The 2019 Magic Millions Trophy is one of the richest races on the lucrative Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day held in Queensland each January.

Part of the coveted Magic Millions Racing Carnival the summer race meeting features nine races including the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m), $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) and five $1 million races including the Magic Millions Trophy.

Run over a staying distance of 2200m the Gold Coast Magic Millions Trophy is a quality handicap race that attracts a host of smart Magic Millions graduates.

Horses may come into the Magic Millions Gold Coast Trophy field may have had an earlier summer run in a race like Sydney’s Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) in December and in 2015 – 16 Tinto ran second in the Villiers before winning the Magic Millions Trophy the following month. Tinto also won the 2015 Trophy and finished fourth in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas in 2014, so watching the form of past Magic Millions races as a guide to the MM Trophy results is a good tip.

The Boxing Day races at the Gold Coast have also served as nice recent guides to the Magic Millions Trophy, as has Brisbane’s Listed Bernborough Handicap (1800m) that Centre Pivot won in 2015 before running third in the Trophy at the Gold Coast, while Tinto completed the double in 2014-15.

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Trophy 2019 ran on Saturday January 12, 2019 and was won in an upset by the Chris Waller-trained Tumultuous.

The Magic Millions Trophy – previous known as the Magic Millions Stayers Cup – has been run and won since 2006 and the inaugural winner was Break The Barrier. There have been a couple of multiple winners of the race already including Drizzle (2007-08) and Tinto (2015-16).

Sydney-based jockey Tommy Berry also rode back-to-back winners aboard Kinnersley (2013) and Noisy Ocean (2014) for their respective wins. Kinnersley’s trainer Gai Waterhouse also prepared the 2012 Magic Millions Trophy winner Kontiki Park who was ridden to victory by Nash Rawiller.

The distance of the Magic Millions Trophy was increased from 1800m to 2200m from 2017.
