Magic Earner endorsed her favourite status in the Ladbrokes NSW State Distance Final, winning the $15,000 to the winner event in 42.17 over Lord Golec and Ada Mary. 

Prepared by Anthony Azzopardi, Magic Earner was able to get on the heels of early leader Ada Mary in the back straight, coming away for a 4 3/4 length victory in the end. 

Impressed with her recent form, Azzopardi said the daughter of High Earner x Magic Capers was showing all the right signs ahead of next week's $75,000 Championship. 

"It's a thrill to have won and qualify for next week," Azzopardi said. 

Up and coming stayer, Lord Golec was also impressive in his second and will now take on seasoned runners such as Sweet It Is in next Saturday's Championship decider.
