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 will be 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 12, 2019 and was won by The Everest-bound Viddora.

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 Doomben’s $150,000 Magic Millions The Buffering (1350m) 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.
