Drizzle Wins Magic Millions Stayers Cup
The 6YO gelding Drizzle (Torrential-Vain Hope, by Vain) snatched victory in the final strides for the 2nd successive year when he prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to yesterday's $250,000 Magic Millions Stayers Cup (1800m) at the Gold Coast. Drizzle (ridden by Luke Nolen for trainer Gary Sherer) scored by a half-head from 4YO gelding Nellie Got There (Brahms-Nellie De Air, by Air De France) with a further half-neck to top-weighted & favoured 4YO gelding Showify (Show A Heart-Mary Something, by Danzero). Drizzle (a $23,000 yearling at the 2003 Magic Millions Sale) now has 6 wins (also including this race by a long-neck in 2007) & 21 placings from 45 starts for $436,705 prize-money.
