The Magic Millions Cup is a $1 million race held at Queensland’s Gold Coast Racecourse in January on the iconic $10 million Magic Millions Race Day.

The jewel of the Magic Millions Racing Carnival, the meeting is host to nine Restricted races open only to Magic Millions graduates including the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) and the $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m). Another highlight on the Gold Coast race card at the summer race day is the Restricted Listed Magic Millions Cup run under quality handicap conditions over 1400m.

Horses may come into the Magic Millions Gold Coast Cup field via an earlier summer lead-up in Queensland including the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) and the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m) at Doomben in December. Sydney’s Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) at Randwick is also a good Magic Millions Cup lead-up and in 2015 Strawberry Boy ran third in the former and runner-up in the latter.

The riches of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival often calls graduates of the Magic Millions Cup with races like the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) and the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm make nice upcoming targets later in the year.

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Cup 2021 ran on Saturday January 16, 2021 and was won by the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO Stakes champ Eleven Eleven.

Magic Millions Cup History

The Magic Millions Gold Coast Cup is one of Queensland and the Magic Millions Race Day’s youngest races, first run in 2003 when the Clarry Conners-trained Cosmic Rays won.

Locally-trained Queensland runners have a strong record in the Magic Millions Cup results including wins by the Tony Gollan-trained Spirit Of Boom (2012). Sydney’s best Chris Waller prepared back-to-back Magic Millions Cup winners at the Gold Coast with Triple Elegance (2013) and Velrosso (2014). The event was run over a shorter 1200m distance in 2003.

The Magic Millions Cup prize money was boosted to $1 million for the first time in 2016 and the race day is now Australia’s first $10 million meeting.
