Mfuwe Wins Magic Millions Trophy
Ill-fated Oaklands Stud stallion Lion Hunter (Danehill-Pure Of Heart, by Godswalk) added a juvenile feature success when front-running gelded son Mfuwe (Lion Hunter-My Millennium, by Success Express) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the $100,000 Magic Millions Trophy (1200m) for 2YOs at the Gold Coast in Queensland. Mfuwe (ridden by Terry Treichel for trainer Helen Page) defeated fast-finishing filly Chilli Magic (Magic Albert-Santiago Babe, by Spectacular Spy) & favoured fellow filly Future Impact (Brahms-Future World, by Gulch). Mfuwe (a $100,000 yearling at the 2006 Magic Millions Sale) now has 2 wins from 2 starts for $87,800 earnings. Meanwhile Oaklands will be selling Mfuwe's dam My Millennium (in-foal to Lion Hunter's Group-winning son Ferocity) at June's Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale.
