Neville Layt’s boom two-year-old filly Karuta Queen maintained her unbeaten record at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Race Day on Saturday January 15, scoring another dominant victory in the 2011 Magic Millions 2YO Classic.
A daughter of Not A Single Doubt Karuta Queen did one better than her sire, Not A Single Doubt finishing second to Dance Hero in the 2004 Magic Millions 2YO showdown, leading from start to finish in the day’s $2 million feature to bring her career record up to four wins from four starts for an impressive $1,414,000 in total prize money.
Karuta Queen hadn’t raced since taking out the Wyong Magic Millions 2YO Classic on December 5 but proved the lengthy time between starts had done nothing to dull her form, the clear $3.50 favourite never challenged as she raced away to beat $14 roughie Combat Kitty by three lengths with Schiffer ($5.50) in third.
It was the second successive year the Magic Millions 2YO Classic Trifecta featured all all-filly finish after Military Grace, Ambers Waltz and Demanding Miss placed one, two, three in the 1200m sprint 12 months ago.
The $3.5million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on April 2 is the next big race target for Karuta Queen as she aims to become just the third horse in history to complete the Magic Millions Classic – Golden Slipper double along with Phelan Ready (2008) and Dance Hero (2004).
