Magic Millions Sprint 2022

Saturday January 15, 2022

Ladbrokes Tip: Interstate visitors have dominated recently Magic Millions Sprint results at the Gold Coast

The Magic Millions Sprint is a Restricted race open only to horses sold through the Magic Millions Catalogue Sales and takes place at the Gold Coast Racecourse in mid-January and from 2018 has been known as the Magic Millions Snippets.

Each season the $10 million Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day is the highlight of the Queensland Summer Racing Carnival. The meeting boasts nine races including three holding Restricted Listed status like the Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Another key support act is the $1 million Gold Coast Magic Millions Sprint run over 1200m.

The set weights plus penalties event is a good next-up option for both local Queensland gallopers and interstate visitors coming off a summer campaign via lead-ups like the Boxing Day races run around the country on December 26 each year.

The latest edition of the Magic Millions Sprint ran on Saturday January 15, 2022 as the Magic Millions Snippets and was won by Tony Gollan’s returning mare Isotope ($2.80F).

Magic Millions Sprint Betting

Betting on the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sprint is very popular with punters each summer. Magic Millions Sprint odds are usually led by sprinters with good form over the distance and those with experience the right-handed way of racing.

A good lead-up performance in earlier summer races in either Queensland or Sydney also help horses start shorter in the Magic Millions Sprint betting markets.

Madam Rouge ($4.80) in 2020,  Jonker ($4.80 in 2021) and Isotope ($2.80F in 2022) are the latest favourites in Magic Millions Sprint betting to salute for the punters giving the top elects three straight wins.

Magic Millions Sprint Field

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Sprint field is made-up of quality Magic Millions sprinters that have likely had a previous Magic Millions Race Day run from earlier years. Horses trained out of Brisbane and the Gold Coast make-up the bulk of the Magic Millions Sprint field each season and the event has a capacity of 16 starters plus five emergencies.

Good lead-up races for gallopers into the Magic Millions Snippets Field include Brisbane’s $200,000 Magic Millions The Buffering that offers a ballot exemption to the winner into the Gold Coast feature even if they are not from the Magic Millions Sales and the Listed $150,000 Christmas Classic (1200m) at Royal Randwick in Sydney in late December.

Madam Rouge (2019-20) was the last sprinter to complete the Christmas Classic – Magic Millions Snippets double.

2022 Magic Millions Sprint Tips

Our exclusive Magic Millions Sprint tips 2022 will be found right here as the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day approaches.

  • To Win: #2 Baller ($8.50 at time of publish) 

Stablemate Isotope leads betting but she hasn’t raced since last April, so steering towards the fellow Gollan-trained Baller who has a very consistent record. Presents rock-hard fit fourth-up after a string of good runs including seconds in both the Group 3 George More and Listed Falvelon this summer. First look at the track but this is a classy six-year-old in barrier two with Tommy Berry riding with the right form lines to challenge.

Magic Millions Sprint Form Guide

The Magic Millions Sprint form guide provided crucial race info including the barriers, saddlecloth numbers, starting prices, jockeys and trainers of all the horses in the field. Looking at the Magic Millions form guides is key before placing your Gold Coast bets and the best form indicators in the Magic Millions Sprint include inside barriers and good lead-up runs in similar class.

The Magic Millions Sprint form was franked in 2021 with the winner Jonker running third in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m), second in the Group 1 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) and winning Melbourne’s Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) throughout the year.

Magic Millions Sprint Results

Magic Millions Sprint results over the past decade show a divide between visiting interstate horses and local sunshine state champions. Until the victory by the Tony Gollan-trained mare Isotope in 2022, the last Queensland-trained Magic Millions Sprint winner was Shamrock Slipper (2013) for Liam Birchley.

Sydney stables have dominated the recent Magic Millions Sprint results.

Plenty of smart horses have taken out the race including subsequent Group 1 Manikato Stakes champion Jonker (2021), Viddora (2018), Husson Eagle (2016), Whittington (2014) and Temple Of Boom (2011) who went on to win the following year’s Group 1 The Galaxy in Sydney.
