Magic Millions 2YO Classic 2023 Results: Skirt The Law Strong Queensland Winner

It was a true Queensland victory in the rescheduled 2023 Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast on Queensland with Tony Gollan’s gun young filly Skirt The Law too strong for her rivals off a seven-week break.

After last Saturday’s Magic Millions Day was abandoned following the first two races due to the weather and unsafe racing conditions, it was 47 days between runs for the local Gollan-trained daughter of Better Than Ready.

“I was a bit edgy waiting a few more days and that gap between her last run getting bigger and all that jazz,” Gollan told Channel 7 after the win.

“But you’ve got to have faith in your horse.

“She’s done everything right all prep and have a look at her today, she’s won super.”

Skirt The Law became the first Magic Millions Classic winner to salute off such a lengthy let-up, and she did it in style putting a notable gap on the field of Sydney visitors.

“Geez she’s bloody good isn’t she!” Gollan said.

“She sprinted like a very good filly.”

Jockey Ryan Maloney had to waste to get down to the 55kg to partner the undefeated two-year-old, and his efforts were rewarded as she came away victorious in the $2 million feature.

The bonny bay was huge in her opening two career starts at Doomben last year winning over 1050m by 2.75 lengths on debut in November before a five-length romp home on December 3 over the 1200m in a two-years-old handicap.

Having been kept fit with a late December trial win at the Gold Coast, Skirt The Law franked the Brisbane form posting another emphatic victory over the six furlongs as a $7 pop through Ladbrokes.com.au.

Maloney had the filly settled fourth getting a lovely run up on the speed off a fast start as Royal Entrance led the field of 16 around.

Once on the straight he went to the centre of the track, working his way into the finish before hitting the button with 200m to go.

Skirt The Law quickly hit the lead inside the final furlong and raced away to defeat the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained stablemates, Gimcrack Stakes winning Zoustar filly Platinum Jubilee (2nd) and Golden Gift place-getter Summer Loving (3rd) who was huge coming from near last into third.

Connections paid just $170,000 for the Magic Millions 2YO Classic winning filly who now looks the emerging two-year-old to watch ahead of the bigger autumn races for the juveniles.

A trip to Sydney could now be on the cards for Skirt The Law who may be aimed at the Group 1 $5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 18th.

Capitalist (2016) was the last two-year-old to complete the Magic Millions 2YO Classic – Golden Slipper Stakes double.

All-in 2023 Golden Slipper Stakes odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au have Skirt The Law listed as a $15 shot and are available in full here.
