Hidden Warrior to Chase 2012 Magic Millions Classic Double

After impressing connections with a winning hitout at Broadmeadow on Tuesday, Paul Perry’s up-and-coming two-year-old Hidden Warrior will look to emulate Karuta Queen in winning the Wyong – Gold Coast Magic Millions Classic double in 2012.

Hidden Dragon gelding Hidden Warrior, prepared by Perry in Newcastle, was purchased for $105,000 at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale and looks a very promising prospect heading towards the Magic Millions-restricted features of the summer.

Having had just one start under race conditions to date, Hidden Warrior made their debut at Royal Randwick on October 1 running a narrow second when beaten a head by the Gai Waterhouse-trained fellow Magic Millions Classic-bound youngster Pierro in the Listed Thoroughbred Breeders Plate (1000m).

Showing they were ready to resume after a freshen-up, Hidden Dragon on Tuesday morning gave Perry and connections plenty to get excited about winning an 800 metre 2YO Maiden heat at Broadmeadow by a length over the unraced Scarrzam.

Perry has penciled in the $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1000m) on December 22 as Hidden Wonder’s next-up start before they progress onto their summer grand final, the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions Classic (1200m) run as part of the Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day 2012 on January 14.

“He has grown with his break and I have no doubt he will turn out to be very good,” Perry said.

“He will ready for Wyong and if he goes well there he will definitely go to the Gold Coast in January.”

It is the same two-race Magic Millions Classic double Neville Layt’s stable ace Karuta Queen won last summer before she bombed out when 10th to superstar colt Sepoy in the world’s richest juvenile’s race, the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill in April during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

The Wyong Magic Millions Classic, while a far cry from its $2 million Gold Coast equivalent, has been won by many later turf champions including Karuta Queen’s sire Not A Single Doubt back in 2003.

It has also been an excellent guide for punters going into the Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic over the years.

Not A Single Doubt went on to run second to Gai Waterhouse’s Dance Hero in the 2004 edition while other Wyong Magic Millions winners to place in the Gold Coast feature include She’s Meaner (second to Augusta Proud in 2008) and Snitzel (third to Bradburys Luck in 2005).

Races.com.au will continue to provide all the latest news and coverage on the upcoming 2012 Gold Coast Magic Millions Racing Carnival, nominations for the major races on the day including the 2YO Classic due to be taken Friday week, December 9.
