Caliente Likely 2013 Magic Millions Guineas Contender

Lightly-raced filly Caliente announced herself as a potential 2013 Magic Millions Guineas (1400m) contender after a stunning victory in the 2012 Listed Mode Plate (1200m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The emerging daughter of Sequalo was first-up and came from near last at the home turn to storm home to beat Sookie and Write Cheek by more than a length in sunny conditions at the premier Brisbane racetrack.

It was just the second victory of Caliente’s career from seven starts but she was highly consistent during a winter campaign in which she did not finish worse than fourth from five outings.

Hill remained cautious of committing to the Magic Millions three-year-old event but admitted it was definitely an option.

“I’ll see how she pulls up before I work out where she goes next but the Magic Millions Guineas is obviously one of her options,” Hill said.

“She’s nominated for the race and she’s probably got more than enough money to qualify.”

Jockey Paul Hammersley was not shy in declaring Caliente ready to shine in the Gold Coast’s glamour racing carnival.

“The Guineas is always a race with speed which will suit her,” Hammersley said.

Hammersley also said the extra distance on offer in the Magic Millions Guineas is likely to suit the promising filly and believes “she’ll eventually run a mile.”

Fellow Eagle Farm Saturday winner Heza Jetsetter is also headed towards the Magic Millions Guineas after scoring a half-length win in the DGL Handicap ahead of Allknight Saint and Mishani Stealth.

Trainer Robert Heathcote has always had a strong opinion of the Jet Spur gelding and this campaign he has justified that with three wins and a second from his four most recent starts.
