Magic Millions Racing Women’s Initiative:
In 2012 Magic Millions proudly introduced a world first for women.
Now a decade later, the ground-breaking Magic Millions Racing Women’s initiative is not only promoting racehorse ownership amongst females – it is increasing it.
Established by Magic Millions owners Katie Page-Harvey and Gerry Harvey, the foundation Racing Women’s Bonus of $500,000 which is on offer to the first four all-female owned or leased horses in finishing order in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, is in addition to race prizemoney of $2,000,000. A key aim of the initiative is to highlight and promote the important roles played by women in the thoroughbred racing and breeding industry.
Whether you’re new into the horse-owning game or already a horse owner you could win BIG, just like the lucky female connections of Sunlight in 2018, who collected $1,525,000 for winning the Magic Millions 2YO Classic plus first place in the Racing Women’s Bonus. Incredibly in the short history of the Bonus, there have been four winners of the 2YO Classic which were also owned by all female syndicates and therefore Racing Women’s Bonus eligible.
In addition to Sunlight, Real Surreal (pictured right) created history when she won the 2013 edition of the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and was the inaugural Racing Women’s Bonus winner. Le Chef (2015) and Away Game (2020) also achieved first place in the race and the Racing Women’s Bonus.
For entrants into the $2,000,000 The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic in 2023, a $500,000 Bonus will be distributed to the connections of the first four ‘all female owned or leased horses’ in finishing order.
Bonus Distribution (2YO Classic)
1st – $325,000 (65%) plus $3,000 trophy
2nd – $100,000 (20%)
3rd – $50,000 (10%)
4th – $25,000 (5%)
The horse must be an eligible Magic Millions Yearling Sale graduate and be nominated for the Magic Millions Race Series as the Bonus forms part of the Magic Millions Race Series for 2022 Yearling Sale graduates. Please view the Racing Women’s Bonus registration for further detailed conditions.
The horse must be 100% owned or leased by female connections to be eligible for the Bonus.
To be eligible, the horse must race in 100% female ownership (or lease) at all times prior to and including The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic. The ownership (or lease) must remain unchanged from the two-year-old’s first official race start until the time the Bonus is awarded (unless a change of ownership (or lease) is approved by Magic Millions).
Payment of the $500,000 is guaranteed. Should less than four Bonus eligible horses make the starting field, the portion of the Bonus not won will be distributed evenly amongst the eligible horses who complete the race.
