2015 Magic Millions Classic Favourite Capitalist Wins Trial

Peter & Paul Snowden’s promising colt Capitalist further stamped his early authority on the Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2015 betting markets for next month’s feature at the Gold Coast with a Rosehill trial win in Sydney on Tuesday morning.

The two-year-old son of Written Tycoon won a Randwick trial back in September before an impressive victory on debut back at the track in early October earning black-type marks straight away in the Listed Breeders Plate (1000m).

He scored easily by three lengths over Detective as the odds-on favourite that run before being sent for a break to mature ahead of the lucrative $2 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) on January 9.

His impressive Breeders Plate win saw Capitalist be installed at the top of the all-in Magic Millions 2YO Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, the up-and-comer paying $3.50 to win the restricted feature.

Ahead of his return to the track connections put him in a Rosehill Gardens trial on Tuesday morning where he was the sole non-maiden in a nine-starter hit-out for two-year-old colts and geldings over 900m.

The boom young gun dominated the trial with an all too easy display, sitting behind the speed before moving closer at the top of the straight and then sweeping to take the lead inside the final 200m of the heat.

He won running away by a commanding four lengths in the perfect trial, beating to the line the Gerald Ryan-trained Who Said It’s Easy with his stablemate Tango Rain a further one and a quarter lengths back for third.

Capitalist won in a smart time of 53.2 seconds, the second fastest of the morning’s heats for the juveniles.

The quickest time posted was by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Snitzel filly Slumber Party who saluted over a fellow field of two-year-old fillies in 53.1 seconds after her third on debut behind Calliope in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) on October 3 at Randwick.

Team Snowden is looking at a first-up run for Capitalist, a $165,000 buy from this year’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale, in the $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m) on December 17.

That will lead into his Gold Coast run in the $2 million major ahead of a Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign targeting the richest race for two-year-olds in the world, the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 19 at Rosehill.

Futures Golden Slipper odds at bookmakers around the country have the John O’Shea-trained Astern as the narrow favourite ahead of Capitalist who occupies the second line of betting.

The Godolphin-raced favourite, Medaglia D’Oro colt Astern was also a winner on debut at Randwick when just last Saturday he and jockey James McDonald combined to beat home Niccolance by two and a half lengths over 1000m.

In Brisbane this weekend a host of other 2016 Magic Millions 2YO Classic-bound juveniles will race at Doomben Racecourse.

The fillies face off in the $100,000 Listed Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m) including the Tony Gollan-trained Myboycharlie filly Zelady’s Night Out who is the $7 second pick behind Capitalist for January’s classic after her four and a half-length Doomben win on November 14.

Then the colts and geldings run in the $100,000 Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1050m) where the shortest priced Magic Millions contender is the Liam Birchley-trained Punishing, the son of Not A Single Doubt last seen winning by three and a half lengths at Doomben over 1100m in late October.
