Waterhouse Has Right Terminology for Magic Millions Classic 2018

Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott look to have uncovered a genuine contender for next month’s 2018 Magic Millions 2YO Classic on the Gold Coast with speedy filly Terminology doing plenty right ahead of her race debut.

A well-bred young daughter of Star Witness, Terminology had her second official trial at Rosehill on Friday morning and blitzed the field of fellow two-year-old fillies for an ultra-impressive victory.

Backing up from a November 21 winning hit-out over 807m at Warwick Farm, jockey Tim Clark continued his association on the up-and-comer for a runaway 10.3 length victory in Friday’s trial.

Terminology, a $300,000 yearling purchase, easily accounted for the Chris Waller-trained duo of In A While (2nd) and Task And Purpose (3rd) and set blistering time winning the 900m trial in a slick 52 seconds.

It was the mornings quickest 900m heat, the filly faster even than Bjorn Baker’s Group 1 winning sprinter Music Magnate who won his trial over the same distance earlier in 52.2 seconds.

“I think everyone had the idea that she was quite special, but you don’t see two-year-olds do what she did very often,” Waterhouse & Bott’s Racing Manager Emma Pearce told Racing Victoria.

“She was unbelievable and in Tim’s (Clark) words, ‘she’s a jet’.

“We’ve always had a high opinion of her and she’s a big filly so Gai wanted to give her the two trials but the improvement she has taken from her first to her second (trial) is really quite astonishing.”

The team has big summer racing ambitions with Terminology who is set to debut on December 21 in the Restricted Listed $200,000 Magic Millions Wyong 2YO Classic (1100m).

That will serve as an important lead-up for the filly’s major aim during her first prep, the lucrative $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 13 in Queensland.

The latest all-in Magic Millions Classic 2018 odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au have Bondi ($8) and Jonker ($9) as the shortest-priced of the juveniles targeting the race.

Peter & Paul Snowden are yet to confirm the early favourite Bondi for the race however, the Snitzel colt having run second on debut at Randwick on September 30 in the Listed Breeders’ Plate (1000m).

Jonker meanwhile is prepared by Newcastle trainer David Atkins, the Spirit Of Boom colt having impressed on debut at his home track on December 3 winning first-up over 900m by nearly three lengths.

As for Terminology, she has come into an $11 chance in the futures Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting markets for the Gold Coast showdown.
