The current Queensland Champion First Season Sire, Red Dazzler, has picked up where he left off with some impressive winners over the past week.
Redsyn finally had some luck and cruised to victory at Doomben, after placing at her last three starts.
Redsyn is the 10th individual winner for Red Dazzler – a resident of Eureka Stud who is a Group One winning son of Red Ransom.
Meanwhile, El Milagro extended his unbeaten run to two when he raced away for a length and a quarter win at Kranji, Singapore on Sunday.
Queensland Sires continue to prove themselves, as the most crucial time of the year approaches – breeding season.

Raheen Stud sire, Stromberg Carlson, has made a bright start to the new season with his progeny putting their best hooves forward.
With just 15 runners since August 1, Stromberg has already been represented by four winners in Australia alone. Another six earned their connections a cheque.
The winning form stretched overseas with a pair of impressive winners in Singapore over the weekend.
Primera Espada and Don’tcallme Uncle were the victorious Kranji pair for trainers Douglas Dragon and Desmond Koh respectively.
Rockhampton-based Merlo Downs Stud’s Freshman sire El Nino
had his first winner in the US on Saturday.

Two year-old colt Senor Rain won on debut at Del Mar by three and a half lengths over 1200m, to become his sire’s first winner from just  two starters.

The colt peeled off very fast sectional times, and took off for a sustained sprint 600m from home to glide easily to the line.
Two year old Filly, Sacred Romance has placed second in 3 consecutive starts since July, leading all the way over the 1100m races, to be just caught on the line, and beating the rest by 6-8 lengths, certainly proving herself a worthy competitor, running the sectionals in brilliant times as well.
And Lyndhurst Stud’s well proven stallions, Hidden Dragon and Sequalo are once again making their mark on the new racing season, with Obsidian Dragon and G’Day Old Mate having impressive wins last Saturday.
