The big week for the stable continued on Friday night with the visually impressive win by Miss Toorak Flyer. When you sign for one at the sales you merrily tick the box to nominate for the auction houses race series. In the case of Magic Millions it’s a lazy $4500 and so when you can you should try and target the race options it delivers. We identified this mare had the perfect profile for the $250,000 Country Cup race on the big day and her prep has been built to deliver her on the Gold Coast in January.
Our girl had been working with Bel Sonic who had saluted in one of the feature Magic Millions races last Saturday. She had in fact been working better than him so we approached this run with a deal of confidence . Clearly the market didn’t agree as she drifted to almost double her opening price by the time they jumped. I guess the concern was making ground with the rail out nine metres. As she was stone last turning for home the market makers looked to have assessed her chance spot on. What we know is she is blessed with a blistering turn of foot and Jake Noonan delivered the perfect ride home. In time she may tackle even loftier ambitions but for now a race on a feature day just suits us fine. Our friends at Rosemont who bred and part own her will have plenty on at the sales ring but will no doubt enjoy a runner on the Saturday afternoon .Pretty sure the fellow owners will also be packing the board shorts and heading for the coast.
Her purchase price of $40,000 is looking rather paltry as she took her prize money to $130,000 with this win.The way she has improved this time in this will not be the last time she adds to her total. Ideally its a rather tasty cheque and trophy the second Saturday in the New Year. The stable is united with self belief at present and the power of a positive force is starting to pay dividends .
