January 12, 2017 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the Gold Coast Turf Club in Queensland, Australia will host the Magic Million Classic. The Magic Million Classic race is run under set weights and restricted to two year old thoroughbreds that were bought at a Magic Million sale auction.

The turf race will cover a total race distance of 1,200 meters. Set weights for colts and geldings are set 57 kg. while fillies get 55 kg. This race as attracted 21 eligible horses, only 16 will be on the final list while the rest will be emergencies.

Leading the race contingent is undefeated Houtzen but was allocated the outside barrier which would be a precarious spot to start the race and keep his unblemished record.

With Houtzen looking outside, there are plenty chances for other horses to grab the limelight in a fairly open race. Phelan Ready Stakes and BJ McLachlan Stakes winner Ours to Keep is considered as one of the leading contenders as well as From Within and Madeenaty.

The race handicappers have installed From Within as the race favorite to win the Magic Millions Classic on Saturday noon.
