The Magic Millions 3YO Guineas is one of the major races held during the coveted Gold Coast Magic Millions Racing Carnival each January at Queensland’s Gold Coast Racecourse.
The Magic Millions Race Day features nine Restricted events open only to Magic Millions Sales graduates with the line-up headlined by the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) and the Magic Millions Guineas for three-year-olds.
Offering a lucrative $2 million in prize money plus trophies worth $5,000 the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas holds Restricted Listed status and is contested at set weights plus penalties over 1400m.
The Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas field features a host of top gallopers coming off an earlier summer run in lead-up races like the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) run at the Gold Coast on Boxing Day each December. Both Boomsara (2019) and Pierata (2018) came off a lead-up win in the following year’s Vo Rogue Plate before their respective Magic Millions 3YO Guineas victories. For a third straight season, the 2020 Magic Millions Guineas winner Alligator Blood also came off a lead-up win in the Vo Rogue Plate.
Alternatively the three-year-olds in the race could be first-up after their spring campaigns that could have seen them run in races like the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) in November. The Wyong Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO Stakes (1200m) in December is another traditional lead-up to the lucrative race in Queensland the following month.
After the Magic Millions Guineas at the Gold Coast many horses go on to contest autumn races including the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington in Melbourne in early March.
The Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2020 ran at the Gold Coast on Saturday January 11, 2020 and after plenty of pre-race drama was easily won by the odds-on favourite Alligator Blood.
*UPDATE: Alligator Blood was subsequently stripped of his 2020 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas win with the horse disqualified due to a positive test to a banned substance. Original runner-up Eleven Eleven was subsequently declared as the official Magic Millions 3YO Guineas winner for 2020 the following July.

*2020 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Results

- 2nd: #9 Eleven Eleven (Subsequently elevated to Winner)
- 3rd: #5 Exhilarates
The Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2020 results saw star Queenslander Alligator Blood overcome plenty of pre-race drama to easily account for his rivals in a brilliant two length victory as the odds-on favourite. After a four-hour travel delay getting to the Gold Coast for the $2 million feature, Alligator Blood also had to stay calm throughout a pre-race scratching. None of it phased the ultra-consistent gelding however who took his record up to eight wins from nine starts and his career prize money up over $2 million.
