2012 BJ McLachlan Stakes Nominations Feature Magic Millions Contenders

An exciting group of two-year-olds have been nominated for the Group 3 2012 BJ McLachlan Stakes at Doomben on Saturday which serves as a lead-up to the $2 million 2013 Magic Millions Classic.

Of the 18 horses entered, a number have already signalled their potential to compete in next month’s Gold Coast feature including Sydney filly Champagne Cath.

From the stable of leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller, the daughter of Street Sense scored an outstanding debut win at Rosehill on December 8 as she streaked clear to win by 3 1/2 lengths.

With January’s Magic Millions carnival rapidly approaching, a number of southern horses arrive in Queensland and another Sydney horse nominated is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Sweet Idea.

The Snitzel filly won on debut in the Sprint Plate in October and was only narrowly beaten when second in the Lidoran Group Plate at Rosehill last month.

Heading into the race on the back of a big debut win is Toowoomba colt Sir Luminar who led from start to finish to claim the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes at Eagle Farm last month.

Another of the top local horse entered is Missy Longstocking who will be looking to keep her perfect record alive when she chases a fourth consecutive win on Saturday.

The Liam Birchley-trained filly put big margins on her rivals in the first two starts of her career in October and November and was good enough to take out the Calway Gal Stakes on December despite not being at full fitness.

Also included in BJ McLachlan Stakes nominations are Gillian Heinrich’s dual stakes runner-up Purrific and Calaway Gal Stakes second Maracoola.

When markets open later this week on all the Brisbane summer Saturday action, the best place to back a winner will be bookmaker.com.au.

Not only does the Races.com.au preferred bookie have excellent odds across their wide range of markets, they also have a huge $400 bonus bet offer to customers who sign up quoting the code BONUSBET.
