Todd Howlett will target another Highway Handicap with Magic Choir after he made a successful metropolitan debut in the concept for country horses at Rosehill.
The four-year-old ($18) notched the third win of his six-race career after finishing strongly to beat Gitan ($7) by half a length on Saturday, with Forever Newyork ($18) a neck away third.
After recording his third Highway Handicap victory, Howlett said Magic Choir could expect to make another road trip from Muswellbrook over summer.
“We picked this out early in his prep and we’ll come back for another Highway,” he said.
Magic Choir headed to Sydney after winning the Class One Stratum Star @ Widden Handicap at Scone on November 30.
“He’s racing well. He’s doing a nice job,” Howlett said.
Jockey Adam Hyeronimus agreed: “He travelled well like the winner throughout. He let down nice.
“He’s going the right way, he’s a nice horse.”
