On Saturday January 15 the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Race Day took place at the Gold Coast Racecourse and in the fifth race of the day, the $328,000 Magic Millions Cup (1400m), Bold Glance claimed an upset win.
The Norm Hilton-trained Bold Glance ($16) was one of a number of Toowoomba gallopers that enjoyed success at this year’s Magic Millions Carnival, the Sequalo gelding putting in a massive effort to chase down classy mare Zero Rock ($4.60) and claim the prize with a narrow victory.
Magic Millions Cup favourite Captain Sonador ($3.50) was not disgraced finishing a close third in a photo finish with second placegetter Zero Rock.
It was a thrilling finish with a number of horses right at the line fighting for a top three finish and the closeness of the field saw fifth placegetter Fifteen Carat ($7) bump into another runner and fall to the ground along with mount Craig Williams.
Both horse and jockey escaped without any serious injury.
