The final field and barriers are now out for the 2012 Magic Millions Classic, the $2 million race that will bring the Gold Coast to a halt this Saturday January 14.
Such is the hype surrounding the 2012 Magic Millions carnival that hundreds of spectators flocked to this morning’s barrier draw, some in the know and some no doubt out of pure curiosity.
That’s the joy of racing though, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a first time punter or a 50 year veteran, everyone has the same chance to win when those gates fly open and everyone can share in that same little thrill.
Down to business though and for the top guns the barrier draw was all good.
Amorino picked up gate 8 with Sizzling in 6 and Dreifontein for Gai Waterhouse in 3.
Certainly no excuses for any of those horses or indeed their jockeys if they fail to live up to the mark.
As it stands in the early stages we can expect Dreifontein to certainly push forward from gate 3 with Noogoora Burr another likely pacemaker coming across from 12.
Alezan Thunder will also be pushed forward from 9 meaning there’ll be no shortage of pace in the race.
That’s not even taking into consideration those in outside stalls that may see no other option then taking the lead.
This plays perfectly into the hands of the likes of Sizzling who should be able to slot in behind them with ease and come off a hot tempo when they swing around the bend.
