Flying Jess Wins Listed Magic Millions 3YO Guineas

Monday, 16th January 2017

At the Gold Coast in Queensland, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a restricted black-type success when 3YO filly Flying Jess (Hinchinbrook-Maritess, by Magic Albert) scored by 0.3 length at huge odds of $101 for trainer John Moloney in the $2 million Listed (R) Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO fillies Global Glamour (Star Witness-Spectacula, by Testa Rossa) & Eckstein (I Am Invincible-Comrie, by Choisir). The $1.65 favourite and previously unbeaten colt Winning Rupert appeared to fail to run out a strong seven furlongs, fading late to finish fourth. Flying Jess's surprise win improved her record to 2 wins (including the Gr3 SA Sires' Produce Stakes) and 2 placings from 12 starts for $1,296,430 earnings. Hailing from the same family as Gr1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Dinky Flyer (her third dam), Flying Jess was purchased by Prime Thoroughbreds for $60,000 at the 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Milburn Creek. Trainer John Moloney said Flying Jess would be aimed at races such as the Gr1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) in the autumn.
