Queensland-bred horses have won three of the six legs of the prestigious Singapore Turf Club Golden Horseshoe Series, with the G2 grand finale event set for this Friday, May 20.
It’s been a series whitewash for the Aussies, with the other three races won by other Australian-bred youngsters.
Not only that, but the Australian-bred youngsters again filled the trifecta in the sixth leg of the series.
Winners so far have been:
QLD R1 and R5: Kaiser (Seidnazar-One Wink) (4 Starts 2-2-0 S$137,890. Sold Inglis Classic $11k, on sold MM 2yo $80k)

Aushorse is holding a function at the Singapore Turf Club in conjunction with the G2 Golden Horseshoe and would encourage breeders to travel to Singapore to attend. Further information can be obtained by emailing Rowena Smith or phoning 02 9663 8477.
G3 winning sprinter Walking or Dancing (Falvelon-Young Vic, by Old Vic) will join the Wattle Brae Stud roster on the Darling Downs , as their freshman sire for 2011.
The 6yo has been retired after recording 8 wins (from 900-1600m) including 2010’s Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) & 2009’s Magic Millions Cup (1400m) for over $610,000 earnings.
“He’ll be terrific for Queensland because Falvelon’s can run as 2yos and that’s important with QTIS,” said Wattle Brae Stud principal Gary Turkington.
“He’s the best Falvelon I’ve seen, very big, good looking with great legs.
“He has a very strong, international dam line with a lot of good current form and he was a great racehorse himself.”
Group performing racehorse and sire, Kenfair, has died at the age of 21 in his paddock at Clear Mountain Fairview.
Kenfair retired as a winner of eight races and had the distinction of winning top class races in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for owners A H & Mrs S M Crossley.
“He was a talented juvenile on the track and his racing ability has been seen on numerous occasions in his progeny,” said Stud Manager, Mick Frappell.
“We all feel privileged to have been involved with a horse with so much talent who was such a great producer.”
Among Kenfair’s Stakes winners are Irish Rollover, Ad Alta, City Fair, Kengrande, Lady of the Turf, Leeza, Rocky Point, She’s Country and St Kentigern.  
Black Caviar may have been the star of the show, but Queensland bred horses certainly shined on BTC Cup Day at Doomben, with Glenlogan Park’s sire Show A Heart once again dominating.

Race 2: Doomben Dash 1010m – Carry the Club (Carry the Flag)
