Waterhouse celebrated her incredible fifth victory in the now $3 million feature and first in partnership with Adrian Bott as unbeaten Justify colt Storm Boy demolished his rivals in the lucrative two-year-old’s race by two and a half lengths.

“The thrill is unbelievable,” Waterhouse, who has gone 23 years with a runner in the race, told the media post-victory.

Two-from-two heading into the six-furlong classic, the bay saluted on debut at Rosehill on December 2 before his big 2.4 length Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) win at Eagle Farm three weeks later.

He franked that form on Magic Millions Day with jockey Adam Hyeronimus continuing associations and getting the job done off a gun ride.

After jumping midfield Storm Boy ($2.50F) worked his way into the race settling second on the outside of the front runner Mishani Ego before letting down on the straight and storming away.

There was a notable gap back to second with Michael Freedman’s lasts start Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner 31 days earlier Highness, quick out the gates before settling fourth getting a gun run in transit, next best over the line.

In third rounding out the Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic trifecta was the talented Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Trapeze Artist colt Spywire.

Storm Boy had every opportunity to get beaten but after going forward was simply too strong displaying a scintillating turn of speed over the late stages to add his name to the history books.

He now looks set for a big upcoming autumn carnival with the Group 1 $4.92 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 23 sure to be on the agenda.

Capitalist (2016) was the last juvenile to complete the Magic Millions 2YO Classic – Golden Slipper double.
