Vega Magic Gr 1 Magic

Vega Magic could be bound for the A$10-million The Everest on Oct. 14 after recording a second Group 1 win in Caulfield’s Memsie Stakes (1400m).

The progressive 5-year-old gelding may be up for a slot in The Everest, but David Hayes says his team would wait until stablemate Redkirk Warrior (Aus) (Notnowcato {GB}) runs in the G2 Bobby Lewis Quality in two weeks to make a final decision.

“There’s A$10 million up there so he would be a logical one for the [G1 Sir] Rupert Clarke [S. on Oct. 1] or The Everest and I’m thinking The Everest, “It’s more to do with [owner] Wally Daly and what they want to do and what deal can be struck. There are a lot of people very keen on him if the owners on our side are prepared to do it. He’d be a lovely fresh horse up there; he’s got six weeks to it and he would come out with horns on I think.”

Vega Magic, previously based in Western Australia, won or placed in his first nine starts before finishing ninth in his stakes debut in the G3 Prince of Wales S. at Ascot last October. He bounced back with a win two weeks later over the same course in the G3 Heineken-Colonel Reeves S., and was seventh when making his Group 1 debut in the Winterbottom S. Vega Magic made just one start in the autumn and he made it count when taking the G1 Darley Goodwood S. over 1200 metres at Morphettville. He was second up on Saturday, coming off a win in the Listed Regal Roller S. at Caulfield on Aug. 19.
