Words Of Magic Wins Falvelon Quality
Veteran 9YO gelding Words Of Magic (Magic Ring-Love Of Words, by Esperanto) gained the judge's verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed Falvelon Quality (1200m) at Doomben in Brisbane. Words Of Magic (ridden by Matthew Bennett for trainer Brett Dodson) scored by a short-neck from 7YO gelding Mitanni (Danewin-And A Hug, by Ivor Prince) with a further nose to 5YO mare Love And Money (Secret Savings-Cherished, by Citidancer). Words Of Magic (a $16,000 yearling at the 1999 Magic Millions Tamworth Sale) now has 13 wins & 15 placings (including runner-up in 2006's Listed Ramornie Handicap over 1200m at Grafton) from 40 starts for $468,790 earnings.
