  • 1st: #7 Jonker
  • 2nd: #9 Exhilarates
  • 3rd: #3 Roheryn



The Magic Millions Sprint – now known as the Magic Millions Snippets – is one of host of restricted summer racing features held at the Gold Coast Racecourse in mid-January on the lucrative $10 million Magic Millions Gold Coast Race Day.

Run over 1200m and offering $1 million in total prize money, the set weights plus penalties event is open only to horses sold through the Magic Millions Sales. The meeting is headlined by two $2 million features – the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas.

The Magic Millions Gold Coast Sprint race is a nice summer target for horses coming off an earlier run in something like one of the Boxing Day races held at Randwick in Sydney or the Listed Canterbury Classic (1200m) also run in Sydney in late December.

Magic Millions Sprint graduates may head to Sydney and Melbourne during the autumn targeting the bigger sprint races across the carnivals.

From 2018 the Magic Millions Sprint was renamed the Magic Millions Snippets in honour of the inaugural Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Snippets (1987).

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Sprint 2021 ran on Saturday January 16, 2021 as the Magic Millions Snippets and was won by the Tony Gollan-trained favourite Jonker.
