Wait a minute - it's Magic

Mar 15, 2010

 

Magic Symphony was working up so many seconds there was a chance she would turn into a minute.
 
But with four runner-up cheques in a row at the provincials, Bruce decided to give the Magic Albert-Morning Symphony filly a shot in town.
 
"Second prizemoney in town is better than second in the bush," he joked to the filly's many owners headed by Peter Orrica.
 
On Friday, she went to Eagle Farm fit, with a low weight, a desirable wet track and at 8-1.
 
The owners backed it, jockey Paul Hammersley timed her run to perfection between horses in the straight and it was another winner for the Hill yard.
 
The timing of the win couldn't have been any better.
Orrica sells Morning Symphony, with a Keep The Faith filly foal at foot, at the Inglis Melbourne sales this Friday - March 19.
 
"Magic Symphony is Morning Symphony's first city winner and it is good timing for anyone who buys her," Orrica said
 
"Bruce always said with the right conditions Magic Symphony could win in town and he was right.
 
"It is a credit to Bruce as this filly has been in work since August and keeps racing well."
 
Orrica plans to keep Magic Symphony for breeding if she can win another city race.
 
"She is my replacement for Morning Symphony."
 
Bruce added "She tries so hard, is a delight in the stable and the win was well deserved."
 
"I will be looking for a similar race in town probably on Wednesday week."
 
The win took Magic Symphony's record to 15 starts, three wins and six placings.
 
While all her wins have been over 1200m, the three-year-old has shown signs of getting more ground.
 
"I am open minded to that, she settles well and gives it her best shot," Bruce said.
 
Mountain Of Dreams finally broke its maiden status at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday.
 
Well supported and up on the pace throughout, Mountain Of Dreams. 
 
Well handled  by apprentice Ash Butler the gelding helpd of Melody In Motion and Rapid Flow over the 1100m.
 
His record now reads 15 starts, a win and six placings.
