Newitt Picks Up 2013 Magic Millions Classic Ride on Clevadude

The field and jockeys for the Magic Millions Classic 2013 on the Gold Coast next month are starting to take shape with ace Victorian rider Craig Newitt the latest hoop to book a ride in the summer’s richest race aboard the highly fancied Clevadude.

Rick Hore-Lacy’s promising Melbourne based juvenile is the current $11 second pick in the markets for the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) due to run at Queensland’s Gold Coast Racecourse on Saturday January 12, 2013.

The Bel Esprit gelding has had one run so far and caught the eye with an impressive three and a half length win at Cranbourne over 1000m having led all the way before running away from their rivals on the line.

For their debut Clevadude was ridden by Noel Callow but it is Newitt who has secured the prized mount on the up-and-comer for their Magic Millions bid.

Leading up to the Magic Millions Hore-Lacy will likely give the two-year-old one more start at Moonee Valley on December 29 which they will need to win to be assured of a Magic Millions start.

“He’d have to win at Moonee Valley to have any chance in the Magic Millions anyway let alone have enough prize money to get in to the race,” Hore-Lacy told Racing Victoria on Sunday.

“He’s not shin sore, he ate up everything this morning (Sunday) and at this stage it’s all systems go.”

Magic Millions odds are currently led by Chris Waller’s Street Sense filly Champagne Cath ($10) who also won her first career run by 3.5 lengths earlier this month while Gai Waterhouse’s NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes winner Whittington occupies the second line of betting at $11 with Clevadude.
