We were very lucky at the end of last year to be involved in a project that is all about supporting women! The Magic Millions racing women’s bonus is all about recognising women in racing and racehorse ownership amongst women. Now in its eighth year, this incentive is promoting the important roles played by women in the thoroughbred racing and breeding industry. We were approached by the Magic Millions to design an iconic award that would represent the importance of the race.
These stunning trophies feature a mixture of electroplated metals in several types of finishes to create a beautifully unique 3D effect. The racehorse motif was designed around the main muscles a horse uses to gallop. These lines were also stylised to reflect the waves of the iconic Gold Coast beaches. The metals along with the cut out relief areas allow depth and movement in the piece.
The species of timber used in this piece grows native to the Gold Coast and also has a warm sandy tone to it. The timber has been laser etched which brings another tactile element to the award.
These elements combined create a sophisticated, 3D layered trophy, truly meant for a race winner.
