Local Startsmeup Out for 2013 Magic Millions Cup Glory

Gold Coast local Startsmeup will be chasing glory on his home turf in January’s $400,000 2013 Magic Millions Cup (1400m) and will head there in good form after winning the Group 3 2012 George Moore Stakes at Eagle Farm on Saturday.


Startsmeup will be out to go one better in January's Magic Millions Cup after finishing second last year

The five-year-old just managed to edge out former Golden Slipper winner Phelan Ready to claim the George Moore and will be a tough proposition if he can reproduce that form in the Gold Coast feature.

Startsmeup gets the chance to go one better than last year where he finished a half-length second to Tony Gollan’s quality sprinter Spirit Of Boom.

A son of Danzero, the Gillian Heinrich-trained galloper had an impressive winter campaign which included three wins and a minor placing from five starts.

Startsmeup will remain with Heinrich after the owners changed their mind about a training transfer following Saturday’s victory.

Heinrich admitted to great relief at the decision and is excited about again taking him to the Magic Millions Cup.

“I’ve developed a real affection for him,” Heinrich told The Courier Mail.

“It would have been terribly difficult to watch him run around in the Magic Millions for someone else.”

Phelan Ready is also likely to contest the Magic Millions Cup where he will get a chance to turn the tables on Startsmeup and record his first win since April 2009.

The Sunshine Coast-based gelding won the Magic Millions Classic-Golden Slipper double as a two-year-old but has been unable to pass the post in front since.

He has come close on a number of occasions, recording 11 minor placings, and even finished fourth in this year’s Group 1 Newmarket Handicap.

As a result of his wins as a juvenile Phelan Ready boasts a huge prize pool of more than $3.6 million.
