As the breeding season fast approaches, the Queensland runners said it all today, winning over half the card at Doomben.
The maroon blitz started with the 3 year olds in race 4 over 1200m when I’m Cool ran home well for Falvelon.
All Bar One notched a winner for Oaklands stud in the very next race when Solebird flew home and broke Bradbury Chocolate’s (by Bradbury’s Luck) record of seven wins from seven starts.
His Glenlogan Park barn-mate Show A Heart then scored a winner in the following event with Norocos storming home for Toowoomba trainer Norm Hilton.
Lyndhurst Stud’s top class Sequalo gelding, Bold Glance, (pictured courtesy Dan Costello Racing) returned to his best form at his third run back since a throat operation, winning the Mt Franklin Hcp 1350m.
While Glenlogan Park was in the winners circle for the third time after D’Jet, but Jet Spur, saluted in the last of the day, the 4yo & up Racing Retro Hcp over 1200m.
It was another big day for Glenlogan Park, with Show A Heart racing away in the Queensland Champion Sire Stakes following another good winner at Caulfield.
The Brian Cavanough trained Prince Pedro took out the 3yo Murray Fairclough Hcp over 1400m.
Prince Pedro has now won four straight, with a total of six wins, two seconds and a third from just eleven starts and collecting over $93,000 in prizemoney.
And Willowbend Stud sire Nothing to Lose will feature on Sky Racing program Bred to Win that will air on the 4th and 5th of August.

The Central Queensland Thoroughbred Breeders Association hosts a stallion tender to assist with our annual sale and sale race series costs. This year’s offering incorporates some proven sires with winning progeny and some very well bred sires whose progeny are as yet untested.

If any breeders are looking to take advantage of the generous offers made by our supporting studs then don’t hesitate to contact us at www.cqtba.com or telephone 0427229033.
Tenders close August 8th 2012 so please don’t delay in lodging your offer.
We would really like to thank the studs that have supported us this year and in the past. Ours is a country based association and we have one of the few remaining sales held in Country Queensland. We are strictly a not for profit association and all of our funds are channelled back into the racing industry.
It is indeed a credit to our supporters, studs and tenderers alike, that they are prepared to give us a fair go to keep the breeding and general racing industry very much alive in our little part of rural and provincial Queensland.
– Regards, Jeff Leaver, CQTBA
Eliza Park has announced that highly respected industry professional, Robyn Wise, will join its nominations team as Queensland representative.

A born and bred Queenslander, Robyn is the daughter of Murray and Betty-Ann Wise, who established Bahram Stud, one of the leading thoroughbred nurseries in the state.

Growing up around horses and having gained extensive experience in Europe and North America, Robyn was yearling manager at Emirates Park in NSW for five seasons before joining Eliza Park in Victoria in its formative years.

Returning to Queensland, Robyn acquired her own property and is now one of the nation’s most successful vendors, having prepared – on behalf of clients – a wave of top class performers including Viva Pronto, Hollowlea, Honest Truth, Al Dhafra and Hidden Kisses.

“We’re delighted to have someone with Robyn’s experience and reputation to take up the reins for us in Queensland,” Eliza Park’s Nominations Manager, Mark Lindsay, points out. “We have secured one of the state’s finest farms, we have a tremendous roster with newcomers, Love Conquers All and Pressday, along with Champion Sire, Written Tycoon and Group One producing sire, Monashee Mountain, and now we have a ‘go-to’ person in Queensland that understands the local industry and the requirements of broodmare owners.”

Robyn Wise is taking up her new role immediately and can be contacted on 0419 174 632.
