GRAB YOUR QTIS CASH
$235,000 worth of QTIS bonus prizemoney was on offer across 15 races this week.
$34,500 was not claimed because non-eligible horses won or placed in various events but that certainly leaves plenty of happy QTIS connections out there this week.
Rockhampton hosted two $50,000 QTIS races as part of their Winter Carnival with prizemoney ranging from $32,000 for the winner down to $1,000 for fifth.
Denarius (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) won the $27,000 2yo C&G Maiden Plate at Doomben on Wednesday and had his prizemoney boosted to $18,050 thanks to the QTIS bonus.
Bush Caviar continued to impress when taking out the $24,000 QTIS 3yo BM 70 Hcp at Ipswich on Friday while Bimbiarra raced away with $15,000 up from just $6,500 thanks to the QTIS bonus in Toowoomba on Saturday.
And there’s plenty of similar scenarios right around the State thanks to QTIS.
Make sure you register your rising 2yo by June 30th so that you don’t miss out on the QTIS cash next season.
ROCKHAMPTON WINTER CARNIVAL CONCLUDES
FOR the first time in 30 years, local horses are the toast of Callaghan Park after winning the elusive Newmarket-Rockhampton Cup double.
Our Boy Malachi, who wasn’t even meant to be in the Carnival, held off raiders from right across the Sunshine State to claim the $75,000 XXXX Gold Newmarket (1300m) on the penultimate day of the Rockhampton Winter Racing Carnival.

In doing so, the five-year-old trained by John O’Sing and owned by Col Donovan and a syndicate of his family and friends, took his career record to 12 wins from 14 starts.

Not to be outdone, Rockhampton’s new racing hero Vandalised, (pictured with connections – Darryn Nufer) came from a seemingly impossible near last under the guidance of Brad Stewart, weaving his way through a wall of horses to snatch the $100,000 Inspirations Paint Rockhampton Cup (1600m) on the post.

It was the most fitting of ways for the curtain to fall on the carnival for 2014.
