To Fly came off a winning debut in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) a fortnight earlier.
2024 Inglis Millennium Field
The official Inglis Millennium field 2024 and barriers will be published here once it’s finalised on the Tuesday the 6th of February, 2024.
The Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained colt Fully Lit is favourite in the Inglis Millennium 2024 final field after breaking his maiden status over 1100m at Rosehill on debut by a big margin last month.

- To Win: #1 Odinson ($7.50 at time of publish) – BET NOW
Typically open edition of the lucrative Inglis Millennium with plenty of promising two-year-olds on display. Going just outside the favourite with the Ciaron Maher-trained Odinson looking well placed here. The Night Of Thunder colt is fresh and has two previous starts on his CV already from last time in. He was third in a Group 3 on debut at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day only a quarter length beaten before atoning to break his maiden status second-up in the Inglis Nursery over 1000m here at Randwick in December. He did that from barrier 13 of 13 and gets a kinder draw here in gate four. Trialled well at Warwick Farm in the interim and should see out the 1100m. Can win.

Already the Inglis Millennium form has gone on to stack-up in tougher events over the years including when the 2019 winner Castelvecchio returned that April to run third in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) before winning the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m).
Castelvecchio also came back as a three-year-old that spring to run second in both the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) in Sydney as well as Melbourne’s iconic Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley. He also won the 2020 Rosehill Guineas further franking the Inglis Millennium form.
In 2023 Learning To Fly won the Inglis Millennium before success in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m). She also contested the Golden Slipper that autumn but lost her rider.
