Filly Taking It Easy Ahead of MM Classic
Unbeaten 2YO filly Nomothaj (Snitzel-Real Stolle, by Elusive Quality) will have a low key-key build-up to her next start in next month's Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast, reports racenet. The Lindsay Park-trained filly, who got her career off to the perfect start with a determined win in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on 7 October, is scheduled to trial over 900m at Rosehill on Friday. "She's been up there [Sydney] a week and we plan to give her two trials as a race won't necessarily improve her," co-trainer David Hayes said. "The two trials will bring her right to her top and she can go first-up into the race." Nomothaj was a $420,000 purchase by Sheikh Hamdan's Shadwell Stud Australasia at the 2017 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Newgate Farm. Nomothaj is currently a $17 chance with TAB for the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on 13 January.
