Ichihara wins 2012 Magic Night Stakes

Exciting filly Ichihara has set the scene for what should be a bumper day of racing at Rosehill by taking out the 2012 Magic Night Stakes by a bob of the head over Cavalry Rose.

It continues an unbeaten run for the Allan Denham-trained filly whose owners now have a tough decision on whether or not to enter her in next weekend’s prized Golden Slipper event.

Ichihara came out of the gates hard and was happy to sit near the lead for the entire 1200 metres of the $175,000 Group 2 race.

As they came into the final bend, the talented filly had a two-length lead and managed to hold on to the margin until the final 100 metres.

It was at that stage when the field started to close and Cavalry Rose accelerated impressively but was just beaten at the post by the Corey Brown-ridden Ichihara.

Owner George Altomonte was pleased after the race but remained coy on whether or not she will contest the glamour two-year-old event.

“Very happy, three out of three [wins]…she’s a nice filly,” Altomonte said.

“I don’t know [about the slipper], I’ll have to have a talk to Allan [Denham] and see what he says.”

Jockey Corey Brown was racing on Ichihara for the first time and said he was impressed the with the heart shown by the young horse.

“I jumped her out here Tuesday morning and her work was really, really good,” he said.

“She probably got left there way too early to be beaten but she stuck there at the right time.”

Gerald Ryan-trained horse Flying Snitzel ran third behind Cavalry Rose while race-favourite She’s A Fox and the heavily-backed Kyria never looked in contention.
