Ladbrokes Tip: Queensland horses have a poor recent record in the Gold Coast Magic Millions Cup

The Magic Millions Cup is a $1 million race held as part of the $10 million Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day in mid-January each Queensland Summer Racing Carnival. The meeting hosts nine races open only to Magic Millions Sales graduates including the $2 million Magic Millions Classic and $2 million Magic Millions Guineas.

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Cup is a Restricted Listed event offering the winner $600,000 in prize money, and is run under quality handicap conditions over 1400m. The maximum handicap is 61kg and minimum is 54kg, while the field capacity is 16 horses plus five emergencies that all came via a Magic Millions Catalogue.

Horses come into the Magic Millions Cup field via earlier summer races including the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) in Sydney or the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) in Brisbane. Many runners will have had a start in either the Magic Millions Cup or another Magic Millions race in previous years.

The next edition of the Magic Millions Cup runs on Saturday January 12, 2019.
