Danny Bougoure’s Magic Millions Classic hope Oakleigh Girl will look to retain her undefeated status ahead of next month’s feature when she runs second up in the 2013 Calaway Gal Stakes on Saturday.
The Snitzel filly is one of the headline acceptors for this year’s $100,000 Listed Channel Seven Calaway Gal Stakes (1010m), the three-year-old fillies’ black type to run at Doomben.
The race drew a full field of 14 starters plus two emergencies, the first of which Ambitious Dragon has already gained a start following the early scratching of Ramblin’ Daisy.
Oakleigh Girl will wear the number one saddlecloth and has come up trumps with barrier three, Michael Cahill to ride.
Cahill replaces Craig Newitt who was aboard the up-and-comer for her win on debut at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day.
That run six weeks ago saw her put one and a quarter lengths on Top Dolly to win the Group 3 7 News Stakes (1000m).
Now she vies for another win as she heads toward the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 11.
Ten of her rivals on Saturday have also had a previous career start, including four other winners.
One of those is drawn one on her outside with the Kelly Schweida-trained Totally Sure in gate four coming off a win over 1100m here from October 19.
Vo Treasure (barrier eight) meanwhile is looking for their third on the trot after winning their opening two career starts.
Rounding out the other previous winners are then the Matthew Dunn-trained Freezethemillions out in gate 11 and All The Angels, a winner at the Gold Coast two back over 900m, with the rails run from barrier one.
Also in the mix are the likes of Kelso Wood’s Startum filly Elitist, Tycoon Ruler filly La Tenza from Oakey and the Rex Lipp-trained Star Drop.
