The Magic Millions 3yo Guineas is a Restricted Listed Race for three year olds conducted by the Gold Coast Turf Club at Gold Coast.

The Magic Millions 3yo Guineas was first run in this form in 2001 and was won by Paradiddle.

The Magic Millions 3yo Guineas is run over 1400m under Set Weights and Penalties conditions and is open to both genders. It was worth $2million in 2022.

Some winners have gone on to win G1s like Sweet Idea, Gold Edition and Pierata. However many placegetters have also succeeded later. Dash For Cash, Absolut Glam, Rock Kingdom, Driefontein and Single Gaze but a few.

Deiheros cost as little as $6500 at the Adelaide sales.

Flying Jess was 100-1 in winning in 2017.

Pierata would end up running in some of the top 3yo races to end the season and then run brilliantly as a 4yo. He'd win a Missile Stakes and Sydney Stakes at Randwick and placed in the VRC Sprint Classic before the All Aged was on the mantelpiece in the Autumn.

There was an unbelievable storyline prior to Alligator Blood's win in 2020. He was on his way to the track but his float was caught up in road delays following a tanker overturning on the way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Stewards' delayed the races by 40 minutes but he made it in time and was then far too good. However he lost the race after being subsequently disqualified.

Ryan Maloney was on him that day and then 12 months on he was on another short elect only for Isotope to clip heels at the 400m and stumble, losing her rider.

Notable winners of the Magic Millions 3yo Guineas include Ha Ha (2002), Gold Edition (2007), Sweet Idea (2014), Mahuta (2016) and Pierata (2018).

The 2022 Magic Millions 3yo Guineas was won by King Of Sparta from Me Me Lagarde and Socialist.
