2014 Magic Millions Classic Target for Oakleigh Girl

A Melbourne Cup Day victory has Brisbane horseman Danny Bougoure excited over the Magic Millions Classic 2014 chances of his young filly Oakleigh Girl this coming summer.

Bougoure debuted his Snitzel juvenile at Flemington on November 5, Oakleigh Girl making an early name for herself with a one and a quarter length win.

On the back of a winning Cranbourne trial the Queensland-based two-year-old beat home Top Dolly in the Group 3 7News Stakes (1000m), Bougoure declaring her a chance for the Magic Millions Carnival in January.

The form of that race was further strengthened at Caulfield’s Zipping Classic Day meet this Saturday gone when Robbie Laing’s fourth placegetter Golconda, beaten three lengths by Oakleigh Girl, backed up to win the Listed Tribute Stakes (1000m) by an easy three lengths.

While his current attention is on Perth this Saturday where Longport will jump one of the top chances in the $1 million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot, Bougoure is also excited about what the future holds for Oakleigh Girl.

Her main summer target will be the lucrative $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) held at the Gold Coast on January 11, 2014.

Having had a week in the paddock after her Group 3 victory, Oakleigh Girl is back in work 11kg heavier than her race weight.

At this stage Bougoure will give her just the one run between now and the Magic Millions with the $150,000 Group 3 BJ McLachlan Plate (1200m) at Doomben on December 28 the most likely option.

After that the long term plan is to head to Sydney for a shot at the coveted $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on April 5.

“It’s not as if she needs the experience, because she does everything right and after the Magic Millions we can head to Sydney for the Slipper,” Bougoure told the Courier Mail.

“That race in Melbourne (on Cup Day) pretty much qualifies her, so we don’t have to worry about that now.”
