Two year old filly Real Princess might have missed out on a cut of the major prizemoney when finishing eighth in the $2m Jeep Magic Millions 2yo Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast last Saturday, but she was still able to make her connections $325,000 better off.

Real Princess is raced by a group of twelve women, thus qualifying for the $500,000 Racing Women’s Bonus that the Magic Millions had on offer for the 2yo Classic.

The Racing Women’s Bonus is only for 2yo Classic runners that are owned wholly by women and the $500,000 bonus is distributed in finishing order of those specific horses.

The Liam Birchley trained Real Princess was the first of four female owned horses to cross the line in this year’s Magic Millions 2yo Classic, therefore picking up the first prize of $325,000 while fourteenth placed Falconic from the Gary Portelli stable received $100,000 for being the second placed female owned runner.

The other two runners to receive a portion of the Racing Women’s Bonus are the Mathew Dunn trained Saxon Rock who collected $50,000 for running fifteen and last placed Cellargirl picked up $25,000 for her connection.

Even though it ended up a good pay day for Real Princess’ owners, trainer Liam Birchley said that it still would have been nice to lead in the winner of the Magic Millions 2yo Classic after he had been in the placings on several occasions.

“Not bad but I would still like to win one,” Birchley told AAP.

Real Princess broke her maiden status back in October in a 1050m 2yo Plate at Doomben but was sent out as one of the outsiders of the field at $101 on her recent lacklustre form which included an eighth to Ours To Keep in the Group 3 $200,000 Lilivale Stud B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm on December 31.

Jockey Tye Angland settled Real Princess in the second half of the Magic Millions 2yo Classic field from barrier seven but the Real Saga filly never made any impression on the front markers and finished five and a quarter lengths behind all the way winner Houtzen.
