The eight-year-old gelding then went on to place tenth in the Group 2 Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes in a field of ten runners.

Magic Pearl has won nine of his 46 race starts and has earned more than $350,000 in prize money.

The Keltrice gelding has his most recent start at Morphettville Racecourse on July 14, 2012, where he finished sixth.

Magic Pearl will be looking to feature prominently in the spring racing news for all the right reasons when he returns for the spring carnival.
