  ISSUE 211                                               6 March, 2014
Half way through the racing season already and the battle for the QTIS Premiership titles is heating up.
Aimee, (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) by Wattle Brae Stud sire Exceddingly Good, had a clear lead for the 2yo QTIS Runners by Earnings for February, collecting $52,500 in bonus cash for the month. Sarisara, by Eureka Stud’s Champion Stallion Red Dazzler was second after earning $24,500 and Glenlogan Park’s stallion Falvelon sired the third top earner, I Am Boss, who won $10,500 in QTIS bonus prizemoney last month.
That’s resulted in some changes to the 2yo Earnings for the Season. No Problem, by Glenlogan Park sire Real Saga, remains on the top of the table for the second consecutive month with a total of $56,000 in QTIS bonuses. But Aimee has raced into second position with $52,500. She’s pushed former front runners, Celestial Dragon, Setfire to Therain and Stroak into third position. They’ve been joined by Sarisara following her good wins last month.
The progeny of Eureka Stud sire Red Dazzler dominate the 3yo QTIS Runners on Earnings for February with Casarati leading the way after collecting $28,000 in QTIS bonuses over the past four weeks.
Former Wattle Brae sire Court Command’s top runner, Total Authority is second with $24,500 while another former promising Queensland sire, Hotel Grand  claimed third spot thanks to his boom galloper Secret Harmony.
Despite those good efforts, there was no change to the top five positions for 3yo QTIS Runners on Earnings for the season with Queen of the Lochs (Bradbury’s Luck) remaining on top followed by Hot Saga (Real Saga), Bodegra Negra (Hidden Dragon), Londehero (Lonhro) and Spelndora (Jet Spur).
In the Trainer’s categories, Noel Doyle was the top 2yo QTIS Trainer on Earnings for February after banking $52,500 in QTIS bonuses, Peter Fleming was once again runner-up on $30,200 and Rex Lipp rounded out the trifecta for the second consecutive month.
There were three new faces for the 3yo Trainers on Earnings for February. Bruce Hill leads the ladder on $28,000 followed by Paul Facoory with $24,500 and the 2013 QTIS Premiership Winner, Kelly Schweida was third with $17,500.
Another massive week for QTIS Graduates, chasing $169,000 in QTIS bonus prizemoney this week with 11 QTIS races allocated across the State.
I Am Boss (pictured Dan Costello Racing) raced away with $56,500 in prizemoney thanks to the QTIS bonus. If he wasn’t QTIS eligible he would have only collected $32,000 for the win in the $85,000 QTIS 2yo Handicap at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
Londehero also took home $56,500 thanks to the QTIS bonus in the $85,000 QTIS 3yo Handicap at Eagle Farm. In the Sky Rocket banked $17,000 instead of $10,000 thanks to QTIS and $8,500 went to Hit the Road Jack, thanks to a $3,500 boost by QTIS.
The QTIS bonus saw prizemoney increase from $10,000 to $22,000 atTownsville, Rockhampton, Toowoomba, Mackay, the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
And if you’ve been missing all this bonus prizemoney you can change that by purchasing a QTIS yearling from the Magic Millions Sale on the Gold Coast on March 17 & 18.
The TBQA, thanks to the support of Racing Queensland, is giving you a chance to win a QTIS pay-up at the Magic Millions QTIS sale.

All you need to do is come and visit us at the TBQA marquee, just opposite the office on Monday 17th or Tuesday 18th and join the TBQA. All new members will go into the draw for a QTIS pay-up.

But we’re not forgetting about our existing members and the ongoing support you give us. You also have the chance to win a QTIS pay-up as a show of our appreciation.

Again, simply come over to the TBQA marquee, make sure your membership details are up-to-date and you can fill in an entry form. That’s the chance to save up to $990!

Come and join us for our annual ‘Welcome BBQ’ that will be held on Sunday 16th from 4pm in conjunction with Magic Millions. It’s a great time to inspect the yearlings, either before or after the BBQ and it provides a relaxed social occasion to network.

Good luck to all the vendors at the sale, I hope you get good prices for your yearlings but remember – always be prepared to meet the market. And best of luck to the buyers, I hope you find great success with your purchase when it hits the track.
