Magic Millions Sprint 2020

Saturday January 11, 2020

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 11, 2020 and was won by the Chris Waller-trained mare Madam Rouge.

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 was the last favourite in Magic Millions Sprint betting to salute for the punters.

2020 Magic Millions Sprint Odds

The Magic Millions Sprint 2020 betting odds will be detailed below as soon as markets on the $1 million Restricted summer sprint are out.

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.

2020 Magic Millions Sprint Field

The Magic Millions Sprint 2020 field and barrier draw is released on Wednesday January 8, 2019 and will be listed below once out.

The 2020 Magic Millions Snippets Sprint final field features 15 gallopers led in betting narrowly by the widely-drawn Champagne Cuddles (12). Godolphin’s last start winner Isaurian is tipped the danger in a midfield barrier seven draw, while early money is coming for Queensland local Tarzan who has won five of his past six starts.

Magic Millions Sprint Tips

Gold Coast Magic Millions Sprint tips include keeping an eye on runners from Queensland stables with previous Gold Coast racing experience, in-form summer gallopers coming off wins in stakes’ company in a lead-up like the Canterbury Classic and those drawn well in the field.

2020 Magic Millions Sprint Tips

Our exclusive Magic Millions Sprint tips 2020 will be found right here as the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day approaches.

  • To Win: #8 Madam Rouge ($4.80) 

Barrier one gives Chris Waller’s in-form mare a soft run and so long as she doesn’t get caught up at the Gold Coast track, she looks a huge hope to beat the local Queenslanders. James McDonald rides the four-year-old daughter of Zoustar who is a 1200m specialist (6:3-2-0) coming off  nice 1.3 length win in Randwick’s Listed Xmas Classic (1200m). She’s a Group 3 winner over the distance and rates highly here even with a slight rise in weight to 56kg.

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.
