The Million Dollar Chase Maiden event was introduced in 2020 to add to what was already a star studded program on MDC Grand Final night.

Five heats of the event were conducted nine days earlier and on final night it was the Luke Adams' trained Zipping Moose who would take out the final.

Just a few months later he franked the form by winning the Group 1 National Derby.

At just 19 months old the son of Good Odds Harada and Book Of Luck, We Don't Share claimed the MDC Maiden Final and kicked off what would be a memorable night for trainer Jodie Lord.

Just 10 days earlier in the heats of the series, We Don't Share kicked off his career with a gallant second to Our Boy Duke, and that dog off the one box was justifiably installed an odds-on favourite for the final.

But showing tenacity beyond his years, We Don't Share ran down the leader Spring Polar to break his maiden in perfect style.

Just four months after winning with We Don't Share, connections of that dog were celebrating again on MDC grand final night when Canya Smoke Them scored an impressive win in the MDC Maiden Final.

Like We Don't Share, Canya Smoke Them is trained by the Lords and owned by Mark Duclos and after showing plenty of potential early, he finally produced in this series winning his heat and then giving nothing else a chance in the final, scoring in 29.67s.

In 2023, the Jason Magri-trained Zipping Megatron absolutely blew them away in the MDC Maiden final.

The son of Superior Panama out of Zipping Mitzy made no mistakes from Box 1, blasting to the front and running away with the prize in a brilliant 29.42. Ladbrokes Million Dollar Chase winner Jay Is Jay ran 29.76 to win the big one on the same night.

The win came a week after he fell out of the boxes and overcame a massive deficit just to qualify for the final.
