Singleton Seeks Group Status For Magic Millions Races
And Magic Millions principal John Singleton told The Daily Telegraph he's "just about given up on his campaign to have the Magic Millions races elevated to Group race status" but declared: "The Magic Millions (2YO Classic) ought to be a Gr1 but the faceless men on the Pattern Committee don't agree. They say it is restricted to Magic Millions horses only. But look at the big Hong Kong races this weekend, the US Breeders Cup series, the Dubai World Cup - they are all by invitation, so they are restricted. We have got a $2 million race that is a Listed restricted - good heavens!"
