In some more fantastic results for Queensland breeders, the maroons saluted in three State’s yesterday, as well as their usual domination at the Brisbane metropolitan meeting.
Lyndhurst Stud’s Champion sire, Sequalo recorded a State to State double when Mr Backchat took out the 3yo Stakes Family Day event over 1250m at Morphettville. Just two hours later G’Day Old Mate won the BM 90 Sky Racing World Hcp (1000m) at Eagle Farm.
Glenlogan Park also celebrated a State to State double after 2yo Easy Drama, by Champion sire Real Saga, won the VOBIS Gold Ingot (1200m) at Flemington. Ten minutes earlier Falvelon 2yo, Shinji saluted in the opening event at Eagle Farm, the $85,000 QTIS AON Risk Solutions (1000m). Shinji has now had just two starts for two wins.
It was actually almost a state to state double for Falvelon, when Fab Fevola almost pulled it off after leading all the way to be just run down in the Braybrook Open Handicap (1000m) at Flemington.
Glenlogan’s other Champion Sire, the always consistent Bradbury’s Luck, also had a winner when his top 3yo, Queen of the Lochs (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) continued on her winning way to take out the 3yo Fillies Novotel Brisbane Plate over 1400m.
While today Bradbury’s Luck added another black type performer to his credentials after In Cahoots won the Listed $250,000 Gosford Guineas (1200m), run in atrocious more
Freton had his second win in two weeks for Banchory Stud sire, Markane, winning the 1812m Drumbeats@Lyndhurst BM80.
And Craiglea Stud sire, Top Echelon closed the card for Queensland after Nickiera won the Gallopers Sports Club (1200m) BM85.
The country circuit was the big beneficiary of QTIS prizemoney this week.
There were six races at Winton, Thangool, Innisfail,Gympie, Goondiwindi and Blackall offering $5,000 in QTIS bonuses which added $3,500 to the winner’s purse, $1,000 extra for second placed and another $500 for third.
$22,000 was offered at Dalby on Friday taking the winnings from $8,500 to $15,000 for Just As Sweet, from $2,000 to $4,300 for Chinabob and from $1,000 to $2,200 for Ain’t Going Down.
That scenario was repeated in the Provincial areas, at at Rockhampton, Townsville, the Sunshine Coast and Toowoomba while $25,000 was offered at the Gold Coast thanks to the $12,000 QTIS bonus there.
There were two $27,000 events at Doomben on Wednesday, the 3yo Fillies Maiden Plate and 2yo Maiden Plate. The QTIS bonus meant the winner of each event raced away with $18,050 rather than $11,050, $5,400 went to second place up from $3,400 and third prize increased to $2,700.
There was a total of $157,000 in QTIS bonuses offered on 15 races across Queensland this week. You can see the results here

The Countdown is on to Central Queensland’s most highly anticipated weekend, the Capricornia Yearling Sale.
Vendors and buyers will be welcome this Friday before enjoying the Saturday races and then the Sale on Sunday.
Last year the  Sale grossed $777,000 and with more lots and better quality yearlings set to go under the hammer this year, that mark looks set to be eclipsed.
Organisers of the 2014 sale at Rockhampton Showgrounds were flooded with yearling nominations and 131 lots have been catalogued. On paper there are some cracking types lining up to be sold.

The recipients of the Queensland Fillies Sales Bonus Incentive (QFSBI) will be rubbing their hands with glee after the Golden Slipper results on Saturday.
There were eight fillies in the top quality field and they filled the first seven places.
‘Girl Power’ isn’t something new when you consider Australia’s top horses over the years have been fillies and mares; Black Caviar, Typhoon Tracy, Silent Achiever, Sunline, Makybe Diva, Private Steer, Red Tracer, Dane Ripper, Pinker Pinker, Surround and Emancipation just to name a few.
Yet buyers are often still reluctant to purchase a filly. Those statistics certainly changed at the Magic Millions March Sale, possibly due to the recently implemented QFSBI.
It was a partnership between Racing Queensland, Magic Millions and the TBQA and was a series of 25 races where the winning owners received a $5000 credit bonus to go towards purchasing a filly at the Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale.
In some interesting results 42% of Fillies offered this year sold, compared to 37% last year with the average price $21,310.81, up from $17,360.36 in 2013.
The QFSBI winners should definitely be looking forward to the coming racing seasons.
