Trainer Robbie Griffiths is hoping a return to racing around a corner will land connections of Magnicity a big pay day at Bendigo.
The two-year-old runs in the $250,000 VOBIS Gold Rush, a race for VOBIS qualified horses, that also carries an extra $30,000 in Super VOBIS bonuses.
All acceptors in the 1000m-dash are running for the additional prize money.
“I'm sure it's going to be a crackerjack race, as they are when they're worth a quarter-of-a-million dollars,” Griffiths said.
“We're going to have a go and see how she measures up.”
Magnicity was unplaced twice as a spring two-year-old then returned chasing a Blue Diamond Stakes start when she won first-up at The Valley on February 1,
Griffiths said Magnicity had freshened up nicely for her tilt at Bendigo on Saturday.
“She was good at The Valley then got a little bit lost down the straight and wasn't as effective at Flemington,” Griffiths said.
“It was a pretty hot race that day and there were a few trying to push for a start in the Blue Diamond and I think back around a corner, that's going to suit her.”
“She's having a crack on Saturday and all going well we'll head to the million dollar race at Caulfield,” Griffiths said.
“It's good money so they're well worth having a shot at.”
