2019 MAGIC MIL­LIONS

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - RACING -

ONLY three Gold Coast­trained horses have won the premier race on their home track since the Magic Mil­lions 2YO Clas­sic be­gan in 1987.

The first was the Sally Rogers-trained Snip­pets who won the in­au­gu­ral race.

The Gold Coast had to wait an­other 23 years be­fore Mil­i­tary Rose won for lo­cal trainer Gil­lian Hein­rich.

The Toby Ed­mond­strained filly Houtzen is the only other Gold Coast horse to claim the clas­sic. She came from the out­side bar­rier to claim the race in 2017.

Ed­monds is rep­re­sented by two run­ners in to­day’s race, Be­taima and Cham­pagne Jet, while Houtzen is in Race 5.

Cham­pion Syd­ney trainer Chris Waller’s Gold Coast satel­lite stable has two run­ners, Krameric and Lubuk, but they are emer­gen­cies and un­likely to get a run.
