Show A Heart (pictured) has shown just why he has won Queensland Champion Stallion for the past three years – and is in the running for making it a quadrella.
The weekend saw the Glenlogan Park sire deliver another five winners in just two days, including a winning double at Eagle Farm with 3yo filly Strip Show and 5yo gelding Prost.
Both horses have now strung back to back victories in town and have the ability to compete at much higher levels.
Then on Sunday at the Sunshine Coast, Show A Heart gallopers claimed an impressive three of the four events he was represented in.
The talented trio included Woorim’s little brother, Bribie, Restless Heart and Show Me An Ace who now has three wins and two seconds from just six starts.
Another big weekend looms for Show A Heart, with Toorak Toff and Woorim representing Queensland in the G1 Toorak Handicap.
