The Magic Millions WA Racing Women’s Bonus means the all-female ownership groups of Orchilla, Pixie Chix and Success Play are guaranteed to pocket at least $5,000 if their galloper finishes the Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic.
Orchilla, Pixie Chix and Success Play are the only three Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic runners which are 100 per cent owned by women, so the Robyn Lockwood-, David Harrison- and Neville Parnham-trained juveniles will be contesting a valuable race within a valuable race at Pinjarra.
Established in 2020, the Magic Millions WA Racing Women’s Bonus is the brainchild of the auction house’s co-owner, Katie Page, who is passionate about not only promoting thoroughbred ownership among females but also increasing the number of women involved in the sport. The highest placed Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic finisher with an all-female ownership group will receive $60,000 plus a trophy, with $10,000 for the second highest and $5,000 for the third highest. The Magic Millions WA Racing Women’s Bonus is in addition to the Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic prize money, which totals $250,000, including $140,000 to the winner. Jim Taylor-prepared filly Surveillance, which was the 2020 Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic runner-up, collected $60,000 in the Magic Millions WA Racing Women’s Bonus as well as $37,500 in prize money for beating all bar hot favorite Gemma’s Son.
