Driefontein Firms in Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2013 Odds

Gai Waterhouse’s classy filly Driefontein is the notable market mover for the 2013 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas at the Gold Coast Racecourse this weekend after she came up trumps with barrier three for the million dollar feature.


Driefontein is the big market mover in the 2013 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas odds for Saturday

The daughter of Fastnet Rock enjoyed a big win on Magic Millions Day 12 months ago taking out the $2 million 2YO Classic on protest and is now well fancied to be back in the Magic Millions winners’ stall on Saturday.

Defeated first-up by She’s A Stalker in a shock loss as the odds-on favourite in the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO Stakes in Sydney, Driefontein was originally the second pick in the markets for the $1 million Gold Coast Magic Millions Guineas (1400m).

After the early favourite Sizzling drew disastrously wide with barrier 20 (of 21 including five emergencies) however the punters have started to come for Waterhouse’s filly who is now the $4.50 co-favourite with Kelso Wood’s Group 1 winning colt in the Magic Millions Guineas odds.

Driefontein will again be ridden by Tommy Berry at the Gold Coast as she looks to secure her first race win since the Listed Widden Stakes (1100m) at Warwick Farm back in February last year.

Following the top two fancies there are just three other three-year-olds at single figure odds in the Magic Millions Guineas betting markets with:

  • #10 No Looking Back ($8) – Rob Heathcote-trained Jet Spur gelding won three from four during the spring – summer before their good third to MM Guineas rivals Lucky Hussler and Sizzling in the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1350m)
  • #2 Lucky Hussler ($9) – Local Husson colt has won three of their past four starts including their tight victory over Sizzling in the Vo Rogue last time out, drawn wide here however with gate 17 with work to do as they see the 1400m for the first time

Other notable hopefuls at more generous prices that could prove the value bet of Magic Millions Race Day 2013 then include Wyong Magic Millions Stakes winner She’s A Stalker ($11) who gets the inside run from barrier one, Sunshine Coast galloper Saluter ($13) who was third to Sizzling in the Gold Edition Plate last month, and Grahame Begg’s impressive last start Sydney winner Bennetta who is at a short $13 despite being the fifth emergency and highly unlikely to gain a start.
