Magic Millions Wyong Classic to Geordoba’s Grandaughter

Former high-class South African sprinter Geordoba came to the fore on Wednesday, when her exciting granddaughter She’s All Class bolted away with the $200,000 Magic Millions Wyong Classic (1100m) on Wednesday to earn a slot in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic beside her stablemate and Breeders Plate winner Shaquero.

Trained by Chris Waller, two-year-old She’s All Class unleashed a devastating turn of foot over the concluding stages to race away and win by nearly five lengths over the promising Gleneagles.

Winning jockey James McDonald said after the win, “She’s a hypo little filly, so Chris and his team have done a great job with her. She has a really good turn of foot and the six furlongs will be right up her alley.”

A 60th stakes winner for her sire I Am Invincible, She’s All Class, third on her only previous start, was a $200 000 buy from the 2020 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.

The filly is out of the unraced Viscount mare Shirra Nui –herself a daughter of top South African racemare Geordoba. The latter, a flashy grey daughter of El Gran Senor horse Cordoba, won ten races in South Africa, up to 1000m, headed by the G3 Henry Eatwell Memorial Handicap.

Herself the dam of Opunake Cup winner Khemosabi, Geordoba’s third dam is G1 Garden Province Stakes winner and influential South African broodmare Run For Lily. The latter features as the ancestress of a host of top-class gallopers in South Africa including the G1 winners Bold Thatch,Coral Fever, Ravishing, Vega and Villandry.
