The Big Easy Wins Magic Millions Waterford Plate
Queensland's Hazelwood Stud sire Dane Supreme (Danehill-Prawn Cocktail, by Artichoke) added a feature success when top-weighted 5YO gelding The Big Easy (Dane Supreme-Not Set, by Eagling) flew home in the final stages to grab a 1-length victory in yesterday's $100,000 Magic Millions Waterford Plate (1200m) at the Gold Coast. The Big Easy (ridden by Shane Scriven for trainer Barry Baldwin) defeated the 4YO geldings Scenic Rule (Commands-Vista Vincere, by Scenic) & Hear Ye (Legal Opinion-Spriggy, by Zoning). The Big Easy (a $25,000 yearling at the 2004 Magic Millions Sale) now has 7 wins & 8 placings from 41 starts for $162,950 earnings.
