Queensland’s Champion Stallion, Show A Heart, warmed up for a potentially big G1 winning weekend with 3 very impressive victors (from his only 3 starters!) at Doomben on Wednesday.

As the sire of both Woorim and Toorak Toff, Show A Heart will have a second-to-none chance of taking out the $350,000 G1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes in Victoria in a few days time but got the ball rolling early in his home state of Queensland midweek.

Opening the account for Glenlogan Park’s headline sire was the Patinack owned Strip Show – a horse that Nathan Tinkler bred himself when he sent his mare Strip to Show A Heart in 2007.

An obviously progressive style of horse, Strip Show displayed a dashing turn of foot as he careered away from his opposition at what was only his 2nd lifetime start, and there is little doubt that he has a terrific future in front of him.

The next cab off the rank for Show A Heart was the Rob Heathcote trained Bribie.

A full brother to the outstanding Group winner Woorim, Bribie was second up from a spell and gave nothing else a look in as he stepped up to the 1200m and bounded away to record an effortless victory.

The stable has long held an exceptional opinion of the son of Show A Heart and they have made no secret of the fact they consider him to have the raw ability to compete at the very highest level.

The third runner, and winner, for Show A Heart on Wednesday was Princess Lyca who really knuckled down to hold off all challengers over the 1650m.

The 4YO mare has always been a model of consistency, having won or placed in 7 of her 15 starts, and thoroughly deserved her city victory.

SHOW A HEART is the last remaining Star Kingdom line stallion still consistently producing stakes winners and, therefore, his value to the Australian breeding industry is immeasurable.

His two sons are sure to give a massive sight this weekend in the Rupert Clarke and there are many good judges who consider that only bad luck can stop Woorim gaining his first G1 victory on Saturday.
