Phelan Ready Still Chasing Drought Breaker in 2013 Magic Millions Cup

With $3.6 million in prizemoney Phelan Ready has given connections far more financial reward than any of his 12 rivals in Saturday’s 2013 Magic Millions Cup (1400m).

Phelan ready will attempt to break a horror drought in the Magic Millions Cup

But from 35 starts he has only won two races, with the last of them coming way back in 2009 when he won the world’s richest two-year-old race, the Group 1 Golden Slipper.

He returns to the place that set up that Golden Slipper win this weekend, when he rewarded his owners for shelling out $150,000 at the 2008 Magic Millions Yearling Sale when he took top honours in the Magic Millions Classic.

It will be his second attempt at the Magic Millions Cup, having finished sixth in 2011 when he was held up in the straight.

Trainer Jason McLachlan has targeted the race all campaign for Phelan Ready and said he is not worried by a wide barrier 13 draw.

“I think he’s a great chance this time and I’m not concerned with his barrier,” McLachlan said.

The More Than Ready gelding has been in strong form his preparation, placing in all three starts including a short-head defeat to fellow Magic Millions Cup contender Startsmeup in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes.

McLachlan admits Saturday’s contest will not be easy but is confident his charge is peaking at the right time for the contest.

“It’s the race I’ve set him for this campaign and he’s doing everything right,” McLachlan said.

“He’s going great and has been carrying big weights and running very good sectionals.”

Among Phelan Ready’s rivals on Saturday are Doncaster Prelude winner Fast Clip, local hope Startsmeup, last-start winner Biggles and the in-form Steel Zip.

Markets are now available on a number of the Magic Millions feature races so head to to back a winner.
