Hoffenhorry Out to Make 2011 Wyong Magic Millions Classic Rivals Sorry

Rosehill-based horseman Gregory McFarlane is preparing to make a double-pronged assault on the Magic Millions Wyong 2YO Classic this Thursday with two unraced Haradasun colts, the best fancied of which is Hoffenhorry.

McFarlane will be represented in this year’s $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m) with Here Comes The Sun in gate seven and Hoffenhorry drawn ideally in barrier four of the now nine-horse field following the early scratching of #8 Shamrock Slipper.

A key lead-up race for gallopers heading towards January’s $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on the Gold Coast, the Wyong MM Classic is due to run as Wyong Race 4 at 3:10pm (NSW time).

Betting on the restricted race feature is currently dominated by Luxbet $3.80 co-favourites Little Critter and Hidden Warrior.

Hoffenhorry, however, is not far behind in the markets occupying the third line of betting at a quote of $5 with in-form hoop Chris Munce engaged for the ride.

There is plenty of hype surrounding the young colt’s debut after Hoffenhorry gave a sneak peak of their ability when thrashing their rivals by eight lengths in a recent Rosehill trial over 900 metres.

How they live up to the hype and whether they can repeat a similar performance under race conditions on Thursday will go a long way to determining whether connections press ahead to the Gold Coast on January 14.

Currently Hoffenhorry sits as a $26 chance in the futures Magic Millions 2012 Classic odds at Luxbet, a price that will be slashed should they get the better of their Wyong rivals on Thursday including $16 Gold Coast MM Classic chance Hidden Warrior.

McFarlane is hopeful that Hoffenhorry is a feature-race horse in the making and is eager to see how they step up on Thursday.

“On what he did in his trial I’m hoping Hoffenhorry is above average,” he said.

“But there have been plenty of two-year-olds who win their trial by 10 (lengths) and not put out on race day.”

Here Comes The Sun is paying $17 for the Wyong Classic after drawing barrier seven, while for the $2 million Classic next month they are a $151 Luxbet roughie.

Here Comes The Sun will be ridden by Kerrin McEvoy who resumes from his Railway Stakes suspension.

“Hoffenhorry has always been an early runner whereas Here Comes The Sun is more of a late two-year-old but he is doing enough to go around,” McFarley said.
