After winning in her first start of the season last week at 50-1, trainer and co-owner Frank O'Reilly can only hope Magic Feeling is ready to pull another disappearing trick on the field in Thursday night's Celias Counsel final, at Woodbine. The daughter of Kadabra scored an eye-catching 1:57 victory in last week's second round of the Celias Counsel and now advances to the rich $34,400 final, slated for race six.
Looking ahead to this year's final of the Celias Counsel, O'Reilly remains optimistic about his chances.
"I think she has as good of a shot as any of them in there," he said. "She's paid into the Casual Breeze and Elegantimage so I do think enough of her. If she's on her game, she will be just fine."
John Fielding and Isidoro Russo also own the bay filly who has stashed away $7,500 in earnings.
This year's final of the Celias Counsel will begin in race six on Thursday evening's 10-race program.
The field will line up as follows:
2. Magic Feeling
3. Flexible Woman
4. K D Bella
5. Fashion Goddess
7. Kadabra Lavictoire
8. Wings Of Ballykeel
9. Miss Everything
10. Just Call Me Lady
