Miracles Of Life “Definitely Running” in The Goodwood Field

After winning what was originally scheduled to be her career closer over the weekend, Miracles Of Life has been declared an almost certain starter for The Goodwood 2014 back at Morphettville this Saturday.

Trainer Daniel Clarken is thrilled with how his talented Not A Single Doubt filly Miracles Of Life has come through her big win in the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) from Saturday, and is eager to put her on the short back-up to see out her racing career this weekend.

“She’s pulled up great,” Clarken told The Advertiser on Sunday.

“We might put a saddle on her tomorrow [Monday] morning but at the moment she’s definitely running.”

Undefeated in her opening prep last year winning four straight by big margins including the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), three-year-old Miracles Of Life won her first race since in the Euclase.

Running up the middle of the track with Dean Yendall aboard for the first time, the local champ looked in trouble but fought on in a wonderful effort to draw clear and put one and three quarter lengths on Jazz Song to take her earnings to $957,570.

She is likely now to get the chance to add another $320,000 to that and go out a dual Group 1 winner in this this Saturday’s $500,000 The Goodwood (1200m).

Connections are set to sell Miracles Of Life as a broodmare prospect at the Gold Coast Magic Millions sales at the end of this month, and a second elite level on her record before she goes under the hammer will improve her price.

One of 31 nominations for Saturday’s Adelaide Racing Carnival feature, Miracles Of Life is expected to be paid up for when final acceptances close on Tuesday morning and Clarken is confident she can improve on her Euclase win.

“I reckon she’ll improve,” he told the Herald Sun.

“I’ve never asked her to do it because I’ve never had to, but I’ve got no doubt she will be better next week than she was on Saturday.”

If she does run she’ll jump one of the favourites in The Goodwood odds that are currently led by Andrew Noblet’s flying four-year-old Sistine Demon.

Reigning The Goodwood winner Platelet is also expected to accept for a title defense, as is her last start conqueror Driefontein for Gai Waterhouse with the two running the Robert Sangster Stakes quinella on April 26.

Essay Raider is also not without their admirers, the Bernardini four-year-old representing Andrew Gluyas and recent Hall Of Fame inductee Leon MacDonald.

Essay Raider ran fourth behind Driefontein in the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) two back at the track before their three length victory over Karacatis in the Group 3 DC McKay Stakes (1100m) two weekends back.

One horse that won’t be accepted for is the Robbie Griffiths-trained The Quarterback.

The Street Boss three-year-old failed to match Miracles Of Life in the Euclase and was well beaten finishing over five lengths away fifth despite starting one of the top fancies.

Also far from confirmed are Phillip Stokes’ duo Éclair Big Bang and Lucky Symbol who ran fourth and sixth in the Euclase Stakes respectively.

Savabeel three-year-old Éclair Big Bang was far from disgraced when three lengths off the winner after challenging but leaving their run too late, while Stokes believes Magnus gelding Lucky Symbol didn’t like the Slow (6) track.

“He just didn’t go a yard,” Stokes said.
