Goffs Million

The Goffs Million races were flat horse races in Ireland open to two-year-old thoroughbreds. They were run at the Curragh, and they were scheduled to take place each year in September.

The races were funded by Goffs, a leading Irish bloodstock auctioneer. Each had prize money of around €1,000,000. They were reserved for horses catalogued as yearlings in the previous year's Goffs Million Sale.

The first running was in 2006, when the Goffs Million was a single race contested over 7 furlongs (1,408 metres).

The event was split into two separate divisions in 2007. The divisions initially comprised the Goffs Fillies Million for fillies, and the Goffs (C & G) Million for colts and geldings.

A new format was introduced in 2009, when the divisions were the Goffs Million Sprint (over 6 furlongs), and the Goffs Million Mile (over 8 furlongs). The races were discontinued in 2010.
