The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained daughter of Star Witness was asked for an effort this morning and powered through her 1045 metre heat to win by two lengths in 1:00.80 seconds which was the fastest heat of the morning at that trip.

Global Glamour was second beaten a neck in the 2017 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas following a super successful spring three year-old season when she won both the Group I ATC Flight Stakes and MRC Thousand Guineas.

Global Glamour was a modest $65,000 Magic Millions purchase from the Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm draft for James Bester It’s All About The Girls Syndicate and has won $1.3 million for her large syndicate of women owners from right around the world.

Victorian based Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm have just two yearlings for Magic Millions, but one of them is a horse that most people will want to see.

Lot 768 is a filly by Snitzel from former superstar filly sprinter Gold Edition, the winner of 17 races and over $3million in prizemoney.

A grey daughter of Lion Hunter, Gold Edition won the first running of the Group I VRC Coolmore Stud Stakes when it was previously known as the Ascot Vale Stakes and had some memorable battles with Australian Horse of the Year Miss Andretti.

It’s a fairly safe bet that this filly will make a bit more money than Global Glamour did when she walked the Gold Coast sale ring in 2015.
