SHOW A HEART CHAMPION AGAIN
Show A Heart rubber stamped his third consecutive Champion QLD Stallions title on Saturday when 5YO gelded son Woorim created history by winning back to back Listed Glasshouse Handicaps.
Show A Heart has been a runaway winner of the Champion Sire title for the last 2 seasons but this year has put an even bigger gap between himself and his rivals (over $1million) with some outstanding performances coming from Toorak Toff, Heart Of Dreams and Woorim.
After a luckless last start effort in the Stradbroke, where he was considered most unlucky not to have obtained clear galloping room, Woorim delivered his usual devastating finishing burst on Saturday to come from the tail of the field and prove too classy for his rivals.
In doing so, he became the first horse to ever win successive Glasshouse Handicaps (1400m) at the Sunshine Coast, setting a new weight carrying record (58.5kg) in the process.
EASY ROCKING’S SUCCESS
Wattlebrae Stud sire, Easy Rocking continues to impress after youngster Easy Successful easily won the Bruce McLachlan Classic (1200m) at the Sunshine Coast.
“He went very well this horse,” said trainer, Bryan Guy.
“He showed a bit of form before.”

“We had to race at the (Gold) Coast to come to town. In his first start in a race he was three deep and he ran a nice race.”

“He’s done a very good job today. He had to run along after getting across from the 13 barrier and he held them all off – so he’s done a great job.”

The young colt is a son of popular Wattle Brae Stud based sire Easy Rocking – a sire who’s progeny are renowned for handling tracks with give.
HENDRA SEMINAR
A Hendra Virus Seminar will be presented at the Beaudesert RSL at 6.30pm this Tuesday, July 5th.
It follows the outbreak of Hendra Virus at three locations, Kerry (near Beaudesert), Mt Alford (near Boonah) and Wollongbar on the NSW North Coast.
All affected properties remain under quarantine and test results are yet to be returned for both people and horses who came into contact with the infected animals.
Vets, horse owners and the community should be vigilant and report any suspected cases of Hendra virus to Biosecurity Queensland and most importantly, to take appropriate precautions when handling any sick horse.
Fruit trees are flowering at the moment and there is a lot of flying fox activity. Horse owners are reminded that they should not place feed or water under trees where flying foxes gather.
