Waller Unleashes 2018 Magic Millions Classic Contender Vitesse

Sydney’s Chris Waller is eying a Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2018 bid at the Gold Coast next month with his unraced filly Vitesse following her smart trial in Brisbane on Tuesday.

The two-year-old daughter of Snitzel, part-owned by Qatar Bloodstock, showed enormous early potential at Doomben in her 840m hit-out finishing a brave second behind the Kelly Schweida-trained local colt Speedgun.

Waller’s Queensland stable representative Paul Shailer was impressed with the heat performance by the filly purchases for $500,000 at January’s Magic Millions Yearling Sales and believes there is a big career ahead for Vitesse who overcame her greenness with a powerful final 50 metres.

“Vitesse has great ability but the filly doesn’t know how good she is,” he told the media.

“She showed good gate speed and could have led but Michael Cahill eased her out of the speed battle and then she got in behind them and looked a bit new.

“She worked home nicely under her own steam.

“Five strides after the post, she was ahead.”

The form of the trial was further franked by the fact third placed Foxwedge filly Pony Power, prepared by former three-time Magic Millions Classic winning jockey turned trainer Chris Munce, won her race debut on October 7 at the Gold Coast track.

Pony Power races again this weekend looking to retain her undefeated status with a win in Doomben’s Listed $100,000 Calaway Gal Stakes (1100m).

A host of potential juveniles eyeing a Gold Coast run on January 13 in the Restricted Listed $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) are engaged in the Doomben races on Saturday.

The fillies do battle in the Calaway Gal Stakes, which attracted a capacity field, while only five colts and geldings are engaged for the Listed $100,000 Phelan Ready Stakes (1100m).

Futures Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au currently list three horses as the equal $9 favourites including the Tony Gollan-trained Ef Troop who heads the Phelan Ready Stakes field on the weekend.

In-form jockey Matthew McGillivray rides the Spirit Of Boom gelding, a winner over 1050m at the track on debut in early November, from gate two in the diminutive field.

Waller’s untapped filly Vitesse meanwhile currently pays $34 in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic odds to hand her master trainer with his first win in the summer showdown.

She is down to have her second official public trial next Tuesday at Deagon on the outskirts of Brisbane before targeting either the Magic Millions Classic or being saved for the autumn’s Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) in Sydney.

“We will take her back to the trials at Deagon next week and I think you will see a lot of natural improvement there,” Shailer said.

Vitesse has a bit of work ahead if she is to secure enough prize money in time to make the 2018 Magic Millions Classic fields.

She could potentially have a lead-up run ahead of the feature either at the Gold Coast over 900m on December 23 or in the Group 3 $200,000 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben the following Saturday.
