Majestic Music Wins Yallambee Classic

March 9th, 2010

Majestic Music won the Group 2 Yallambee Classic (1200m) at the Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide on Monday.

The Leon McDonald and Andrew Gluyas-trained three-year-old started from a relatively wide barrier to cut across the field and win the race. McDonald and Gluyas’ other starter, Bint Maher, finished in sixth position.

It seems the next target on Majestic Music’s schedule is the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) on the 20th of March also in Adelaide.

Rounding off the top three finishers was the John Thompson-trained Happy Hippy. Thompson’s other starter for the race, Clocked, finished last in the 13-horse field.

Luminous Harmony was another favourite before the Yallambee Classic. The Mick Price-trained filly finished the 1,200 metre race in fourth spot.
