Another big weekend for Glenlogan Park with a winning treble, including a State-to-State double for their poster boy, Bradbury’s Luck.
His ever-consistent daughter, Fire Up Fifi (pictured Dan Costello Racing) earned a spell with another feature race win under her belt after taking out the listed Centenary Classic Mile (1600m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
The five-year-old grey mare held out gallant last start Eyeliner Stakes winner Conservatorium to win by a short neck – her 11th wins from just 29 starts.
Trainer Robert Heathcote said Fire Up Fifi would head to the paddock before coming back for a run in Sydney and then on to Melbourne where her major mission will be the Group One Myer Classic.
Goldslick didn’t disappoint for Bradbury’s Luck, taking out the 4yo and up Mares Eugene Gorman Handicap (1410m) at Flemington on Saturday.
Discreet rounded out the treble for Glenlogan Park. By their other Champion Sire, Show A Heart, Discreet won the Hardy Brothers Jewellers 3yo Hcp (1200m).

Full story here…

Exceedingly Good (pictured) has another first crop 2-year-old winner to his credit, following the emphatic victory of He Don’t Care in a 1200-metre maiden staged on the Sunshine Coast.
Having the third outing of his career, He Don’t Care turned his latest assignment into a one-horse affair. Taken straight to the lead soon after breaking from the stalls, the speedy son of Exceedingly Good dictated the terms throughout the contest and surged away from his opposition in the straight.
The official winning margin of the juvenile event proved to be no fewer than 13 lengths.
There was $143,000 worth of QTIS bonus prizemoney on offer this week.
$80,000 was up for grabs for eligible QTIS horses in the 3yo Handicap at Eagle Farm on Saturday which was taken out by Discreet, winning a cool $53,000 thanks to the QTIS bonus.
The bonus prizemoney was spread right across the state with more than $20,000 to be won at the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Townsville, Rockhampton and Ipswich.
The QTIS bonuses are also proving a boon for country areas, with more than $10,000 on offer in country programs this week including at Alpha, Roma, McKinlay, Eidsvold, Charters Towers, Atherton and Beaudesert.
The winners of the bonus cash this week were Little Miss Molly, Shekou, Choose a Saga, Hotel Paradiso, Sippin’bundy, Lotto Hill, Just Watcher, Discreet (pictured Dan Costello Racing), Silver River and Kana Aka.
Unlike most incentive schemes, the QTIS bonus pays right back to third place and this week $110,200 was won, with the remaining $32,800 to be reallocated to future QTIS events.
There was another impressive winner for the ill-fated Lucas Bloodstock sire, Nothing to Lose.
4yo, Venture On (pictured Dan Costello Racing) stormed home from midfield to just win (.2 length) the AM Giles and Co Benchmark 85 (1400m).
The Brian Smith trained gelding has now had five wins, a second and two thirds from just 15 starts and is one of the most consistent performers by Nothing to Lose.
