2011 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Nominations

Next month the action of the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day will light up the Gold Coast Racecourse on Saturday January 15 featuring an elite line-up of races including the $1 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m).

The 2011 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas has attracted 106 nominations, a host of classy Magic Millions-purchased three-year-olds heading towards the showdown.

An early favourite from the list of Magic Millions Guineas entries is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Squamosa, one of three nominees for Waterhouse.

The classy Not A Single Doubt colt placed a gallant second to Toorak toff in the Group 1 Golden Rose at Rosehill in the autumn and is yet to finish out of the money having won the other three of his career starts.

Waterhouse’s other entries are More Than Ready colt Brightexpectations and lovely grey Fastnet Rock filly Teardrop Rock, two genuine chances to cause an upset.

Golden Rose winner Toorak Toff is also entered for the Magic Millions Guineas next month, Rick Hore-Lacy’s impressive Show A Heart colt likely to start at the shortest odds.

Toorak Toff has won over $1 million in prize money over their glittering career that has produced five wins from 10 starts.

Most recently the brilliant colt placed second in the Guineas Prelude before finishing an eye-catching fourth in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

Another top pick to make the field is Torio’s Quest who took out the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes last start and will gain plenty of attention from the punters for the Gold Coast edition.

Last season’s Magic Millions 3YO Plate was won by the David Pfieffer-trained Graceful Anna and this season Warwick Farm-based trainer Pfieffer has nominated his General Nediym filly Gai’s Choice for the event.

Horses leading the local Queensland contingent in the 2011 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas entries include the Keslo Wood-trained General Nediym gelding Man From Oz, Gillian Heinrich’s Tale Of The Cat filly Catalan Miss, Barry Baldwin’s improving Commands filly Demanding Miss and the Tony Gollan-trained Spirit Of Boom.

The 2011 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas final field of acceptors will be released on Tuesday January 11, but the betting odds on the race will open much earlier.
