FIVE FROM EIGHT FOR                         QUEENSLAND
It     was yet another outstanding performance by     Queensland-bred runners at Doomben on Saturday,     winning five of the eight events.
Eureka   Stud sire, Red Dazzler’s 2yo filly, Sarisara     continued on her winning way  taking out the   $85,000 QTIS 2yo Powerade Hcp (1110m). The Rex Lipp trained filly has now had two wins and a   second from just three starts.Agitate,  (pictured,   Dan Costello Racing) by Lyndhurst Stud’s    Champion Sire Sequalo, followed up in the very   next with a very easy win in the Canadian Club Hcp   over 1020m.
6yo  gelding by Glenlogan Park sire Falvelon,   Excellantes, jumped well in the Coke Zero Hcp   (1200m). He left all challengers behind when he                               was asked to go at the top of the straight to  record his eighth win from 34 starts and take his  earnings to over $500,000.
Wattle  Brae’s consistent sire, Court Command notched    another winner. Total Authority jumped well and  sat second before running down Choose A Saga in Coca Cola  Amatil Hcp over 1200m.
And    Buakaw rounded out the day for the Queenslanders   when the 4yo Dance Hunter gelding came from wel   back in the field to get up in the last few bounds     in the Mt Franklin Hcp 1350m.
NEED ANOTHER REASON TO                         BUY A QTIS HORSE?
There’s                               plenty of reasons to consider a QTIS yearling at                               the Magic Millions Sale on March 17 and 18 and the                               main one is the massive increase in prizemoney                               QTIS races offer.
This                               week alone the QTIS bonuses saw an extra $156,000                               distributed across ten races.
That                               boosted the prizemoney to $85,000 on the 2yo and                               3yo QTIS races at Doomben on Saturday with the                               winner racing away with $56,500 compared to just                               $24,000 for a non-QTIS horse.
2yo                               Red Dazzler filly Sarisara (pictured, Dan                               Costello Racing) has now collected $113,000                               in the past three weeks thanks to her two                               metropolitan QTIS wins.
And                               the QTIS bonus is spread to the first three                               placegetters, not just for the winner like most of                               the other incentive schemes.
Provincial                               meetings like the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast,                               Toowoomba, Beaudesert, Rockhampton and Ipswich                               have their prizemoney more than doubled from                               $10,000 to $22,000 thanks to QTIS with the winner                               collecting $15,000 rather than $6,500 and second                               and third placegetters earnings more than doubled                               from $2,000 to $4,300 and $1,000 to $2,200.
FIRST WINNER BY                         FURIO
Furio                               sired his first winner when Nui Dat sprang a $26                               upset at Yarra Glen on Australia Day.
Nui                               Dat (4g Furio – Sistine Sensation by Perugino) won                               the Grape Grazing Maiden (1205m) for part-owner                               and trainer Charlie Quick. He led them up and                               lasted long enough to score by a nose first-up                               after a six month spell.
Furio                               (Testa Rossa) was bred and raced by Dorrington                               Farm owner Rob Crabtree and he won four races up                               to Listed level in the 2006 Star Track Express                               Stakes at Flemington.
He                               originally stood at Sutket Farm on the Bellarine                               Peninsula east of Geelong before relocating to                               Kensington Park in North Queensland.
