Epic Grey was given no favours in the Magic Millions Three Year Old event at Pinjarra today with the powerful grey posted three wide throughout although entering the straight he put his rivals to the sword to score an easy win on the line in the $150,000 event over 1200m.
Trainer Lindsey Smith has done a marvellous job with the gelding that narrowly missed winning the Belgravia Stakes in the Spring and Lindsey believes the grey has big race wins in his future. The victory took his impressive record to 4 wins, 4 seconds and 2 thirds from 10 starts with the win taking his earnings over $242,000.
