More than a dozen Penrith business owners will be cheering on Magic Millions favourite Storm Boy this Saturday.

Legendary trainer Gai Waterhouse brought Storm Boy to The Log Cabin last year as part of an address to a business group.

A group of 15 business owners from the day bought a $6000 share each and collectively own 20 per cent of the two-year-old colt.

The horse has had two career starts for two wins, but faces its biggest challenge this Saturday on the Gold Coast.

The Magic Millions 2YO Classic is a $3 million race with an honoured history.

Storm Boy, which has already attracted $279,000 in prize money, is a short-priced favourite to win the race.

If it salutes on Saturday, you’ll be able to hear the cheers not only on course – but at the Loggie, where Storm Boy’s Penrith connection began.
