Magic Millions QTIS Open History

The first official running of the Gold Coast Magic Millions QTIS Open was in 2016 when the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day underwent a number of changes. Some of the original races were made defunct including the Magic Millions Class 6 Plate and this handicap event took over.

Star Queensland galloper and multiple Group 1 champion Buffering won the inaugural edition of the Magic Millions QTIS Open Plate by one and a half lengths in a smart time of 1 minute and 15 seconds.

In 2020 Outback Barbie won the Magic Millions QTIS Open after having previous run third in both the Magic Millions 2YO Classic (2018) and Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (2019).
