Each year in lead up to the Magic Millions race day on the Gold Coast a race for horses is run on the main beach in town.
The race is conducted during the Magic Millions barrier draw and it gains a lot of media and spectator attention.
It is one of the more unique races each year in Australia.

The beach is thoroughly cleaned after the event. This is just another way our beaches can attract crowds and must be looked after.
The Magic Millions day is the single richest day of racing on the Australian calendar with the main race the 2YO Classic worth $2,000,000. Which is up their with the richest races in Australia behind:
