The Magic Millions Trophy – run in 2021 as the Magic Millions Subzero – is one of the richest races on the lucrative Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day held in Queensland each January.

Part of the coveted Magic Millions Racing Carnival the summer race meeting features nine races including the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m), $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) and five $1 million races including the Magic Millions Subzero Trophy.

Now run over a staying distance of 2400m – increased from its previous 2200m distance for the 2020 edition – the Gold Coast Magic Millions Trophy is a quality handicap race that attracts a host of smart Magic Millions graduates.

Horses may come into the Magic Millions Gold Coast Trophy field may have had an earlier summer run in a race like Sydney’s Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) in December and in 2015 – 16 Tinto ran second in the Villiers before winning the Magic Millions Trophy the following month. Tinto also won the 2015 Trophy and finished fourth in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas in 2014, so watching the form of past Magic Millions races as a guide to the MM Trophy results is a good tip.

A couple of years later there was another back-to-back Magic Millions Trophy champion with Tumultuous (2018-19).

The Boxing Day races at the Gold Coast have also served as nice recent guides to the Magic Millions Trophy, as has Brisbane’s Listed Bernborough Handicap (1800m) that Centre Pivot won in 2015 before running third in the Trophy at the Gold Coast, while Tinto completed the double in 2014-15.

The Gold Coast Magic Millions Subzero Trophy 2021 ran on Saturday January 16, 2021 and was won by the Chris Waller-trained Black On Gold.

Magic Millions Trophy History

The Magic Millions Trophy – previous known as the Magic Millions Stayers Cup – has been run and won since 2006 and the inaugural winner was Break The Barrier. There have been a couple of multiple winners of the race already including Drizzle (2007-08), Tinto (2015-16) and Tumultuous (2018-19).

Sydney-based jockey Tommy Berry also rode back-to-back winners aboard Kinnersley (2013) and Noisy Ocean (2014) for their respective wins. Kinnersley’s trainer Gai Waterhouse also prepared the 2012 Magic Millions Trophy winner Kontiki Park who was ridden to victory by Nash Rawiller.

The distance of the Magic Millions Trophy was increased from 1800m to 2200m from 2017 and went up again from 2200m to 2400m for the 2020 edition.

For the 2021 edition the race name changed again to the Magic Millions Subzero but retained the 2400m distance.

The Chris Waller-trained Black On Gold finally won the event in 2021 after finishing third in 2019 and second in 2020.
