Waterhouse Presents Certitude in 2012 Wyong Magic Millions Classic

Sydney’s Lady of Racing Gai Waterhouse is brimming with confidence heading into Thursday’s Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic where she will saddle-up her talented young filly Certitude.

The daughter of Not A Single Doubt, purchased for $80,000 from the 2011 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale, hasn’t put a foot wrong so far.

She trialled for the first time last month at Randwick and blitzed the 836m hitout winning by four lengths.

On debut it was another stellar effort with Certitude running away to thrash her rivals by five lengths in the Goldners Horse Transport 2YO Fillies Plate (1100m) at Rosehill on November 24.

She races for the first time since on Thursday in the $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m), the key lead-up for eligible juveniles heading towards the $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on January 12 next year.

The field for the Wyong Magic Millions Classic this year is down to 12 with the early scratching of the widely-drawn Calcatta, Certitude coming up trumps in the barrier draw with gate three.

Tommy Berry, aboard for her winning debut, retains the ride and Certitude has opened favourite in the Wyong Magic Millions Classic odds.

Waterhouse also rates her runner as the one to beat in the race as she continues towards the Gold Coast edition, the trainer having prepared last year’s Gold Coast MM Classic quinella with Driefontein defeating stablemate No Looking Back on protest.

“You dream of winning a Magic Millions and if we were to win it again, I would take some convincing it would actually happen,” owner of Star Thoroughbreds Denise Martin said.

“But Certitude has been precocious from day one and has a similar nature to Driefointein in that she is extremely relaxed, nothing fazes her, and she is like a mature, experienced racehorse around the stables.

“She handled her first race day outing particularly well. Tommy said when he pressed the button at the 250m she put a space on them.”

The fellow Star Thoroughbreds-owned Driefontein meanwhile also runs at Wyong on Thursday looking to add to her $1.4 million in career prize money with a win in the $100,000 Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes (1200m).
