KISS OF QUEENSLAND
KISS A ROSE BLOOMS FOR RAHEEN
Raheen Stud bred filly Kiss a Rose will be set for the G1 Thousand Guineas after producing a paralysing last-to-first burst in the G3 Quezette Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on Saturday.
The Sebring three year-old had won on debut at Caulfield last summer but was sidelined with a virus during the autumn. “She will head to the Thousand Guineas but I think she’s really more an autumn filly,” trainer Peter Moody said. “Whatever she does this spring is a bonus.”
The $600,000 Thousand Guineas will be run at Caulfield on Wednesday, October 16.
Kiss a Rose (3f Sebring – Hurl by Redoute’s Choice) was bred and sold by Raheen for $180,000 at the 2012 Gold Coast Magic Millions. Agent Cameron Cooke Bloodstock bought her on behalf of prominent owner Les Cowell.

MORE MULTIPLE WINNERS
It was another great weekend for Glenlogan Park Stud, with winning trebles in both Brisbane and the Gold Coast on Saturday.
First cab off the rank was Bradbury’s Luck’s progressive 4YO, Tom’s Luck, who really put a gap on his rivals as he left them standing not long after entering the straight.
Then it was Qld’s Champion Stallion, Show A Heart’s turn to deliver- and that is exactly what he did by registering a race-to-race winning double with Mishani Warrior and Heart Of Many (pictured, Dan Costello Racing). Full details…
In the last race of the day at Doomben, Lyndhurst Stud’s ever-consistent sire, Sequalo stole the show with The Storeman.
The 4yo had a dominant win in the Coke Zero Hcp to add to his impressive record making it 14 starts for 5 wins 2 seconds and a third and smashing the $100,000 mark in prizemoney.
And Wattlebrae Stud enjoyed more than fairy floss at the ‘Exhibtion Wednesday’ at Eagle Farm with two winners from two runners for Easy Rocking – Be Fair and Easy Rocking giving owners more thrills than any EKKA ride could.
150,000 REASONS TO CHASE QTIS
There was $150,000 worth of reasons to make sure you have a QTIS eligible horse in the coming racing seasons.
$150,000 bonus prizemoney was available across eleven races this week and only $77,000 was claimed. That leaves a massive $73,000 in the QTIS kitty for reallocation.
The QTIS bonuses make a huge difference to prizemoney, with the prizemoney jumping from $50,000 to $85,000, $10,000 to $22,000 and from $5,000 to $11,000.
It’s not only metropolitan and provincial areas that benefit from the scheme, this week QTIS races boosted prizemoney at Prairie, Yeppoon, Gympie and Innisfail.
Winners include Mr Ziggaro, Still As, Craiglea Pixie, Beadsworth, Craiglea Zamia and Heza Bobby Dazzler.
