ARBEITSAM on Target for Magic Millions Cup Assault with Super Workout

08 Jan 19

If this mornings final hit out at the Gold Coast is anything to go by, ARBEITSAM is wound up and ready to fly in the 2019 $1 million Magic Millions Cup 1400m on Saturday.

The Dynamic Syndications son of Snitzel from the mare Workhard, was offered through the Magic Millions Sales by David Baxter’s Macquarie Stud and purchased by Dynamic Syndications for $125,000.

To date he’s had 25 Starts: 7 Wins : 7 placings and earned over $1.1 million in prizemoney.

From the date of his last start back on 13 October, ARBEITSAM connections have targeted this race. Having run second in the event in 2018, there is a desire to see our honest horse go one better in 2019.

ARBEITSAM has a record of delivering brilliant rating figures with his first up efforts and can be a little flat second-up so we mapped out a programme that saw the horse only have 2 weeks off before returning to the Randwick stables of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.

He has been aimed to be fit and strong and at his competitive best on Saturday, having had an easy first up trial over an unsuitable 845m at Wyong on 3 December and then was dominating in a 1200m trial in slick time at Warwick Farm on 27 December.

ARBEITSAM has been here over a week and his trackwork at the Gold Coast on Tuesday morning was sizzling. Ridden by Tegan Harrison, they went 6 furlongs dashing home his final 2 furlongs in fine style and Tegan reported he we still flying as he finished his work and was turning out of the straight. 

This has topped our 5yo gelding off superbly as we await final acceptances and all-important barrier draw on Wednesday morning. Not that it matters to ARBEITSAM as our free running gelding is a natural, take no prisoners leader however drawing close to the fence is always an advantage.

Gai Waterhouse with Adrian Bott were on hand along with Adam Watt from Team Dynamic and the trio were very upbeat, as was his rider Tegan.


ARBEITSAM will be ridden by his regular jet pilot Tim Clark and in pre-race, all-in betting markets, he opened at 8.00 and was crunched at that price and into $5.00 is now Equal Favourite at $5.00 and $2.00 with Victorian Usain Bowler who is $6.00 into $5.00.

It certainly is a wonderful ride for the Owners of ARBEITSAM.

Its an exciting time of the year on the Gold Coast with the start of the Magic Millions Sales on Wednesday and the big raceday this Saturday.
