Gemma’s Son confirmed his status as Western Australia’s Best Juvenile by extending his unbeaten career in today’s A$250,000 Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic at Pinjarra.
At the post-Gemma’s Son had an almost two-length margin over runner-up Surveillance, while Watch Me Dance was a further length back in third place.
The win was the fourth for trainer David Harrison in the prestigious 2YO feature he now shares the training record for the Classic with Trevor Andrews.
The connections of runner-up Surveillance scooped the major portion of the inaugural Magic Millions WA Racing Women’s Bonus – collecting $60,000 on top of the $37,500 prizemoney cheque.
Never before had connections of a runner-up in a WA race enjoyed such a celebration and made as much noise as most of the 28 part owners screamed their approval as runners flashed past the post.
Long-range plans for the quality youngster came off when at his first start as a three-year-old he raced against his usual pattern and held out the promising Tommy Blue by a long neck.
A son of My Admiration, Cryptic Wonder is one of two multiple metropolitan winners from two to race for the twice raced Bletchley Park mare Abitcryptic.
Abitcryptic’s latest yearling, a filly by exciting freshman sire, and former Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic winner Lucky Street is catalogued as Lot 144 at the upcoming 2020 Perth Yearling Sale for Western Breeders Alliance.
