Darley Target for Vega Magic

Tuesday, 31st October 2017

Lindsay Park have confirmed that star sprinter Vega Magic (Lope de Vega-Admirable, by Magic Albert) will press on towards the $1 million Gr1 Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington on Saturday week. The dual Group 1 winner finished an unlucky fifth (beaten 2.75 lengths) behind Hey Doc in Friday night's Gr1 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley after striking interference in the straight. "We'll press on towards the Darley with Vega Magic," co-trainer Tom Dabernig said. "Obviously he's never been down the straight before but at this stage I think that's what we'll do." Dabernig added: "He's sound but we'll keep an eye on him over the next few days." The former West Australian-trained galloper is already a two-time Group 1 winner of the Goodwood Handicap (1200m) and Memsie Stakes (1400m). He was also considered unlucky when second to Redzel in The Everest at his penultimate start after starting from an outside gate.
