Magic Millions is Australasia’s leading thoroughbred auction house with its headquarters on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. Magic Millions holds the record for the highest grossing yearling sale in the Southern Hemisphere and conducts the third biggest breeding stock auction in the world.
Uniquely combining thoroughbred sales and racing, Magic Millions is world famous for The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions Carnival, Sale and Raceday held in January each year and set against the stunning backdrop of Queensland’s Gold Coast. Most recently Polo has become a showcase addition to the week long Carnival, which includes the world’s richest incentive based Raceday and world first Magic Millions Racing Women’s Incentive Bonus, of which Zara Tindall MBE is the long term patron.
Magic Millions conducts regular auctions at the Gold Coast as well as other locations in Australia including Adelaide, Launceston and Perth. The auction house is the number one source of black type winners in Australia – over the most recent racing season – including champion mare Winx, the winner of a world record 25 Group One races, and the world’s highest prizemoney earning racehorse of all time at AUD24 million (£13.5 million).
Magic Millions shared passion of all things equine and the unique qualities of the festival makes it a natural partnership with the Festival of British Eventing.

Her vision is to continue to increase the profile of women in the very industry that has been her passion for over 30 years. By providing incentives and resources to educate and encourage women to become more active in all aspects of the thoroughbred racing industry, the business executive is aiming for change.
The Magic Millions Racing Women’s incentive of $500,000 is distributed between the first four all-female owned or leased horses in finishing order in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic race. The bonus is in addition to the race prizemoney of $2 million.
