Mundi Gully Wins Magic Millions Mackay Plate
European champion 4-time Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) added a juvenile feature success when favoured 2YO colt Mundi Gully (Shamardal-Jackie, by Last Tycoon) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in yesterday’s $100,000 Magic Millions 2YO Plate (1050m) at Mackay in north Queensland. Despite being trapped wide for much of the race, Mundi Gully (ridden by Dennis Whitmore for trainer Julie Green) defeated last start Magic Millions Toowoomba Trophy-winning filly Tough luck (Zaha-Gudwill, by Will Dancer) & gelding Rocket On By (Shovhog-English Summer, by Dodge). Mundi Gully (a $32,500 yearling consigned from Rothwell Park at January’s Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 2 wins & a runner-up from 3 starts for $86,200 earnings.
