Goodwood Confirmed For Miracles Of Life
Trainer Daniel Clarken has confirmed that top sprinting filly Miracles Of Life (Not a Single Doubt-Dazzling Gazelle, by More Than Ready) will back up in Saturday's Gr1 Goodwood Handicap (1200m) at Morphettville after pleasing in a track gallop yesterday morning, reports racingnetwork.com.au. Miracles Of Life, winner of last Saturday's Gr2 Euclase Stakes, will be bidding to double her career Gr1 tally after winning the 2013 Blue Diamond as a juvenile. "She worked really well – all good – and we've accepted for the race this morning," Clarken said. "She needed to come through this morning's work well and she has done that with flying colours," he added. Clarken said he believes the Morphettville track will be no better than a slow 7 come Saturday, but the prospect of a rain-affected surface does not faze him. He says he always thought Miracles Of Life would be a superior wet-tracker. "Her action always said she'd handle wet tracks and her pedigree does too, so it's no surprise she swam through the wet stuff last week," Clarken explained. Miracles of Life is one of the many feature lots that will be offered as part of the exceptional Teeley Assets dispersal at the upcoming Magic Millions National Sale at the Gold Coast. Catalogued as Lot 706 she will go under the hammer on 28 May.
