Stakes Futures For Magic Fillies


Angels Beach as a yearlingAngels Beach looked a stakes filly of the future when she extended her unbeaten run at Sandown on Wednesday.

A half sister to former group winning Sydney galloper Patronyme, Angels Beach showed a blistering turn of the foot in the straight to reel in the leader and win by a widening length and a half margin.

A $220,000 Gold Coast Yearling Sale purchase from Kitchwin Hills, Angels Beach is by Bel Esprit and is unbeaten in two runs for champion Victorian trainer Peter Moody.

Melbourne based bloodstock agent Cameron Cooke purchased the filly at the Gold Coast on behalf of her owners, the Cowell family.

She created a big impression on debut when she thumped her rivals as an odds on favourite at Pakenham in December.

Moody has a good opinion of Angels Beach and predicted there were better things in store as she continued to mature into the future.

Also at Sandown another three-year-old filly with stakes race ambitions, the John Sadler trained Scarletini was impressive.

On the speed throughout, Scarletini led into the straight and kicked strongly to win by a length and three quarters.

A $55,000 graduate of Southern Cross Breeders, Scarletini is by Bernardini (ex Red Light by Red Ransom) and looked a bright staying prospect as she hit the line strongly in the 2400 metre contest.

The impressive wins around the country from Magic Millions graduates extended to Brisbane with Show Your Money and Lennie’s Choice both successful.

Show Your Money, a daughter of Show a Heart and the stakes winning Secret Savings mare Love and Money, couldn’t have been more impressive in breaking her maiden status for Steven O’Dea stable.

Despite being caught deep throughout and having the toughest run in the race, the chestnut four-year-old still raced away in the straight to win by two lengths.

A graduate of Jesmond Park, Show Your Money was purchased by connections for $55,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions QTIS Yearling Sale.

Lennie’s Choice couldn’t have been more impressive when he strolled to victory a little later in the afternoon in the Benchmark 75 Handicap over 1000 metres.

With Michael Cahill aboard the Kelly Schweida trained son of Hard Spun held a three and a half length margin over his rivals when the finish was reached.

A $20,000 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale purchase from Emerald Thoroughbreds, Lennie’s Choice is the first runner for the unraced Tabkir mare Evening Jester – a half sister to stakes winner Moment’s Best and stakes placed Very Dignified.
