Clevadude Arrives on Gold Coast for 2013 Magic Millions Classic Assault

2013 Magic Millions Classic fancy Clevadude has arrived safe and sound on the Gold Coast this morning ahead of his assault on the $2 million two-year-old race on Saturday.


Clevadude has arrived on the Gold Coast ahead of Saturday's Magic Millions Classic

Currently second favourite at $4, the exciting gelding flew into Brisbane before being floated to the Gold Coast without complication.

“He walked up the float this morning without a sweat mark on him,” trainer Rick Hore-Lacy told Sky Sports Radio.

“I was very pleased about the way he travelled. He was straight into his feed when we got him back to the stables.”

Clevadude has produced performances that make him one of the country’s most promising juveniles, winning the first two races of his career in dominant fashion in Melbourne.

Horses can struggle when racing in the clockwise direction for the most time but Hore-Lacy is confident he has done enough preparation with the exciting son of Bel Esprit.

“He’s done a lot of work the Sydney way, our outside sand, the horses two or three times a week go that way,” Hore-Lacy said.

“We gave him a strong gallop last Saturday on the inside grass track and it’s a tight little track, even tighter than the Gold Coast and he hugged the rail the whole way.”

While nobody can deny the Caulfield-based galloper’s form or obvious ability, there is one key factor that he will have to over come if he is to keep his unbeaten record alive on Saturday.

Barrier 18.

Hore-Lacy admits it is not ideal to draw wide but is trying to remain positive and still believes Clevadude is a strong winning chance.

“It’s disappointing, barriers are so important particularly on a little track like the Gold Coast but there’s nothing we can do about it, that’s racing,” Hore-Lacy said.
