Magic Feeling is magical in Celias Counsel final

TORONTO, May 1 - Magic Feeling, driven by Mike Saftic, parlayed a two-hole trip into a winning effort in this year's edition of the $34,400 Celias Counsel final at Woodbine Racetrack.

After capturing last week's second leg at odds of 50-1, the daughter of Kadabra remains unbeaten in two starts this season for trainer and co-owner Frank O'Reilly.

Flexible Woman (Steve Byron) was quickly on the march in the early stages as she led her nine rivals past the opening quarters in :27.4. Magic Feeling was sitting In The Pocket with K D Bella (Randy Waples) sitting third.

Flexible Woman would continue to lead past the half in :57.1 and three-quarters in 1:27.

Race favourite Tosca (Per Henriksen) would venture first-over around the final turn, giving cover to Just Call Me Lady (Trevor Ritchie), who had been parked the mile.

Turning for home, Flexible Woman was still in command, but Tosca, Magic Feeling and K D Bella were within striking range.

In deep stretch, K D Bella appeared to have the most momentum on the outside, but Saftic was able to split between horses with Magic Feeling and find a seam in the final stages to score the victory in 1:57.3. K D Bella finished second with Tosca third. Flexible Woman completed the superfecta.

A $30,000 yearling purchase, Magic Feeling increased her bankroll to $24,700 for co-owners John Fielding and Isidoro Russo.

She paid $7 to win.
