Warwick Farm trainer Matt Smith will saddle up Frill Seeking at Wyong on Thursday with the hope of earning enough prizemoney to gain entry into the $2 million 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) which will take place at the Gold Coast next month.
A daughter of Sebring, Frill Seeking will be having just the second start of her career when she contests the 2012 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m).
The exciting filly is likely to need a top two finish in the $200,000 race in order to ensure she has enough prizemoney to gain a start in the main event at the Gold Coast.
She debuted at Warwick Farm on December 5 and after getting caught up in the straight, she showed promise to finish off the race strongly and claim third position.
Smith is of the belief Frill Seeking was unlucky not to have won the first-up test and sees a lot of potential in the youngster.
“She should have won the other day. She’s got plenty of ability,” he told AAP.
“She hasn’t had a thing go wrong and is doing things on her own ability.”
One tough rival Frill Seeking will have to overcome if she is to taste victory at Wyong on Thursday is Certitude from the Gai Waterhouse stable.
The Not A Single Doubt filly will start as favourite after putting trainers of two-year-olds on notice last month when scoring a five-length win on debut at Rosehill.
Others in the field include fellow first-up winners Assail and Calcatta as well as David Payne’s Saturday Rosehill winner Regimental Pride.
