The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic final field realised $3.6 million at various yearling sales, and the 16 starters cost as much as $975,000 (Ghostwriter) and as little as $7,000 (Mishani Scandal).

None of the 2019 Gold Coast Yearling Sale’s 10 seven-figure graduates made it to The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic race in 2020. Ghostwriter, the only son of the late Heavenly Sound to compete in Australia, was the 11th most expensive thoroughbred at last year’s Gold Coast sale due to the popularity of his super sire, I Am Invincible.

Mishani Scandal, a half brother of Listed winner Mishani Hustler, went through the Gold Coast National Yearling Sale ring seven months after Ghostwriter fetched nearly 140 times more than him. Mishani Scandal broke his maiden at Toowoomba, whereas Ghostwriter won at Doomben.

The Star Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic is a $2 million contest at Restricted Listed level, and $1.16 million goes to the winner’s connections. Swift Witness from the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott stable with Brenton Advulla in the saddle is the event’s favourite, and he made $260,000 for his vendor when the hammer fell 12 months ago.
