The 2021 Karaka Million 2YO Classic will be run on January 23 at Ellerslie Racecourse over one mile.

This does look a two horse race between an undefeated Gelding and a bomb proof Filly, Aegon and Amerelinha who we will likely see feature in Australia over the Autumn for a Derby and Oaks campaign.

2021 Karaka 3YO Classic Tips

Karaka 3YO Classic 2021 Best Bet - Aegon

I thought he would be the favourite heading into this race over the Te Akau Filly after winning the 2000 Guineas, but this looks a nice price for a very classy Gelding.

He has won all three of his starts to date, including last start over the Group One where he scraped in over Bourbonaire.

He comes to Ellerslie for the first time, but with the Baker/Forsman touch, he will be right on song to be taking this race right up to the Filly.

With plans to come to Australia for an ATC Derby in the Autumn, we are expecting a top two finish for the son of Sacred Falls.

Karaka 3YO Classic 2021 Next Best Bet - Amarelinha

The Filly is two from two at Ellerslie, winning back-to-back races, including last start over the mile by over a length.

She is probably favourite here due to her silks which dominate the New Zealand racing scene, but she was always going to be either favourite or second favourite in the betting.

By champion Sire Savabeel, this Filly will relish her second trip at the mile and of course further as her career unfolds.

The second runner in the race with big ambition of an ATC Oaks win, she is clearly one of two horse that they need to beat.

Karaka 3YO Classic 2021 Value Bet - Bella Button

Based on a place perspective, Bella Button could be the one after her strong win last start at this course over 1500m, holding off rival Perfect Scenario.

She is a Filly on track for the New Zealand Oaks at Trentham, and being by Proisir she will certainly relish the mile.

She does not have the x-factor of the top two in betting, but in a market without those two runners, she would be a deserved favourite.

At $4.20 the place, she could be the move for those wanting value outside of the two top runners.
