This Saturday as part of the prestigious Magic Millions Carnival at the Gold Coast Racecourse, a collection of the finest MM purchased three-year-olds will gather together to contest the second biggest race of the coveted Magic Millions Race Day, the $1million Queensland Racing Magic Millions 3YO Trophy (1400m).
Love Conquers All is just topping the betting markets at $5. Trained by Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes, the pre-post favourite has drawn ideally with barrier five and with the in-form Darren Beadman aboard will be hard to beat on Saturday. The Hawkes also train the current favourite for the $500 00 Magic Millions Cup, O?Lonhro.
Love Conquers All is followed closely by the David Pfieffer-trained Graceful Anna at $5.50, the Group 3 Vo Rouge Plate winner due to jump from gate ten. Meanwhile Group 2 QTC Sires Produce Stakes winner Shoot Out, trained by John Wallace, is also gaining support and has shortened to $6 after drawing well with barrier seven.
The next line in the betting is occupied by the controversial sprinter Deer Valley at $7.50 with Bart Cumming?s Latin News at $9. Meanwhile, Peter G Moody?s Doubtful Jack, currently an $18 chance, has secured the inside running with barrier one.
The MM Trophy is scheduled as race six on the sensational 10-race programme on Saturday and will be followed by the highly anticipated $2million BMW Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m).
