Shinn Back on 2018 Magic Millions Classic Favourite Bondi

Jockey Blake Shinn is now free to continue his association with Peter & Paul Snowden’s 2018 Magic Millions 2YO Classic favourite Bondi after winning an appeal against suspension on Tuesday.

Shinn faced the Racing NSW appeals board for a suspension that would originally have seen him unable to ride until December 22.

That would have meant he missed Thursday week’s December 21 Wyong meeting where the untapped Bondi has his next start.

He was given a reduction to his suspension however and is now free to ride again from Monday, with his next official book of rides taking place next Wednesday at Canterbury’s midweek meeting.

Snitzel colt Bondi has to date had just the one run when second behind Performer in Randwick’s Listed Breeders’ Plate (1000m) on September 30.

A subsequent trial at Wyong over 845m on December 4 has the up-and-coming two-year-old ready for a second start in the $200,000 Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1100m) and Shinn will now be in the saddle again.

Shinn was previously successful on the also Team Snowden-trained and Newgate-owned Capitalist when the Written Tycoon colt won the Magic Millions Classic double in Wyong and the Gold Coast in 2015-16.

The now-retired Capitalist also won the 2016 Golden Slipper Stakes with Shinn in the saddle.

The major summer racing target for Bondi this season is also likely to be the Restricted Listed $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast in Queensland on January 13.

Earlier in the month co-trainer Paul Snowden was yet to confirm whether or not Bondi would be part of the stable’s Magic Millions Classic contingent heading to the sunshine state.

A maiden victory at Wyong next week would all but assure the youngster a start in the race and see the futures Gold Coast Magic Millions Classic odds at on Bondi firm.

Current all-in Magic Millions Classic betting has Bondi installed as the equal $9 favourite with three more contenders that have been staking their claims on the lucrative feature.

The other top fancies are the Tony Gollan-trained Spirit Of Boom gelding Ef Troop who runs in Saturday’s Listed $100,000 Phelan Ready Stakes (1100m) at Doomben, another son of former champion Spirit Of Boom Jonker prepared by David Atkins in Newcastle and the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained unraced Star Witness filly Terminology.

Terminology may be yet to debut but she has won her two spring – summer trials including an impressive 10 and a quarter-length runaway victory over 900m at Rosehill on December 8.
