Magic Millions Calls 2016 Doveton Stakes Winner Husson Eagle

The 2017 Magic Millions Sprint is next on the agenda for Patrick Payne’s smart first-up flyer Husson Eagle who won the Doveton Stakes at Ladbrokes Park in fine fashion on Zipping Classic Day.

It was a real family affair for this springs edition of the $120,000 Listed OTI Racing Doveton Stakes (1000m), Melbourne Cup winning jockey Michelle Payne riding Husson Eagle to victory for her brother.

“He’s a beautiful little horse,” Payne said post-win.

“He gives you 120% every time he goes out there.

“I’m so wrapped to get the job done for Patrick and I’m really proud of this little horse.”

A $40,000 purchase, the now five-year-old Husson gelding took his career prize money up over $900,000 with his Black-Type win at Sandown.

He also continued his gun first-up record that, after the Doveton Stakes results, sits at three wins and a second from five resuming runs.

Posting his first factory since last Magic Millions Carnival at the Gold Coast back in January, Husson Eagle ($9.50) was given a lovely ride in Saturday’s handicap sprint by Payne.

The field was led by the likes of Jungle Eagle and Bullpit out wide on the course, while the Lindsay Park-trained Magnus mare Miss Promiscuity was also up on the pace early.

There were plenty of chances in the closing stages of the race including Miss Promiscuity ($7.50) up in front, but she was claimed late when Husson Eagle hit the lead 50m from the line holding his position to win by a length.

Miss Promiscuity was brave in defeat lasting for second from the front, while the Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained Rock ‘N’ Gold ($14) finished third.

Part-owner Joe O’Neill confirmed plans to head to the Gold Coast this January for a title defence with Husson Eagle in the $1 million Magic Millions Sprint (1100m).

“We’ll go to the Gold Coast for the million dollar race now during Magic Millions,” he said.

To back Husson Eagle during the 2017 Magic Millions Carnival this summer head to Ladbrokes.com.au – home to all the best racing odds and offers.
