The 2019 Magic Millions Sprint – now known as the Magic Millions Snippets – is one of host of restricted summer racing features held at the Gold Coast Racecourse in mid-January on the lucrative $10 million Magic Millions Gold Coast Race Day.

Run over 1200m and offering $1 million in total prize money, the set weights plus penalties event is open only to horses sold through the Magic Millions Sales. The meeting is headlined by two $2 million features – the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas.

The Magic Millions Gold Coast Sprint race is a nice summer target for horses coming off an earlier run in something like one of the Boxing Day races held at Randwick in Sydney or the Listed Canterbury Classic (1200m) also run in Sydney in late December.

Magic Millions Sprint graduates may head to Sydney during the autumn and run in something like the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) in February or head further south to Melbourne for a race like the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield.

From 2018 the Magic Millions Sprint will be renamed the Magic Millions Snippets in honour of the inaugural Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Snippets (1987).

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Sprint 2019 runs on Saturday January 12, 2019.
