The Queensland summer carnival will again carry more than $15 million prize money and about $1.5 million in bonus opportunities.
Racing Queensland chief executive Brendan Parnell said the carnival was again set to take pride of place in the Australian summer.
“Last year was a great success and we are hoping to build on that,” he said.
The biggest day will be the $2 million Magic Millions Classic race day which will have a total of $10 million available on January 12 at the Gold Coast.
There will be $500,000 bonus payments for the Summer Two-Year-Old Series and Three-Year-Old Series and a sprinter bonus of $400,000.
There will be a $100,000 bonus for a horse that can win the Villiers Stakes at Randwick and the Bernborough Handicap at Doomben.
There will also be a $50,000 bonus for any horse that runs second, third or fourth in The Villiers and wins the Bernborough.
