Tumultuous Goes Back to Back in Magic Millions Trophy

Chris Waller trained Tumultuous claimed back-to-back wins in the Magic Millions Trophy (2200m) at the Gold Coast on Saturday, taking home the $1 million prize-money for the second straight year.

A cruisy run right along the fence from jockey Robbie Fradd saw the five-year-old by Fastnet Rock and Boisterous Lady win comfortably over $5.50 second-elect Goodfella. A speedy start from barrier 1 saw the pair establish the inside position early, only to explode over the final furlong to win by half a length.

While it looked as though Goodfella, who led from barrier to box, could easily see out the journey, Tumultuous hit the line strongly with plenty left in the tank. Looming along the inside, he was no match for Kerrin McEvoy or third place-getter Black on Gold.

The $4.20 favourite was re-saddled before entering the gates, but always looked like winning with Fradd on board. The 54-year-old won a double on Magic Millions day last year, and carried a handy 54.5kg weight into the Trophy.

“He was pumped for today, he was ready for today” Pradd told Sky Racing after the race.

“You could see he could started to kick nicely, beautiful run up the fence, gap was there, and had to take it.”

The win also marked a milestone for Waller, who now has five wins on Magic Millions day to his name, tying Team Hawkes and John Hawkes for the second most in history.

“To win a race, it makes people know that you’re out there and doing your job, so great to be a part of it” Waller said.
