Egyptian Symbol Wins Wyong Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO
Classy sprinting mare Egyptian Symbol (Stratum-Our Egyptian Raine, by Desert Sun) will head to the Gold Coast next month at the top of her game after posting a dominant win in the Wyong Magic Millions 3YO & 4YO (1200m) yesterday. The Bjorn Baker-trained 4YO proved a class above her rivals when scoring by 1.5 lengths over Madotti and Dam Ready, recording a final 600m split in a blistering 32.82 seconds. "It's great for (owners) Cressfield. I'm lucky to have a well bred filly like her in the stable," Baker told Sky Racing. "She's on her way to the Magic Millions fillies and mares race over 1300 metres." He added: "She was probably a bit unlucky in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas last year so I think we have a little bit of unfinished business...she's going well." Retained to race by her breeder Cressfield Farm after she was passed in for $90,000 at the 2014 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale, Egyptian Symbol is the seventh foal to race for 8-time stakes winner and Gr1 Railway Stakes (NZ) winner Our Egyptian Raine. Her Zoustar yearling colt will be offered by Cressfield at the Gold Coast next month.
