Trainer Sam Kavanagh has revealed that he plans to take promising filly I Am Zelady to the Gold Coast for the 2015 Magic Millions Guineas on January 10.
I Am Zelady made her racing debut with an impressive three lengths victory in the Cronulla RSL Club Handicap (1250m) at Canterbury on October 24 and was far from disgraced when second across the line behind the well-bred Snow White in the Cellarbrations Blacktown Handicap (1300m) at Rosehill Gardens on November 15.
Kavanagh told TVN that I Am Zelady will return to racing at Royal Randwick on December before making the trip to the Gold Coast for the $1 Magic Millions Guineas on the second weekend of 2015.
“I Am Zelady has had a bit of a freshen-up and she will run over 1100 metres on Villiers Day before heading to the Gold Coast for the Magic Millions Guineas,” Kavanagh said.
Invincible Dame may not have been seen at the races, but Kavanagh is also eyeing the riches available at the Magic Millions with the I Am Invincible filly.
The two-year-old made her first public appearance when she finished second under a heavy hold behind Ready Already in a barrier trial over 734 metres at Royal Randwick on November 17 and she stamped herself as a genuine Magic Millions Classic hopeful by scoring an impressive two lengths victory in a barrier trial over 896 metres at Rosehill Gardens on November 25.
Kavanagh said that Invincible Dame will make her racing debut in the Wyong Magic Millions Two-Year-Old Classic on December 18, which was won by subsequent Magic Millions Classic winner Unencumbered, before making the trip to Queensland for the Magic Millions Classic.
“As with all two-year-olds she needs to take her trial form to the races, but she will debut in the Wyong Magic Millions,” Kavanagh said.
“All being well, she can then go on to the Magic Millions Classic on the Gold Coast.”
Invincible Dame was so impressive in her barrier trial that she is on the second line of 2015 Magic Millions Classic betting markets at a quote of $8 along with Ready Already and Of The Brave.
Gai Waterhouse has an excellent record at the Magic Millions Meeting on the Gold Coast and she is set to have Carriages in the 2015 edition of the Magic Millions Classic after she stamped herself as favourite for the race with an impressive win in the Magic Millions Clockwise Classic (1000m) at Ballarat on November 22.
