Magic Millions QTIS Open History

The first official running of the Gold Coast Magic Millions QTIS Open was in 2016 when the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day underwent a number of changes. Some of the original races were made defunct including the Magic Millions Class 6 Plate and this handicap event took over.

Star Queensland galloper and multiple Group 1 champion Buffering won the inaugural edition of the Magic Millions QTIS Open Plate by one and a half lengths in a smart time of 1 minute and 15 seconds.
