Raheen Stud produced 4 of the 8 winners on a landmark day for the Nolan family at Saturday’s Doomben meeting.
ROCKET TO GLORY launched the four-timer with a second sprint success in the space of a fortnight. He was a front-running winner of the Rohrig Group Hcp (1010m) and it took his earnings past a half-million dollars.
Raheen sire, Publishing has sired 9 winners and 8 placegetters in his first-crop and Treasure Map is going right on with the job this season.
TREASURE MAP (pictured – Dan Costello Racing) recorded a narrow victory in the Ambush Security Hcp (1600m). Publishing notched a double on Saturday – he also won a QTIS race with Centrefold Babe for Bundaberg based trainer Mary Hassam.
And rounding our Raheen’s card, Mearas weighed in with a double courtesy of Regular and Anna Lizzie at Doomben.
Unfortunately the Redoute’s Choice stallion died after a sole season at stud in 2008.
Glenlogan Park’s Champion Stallion Show A Heart registered his 19th stakes winner on the weekend, when the very talented Michael Freedman trained 4YO Super Ninetyseven (pictured) easily accounted for his rivals in the $200,000 G3 Singapore Committee’s Prize (1600m).
The Show A Heart gelding was considered most unlucky not to have won at his last two attempts in Group company, where he finished a fast closing runner up on both occasions (in the G2 Singapore 3YO Classic and the G1 Singapore Guineas).
Another big week of bonuses for QTIS owners this week, with $153,000 on offer across 14 races.
There was $85,000 in the QTIS 3yo Handicap at Doomben on Saturday and Treasure Map ran away with $56,500 while $27,000 was available in the 3yo C&G Maiden Plate last Wednesday.
Townsville, Rockhampton, Ipswich and the Sunshine Coast all hosted $22,000 QTIS events and there was $25,000 on offer for QTIS eligible runners at the Gold Coast.
While there were large amounts of QTIS cash being thrown around at the metropolitan and provincial meetings, there was also a bonanza for the country circuit.
QTIS races were held at Thangool, Morven, Mareeba, Charters Towers, Bell and Bedourie.
QTIS winners included Seven Sagas, Mythologist, Appropriation, Sammi Jain (pictured, Dan Costello Racing), Centrefold Babe, Miss Knievel, Treasure Map, Passatorio and Rivers End.
An industry marketing campaign aptly titled We Run As One, will go to market this weekend with messaging aimed to build optimism and collaboration amongst the 30,000 strong racing industry in Queensland.
The campaign breaks new ground by its unique target-market approach. Racing Queensland Chief Executive Officer Darren Condon says the campaign’s approach is to target industry participants rather than the general public en mass.
“We Run As One is a campaign for the industry, by the industry,” Mr Condon said.
“As a collective we need to improve communication and positivity amongst our own people and build faith that our industry is changing for the better.”
The TBQA would like to remind members to support the industry’s Night of Nights – the RQ awards.
The awards will be held at the Tattersall’s Club on Saturday, September 28th from 6.30pm.
Tickets are $150 per person.
If you would like to book contact Racing Queensland – or you can book via their website.
Stan Johnston would like to thank everyone who responded to his call last week for mares.
The Manager of Craiglea Stud said he had an overwhelming number of calls and has a tremendous selection to put to his stallions.
He wants to thank everyone for their generosity.
