Real Surreal Wins 2013 Magic Millions Classic – Gold Coast Results

A seven-day back up was not enough to stop raw filly Real Surreal claiming top honours in the $2 million 2013 Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast today.

The Kelso Wood-trained youngster was coming off a 3 1/2 length win at Eagle Farm last weekend and weaved her way through the middle of the field to show why her trainer has such a high opinion of her.

As is commonplace in Queensland’s richest race, the hot field of juveniles flew out of the gates at a hot tempo which saw Real Surreal get a long way back early in proceedings.

But jockey Michael Cahill remained calm, giving her a patient ride and allowing her to show a brilliant turn of foot when the opening came in the straight to beat home Sweet Idea and Missy Longstocking.

Wood finished first across the line aboard Prince Regent 25 years ago as a jockey before being relegated to second on protest but indicated that today’s win made up for that disappointing day.

“It’s 25 years since I won and lost the last one but I’m not going to lose this one,” Wood said.

Wood admitted things didn’t go exactly to plan but was always confident the daughter of Real Saga had the ability to win the juvenile feature.

“I was a bit concerned when they straightened up. I was hoping we’d be coming down the outside but it wasn’t to be and he got a good passage through and put an end to it,” he said.

“She’s a great filly, she’s going to be a beautiful three-year-old.

“She’s always shown me plenty of ability.”

It was the first victory in the event for Cahill who described it as the race he has always desired to win.

“It’s terrific, she’s a very good filly. I was a bit further back than I wanted to be but they went very quick and fortunately I found the opening in the straight,” Cahill said.

“It’s the richest race in Queensland, it’s the race I’ve desired to win.”

“I’ve had a number of rides in it but in saying that this filly was probably my best chance and I was hopeful she’d run well. She certainly did that today.”
