North Queensland trainer Roy Chillemi (pictured) has figured prominently in the 2yo QTIS Trainers Permiership for May, earning $13,700 for the month.
But he hasn’t been able to bump the leading trainer Peter Flemming off his perch. Peter earned another $19,200 in QTIS bonus prizemoney in May and remains the leading 2yo trainer.
In the 3yo QTIS category, Olivia Cairns was the dominant trainer for May, winning $10,500 for the month with Matthew Reardon and Tony Gollan close behind her.
It wasn’t enough to knock Tony Gollan from the top of the overall season figures for the 3yos and he maintains a clear lead from Tony Sears and John Dann.
Craiglea Cruz (pictured) was once again the clear leader for top 2yo QTIS performers in May, earning a handy $19,200 QTIS bonus cash for the month.
My Boy Brando, Dazzle On and Royal Finish rounded out the top four, all taking home more than $10,000 extra prizemoney.
In the 3yo division, Isis Devil only just came home in front, collecting $8,000 in QTIS cash, while seven other gallopers sit on equal second after earning $7,000 in bonus prizemoney.
It was a whopping week for QTIS bonus races, with $149,000 in extra prizemoney available.
There were 15 QTIS races held across the state this week, with substantial prizemoney offered on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, in Rockhampton, Townsville and Toowoomba.
QTIS bonuses were also on offer at various country meetings, including Gatton, Mount Isa, Injune, Goondiwindi and Gayndah.
A total of $111,600 was shared between the QTIS eligible winners and placegetters, in most cases more than doubling their prizemoney.
The lucky winners were Decillion, Hot Aunty, Simon Bon Rocket, Four Jays, Tisani Tomso, Princess Cinders, Covert Chamour, Laredo, Grand Suite, Sovereign Spider and Erebus.

Home-grown sweetheart Missy Longstocking (pictured Dan Costello Racing) has had a busy season but she looked fresh as a daisy when earning her fourth stakes win in Saturday’s $100,000 Listed Ambassador Travel Hampden Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm.
Ridden by Damian Browne for Eagle Farm-based trainer Liam Birchley, Missy Longstocking won quite cosily over the fast finishing Enquare who was a neck to the good of his stablemate Jet Down On It.
Bred by Annecy Bloodstock and raced by Judith Clairs, Missy Longstocking, by Champion Lyndhurst Stud sire, Sequalo, was purchased for $7,500 at the 2011 Magic Millions National Weanling sale.
Bradbury’s Luck is on the front-cover of the TBQA Stallions Book (pictured) that was mailed to breeders last week and he chimed in with two milestones on Saturday.
The Glenlogan Park resident sired She Can Skate to a Listed victory in the $120,000 A R Creswick Stakes at Flemington before Fascia posted his 300th Australian win at Cairns.
She Can Skate (3f Bradbury’s Luck – Caniona by Canny Lad) jumped straight to the front down the straight course and did best in a blanket finish at headquarters.
“She was my first city winner last month,” trainer Geoff Wheeler said. “Now she has given me a stakes win as well. It’s amazing!”
Raheen Stud sire, Publishing (pictured) continues to show top form with his progeny recording consitent wins around the country.
His latest winner was Print Money, in the Centrebet Handicap (1200m) at Morphettville on Saturday.
It was the first win for the Jon O’Connor trained gelding, thanks to a perfect ride by Todd Pannell, who took a sit after jumping well from barrier two and then surged home from the 400m to win by 1.3 lengths.
Print Money has now collected $30,750 from a win and a second in just five starts.
Saint Thomas became the second son of Danehill to open his sire account this week when Threescoreandten won at the Gold Coast on Saturday.
Threescoreandten (2f Saint Thomas – Knight’s Emotion by Sunday Knight) led from barrier-to-box for a half-length victory in the Eximer Led Maiden Hcp (900m). She is trained locally by Barry Bowditch who doubles up as sales manager for Magic Millions.
Five Dynasties (USA) had added his name to the list of Danehill sons to sire a winner in Australia when Starlight Dynasty scored at Warwick last Saturday, June 1.
One-time Queensland shuttler Southwestern Heat (USA) sired his first winner at Gatton on Monday.
Hot Aunty (2f Southwestern Heat – Aunty Tobys by Breakfast Creek) broke through at her fifth start in the Lockyer Farm Machinery Maiden (1100m).
The QTIS qualified filly jumped straight to the front and kept finding under Cecily Eaton to win by over a length.
Gatton trainer Sel Andrew and his family have raced three generations of the filly’s family. She’s a direct descendant of Lyndhurst Stud filly Meanmi Shadow (Lysander) who won the 1972 Queensland Oaks.
