The Magic Millions 2YO Classic is the highlight event of the illustrious Gold Coast Magic Millions Racing Carnival that takes place at the Gold Coast Racecourse annually in January.
The race is held on the highly anticipated Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day and is open only to horses previously purchased at the Magic Millions yearling sales. The meeting became the country’s first offering $10 million in prize money in 2016 and continues to grow in prestige and stakes.
As well as the Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic the meeting features 10 other events including the $3 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m).*
*In 2023 the Magic Millions 2YO Classic ran on Thursday January 19 after being postponed following the weather-related abandoned Gold Coast meeting the Saturday prior.
The Magic Millions Classic is also worth $3 million in prize money as of 2024 and is contested over 1200m by two-year-old Magic Millions graduates.
Horses in the Gold Coast’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic field may have had a lead-up run the month before in Sydney’s Wyong Magic Millions Classic (1100m). Another good lead-up into the lucrative $3 million feature is the Group 3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) in Brisbane a fortnight earlier.
Coolangatta (2021 – 2022) is the last two-year-old to complete the BJ McLachlan Stakes – Magic Millions 2YO Classic double.
The best out of the Magic Millions Classic go on to have successful autumn campaigns including a possible run in the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens. Capitalist (2016) was the last horse to win the Magic Millions 2YO Classic – Golden Slipper double as a juvenile.
The 2022 Magic Millions 2YO Classic form was franked with the winning filly Coolangatta continuing on to run third in that autumn’s Golden Slipper results. She also won the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) at The Valley in the spring.
The 2024 Magic Millions 2YO Classic runs on Saturday January 13, 2024 offering an unprecedented $3 million in total prize money.

Magic Millions Classic History
The Magic Millions Classic was first run in 1987 when the Sally Rogers-trained Snippets claimed victory. From 1988 through until 1991, two races were run every year, one solely for fillies. Then in 1992 there was again two Magic Millions Classic races run, one over the standard 1200m and the other over 1400m. It was in this year that Clan O’Sullivan set a time record for the race of 1:08.46, the champion horse winning both runnings of the event for 1992. A similar thing happened the following year in 1991 when star filly Bold Promise claimed victory in both the fillies and the open Magic Millions Classic races.
A host of star two-year-olds have won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast over the years including subsequent Golden Slipper champion Capitalist (2016).
The fillies have a dominant record over the colts and geldings in recent Magic Millions Classic history including wins by Houtzen (2017), Sunlight (2018), Exhilarates (2019), Away Game (2020), and that year’s odds-on favourite Coolangatta (2022).
The Gold Coast’s Magic Millions Day – including the 2023 Magic Millions 2YO Classic -was abandoned after the opening two races due to ongoing rainfall, deteriorating track conditions and unsafe jockey conditions and rescheduled for the following Thursday.
The 2024 Magic Millions Classic prize purse was increased to $3 million.
