Sheikh Mohammed's operation will have two certain runners at the Magic Millions meeting at the Gold Coast on January 12 – Tally (Magic Millions Trophy) and Manicure (Fillies and Mares) – with both winning their way in via wild card races at Doomben on Saturday.
Although most of Godolphin's racing stock are home-breds, Magic Millions Classic hopeful Exhilarates is an exception.
A $600,000 yearling by champion sire Snitzel out of the Group One winning mare Samaready, Exhilarates was one of the first horses bought by Godolphin at a Magic Millions sale.
She is just outside the Millions field with earnings of $47,000 following a good second in the Wyong Millions race in November.
Exhilarates has been entered for the $100,000 Clan O'Sullivan Handicap at the Gold Coast on Saturday with a decision on a run to be made later this week.
Godolphin's Australian managing director Vin Cox said he was pleased the organisation could be a part of the day.
Cox was the managing director at Magic Millions before taking up the position at Godolphin and one of the prime overs behind the $10 million day in January.
“I was a part of the decision to have a $10 million race day for Magic Millions,” Cox said.
“It is an outstanding effort by the whole team to get two wild cards into Millions day.
“Manicure had a few setbacks after the spring and everyone worked hard to get her to the stage she could win a stakes race first-up.”
Six-year-old Tally won his way in with victory in Saturday's Shoot Out Quality.
Godolphin has had only one previous Magic Millions day runner, Kinshachi, who got a wild card into the Fillies and Mares race and finished seventh in 2017.
