2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Track Update

The Gold Coast Racecourse is set to host the highly anticipated 2011 Magic Millions Race Day this Saturday, January 15, however the nine-race programme could be rescheduled to Sunday or later depending on the condition of the rain-affected track.

Heavy rainfall in many parts of Queensland and subsequent flooding have left the Gold Coast track in dire form, the most recent update from the stewards being that parts of the track are unsafe for racing.

Currently the track is rated a Heavy 10, the heaviest condition a track can remain for racing.

However, certain sections of the track present a major problem to the Magic Millions races continuing as planned.

Racing Queensland steward Daniel Aurich has identified the section from the winning post to the 400m and the segment from the 800m to the 1600m both unsafe for racing.

Despite concerns, Aurich has stated that with clear weather the improvement to the track should be dramatic allowing conditions to recover enough for events to proceed as scheduled.

In the last 24 hours just 3mm of rain has fallen at the Gold Coast track and the weather is currently fine.

A final decision will be made early Saturday morning, unless more rain falls forcing an early choice to reschedule.

The track condition is not the only threat to the quality of this year’s Magic Millions Carnival Race programme as the race fields could also diminish with flooding and road closures making the task of horses travelling from affected parts of Queensland and interstate an issue.

Whether the Magic Millions Race Day runs as planned or is rescheduled, one thing is certain, punters will get the best odds and access to premium betting markets online at Luxbet.
