Torio's Quest Wins Magic Millions Wyong 3YO Stakes
Triple European Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Oratorio (Danehill-Mahrah, by Vaguely Noble) added a feature success when gelded son Torio's Quest (Oratorio-Quest For Pleasure, Quest For Fame) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to yesterday's $100,000 Magic Millions Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs at Wyong. Torio's Quest (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Brett Partelle) scored by a nose from the colt Top Drop (Snitzel-Fine Red, by Red Ransom) with a further half-neck to the filly Biggietupac (Dubai Destination-Hip Hop, by Success Express). Torio's Quest (a $15,000 yearling consigned by Bowness Stud at the 2009 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) now has 3 wins from 4 starts for $115,150 earnings.
