Fundido’s Final Magic Millions Classic 2012 Trial

Premier Rosehill-based horseman Chris Waller is waiting to see how his 2012 Magic Millions Classic hopeful Fundido performs in a barrier trial at Rosehill this Friday before confirming their acceptance for Saturday week’s $2 million showdown at the Gold Coast.


Considered Waller’s best shot at scoring his maiden Magic Millions Classic win, Lonhro colt Fundido has had two career runs to date producing mixed results.

They hit the headlines and were spruiked as one of the juveniles to beat in early markets for the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) after winning their race debut at Rosehill over 1100 metres by an easy one and three quarter lengths back on December 3.

The first-up success came on the back of a blistering eight length barrier trial win in November that earned the young gun plenty of praise from top jockey Glyn Schofield.

In their highly-anticipated back up run, however, Fundido failed to come up with the goods again and could only manage to finish a disappointing three lengths away fifth to Peter Snowden’s Epaulette in the Australian Turf Club Handicap (1200m) at Rosehill’s Boxing Day meeting.

“There is no doubting that he was disappointing but I think there were a few excuses,” Waller said.

“He got bottled up in behind them and lost momentum and you can’t do that in very competitive two-year-old races.”

Waller is hoping they bounce back and show him they are still deserving of a shot at the Magic Millions Classic 2012, acceptances for which will be taken on Monday, when they trial at Rosehill tomorrow.

Fundido is engaged in the eighth hit-out of the morning, a 900 metre trial for two-year-old colts and geldings jumping at 9:25am (NSW time), and will be wearing winkers for the gallop.

“We were going to try him in blinkers but decided on the winkers and hopefully that will just help him switch on,” Waller explained.

It will be almost an all-Waller affair with three of Fundido’s stablemates also engaged.

In the latest Magic Millions 2012 Classic odds at Luxbet Fundido is rated a $17 chance.

Markets are now firmly led by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Driefontein, the two-from-two filly firming right into $3.50 to maintain her flawless career record on January 14.
