Another phenomenal week for QTIS owners with $187,000 in QTIS bonus prizemoney available on eleven races across the State.
3yo Missing Page (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) was the big money winner, collecting $56,500 in the $85,000 QTIS 3yo Hcp at Eagle Farm on Saturday. That’s a nice $24,500 QTIS bonus for owners.
Roma Cup Day was a grand affair with a $30,000 QTIS only race for three year olds. Mythologist raced away with $19,200, Chills got $6,000 for second place and $3,000 to Just As Sweet for third.
Eagle Farm’s mid-week meeting offered $27,000 in prizemoney thanks to the $17,000 QTIS bonus and the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Rockhampton, Townsville all had $22,000 QTIS races which saw first, second and third prize money at all venues more than double; from $6,500 to $15,000 for the winner, $2,000 to $4,300 for second and $1,000 to $2,200 for third.
Just a week after Lyndhurst Stud sire, Sequalo recorded a winner in Singapore, his barn mate, Hidden Dragon (pictured) has followed suit.
Three year old gelding, Master Dragon took out the S$55,000 Any Humor (1200m) in Singapore on Sunday night.
Then the following day another Hidden Dragon came close to getting the money when Befledged placed third in the Selangor Turf Club (Malaysia) over 1200m.
Back on home turf, the Champion Sire has also had a tremendous start to the racing season. He currently sits third on both tables for Queensland’s Leading Sire for Winners and Earnings with 110 starts for 26 winners, including one Stakes winner and collecting a total $842,575 in prizemoney.
Lyndhurst Stud sire, Sequalo has done it again.
His 5yo mare, Golden Trinkets (pictured Dan Costello Racing) taking out the Bussini Transport Open Fillies and Mares Handicap at Eagle Farm on Saturday.
The recent rain provided perfect conditions for the wet tracker who lead all the way in the 1000m dash and passed the post first for Toowoomba duo Richie Stephenson and Ruby Ride.
Golden Trinkets has now had nine wins from 33 starts and collected over $159,000 in prizemoney.
And Missing Page is proving to be one to watch.
The Kelly Scheida trained filly won the $85,000 QTIS Go Broncos 3yo Handicap over 1000m on Saturday.
Chris Munce settled the filly mid field before making his charge from the 400m and dashing to victory over Vienna Queen.
Missing Page is by Eliza Park sire Monashee Mountain and now lays claim to three wins from four starts.
Racing Queensland (RQ) in conjunction with the National Jockeys Trust has established a fund in honour of jockey Desiree Gill.
Desiree tragically passed away on Sunday, November 10, from injuries sustained in a race fall the night before at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club.
RQ CEO Darren Condon said Desiree’s family would decide in the next few weeks as to how the funds would be used.
Mr Condon said $20,000 in prizemoney from the two races abandoned following the fall at Saturday’s meeting would also be donated to the fund.
Race meetings in Queensland on Saturday at Eagle Farm, Gold Coast, Julia Creek, Clermont and Roma and at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday all included a race in Desiree’s honour.
RQ is continuing to offer ongoing support and counselling for all jockeys, trainers, staff and racegoers.
A stewards investigation into Saturday’s Maiden Handicap at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club is ongoing.
A fantastic result for the Paris Turkington Trust Fund Dinner.
280 people attending the evening at Toowoomba Turf Club, where they were entertained by legendary trainer Peter Moody.
There was also a highly anticipated auction that included trips to the Cox Plate, Stradbroke Day, Magic Millions and various racing memoribilia.
The evening raised over $75,ooo for Paris Turkington. The 17 year old daughter of Wattle Brae Stud owners Gary and Phoebe Turkington was severely burned at a BBQ in August.
Paris was in intesive care until last month and now has two years of living in a body suit and undergoing daily rehabilitation at the Brisbane Burns Unit. The family has moved to Brisbane for Paris’ recovery and are travelling back and forth to the Stud, just outside of Toowoomba.
