The much anticipated 2017 Gold Coast Magic Millions Carnival will take place on the Gold Coast in Queensland in January with the exciting Gold Coast Magic Millions race day falling on Saturday 14th January 2017 at the picturesque Gold Coast racecourse.

The 2017 Magic Millions Raceday will offer $10M in prizemoney and become Australia’s richest race meeting, ranking in the world’s top 10, as part of a seven-year partnership until 2022 in an exciting racing initiative for the Magic Millions Racing Queensland Summer Carnival.

The Magic Millions carnival is held annually each January and has become an integral part of the Australian racing calendar and injects around $90 million-plus into the local economy.

The yearling sale attracts the most high profile buyers from around the world as well as leading Australian trainers, and yearlings purchased from the sale often go on to become elite gallopers at the highest level before becoming valuable stallions and broodmares after retirement.

Gold Coast Racecourse

The Gold Coast race track has very short runs to the first turn from the 1000m and 1200m starts, and slightly longer runs for the 1300m and 1400m starts which is where most races on Magic Million's day commence from. The Stayer's Cup begins from the 1800m chute which has a reasonable run to the first turn.

Racing at the Gold Coast is clockwise and the track circumference is 1885 metres, while the staight length is 400 metres which provides a good run home.
