Adam Trinder’s Mystic Journey Towards the All-Star Mile

Adam Trinder’s Mystic Journey Towards the All-Star Mile

Mystic Journey claimed a slice of history at Flemington on Saturday by becoming only the fifth filly to win the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m).

Storming home to win by over two-lengths, Adam Trinder’s three-year-old claimed the $600,000 prize-pool in convincing fashion, but most importantly put forward a strong Wildcard claim for next fortnight’s All-Star Mile (1600m) at Flemington.

Mystic Journey, who was purchased for a mere $11,000 at the Tasmanian sales two years ago, was the deserving winner on Saturday. While the three-year-old helped put Tasmania on the map, it was also a huge ride for jockey Anthony Darmanin, who claimed his first-ever Group 1 win.

“She relaxed really good in the race and I was pretty much boxed even, she was a bit intimidated to go through the gap but once she burst through it, she just exploded away” Darmanin said.

Mystic Journey now sits as the $4.60 second-elect for the Mile, while Darmanin didn’t mix words when asked on her chances at the $5 million prize-pool.

“She’ll be winning it” Darmanin said.

Trinder was also confident in Mystic Journey’s chances if she earns a place in the race.

“We bought her and thought she’d be a cheap little filly that would go ahead and do her job for us, not in our wildest dreams did we think that job would be a Group 1” Trinder said.

“We’ll see what transpires in the next 48 hours, we’ll be hopeful that she pulls up alright and we trust she would, and that’ll give her an opportunity in that race.”

Second placegetter Hawkshot also ran a strong race leading from the barriers, and has since firmed into a $12.00 chance for the Mile. Ringerdingding also flashed home late but was unlucky not to run a place.
