|The race for a
berth in the $400,000 Adelaide Magic Millions 2YO Classic will strike another level when
the $40,200 Feltex Queen Adelaide Stakes in held at Cheltenham Park tomorrow.
Seven of the field - We Will Rock You, Orrong, Flawed Logic, Red
Labelle, Rachael's Pride, Halo Amore and Madutina - are all eligible to run in the Classic
While Flawed Logic, Red Labelle and We Will Rock You have
virtually booked their places, connections of the other four runners will be hoping to
earn prizemoney in tomorrow's listed event.
Madutina, who failed on debut in the Dequetteville Stakes
last year, is an interesting runner having bolted in with a recent 1100 metre barrier
trial at Cheltenham. The well bred Made of Gold filly is one of two runners for Murray
Bridge based Mick Huxtable. Halo Amore, the other Huxtable runner, is like Madutina
looking for a stakes boost in a quest for the Magic Millions.
Orrong, who ran fourth in the Fulham Park Plate on debut
for Dan O'Sullivan, and Rachael's Pride, who placed in the Dequetteville Stakes for Joe
Hall, make up the seven Millions acceptors.
Meanwhile, interest will also be high in both Victoria and
New South Wales over the weekend with three potential runners set to start.
The Lee Freedman trained Trojan Warrior will be having his
first run at Sandown on Saturday while the Graeme Rogerson trained Punnets Lane and the
Gai Waterhouse runner Pine Ridge are both set to start at Hawkesbury on Sunday.
