Magic Maiden win for Al

Aug 05, 2018

His debut run, a third at Ipswich a fortnight ago, suggested Al Magico would soon score his Maiden victory and he has - in a sensational way. 

The Al Maher 3yo sat on the pace before opening up at the top of the straight under Jimmy Orman and continued to extend his margin on the rest of the field in the run to the line - easy up to win by an impressive 5.25 lengths at the Sunshine Coast today.

"The winner was in one race - the rest in another" is how the caller saw it watching the replay. 

It was performance that has the Healey Racing team thinking of big things with Al Magico now being sent for a short summer spell, returning with the Queensland Derby in mind.
