3/12/2018 Bribie lead-up for Houtzen

Classy sprinter Houtzen (I Am Invincible) is likely to have only one run before trying to add to her Magic Millions carnival record. Houtzen won the 2017 Magic Millions 2YO Classic (RL, 1200m) in brilliant fashion before going on to race against some of the best sprinters in Australia. At her most recent start, Houtzen was an unlucky sixth in the Manikato Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) at Moonee Valley on October 26 and Toby Edmonds is now planning to run Houtzen in the Bribie Handicap (Listed, 1000m) at Doomben on December 15. "She can then go straight into the Magic Millions Sprint over 1000 metres. After that we can think about the autumn and winter," Edmonds said.
