  • 1st: #3 Lady Laguna
  • 2nd: #11 Miss Hellfire
  • 3rd: #14 Maid To Fit



The Magic Millions Fillies & Mares is one of eleven Restricted races held at Queensland’s Gold Coast Racecourse each January as part of the iconic $13.5 million Magic Millions Summer Racing Carnival.

The meeting is headlined by two $3 million races – the Magic Millions 2YO Classic & Magic Millions 3YO Guineas – and is the highlight of the annual Magic Millions Racing Carnival.

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Fillies & Mares race is a 1300m showdown run at set weights plus penalties by female gallopers that are graduates of the Magic Millions Sales. Formerly run as the Magic Millions Gold Coast Fillies & Mares Handicap, race conditions changed from handicap to set weights + penalties for the 2017 edition.

Runners may come into the field via an earlier summer run either in Sydney or Queensland such as Randwick’s Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) in December or Brisbane’s Listed Just Now Quality (1350m). Mares may go on to run in feature races over the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival such as the Group 3 Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) in March.

Some of the best out of the race may also continue onto the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) in Adelaide in April. The latest mares to complete the Magic Millions Fillies & Mares – Robert Sangster Stakes double in the same season are Driefontein (2014) and Snapdancer (2022).

The best out of the Magic Millions Fillies & Mares often continue onto a Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival campaign later in the year.

Good targets include the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes and the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara.

In 2018 the Magic Millions Fillies & Mares winner Invincibella won the Dane Ripper that June. She also won both the Magic Millions Fillies & Mares, Dane Ripper and the Tattersall’s Tiara in 2019. Invincibella made history in 2020 taking out her third straight Magic Millions Fillies & Mares race, while the 2021 form was franked with the upset 30/1 winner Krone going on to win Sydney’s Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) that autumn.

The 2022 Gold Coast Magic Millions Fillies & Mares form was franked with the winner Snapdancer going on to win two subsequent Group 1 races taking out that year’s Robert Sangster Stakes in Adelaide and the Memsie Stakes in Melbourne.

The 2024 Gold Coast Magic Millions Fillies & Mares ran on Saturday January 13, 2024 and was won well by the Annabel Neasham-trained four-year-old Lady Laguna ($3.10F) for the punters.

Looks a day for the favourites at the Gold Coast for Magic Millions Day 2024 including in the Fillies & Mares where the Annabel Neasham-trained Overshare four-year-old, Lady Laguna, looks the deserving top elect and one to beat. She is out over 1300m here and, despite not having had won over further than 1200m, looks in a good position with James McDonald in the saddle. Similar weight on her back last start in Brisbane for a Black-Type victory and can salute again.

2024 Magic Millions Fillies & Mares Nominations

The Magic Millions Fillies & Mares 2024 nominations will be provided below once released the Monday of race week.

Magic Millions Fillies & Mares History

Over the past decade the Magic Millions Fillies & Mares race at the Gold Coast has changed from a handicap clash to a set weights plus penalties race.

A number of nice types have won the event including Group 1 winner Driefontein (2014) for Sydney’s Gai Waterhouse.

The Chris Waller-trained Invincibella won back-to-back editions of the race in 2018-19 and went on to win the 2019 Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara in Brisbane over the winter. She returned in 2020 to make it an historical three-peat with yet another victory in the $1 million feature.

The Gold Coast’s Magic Millions Day – including the 2023 Magic Millions Fillies & Mares -was abandoned after the opening two races due to ongoing rainfall, deteriorating track conditions and unsafe jockey conditions and rescheduled for the following Thursday.
