The Magic Millions Raceday in Launceston complements the Magic Millions Tasmanian Yearling Sale, being held the day prior to the sale. In 2019 for the first time the Magic Millions races will be conducted on the same program as the Tasmanian Oaks.
Magic Millions, in conjunction with Tasracing & Tasbreeders, is proud to support the state with two races offering a total of $100,000 in prizemoney. Both races are highly contested, as shown by past winners of the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, Hot Dipped and Gold Busker, who both won the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes at their following starts.
For the second time in 2019, Tasracing & Magic Millions are proud to offer a $10,000 Racing Women’s Bonus to connections of the first all female owned (or leased) 2YO in finishing order in the 2019 Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Conditions apply, see below. In 2018, the inaugural Magic Millions-Tasracing Racing Women’s Bonus was won by Tiesto, who ran 2nd in the 2YO Classic (behind Our Long Sali), and was trained by Ken & Tanya Hanson and owned by a group of eight happy women (pictured).
The connections of the three placegetters in both Magic Millions races will also win sales credit vouchers towards purchasing at the 2019 Tasmanian Yearling Sale.

MM/Tasracing Racing Women’s Bonus 2019
