Promising colt Wolf Cry made trainer Peter Snowden wait a little longer than planned before breaking his maiden status in emphatic style on Saturday.
Wolf Cry, the $2.10 favourite, lived up to his Sydney stakes race form when he streaked away to win the $250,000 Magic Millions Maiden (1200m) in race-record time.
However, the win wasn’t without drama as Wolf Cry reared in the barriers and lost a shoe, holding up the start for six minutes while he was reshod.
“It wasn’t ideal was it? But we have been patient with him and we just had to wait a little bit longer,” Snowden said.
Snowden said Wolf Cray had form around some of the best young horses in Australia and only needed some luck to be in the finish at the Gold Coast.
“Not many of these had raced against horses such as Vancouver and Exosphere. He will go on to win better races after this,” Snowden said.
Wolf Cry, a son of top sire Street Cry, cost $320,000 at the 2014 Magic Millions sales and the win took his earnings to $193,000.
Meanwhile, Queanbeyan trainer Joe Cleary carried on a family tradition when War Jet ($4.80) gave jockey Noel Callow a consolation win in the $250,000 Country Cup (1200m).
Cleary’s father Frank won the 1992 Magic Millions 2YO Classic with Clan O’Sullivan and while War Jet will never be in that class he is consistent.
“I got War Jet off Peter Snowden and I have won seven races with him now. I will take him home and set him for the Canberra National Sprint in the autumn,” Cleary said.
“It was also great to team up with Noel. He was coming to ride The Cleaner and when he didn’t accept I told him he could ride my horse.”
