WILLOWBEND’S QTIS DOMINANCE
Willowbend Sire, Nothing to Lose, dominated the QTIS 3yo Handicap 1200m on the Sunshine Coast last week, with two of the three placegetters.

Venture On started from barrier fifteen in a sixteen horse race and settled towards the back of field for most of the journey. On the turn he made a move to the outside and showed blistering speed to mow down the leaders, one of those being Epic Terra.
Venture On has now had 6 starts for 3 wins and 1 third while Epic Terra has had 6 starts for 2 wins, 2 seconds and 1 third.
QLD’S INTERNATIONAL SUCCESS
Queensland breeding’s strong influence on overseas racing continued over the weekend when Glenlogan Park’s ultra-consistent sire Bradbury’s Luck came within a whisker of claiming a Singaporean Group One victory.

The Michael Freedman trained 3YO gelding Cash Luck (pictured) draped himself in glory despite just failing to pick up the boom horse Super Easy in the $500,000 G1 Singapore Guineas.
Being asked to resume over the 1600m after returning from a trip to Dubai, Cash Luck tailed the field as they approached the turn but unwound a terrific finishing burst to finish a rapidly closing runner-up.
Upon dismounting, jockey Stephen Baster declared the effort to be “outstanding” and said that a future Group success was certainly on the cards for the promising Bradbury’s Luck youngster.
Cash Luck is now rated one of the most promising horses in Singapore.

TRUSTING COMES TO QLD
The prodigiously talented Trusting (pictured) will stand his first season at stud in Queensland in 2012.
The winner of his only start as a two-year-old, Trusting showcased his huge talent when winning the time-honoured Warwick Stakes (Gr 2, WFA) over 1400m in the blistering time of 1:21.59 on just his third race start.
Trusting then recorded the first of his Group 1 placing’s when runner-up to Denman in the Golden Rose (Gr 1) over 1400m at Rosehill to clearly establish himself as one of the best of a generation that included the likes of So You Think, Denman, Starspangledbanner and Manhattan Rain.
Trusting trained on to win the Chelmsford Stakes (2000m) and Hill Stakes (1600m), both Group 2 races at weight-for-age and he retires with Group 1 placing’s in the Epsom Handicap (1600m), George Main Stakes (1600m), Golden Rose (1400m), Kingston Town Classic (1800m) and Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m), and retires the winner of four races and seven placing’s and earnings of $935,600.
The high-class race record is backed up by the stallion’s pedigree.
His sire Tale Of the Cat (USA) is one of the leading sire sons of the breed-shaper Storm Cat, while his dam Legible is a Group winning daughter of multiple champion sire and broodmare sire Zabeel.
Like successful sires Elusive Quality (USA) and Grand Lodge (USA), Trusting is inbred to influential mare Somethingroyal – through her champion sons Secretariat and Sir Gaylord – and also to Knight’s Daughter, the dam of champion Round Table and ancestress of Tale Of The Cat.
Trusting will join the Patinack Farm roster and will stand for $16,500 (incl gst)
