Better Reflection a $20,000 Magic Millions buy looks a big danger in the race
*Conditions Apply. Excl VIC, NSW, SA & WA. Gamble Responsibly

There can be no doubt the Magic Millions sales only racing concept has been a runaway winner over the years.

It evens things up.

The rich people rub shoulders in the auction ring with the sport’s battlers and on occasions, on the race track too.

Well, on Saturday that great equaliser, that great divide, that great racing conundrum happens in the most spectacular way when the babies parade for the $2million Magic Millions Classic over 1200m.

David Hayes, with the help from his son Ben and fellow Lindsay Park trainer Tom Dabernig, will saddle Movie Role in the race.

She is beautifully bred, being by Fastnet Rock from the great producer Aspen Falls. The breeding makes Movie Role a full-sister to the Gr 1 winner Irish Lights.

And at the sales she fetched $600,000 making her the most expensive runner in the race.

But just three saddle cloths away in the parade ring we find Better Reflection, who cost a paltry $20,000.

Movie Role is the most expensive purchase in the field and Better Reflection is the cheapest and if you map this race accordingly, with a little luck thrown in, this pair could quinella the race!

Both are last start city winners and both can sit behind what will undoubtedly be a frantic early pace.

I actually think Better Reflection will win the race.

Her last start win where she sat wide all the way and just roared away, was about the best lead-up run I’ve seen.

And what a fairy-tale that win would be. Cheapest horse in the field, whose mother was even cheaper when purchased as a yearling. She fetched just $1000, and never raced.

Better Reflection is by the boom First Crop sire Better Than Ready. Her mum is Miraposa, who is by Canny Lad and she has had 5 foals to race with all of them being winners.

The tough little filly will take the long road trip down from her Rockhampton home for the race. She’s trained by John Wigginton who only has a handful of horses in his stable.

Racing is that great equaliser in life and this race more than most renditions could prove that point profoundly.
