McGillivray rides again

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT RACING -

MAGIC Mil­lions vil­lain Matt McGillivray is set to make his re­turn from a month-long sus­pen­sion with a solid book of rides to­mor­row.

McGillivray was sent out for his con­tro­ver­sial ride on Ef Troop in the Magic Mil­lions 2YO Clas­sic at the Gold Coast on Jan­uary 13. Stew­ards found McGillivray caused se­vere in­ter­fer­ence to sev­eral run­ners on the first turn.

At the time McGillivray was in ca­reer-best form hav­ing rid­den 61½ win­ners, in­clud­ing 36 metropoli­tan vic­to­ries for the sea­son.

He has four rides at Ip­swich to­mor­row in­clud­ing promis­ing first starter Boom­sara for trainer Chris Munce.

Boom­sara is yet an­other young­ster by first sea­son sire Spirit Of Boom and is raced by a Eureka Stud syn­di­cate.

McGillivray will ride Never In Doubt and Er­colano for Ef Troop’s trainer Tony Gol­lan, and Pe­ter and Will Hul­bert’s promis­ing Ex­cel­e­bra­zoine.
