War­ren tar­get­ting more Magic up north with Bel Sonic

The Sportsman Midweek - - Warwick Farm Preview - MATHEW TOOGOOD

JA­SON War­ren has more Magic Mil­lions races in his sights with one of his sta­ble stars Bel Sonic.

Four-year- old Bel Sonic re­sumed from a spell with a lastto-first vic­tory in the $100,000 Magic Mil­lions three and fouryearold Clas­sic (1100m) at Bal­larat eight days ago War­ren has two other Magic Mil­lions races in mind for the tal­ented geld­ing the next six weeks.

The trainer said plan was to travel Bel Sonic north to run in the Wy­ong Magic Mil­lions three and four-yearold Stakes (1200m) on De­cem­ber 12 on a path to a $1 mil­lion race

the rich Magic Mil­lions day at Gold Coast a month later.

He said the fall­back op­tion, if there was rain, was to run at Flem­ing­ton over 1100m on De­cem­ber 15 in­stead of go­ing to Wy­ong, be­fore turn­ing at­ten­tion to the Gold Coast.

“He has come through the run at Bal­larat well and he’s go­ing well,” War­ren said.

“I think this is the best we’ve had him in a long time. The horse is thriv­ing.

“We’ll prob­a­bly go to the Gold Coast (af­ter his next start) and base our­selves there for Magic Mil­lions.

“There is a lead-up race at Doomben two weeks out and he may run in that as well.”

Bel Sonic is not the only horse War­ren has aim­ing to­wards Jan­uary’s Magic Mil­lions race day at the Gold Coast, with Miss Toorak Flyer’s win at Cran­bourne on Fri­day night con­firm­ing plans for her to head north.

War­ren said the mare would run in the $250,000 Magic Mil­lions Coun­try Cup (1200m).

The trainer is ex­pected to this week map out a path Fe­bru­ary’s Group 1 Blue Di­a­mond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield for two-year- old filly Brook­lyn Hus­tle who made a stun­ning de­but win at Moonee Val­ley on Satur­day.

Brook­lyn Hus­tle over­came a slow start to come from last for two-length win.
