Gemma’s Son is the Magic Millions WA 3YO Trophy favourite, but no Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic winner has completed the double despite three champion two-year-old thoroughbreds returning for a crack at three-year-old riches.
Cadenza (fifth in 2015), Lucky Street (sixth in 2016) and Lucy Mae (seventh in 2018) have failed to follow up their Magic Millions 2YO Classic triumphs with Magic Millions WA 3YO Trophy successes. Lucky Street, which is the sire of Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic second emergency Lucky Foo Foo, flopped in the 2016 Magic Millions WA 3YO Trophy at odds of 3-10 before a post-race veterinary examination revealed him to have returned with cardiac arrhythmia.
Gemma’s Son, which is the full brother of Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic outsider Snippagem, has won five of his 12 starts, including the 2020 Perth Stakes at Listed level, earning nearly $600,000 for his connections. Paul Harvey, who has ridden Gemma’s Son six times for three victories, is set to steer the David Harrison-trained colt at Pinjarra.
