Gai Waterhouse has claimed the most Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic titles since the inception of the race in 2003.
With two entries among the 16 nominations for this year’s feature, the now Waterhouse/Bott stable will be hoping to make it back to back wins following Unite And Conquer’s victory last year.
The stable has nominated last start Canberra winner Farnan and Vancouver filly, Found Our Thrill, who was fourth on debut at Kembla last month.
Mark Newnham’s filly Every Rose looks the standout, resuming from her dominant win in the Gimcrack Stakes, with an impressive five length barrier trial win at Randwick on November 26.
The Maher/Eustace stable has six two-year-olds nominated including last start Morphetville winner Unstoppable.
Chris Munce, who won several Wyong feature races as a jockey, has nominated Kavak, a $145,000 yearling purchase. The colt is an Eagle Farm winner and was runner up on the Gold Coast in late November.
The Newnham stable could also hold the key to the $100,000 Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO Stakes with exciting three-year-old Diamond Thunder.
The Dawn Approach gelding has put together an impressive resume with four wins, including two Listed races, and a placing from six starts.
Australian Bloodstock’s Think Free, from the Lees stable, is among the 21 nominations, the So You Think mare having won five of her ten starts, with two placings.
Acceptances for Thursday’s meeting close at 9am on Tuesday.
