Magic Millions at Ascot Racecourse
Magic Millions is Australia’s premier thoroughbred auction house and perhaps the leading source of champions and high class performing racehorses. There are sales venues located at the Gold Coast, Adelaide, Perth and Launceston, and more than 6000 horses pass through the Magic Millions auction ring at 25 different sales a year, including yearlings, breeding stock and ready-to-run racehorses. In conjunction with the major Yearling Sales, Magic Millions also hosts a series of Carnivals and Race days. Complementing the Magic Millions Yearling Sale Series, the Magic Millions Race day presents two magnificent races across an eight race card at Ascot Racecourse in mid-February each year. These races are the Magic Millions Perth 2YO Classic, worth $250,000 and Magic Millions Perth 3YO Trophy, with prize-money of $100,000.
