Queensland’s Champion Sire, Show A Heart proved why he has his hoof firmly stamped on the title for a fourth consecutive year as the racing season draws to a close.

His promising 3yo, Dayita claimed the Commotion Creative Handicap (1700m) at Flemington on Saturday.
Dayita ($3.60 fav) settled back in the field before quickly making ground around his rivals from the 600 metres.
The Peter Moody trained filly joined the leader, He’s A Steal, before the pair fought out the race over the final 200 metres with Dayita gaining the verdict by a long head. Imoto briefly looked a winning chance but faded late to finish third.
“I followed the other horse (Imoto) into the race,” jockey Luke Nolen said.
“He dragged me where I needed to be but I thought he would take me further.
“I found myself there a long way from home but she’s very resilient.”
The ride provided Nolen with the second leg of a winning double and propelled him to a two-win lead in the race for the 2011-12 Melbourne jockeys’ premiership over Craig Newitt.
In Sydney, Oakland’s ill-fated sire Lion Hunter recorded yet another winner with 3yo filly Matiya’s Pride winning the 3yo&Up F&M Hcp over 1500m.
Glenlogan Park’s winning run down south continued in their own backyard, with an impressive race to race double for at Eagle Farm.
Show A Heart is not only Queensland’s Champion Sire for 2011/12, but is the clear leader in the race for Queensland’s Champion 2yo Sire and the weekend confirmed it.
Show A Nooee (pictured above thanks to Dan Costello Racing) took out the QTIS 2yo Hcp over 1500m.
Damien Browne rode a brilliant race on Show A Nooee, getting the horse to the best part of the track and finishing strongly in the last 100m to over-power favourite Discreet.
Not to be out done, in the very next race, barn-mate Bradbury’s Luck notched up another winner.
Goldslick (pictured Dan Costello Racing) took out the QTIS 3yo Hcp also over 1500m.
Kirk Matheson settled Goldslick midfield before produceding a barnstorming finish from the 400m to finish over the top of Venture On (by Nothing to Lose) 1500m and fellow Bradbury’s Luck 3yo Skater Dude.

A decision on the Artificial Insemination case (Bruce McHugh v. AJC and others) is expected to be released within the next six weeks.
After consulting with Thoroughbred Breeders Queensland it was agreed that the federal body TBA should join the action because we believed it was critical to the interests of the industry to put forward the countervailing views to those of the applicant.
Furthermore, we believe the Australian Thoroughbred industry will be most adversely affected if artificial insemination is introduced. Not only would it jeopardize our international sales and racing, but also it would open the way for a number of long term ramifications. These include the practice of embryo transfer to enable multiple progeny registrations from a mare each season and potentially cloning. Superior pedigreed mares would proliferate the market place. This case is really about the industry having the ability morally and legally to set the rules by which our sport is governed.
But in joining the case, TBA has incurred considerable legal costs, which are not expected to be refunded even if the Judge awards costs against the applicant. At this time, TBA has heavy legal bills and must continue to seek donations from breeders until these expenses are paid.
In requesting donations from Thoroughbred breeders to help pay for TBA’s participation in the case, we devised a fair and equitable formula to determine the recommended amount required from individual donations based on each participant’s involvement within the industry.
Subsequently, a letter was sent by TBA to more than 300 Thoroughbred breeding establishments throughout Australia seeking voluntary donations together with an invoice recommending an amount based on each participant’s involvement with the industry. However, as this amount was only a suggestion, we would be most grateful if you would reconsider an amount which you believe is a fair donation based on your circumstances and involvement within the breeding industry.
Should you decide to donate please do so either in the form of a cheque payable to Thoroughbred Breeders Australia after which we can provide you with a Tax Invoice/Receipt.
Some breeders may not have fared particularly well this year, but if you are able to make a donation, please be assured that it will be very much appreciated and you will be supporting the future of your industry.
Is your mare stakes performed, the dam of a stakes performed horse or is she a multiple city winner?
If so, Lyndhurst Stud have the deal for you – the “2 for 1 Black Type service fee deal.”
Standing four stallions… Sequalo, Hidden Dragon, Drumbeats and Rash Action, Lyndhurst has a horse to suit every breeder and Jeff Kruger is keen to help broodmares with great savings this spring.
Serving smaller books now that he is into his 16th year at stud, Sequalo continues to supply a steady stream of winners – 102 of his sons and daughters winning 166 races this season, amassing over $3.1 million in prize money.
Hidden Dragon has also been in great form of late – 63 winners of 99 races for the season including a double last Saturday and a quartet of winners on Saturday June 9; two-year-old Secret Kiss a 1.3 length winner at her Toowoomba debut, three-year-old Cee The Dragon breaking his maiden by a length at the Gold Coast, Sun Warrior recording his fourth win when saluting by 2.3 lengths at Cairns and Annette’s Pumpkin racing away to a 6.8 length win in the Mallawa Cup.
Second season stallion Drumbeats proved very popular last spring and everyone at Lyndhurst is looking forward to the arrival of his first foals.
A well credentialled three times stakes winner of the Gr.2 Shannon Stakes, the Gr.3 Bill Ritchie Stakes and the Listed Springtime Stakes, Drumbeats is by super sire Redoute’s Choice who is proving quite the sire of sires – already ten of his sons (including the in-form Stratum, Snitzel and Not A Single Doubt) siring stakes winners.
Lyndhurst is also home to Rash Action, a fine sprinter who won no less than 17 races during an outstanding 29 start career. Despite only ever serving small books of mares, the son of the dual Gr.3 winning Star Kingdom line stallion Our Horizon has been doing a great job – to date represented by 22 winners.
