Magic Millions double looms for Driefontein

Driefontein leads the first order of entries for the 2013 Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) on January 12.

The Gai Waterhouse trained filly has earned more than $1.45 million and is over $600,000 ahead of G1 winning colt Sizzling ($818,750).

Driefontein (3f Fastnet Rock – Follow Gold by Export Price) won the 2012 Magic Millions 2YO Classic on protest for a Star Thoroughbreds syndicate managed by Denise Martin.  The filly was a $75,000 buy at the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions.

Magic Millions 2YO Classic and Blue Diamond Stakes runner-up No Looking Back is third on the list with her earnings (less bonuses) of $572,000.

Others high up in the order of entry include black type fillies Snipzu ($385,400) and Hoss Amor ($375,350).  Queensland three-year-olds Saluter, Discreet, Platinum State, Avaladyluck and Holey Gadoley round out the top 10 just ahead of Saturday’s stakes winner Caliente (11th).
