Some big performances over the weekend have resulted in a number of changes in the order of entry for next month’s 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast.
While Magic Millions Clockwise Classic winner I’m Too Sexy still heads the list with $122,000 in prizemoney, a number of juveniles rocketed into calculations after impressing at various venues on Saturday.
Queensland filly Missy Longstocking assured herself of a berth in the $2 million feature when taking her unbeaten record to three in the Calaway Gal Stakes at Eagle Farm and elevating herself to second in the order of entry.
While she wasn’t at full fitness, the Liam Birchely-trained filly did enough to hold on for a one-length win, leaving jockey Damian Browne with no doubts about her Magic Millions credentials.
“The Magic Millions is still a month away. She raced a bit fresh today but I thought she put the race beyond doubt at the 300 metres,” Browne said.
Also impressing at Eagle Farm was Toowoomba colt Sir Luminar who blew his rivals out of the water with a start-to-finish display in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes and now sits at fifth in the order of entry with $64,000 in prizemoney.
It was an oustanding debut performance from the Michael Nolan-trained youngster who disposed of his rivals by 1 1/2 lengths and left Queensland’s premier jockey Chris Munce excited about his future.
“He’s very exciting but he’ll make an even better three-year-old,” Munce said.
One of the other big movers from Saturday was Regimental Pride who occupies third place in the order of entry after scoring a tough win in the Rosehill Gardens Handicap.
It was the second win of the David Payne-trained colt’s career after he secured victory in just the second start of his career at Rosehill in October.
