Second in the Magic Millions 2YO Clockwise Classic last year, three-year-old colt PROMPT RETURN (right) will head towards the $100,000 Magic Millions 3 & 4YO Classic over 1100m.
Second up after a run at Flemington during Cup Week, Prompt Return was having his first starts in almost nine months on that occasion, and justifiably knocked up late.
A winner of the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate when racing second up during his first ever racing campaign, the son of Beneteau was purchased for $60,000 in 2014 from the draft of Newgate Farm and races in the ownership of Mark Sowerby and Ron Hamer.
With Saturday’s run giving trainer Danny O’Brien a guide as to how he has come back, the exciting colt is likely to progress onto the 2016 Magic Millions race day on the Gold Coast, a day worth over $10 million in prizemoney!
Set to join him in the race at Ballarat, is four-year-old Manhattan Rain mare BOUNDARY (below), who resumed recently at Mornington for trained Heath Conners with a pleasing third place.
Already the winner of two races for her large group of owners; Newhaven Park Syndicate (Mgr: R J Kelly, Mrs S Kelly, J W Kelly, R C Kelly, Mrs N Agostini, Mrs G Walker) V O C Racing Syndicate (Mgr: G Pignatelli), R K Hamer, Blue Sky Thoroughbreds Syndicate (Mgr: J Blaxland), N A Mukhi, M Rava, J A Lee and S C Waugh, it was around this time last year when she started her career finishing first, second and third at her first three starts.
Purchased from the draft of Millbrook at the 2013 Magic Millions Yearling Sale, there could also be an option for this mare to head north for the Magic Millions race day in January.
With both runners set to take on a handy field of runners, Blue Sky Bloodstock would like to wish the connections of both Prompt Return and Boundary the best of luck for the race.
