It was a big weekend for Wattlebrae Stud, with three winners in two days, including a double by Court Command (pictured).
Fifth Column kicked off the celebrations, with an easy win at Ipswich on Friday, while Court’s Sun took out the 3yo Maiden Classic Holiday’s Hcp (1200m) on the Gold Coast on Saturday.
And Hallside Rose, by Exceedingly Good, continues to impress.
The 2yo filly won the QTIS Bruce McLachlan Classic (1200m) collecting $56,500 in the process, thanks to the $24,500 QTIS bonus.
Hallside Rose beat an impressive field, including Choose a Saga, Agitate, Jet Down on It, My Beloved, French Tarte and First Release.
She has now had two wins and a second from just four starts and collected over $90,000 in prizemoney.
Plaintree Farm is once again celebrating thanks to the smart gelding produced by their sire Conatus.
Smakatus (pictured Dan Costello Racing) won the 3yo QTIS Wimmers Soft Drinks Hcp with a powerful finishing burst in the 1000m sprint on Caloundra Cup Day.
Smakatus smacked up $53,000 for the win, thanks to the handy $21,000 QTIS bonus.
The Pat Duff trained 3yo is proving to be very handy, having won three of his eight starts, with one third placing.
Up and coming 2yo Outback Lightning finally lived up to what he has shown in his previous preparations to win the 2yo QTIS Maiden at Eagle Farm.
Ridden by inform apprentice Ashley Butler, Outback Lightning was placed in the box seat and never looked like being beaten.
“I was confident of winning the way he was travelling passing the 600m pole,” said Ash.
Switching off the leaders heels on straightening, Outback Lightning knuckled down and was strong to the line to record a soft win.
Making the win even more impressive, Outback Lightning’s 1200m was the fastest of the day, with the fastest sectionals, bettering the Class 3s over the same journey.
Banchory Lass (pictured) by Sequalo scored an upset win at Eagle Farm in the Coke Zero Maiden Plate over 1400 metres, toppling the $1.50 fav Gold Flow.
The 3YO filly, trained at Eagle Farm by Barry Baldwin, is the ‘lucky last’ and thirteenth foal from Scenic mare, In Camera.
In Camera was a half-sister to the Listed Toowoomba Cup placegetter and multiple winners, Double Duke, trained locally by Richie Stephenson.
During her breeding career, In Camera produced 11 winners and 2 placegetters from thirteen foals to race.
The Right One, winner of 3 races and also trained by Barry Baldwin, has the same happy owners as Banchory Lass.
