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 13, 2018 and was won by The Everest-bound Viddora.

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.

2018 Magic Millions Sprint Tips

Our exclusive Magic Millions Sprint tips 2018 will be found right here as the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day approaches.

  • 1st: #3 VIDDORA ($2.50)
  • 2nd: #14 SNITZKRAFT ($11)
  • 3rd: #10 PERFECT DARE ($26)

VIDDORA is red hot favourite and is very hard to bet against. She obviously carries a bit of weight (59kg), but this always-honest mare prepared out of Adelaide by Lloyd Kennewell is on the up-and-up and is a genuine Group 1 horse. She proved that finally get a well-earned elite level in Perth’s Winterbottom Stakes after luckless runs at The Valley during the spring. Will run over the top of them late. Brisbane-based three-year-old Snitzel colt SNITZKRAFT is showing plenty of potential including his Doomben black-type win last time out, while PERFECT DARE is one of the best roughies of the day at the track / distance.
