celebrated her second Group One victory earlier this year while riding Magic Millions graduate Single Gaze. “I am so proud to be appointed as an Ambassador for the 2017 Jeep Magic Millions Carnival. Katie Page-Harvey changed the way women were perceived in the racing industry when Magic Millions introduced Magic Millions Racing Women. I am an athlete and those who invest in yearlings are businesswomen. Make no mistake, we work hard and our aim is to win,” O’Hara added. Katie Page-Harvey established the Magic Millions Racing Women initiative in 2012, offering a $500,000 bonus to be shared amongst the first four eligible female-owned runners in the 2YO Classic on Magic Millions Raceday. Since then, registrations for 2YOs wholly owned by women have increased by 63 percent, with a record number received this year (165). Seven News presenter Amanda Abate attended the 2016 Jeep Magic Millions Raceday in her capacity with Seven. She goes one step further in 2017. Her role as Local Jeep Magic Millions Carnival Ambassador will see her act as a local spokesperson at all Carnival events.  “I am a proud Queenslander, so I love to see Magic Millions put the Gold Coast front and centre every New Year. I’m delighted to officially be part of the Carnival, and together with the Seven Broadcast team we look forward to bringing our viewers exclusive behind-the-scenes coverage of Carnival week,” Abate said. This year, the Carnival is launching the inaugural Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo on Sunday January 8, at the Gold Coast’s scenic Doug Jennings Park on The Spit with an all-star playing line-up. Magic Millions will host two exhibition games. The main game will feature Pacific Fair Magic Millions Polo Ambassadors and professional polo players Nic Roldan (US Polo Captain), Alejandro Novillo Astrada (Argentinian polo royalty), as well as Rob and Jack Archibald (AU). Magic Millions spokesperson Francesca Cumani is also scheduled to play.]]>
