Creating a big impression with a facile four length win over 1050 metres at Doomben was the Tony Gollan trained Zelady's Night Out, who bolted in on debut as favourite.
The Myboycharlie (IRE) filly was a $65,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Yarraman draft for B2B Bloodstock/ Blue Sky Bloodstock and is the eighth winner from eight to race from top producer Zelady.
A half-sister to stakes-winner Excites Zelady, Zelady's Night Out is the final foal of Zelady, who died earlier this year.
She will be aimed at the Magic Millions 2YO Classic in January and will follow the traditional path via the Listed BRC Calaway Gal Stakes (1000m) at Doomben on December 12.
"She will then run in the Bruce McLachlan Stakes which will be the perfect lead-up because it is at the Gold Coast this year and will give her a look at the track," Gollan said.
"She has shown us plenty right from the start. As you saw she can be a little stirred up before going into the barriers but she can really fly the gates.
"The good thing is she jumped lengths in front, but then came back under Jim (jockey Byrne) and relaxed beautifully.
"She really appeals as an ideal Magic Millions horse although I think eventually she will get out to 1400 metres. The other plus is showed today she could handle a wet track."
