Thankyou QLD breeders for the latest. An extremely sad week as we lost another highly respected jockey, Desiree Gill.


2009 QTIS Sale graduate, Buffering is headed to Perth to chase three straight wins at racing’s elite level following his outstanding all the way in Saturday’s $1 million VRC Sprint Classic (1200m) at Flemington.
Sent out as a drifting double figure chance despite a breakthrough win in the Manikato Stakes at his previous run, Buffering made all in a tough on speed performance.
Having now won two Group One events, Buffering will head west to the Winterbottom Stakes in a quest for three following Saturday’s three quarter length victory.
Queensland-bred, star miler Boban rounded out a faultless campaign when he rattled home to win Saturday’s $1 million Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington.
The win capped a successful four day carnival for Chris Waller – the Rosehill record breaker rounding out the week with another feature winner as well as the award for leading trainer.
Sent out the favourite after a stunning win in the Moonga Stakes at Caulfield, Boban produced another determined performance to beat home in form gallopers Smokin’ Joey and Speediness.
“The way he is racing he might get 2000 metres, but we will just take one step at a time and take him through a weight-for-age path in the autumn because there are plenty of nice races at home for him.”
“Having had a taste for it at this carnival, the Cox Plate sounds pretty enticing,” Waller added.
Bred by the Thomas family of Greendale Lodge, Boban was sold through the Millbrook draft at the Gold Coast Magic Millions Sale.

SHOW A HEART’S wonderful prizemoney earner, Black Cash, defied a big weight and a torrid run in transit to claim a terrific victory in the $100,000 Subzero Challenge at Flemington on Oaks Day.
Trained out of the Gold Coast by Kelly Doughty, Black Cash has been one of their real stable favourites for many years and Thursday’s wonderful victory has only deepened those feelings of affection.
Having now won or placed in 16 of his 28 starts, the son of Show A Heart has reaped in over $425,000 for his connections with the promise of plenty more to follow judging by this gutsy performance.
An incredible $175,000 in QTIS bonus prizemoney was available for savvy QTIS owners this week with 15 2 year old and 3 year old QTIS races programmed across Queensland.
It was ‘Cup Fever’ on Tuesday, when six QTIS races were programmed and lucky owners had a shot at winning a total of $32,000 in QTIS bonuses at Doomben, the Gold Coast, Cairns, Charleville, Kumbia and Mt Isa.
The QTIS bonus has a considerable impact on prizemoney; on the country circuit first prize jumps from $3,300 to $6,800 while second and third placings double.
And it’s more than double your winnings for Provincial races, with first place general prizemoney $6,500 but that soars to $15,000 if you have a QTIS horse, it jumps from $2,000 to $4,300 for second and $1,000 to $2,200 for third.
While for metropolitan Saturday winners the $32,000 first prize soars to $56,500, second jumps from $10,000 to $17,000 and third from $5,000 to $8,500. Setfire to Therain, Storming Pleasure and Wicked Temptation this weekend’s 2yo QTIS winners.

Eliza Park sire, Monashee Mountain’s boom two year old, Setfire to Therain (pictured Dan Costello Racing) has made it two from two.
The filly collected another $56,500 QTIS cash on Saturday when she easily accounted for her opposition in the $85,000 QTIS 2yo Fillies Hcp 1000m at Eagle Farm.
Jockey Tim Bell has piloted the promising sprinter to both victories for trainer Darren Bell. The QTIS star has now collected $113,000 from just two starts and will be one to keep an eye on.
And Queensland’s Champion Stallion, Show a Heart has done it again with 4yo mare Miss Mega Herz taking out the Coca Cola Amatil Hcp (1000m) on Saturday.
Trained by Patrick Sexton, Miss Mega Herz has now recorded six wins, a second and a third from thirteen starts.
The TBQA Committee would like to express their condolences to the sad passing of Gympie jockey, Desiree Gill.
45 year old Desiree died following injuries suffered in a race fall at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club on Saturday night.
Desiree was well know to many TBQA members and was  a highly experienced and respected jockey who always had time to help younger jockeys, and anyone else in the industry.
She was an highly respected rider, with her career spanning thirty years and she won the 2011/12 and 2012/13 South-East Queensland Country Premiership Jockey of the Year amongst her many career achievements.
Desiree is survived by her husband Barry and two sons.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
