Architect Gets 2013 Magic Millions Classic Opportunity

Queensland gelding Architect has shown in recent performances that he has the ability to compete in the 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m), the only problem was gaining a start.

But that opportunity came yesterday morning when he was elevated from his position as first emergency into the field following the scratching of Purrific.

The Bel Esprit gelding has not finished worse than fourth in five career starts and while he is yet to win, results such as a third-place finish in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes show he is ready to take on the Magic Millions field.

Trainer Lorraine Erhart admits Architect still has plenty to learn but is confident he is ready to compete against some of best juveniles in the country.

“He’s done very well. He’s very mature but like most two-year-olds he’s got a lot to learn,” Erhart said.

“The McLachlan was a very hard race and he acquitted himself there.”

The exciting youngster arrived at Erhart’s Eagle Farm stables on December 8 after being broken in and doing his early racing under Toowoomba trainer Deborah Handford.

Erhart is excited about the prospect of having a Magic Millions contender, describing it as a “pleasure” to train a horse who has shown above average ability.

“When you get to train horses like this, you get more on an even playing field.”

“It’s an absolute pleasure and it makes the job that much easier.”

Architect is a $21 in the Magic Millions Classic market, with Clarry Conners’ filly Assail the clear favourite at $2.60.

Next best is Clevadude ($4) with only Missy Longstocking ($8) and Real Surreal ($9) joining the top two under double figures.
