The races are funded by Goffs, a leading Irish bloodstock auctioneer, and each has a winner's prize of €1,000,000. They are reserved for horses which were catalogued as yearlings in the previous year's Goffs Million Sale.
The first running was in 2006, when the Goffs Million was a single event contested over 7 furlongs (1,408 metres). Since then it has been split into two separate divisions, both held on the same day, and initially this comprised the Goffs Fillies Million for fillies, and the Goffs (C & G) Million for colts and geldings. A new format was introduced in 2009, and the races are now divided as the Goffs Million Sprint (over 6 furlongs), and the Goffs Million Mile.
