At Royal Randwick in Sydney, 6YO Irish bred gelding Magic Hurricane (Hurricane Run-Close Regards, by Danehill) landed the biggest prize of his career when scoring by 2-lengths for trainer John O'Shea in the $750,000 Gr1 Metropolitan (2400m) for 3YO+, over 8YO UK bred gelding Beaten Up (Beat Hollow-Frog, by Akarad) & fellow 6YO Irish bred gelding Havana Cooler (Hurricane Run-Unquenchable, by Kingmambo). The Godolphin-owned Magic Hurricane, who is by Montjeu's Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe-winning son Hurricane Run, took his record to 5 wins (including the Listed Premier's Cup) and 5 placings from 16 starts for $667,390 earnings. Trainer John O'Shea is hoping Magic Hurricane can join stable-mates  Complacent and Hauraki in the Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m)  in two weeks a time. "That run will have him at his top, I don't know whether that's enough to get him a penalty to get him into the race but if he gets in we'd like to run him and we'll have three nice chances in the race," O'Shea said.
