No Magic Millions Classic 2015 for Giulietta

Sydney’s leading female trainer Gai Waterhouse has opted not to back-up her impressive debut winner from Rosehill last Saturday with Giulietta to miss this Saturday’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic on the Gold Coast.

The lucriative $1.64 million $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) was briefly considered for the promising Snitzel filly Giulietta after she flashed home to defeat I’m Not Sure by two and a half lengths in the $85,000 TAB Place Multi Plate (1100m) in Sydney.

Waterhouse however won’t risk running the youngster again on the seven day back-up interstate, instead waiting until the end of January for the $150,000 Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) back at Rosehill Gardens.

A trip to Melbourne for the prestigious $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield Racecourse on February 28 could also be on the cards for the up-and-comer.

“She won’t run in the Magic Millions,’’ Waterhouse confirmed to The Daily Telegraph on Sunday.

“We will wait until the end of the month and run her in the Widden Stakes before maybe taking her to Melbourne for the Blue Diamond.”

With Giulietta officially ruled out that opens up a position in the capacity 16-starter Magic Millions 2YO Classic field for previously borderline hopeful Racy.

The Exceed And Excel filly is prepared in Sydney by Gary Portelli and won her debut in the wet at Warwick Farm before a third behind the Gerald Ryan-trained Perignon last time out at Canterbury on December 27.

Perignon currently occupies the third line of Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting at paying $8, equal with Les Ross’s Magic Millions 2YO Plate winning filly at Toowoomba last start Frequendly.

Racy meanwhile is at $17, a nice price according to Portelli so long as she draws a gate.

“She has come on big-time since the Canterbury race,” he said.

“I really feel we have got the right horse for the Magic Millions.

“We know she can run out a strong 1200m and, if she can draw between three and eight, I think she is right in the race.

“She was very good at Canterbury as she was three wide throughout, did all the work and was only beaten a half-length.”

The markets are led by the David Hayes & Tom Daberning-trained Flemington winner Claudia Jean ($5.50) and Barry Mitchell’s Phelan Ready Stakes winning colt Wicked Intent ($6) who was defeated in an upset in the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Plate (1200m) at the Gold Coast last start.

The 2015 Magic Millions 2YO Classic field is due out today followed by the barrier draw from Surfer’s Paradise on Tuesday morning.
