CAN AWAY GAME MAKE HISTORY AT MAGIC MILLIONS

It was considered a boilover when Away Game for Ciaron Maher and David Eustace won the Magic Millions 2yo Classic last year. However tomorrow she returns to the track where she won just 12 months ago looking to make history as second favourite for the race

The exact dividend for her win that day was $41 starting price and $11 the place. Watching a replay of the race though you would have thought she was a red hot favourite as she pulled clear to dominate the $2m race.

Now Maher and Eustace are looking for Magic Millions history as Away Game attempts to be the first horse to win both the 2 year old Classic and 3 year old Guineas at the Gold Coast.

Some have gone close but the closest double had been a family affair with Tereschenko, who won with the Guineas in 2006 being produced by 1998 winner Testa Rossa.

Away Game looks to have every chance to go down in history however Tony Gollan trained Isotope appears to be standing in the way with the Gold Coast local currently a $2.50 shot to win the race.

The two locked horns in a recent trial at the Gold Coast with Away Game pushing out to win. Isotope was never ridden to win but was closing in the later stages of the trial. Maher afterwards said he was happy with the run in which the 3yo filly needed after a first up second in Brisbane.

The market seems to have it down to a two horse race with roughly 70% of the purse on the two runners.

One to watch in the race and has gained quiet support is the favourite for last year's 2 year old race is Aim for team Snowden. Aim was a $4.60 shot to win the $2m classic last year before languishing in midfield.

Whatever happens on Saturday it’s sure to make for a great day of racing up on the Gold Coast.
