Lind­say Park filly set to go Boom at Wy­ong

The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - MATHEW TOOGOOD

THE Lind­say Park team will use next month’s Wy­ong Magic Mil­lions 2YO Clas­sic as the step­ping stone to the rich Gold Coast race for tal­ented filly Cham­pagne Boom.

Boom won the Debu­tant Stakes at Caulfield last month be­fore fin­ish­ing a close third in driv­ing rain in Group 3 race on the un­der­card to the Mel­bourne Cup at Flem­ing­ton on Novem­ber 6.

Se­nior Lind­say Park trainer David Hayes con­firmed the Wy­ong Magic Mil­lions on De­cem­ber 12 was the planned next step for Cham­pagne Boom ahead of the $2 mil­lion Magic Mil­lions Clas­sic (1200m) at the Gold Coast the fol­low­ing month.

The sta­ble won 1100m race at Wy­ong with an­other filly, Madeenaty, two years ago be­fore she fin­ished third in the Gold Coast fea­ture won by Houtzen.

“She will go to Wy­ong and then come back home for a while, then just hope­fully fly up for the race at the Gold Coast,” Hayes said.

“She won like a good horse on de­but and then if it was 50 yards fur­ther she would have won again. She still ran well.”

Cham­pagne Boom is one of the main con­tenders from Lind­say Park for the Gold Coast Magic Mil­lions Clas­sic.

“She should be our num­ber one and prob­a­bly Se­brakate, who has had two wins and a sec­ond,” Hayes said.

“We’ve got one go­ing into the Bal­larat Clock­wise Clas­sic next week, An­ces­try.

“He tri­alled well there at Bal­larat the other day. So he will be on trial for a trip.”

Se­brakate won twice in Ade­laide last month be­fore fin­ish­ing sec­ond in a race at Rosehill last week­end, while An­ces­try fin­ished fifth the Debu­tant Stakes.

The Magic Mil­lions Bal­larat two-year- old Clock­wise Clas­sic (1000m) is part of Sat­ur­day’s Bal­larat Cup pro­gram.
