Magic Millions 2YO Classic Nominations – Where It All Begins

The Magic Millions 2YO Classic nominations are first released on October 5, 2021. The next round is released on December 3, 2021.

With the race held in January, almost all of the two-year-olds entering the race are lightly raced with only a handful of starts at most.

Due to the rich prizemoney on offer, nominations for the race are in the hundreds which makes it hard to assess the key runners until much closer to the race date as new contenders emerge quickly.

Is There A Draw Bias in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic?

A case could be made for there being a draw bias in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic with most of the winners coming from inside barriers. Only a small handful have been successful from a wide gate in the race. This has changed in recent years though with Houtzen (barrier 16), Sunlight (12) and Away Game (12) winning from wide draws in 2017, 2018 and 2020 respectively.
