Yesterday Racing Queensland released the full list of 2012 Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day nominations and late entries with a trio more three-year-olds adding their name to the list of hopeful Magic Millions 3YO Guineas contenders.
The second richest race on the Magic Millions Racing Carnival program on Saturday January 14, the $1 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) has now drawn a total of 135 entries.
Four late entries were taken for the 2012 Magic Millions Guineas yesterday, the most notable of which was the David Payne-trained Happy Hussy.
The progressive Hussonet filly took her career record to three wins from seven starts at Rosehill last Saturday when holding on in a tight finish to take out a 1400 metre Benchmark 79 at Rosehill.
A four length winner at Canterbury back in November, Happy Hussy also won at Wyong taking out the Lyon Masonry Cup (1350m) on December 21.
Current Magic Millions Guineas odds at Luxbet are led by David Pfieffer’s impressive Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes winner Safusa ($4.80), with Happy Hussy expected to challenge the favourite in the betting once markets are updated.
A total of nine races will run at the Gold Coast for Magic Millions Day 2012, over 560 horses making up the early entries for the program.
The headline event of the meeting will be the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m), and the final field for this along with the 3YO Guineas are due for release on Monday January 7.
The Magic Millions Classic barrier draw will then take place on Tuesday January 10 while the acceptances for the seven remaining Magic Millions features will then be taken on Wednesday January 11.
