Cheers to for the latest!!



Once again Queensland bred gallopers have dominated the Brisbane metropolitan program, winning half the card at Doomben on Saturday.
It was a winning double for Lyndhurst Stud. Grand sire, Sequalo, got the ball rolling with Bahsa taking out the Mt Franklin Sparkling 1020m.
Lyndhurst’s other Champion Stallion, Hidden Dragon, closed out the day when Bodega Negra (pictured, courtest Dan Costello Racing) took out the 3yo QTIS Hcp (1350m) and collected an impressive $56,500 in the process thanks to the QTIS bonus prizemoney.
Rocket to Glory returned from a spell in brilliant fashion leading from barrier to box and giving nothing else a chance in the Makers Mark Hcp (1020m).
By Raheen Stud’s deceased sire Shovhog, the 5yo Tony Gollan-trained gelding has now won just under $500,000 in prizemoney with seven wins, three seconds and three thirds from twenty six starts.
And Glenlogan Park sire, Jet Spur recorded a good winner in the Coke Zero Hcp over 1640m when Equissential had his seventh win and took his prizemoney over the $320,000.
The country meetings were the focus of almost $80,000 in QTIS bonus prizemoney this week, as we eagerly await the return of two year old racing.
There were seven QTIS races at Beaudesert, Monto, Ingham, Gold Coast, Dalby and Betoota with anywhere from $5,000 to $12,000 in extra cash available for QTIS eligible runners.
 The big money was at Doomben, with the 3yo QTIS handicap worth $85,000 thanks to the $35,000 bonus.
Bodega Negra ran away with $56,500 in that event thanks to the $24,500 bonus. This week’s other big winner was 3yo Queen of the Lochs (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) who collected $8,500 bonus prizemoney of top of her $6,500 winnings in the QTIS 3yo Maiden Plate at Beaudesert.
The popular National First Season Sires market for 2013/14 has been released and Glenlogan Park’s sire Red Element (pictured) is very high in the market.
Red Element, a dual Listed winning son of Red Ransom and the full brother to Champion Typhoon Tracy is quoted at just $7.00 to take out the National Freshman Sires Championship for this season.
That makes him the sixth most popular selection behind the Group One winning sire Nicconi and in front of the likes of Denman, Manhattan Rain, Von Costa de Hero, Big Brown, Wanted and Medaglia D’oro.
Obviously big things are expected of this beautifully bred son of Red Ransom and there’s plenty to look forward to for the Queensland breeding industry.
