The 2019 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. 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 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 2019 ran at the Gold Coast on Saturday January 12, 2019.
