With a revitalised QTIS scheme commencing in August and the recent announcement of Magic Millions staging the country’s richest raceday, each yearling offered at the Gold Coast March Yearling Sale will be eligible for over $14 million in QTIS only payments and over $24 million in exclusive Magic Millions and QTIS races.
The $10 million Magic Millions Gold Coast Raceday in 2016 will see the inaugural running of the $1 million Magic Millions QTIS All-Aged Handicap – a race in which eligible horses can run in each year – as well as any other on the day with the payment of the once off Magic Millions Race Series nomination and QTIS registration. In a special offer to buyers at the Gold Coast March Yearling Sale, the Race Series nomination fee for horses purchased at this sale is $3,300 (inc GST), capped for seven years under the new partnership with Racing Queensland.
