Magic Millions 2yo Classic 2021

The Magic Millions 2YO Classic is a 1200 Set Weights, listen Races for 2YOs of either sex. It is hosted annually on January 16, at Aquis Park Gold Coast.

This Race is one of the first major events of the calendar year – most often providing a glimpse of an Autumn star performer.

2021 Magic Millions 2yo Classic Best Bets

Best Bet – Fake Love $11
Fake Love is a Sydney-bred horse, already putting her in some strong stead for the Magic Millions. With 2 wins and 1 place from 4 starts, and prizemoney of $137,000, Fake Love will go into the draw looking consistent. After taking out The Magic Millions Debutant Stakes against Extreme Warrior and Naples – with Mark Zahra to ride, and also snagging a win at Aquis Park at the Gold Coast with Glen Boss aboard (against other $11.00 prospect, Baby Wong) it’s looking like Fake Love’s race for the taking, at the Magic Millions.

Best Value – Finance Tycoon $15
Finance Tycoon has either won or placed in every race he’s run. Taking out the W in a pre-Melbourne Cup race, the Maribyrnong Plate, at Flemington on November 3rd paying $10 – Finance Tycoon looks hungry to succeed at a sizeable price. Especially after defeating favourite Ingrating. Finance Tycoon is most definitely an each-way prospect, looks likely to win or place with ease. If you’ve backed this colt throughout his career, you’d have achieved a 300% return on investment (trust me, I have).

Rookie Bet – Astrologer
Despite not breaking maiden status – Astrologer looks tougher than he seems on paper. Trained by Peter & Paul Snowden, based at Randwick, this colt was sired by the stallion Star Turn out of the dam Fast ‘n’ Witty. Astrologer finished 4th behind Alpine Edge and Baby Wong, but will strip up much fitter when heading to the Gold Coast for the Magic Millions. He’s trialled well, winning 2 and placing in 1 out of 3 attempts. If he can run well against the competition and replicate past trials – he’s in with a clear shot.

2021 Magic Millions 2yo Classic Trifecta Tips

Fake Love, Finance Tycoon, She’s All Class

She’s All Class is the clear-cut favourite to take home the race, but will most likely fall back into second or third. Finance Tycoon is looking too strong in terms of current racing – and should finish in the top 2. Fake Love looks set to win.

2020 Magic Millions 2yo Classic Field

Away Game

Last Year’s winner is a Victorian Horse, under trainers Ciaron Maher and David Eustace. Early signs were apparent, with her coasting to an easy win in Listed company at Doomben in late December 2019.

King’s Legacy

Peter and Paul Snowden know how to train a two-year-old, and they look to have yet another good one here. The Redoute’s Choice colt trialled strongly before debut, where he produced a solid third placing over 1200 metres at Rosehill. It was then straight to black type racing, where King’s Legacy responded with a debut win in the Listed BJ McLachlan 2YO Plate at Eagle Farm.


Gai Waterhouse has a great record in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, and has a live chance again here with this colt by Not A Single Doubt. Farnan is yet to be headed by another horse on a racetrack, winning his only trial at Warwick Farm before blowing away the competition on race debut at Canberra. Another win at Wyong in December has Farnan primed for this.


Ciaron Maher and David Eustace’s Fastnet Rock colt has shown great progress over his short career. After debuting at Flemington in Melbourne Cup week, he finished a narrow second at Ballarat before breaking his maiden in the Listed Phelan Ready 2YO Colts & Geldings Plate at Doomben.


Can Godolphin win back-back Magic Millions 2YO Classics? Quite possibly with this talented Brazen Beau colt. He broke his maiden on debut at Flemington in December, before running a narrow second to rival Wisdom Of Water around the Gold Coast.


Another promising colt for Peter and Paul Snowden, Aim is highly fancied for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic after winning his first two starts. The second win, a slashing four-length victory at Randwick, set tongues wagging about Aim’s undoubted quality.

Wisdom Of Water

Keen trial watchers looked on in awe as an unraced Wisdom Of Water set his two early trials alight, winning them by five and then seven lengths. His race debut was slightly subdued, with a fourth at Eagle Farm, but a win at the Gold Coast in the first week of January has him well fancied for the 2YO Classic.


It’s yet another high-quality colt for Peter and Paul Snowden. Nitrous overcame a slight hiccup on debut to post a strong win at Canberra second-up, and then another victory at Sydney metro level at Randwick just after Christmas.


The Chris Munce-trained Kavak is a local hope for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic. The colt had a great start to his career with a strong trial win and a debut race win at Eagle Farm, which was followed by a pair of seconds at the Gold Coast and Doomben. A further tune-up trial has Kavak primed for the Magic Millions.

Euphoric Summer

The Not A Single Doubt filly is a key Victorian hope in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, and comes into the race with solid form. A second on debut at Caulfield was followed by a win in the $250,000 Magic Millions Clockwise trophy at Ballarat in December.

Every Rose

Every Rose, the winner of the Group 3 Gimcrack Stakes at Randwick in October, has returned in fine style in the leadup to the Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Two second placings at Wyong and Eagle Farm have the filly primed to deliver a huge payday to connections at the Gold Coast.

Gotta Kiss

Another local filly, Gotta Kiss is trained by Steven O’Dea and has three career starts for two wins and a second placing. The filly has shown a genuine will to win early in her career and is a live chance for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

Dusty Tycoon

The Written Tycoon filly, trained by Robert Heathcote, is unbeaten over two career starts, the second of which was an impressive, cruising win at Doomben in late November. Was given a trial in the leadup to the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, which she won comfortably.

Lady Banff

Two consecutive wins to start her career had tongues wagging about the Matthew Dunn-trained filly – in particular a runaway performance at Doomben which saw her smash the opposition by four lengths. A narrow second at Eagle Farm to Gotta Kiss has her well placed for the Magic Millions.

Stellar Pauline

Peter and Paul Snowden have yet another one here in Stellar Pauline. The Not A Single Doubt filly ran a spirited second to Every Rose in the Group 2 Gimcrack Stakes at Randwick, before another second behind Aim in December.

Smart ’N’ Sexy

A local hope for Toby Edmonds, Smart ‘N’ Sexy only debuted at the track in late December, but a pair of second placings in strong company has seen the filly come into Magic Millions calculations. Will be keen to go one better after falling by the narrowest of margins last time out.


A Magic Millions raider from down south, Bribery is a Spirit Of Boom filly that won on debut at Morphettville in December, before putting in a spirited performance to finish third on the Gold Coast next up. Will back up quickly for the Magic Millions.

The Drinks Cart

Toby Edmonds will attempt to land another Magic Millions 2YO Classic entry with The Drink Cart, and the Unencumbered colt may not be totally out of place in the company after finishing third behind Wisdom Of Water and Conceited a warm-up race for the Magic Millions.

Cosmic Gossip

Fourth emergency for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, Cosmic Gossip is a Stuart Kendrick-trained filly with two placings from three career starts.


Fifth emergency for the Magic Million 2YO Classic – a Better Than Ready filly with one career start at her home track.
