She’s A Stalker Upsets Driefontein in Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes 2012

Angela Davies-trained filly She’s A Stalker has upset odds-on favourite Driefontein to claim the $100,000 2012 Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes (1200m) today.

Driefontein appeared to have shaken her well-publicised barrier concerns to jump cleanly but could not run down her less-fancied rival at the business end of the race.

With Corey Brown aboard, She’s A Stalker assumed a running position just outside the lead of Cheers Rihanna while Tommy Berry elected to sit just behind the speed with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Driefontein.

As the field rounded the home turn, both horses were given every chance but She’s A Stalker showed too much back-end speed, leaving the $1.12 favourite to settle with second place honours.

Davies purchased the Ferocity filly at the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions yearling sale and was clearly elated with the result.

“The first time I went to the Magic Millions I bought this horse,” Davies said.

While Davies was unsure whether her horse had the ability to defeat the highly-rated Driefontein, she was always confident she was in peak racing condition.

“I could not have been happier with my horse,” she said.

“I didn’t know whether I was good enough but I found out we were.”

Brown first rode for Davies as a 15-year-old apprentice and was thrilled to be in the saddle for one of the biggest wins of the Gosford trainer’s career.

“I was just rapt for Ange and the connections. They’re great people and they deserve a good horse,” Brown said.

“It’s just great to ride a winner for Ange but for her to get a good horse is even better.”

The experienced jockey also gave She’s A Stalker a glowing endorsement heading towards next month’s $1 million 2013 Magic Millions Guineas on the Gold Coast.

“She’s got a bit of improvement to come…she’s going to be very hard to hold out,” he said.

Markets are now available for the Magic Millions Classic and Magic Millions Guineas so head to bookmaker.com.au to back a winner.
