Stroak will look to put her doubters in their place when she runs in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast this Saturday January 11, 2014.
A number of experts and commentators have suggested that Stroak will not be brilliant enough to win the 1,200 metre sprint.
Stroak has had three previous race starts during her short career and only narrowly missed out on the win on one occasion.
The two-year-old won her first two race starts before placing a close second to Unencumbered, who is currently the favourite to win the 2014 Magic Millions 2YO Classic at Ladbrokes.com.au, in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes on December 28.
Trainer Bryan Guy is confident that Stroak has every chance of winning this Saturday’s race.
“Everyone can have an opinion, but I can’t agree with them. I’m confident she can be in the finish on Saturday,” Guy said.
The trainer is hoping that a gear change to blinkers will make all the difference in the 2014 Magic Millions 2YO Classic.
“She has gone terrific in them in track work,” he said.
“Going into a big race you want everything to be well and to this stage it has been plain sailing.”
Following Stroak’s Magic Millions campaign, the filly may well continue on to the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 5, 2014.
“We will just wait and see how she goes. She is paid up for the Slipper but she also looks a nice horse for the Sires-J Atkins double in the winter,” Guy said.
