Thankyou as always to the !


The Brisbane Bloodstock Hopeful Plate showcased plenty of talented Queensland-bred two year olds on Toowoomba’s new Strathayr Grass Track on New Years Eve.
But it was Ramblin’ Daisy (pictured with connections), by Oaklands Stud sire All Bar One, who won the $75,000 event over Eureka Stud’s Red Dazzler filly Sarisara and Jumbo Prince, son of Clear Mountain Fairview sire, Outback Prince was a close third.
Ramblin’ Daisy jumped straight to the front and was just too quick and managed to hold off a late charge by Sarisara to win by a short neck with Jumbo Prince motoring home from near last.
”I wish I was John Singleton, I would shout the bar,” said a delighted part-owner Philip Kouvelis after the Canberra mare Rose Of Falvelon (pictured, Mark Evans) swept to victory in the Become an ATC Sponsor Handicap (1100m) at Canterbury on Saturday.
Rose Of Falvelon, by one of Glenlogan Park’s top sire Favelon,  has barely put a foot wrong in her nine starts with yesterday’s effort taking her tally of wins to five.
“The horse was fantastic and beautifully presented at the races today and the best part of all the jockey (Glyn Schofield) did everything we told him to. He was in a perfect position on the turn and we just went away with the race. It was awesome,” Kouvelis said.
The success of Queensland-bred runners continues, with five winners at Doomben’s eight event program on Saturday.
Raheen Stud sire, Stromberg Carlson has claimed another victory through his consistent mare Secret Garden (pictured, Dan Costello Racing).
 The 5yo, trained by Paul Nolan Jnr, claimed her seventh win from 28 starts in the Grinders Coffee Hcp (2200m). She’s now amassed more than $171,000 in prizemoney.
Glenlogan Park was already celebrating the good win by Rose of Falvelon at Canterbury when they scored a race to race double.
Jet Spur’s 4yo gelding Black Jet took out the 1630m Carlton Draught Plate before Falvelon mare, 5yo Miss Liebert scored a good win in the Coca-Cola 1350m.
Eliza Park then stepped up to the plate in the Mittys Hcp (110m) when Larry Cassidy put in a perfect ride on Bymonashee to get the chocolates.
Plaintree Farm’s top stallion, Conatus rounded out the successful day for Queensland when Darlin’ Jules saluted in the 1200m Channel 7 Hcp.
The QTIS bonus prizemoney is flowing like champagne as we race into the New Year.
Last week there were nine QTIS races across the State with a total of $85,000 in bonuses up for grabs.
Prizemoney was more than doubled at Townsville, Beaudesert, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich and Warwick where the first prize purse jumped from $6,500 to $15,000 thanks to QTIS, the horses that ran in second collected $4,300 rather than $2,000 and the QTIS eligible runners who placed third took home $2,200 instead of $1,000.
QTIS bonus worth $5,000 were snapped up on the country circuit at Taroom, Mareeba and Calliope.
The QTIS winners this week include Sequonis, Cardician, Miss Chinchilla, Western Maizcay, Ruby Soho, La Tenza, Screaming Jet and Redoute’s Power.

Neil Jenkinson is thrilled to be the latest owner to collect the Queensland Fillies Sales Bonus Incentive.
He scored the $5,000 credit thanks to the good win by Screaming Jet in the 3yo Maiden Plate on the Sunshine Coast on Boxing Day.
Jenkinson is keen to take up the bonus towards the purchase of a Queensland-bred filly at the 2014 March QTIS Sale.
“I never hesitate in buying a filly,” said Jenkinson.
“I think they have great results and are proven at the top level. I purchased a really good filly at the March Sale, Splendora (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) and she goes fantastic.”
Jenkinson has praised Racing Queensland, Magic Millions and the TBQA for the Fillies Bonus initiative.
“I think it’s a terrific scheme and I hope it gets more people to the sale to support Queensland breeding and fillies.”
Saturday’s impressive BJ McLachlan Stakes winner Unencumbered has extended his lead in the latest order of entry for the upcoming $2 million Jeep Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m).
The Bjorn Baker prepared youngster has now earned $323,850 in race prizemoney and leads Sheer Style ($171,500), Oakleigh Girl ($143,500), Stroak (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) ($94,000) and Geromayo ($75,000) in the race to clinch a berth in Queensland’s richest race.
Meanwhile, Sweet Idea continues to lead the order of entry for the $1 million Gold Coast Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m).
In form Queensland filly Enquare has jumped to fourth on the list after her run of top form continued with success in Saturday’s Vo Rogue Stakes at Doomben.
Both million dollar events will be joined by six other Magic Millions graduate exclusive races to be run at the Gold Coast on January 11.
Australia’s most expensive and controversial young thoroughbred, known affectionately as ”Jimmy”, (pictured, Brendan Esposito) has lost his battle with the crippling foot injury laminitis.
Just before midday on Sunday, all parties involved, including the insurance underwriters, agreed that the $5 million younger half-brother to world champion sprinter Black Caviar would be euthanised on humane grounds.
The Thoroughbred Breeders Queensland Association Committee would like to wish all our members a very safe, prosperous and Happy New Year.

We have seen plenty of positive in the Queensland racing industry over the past twelve months, and the TBQA will be working hard in 2014 to continue those improvements.
Good luck with all your plans for the new year and thank you for your ongoing support.
