Flying Spur 2YO Wins Magic Millions Rockhampton Classic
Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a juvenile feature success when gelded son Spurtastic (Flying Spur-Brief Embrace, by Irgun) scored a 3-lengths victory in yesterday's $100,000 Magic Millions Rockhampton 2YO Classic (1200m) in North Queensland. Spurtastic (ridden by Jim Byrne for trainer Col Williamson) defeated favoured fellow gelding Aquatorial (Oratorio-Dolcetto, by Canny Lad) & another gelding Trump (Written Tycoon-Queenie, by Black Minnaloushe). Spurtastic (a $185,000 yearling consigned by Furlong Stud at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 2 wins & 1 placing from 5 starts for $77,500 earnings.
