Music Magnate Spot On For Expressway

By Brad Gray

Music Magnate will be the headline horse at Rosehill this Saturday when he steps out in the $200,000 G2 Expressway Stakes.

The five-year-old has looked very sharp in two trial wins to tune up for his resumption. He was last sighted on the track over the Queensland winter where he won the G1 Doomben 10,000.

“He is really well. He’s had two good trials and is moving better than ever,” Bjorn Baker said.

“He’s had a good break to get over a virus in the spring. His coat is in good order. At times it has looked ordinary but he is spot on.”

“Kerrin McEvoy sticks with him which is great. He has been impressed with the trials and is looking forward to Saturday.”

In his latest trial victory he cruised home to put a space on the likes of Winx, Endless Drama and Arod. But what exactly does Baker look for when a horse of Music Magnate’s calibre steps out at the trials?

“That he is moving well. He has run good time without being put under any pressure."

As far as autumn goals go, races like the TJ Smith and All Aged Stakes look logical targets but Baker is keeping his options open for the time being. And there are plenty of them.

“We’ll see how he comes through. We’re thinking about a little freshen up or Melbourne or even the Apollo. Brisbane is in the back of my mind too so we’ll have a bit of a think about it.”

If he line up in the Apollo Stakes on February 11, that would of course mean a showdown with Winx.
