ANOTHER GROUP 1 WIN FOR QUEENSLAND
BRADBURY’S LUCK’S outstanding galloper Luckygray claimed his second G1 victory in Perth on Saturday when he careered away with the state’s premier weight-for-age event, the $500,000 G1 Kingston Town Classic at Ascot.
Western Australia’s best middle distance performer, and their current Horse Of The Year, always looked in control of the race after jumping cleanly and taking up a position midfield, one off the fence. Details of the great run here…
Born, bred and raised in Queensland, Luckygray has now raced 18 times for 12 wins and earnings of over $1.7million.
MORE QTIS GLORY
The lucky owners of QTIS horses were chasing $142,000 in bonus prize money this week, spread amongst eleven QTIS races.
In most cases the QTIS bonuses resulted in the doubling of prize money for not just the winner, but the second and third placegetters.
Such extensive bonuses are unique to the Queensland Thoroughbred Incentive Scheme and makes it all the more appealing. It’s terrific that you can be rewarded for placing, not just winning.

HALF THE PROGRAM TO QUEENSLAND
The Queensland winners kept coming this week, again claiming half the program at Eagle Farm.
Choose A Saga took out the first race over 1200m for Real Saga before fellow Glenlogan Park sire Jet Spur had a winner with Heza Jetsetter.

Heza Jetsetter is now heading towards the Magic Millions.

Lyndhurst Stud’s ever consistent stallion, Sequalo produced a winner in Caliente who took out the 3yo Fillies Listed Mode Plate over 1200m worth $64,000. The promising 3yo now has two wins, a second and third from just seven starts with $137, 500 in the bank.
And Craiglea Sire Longhorn rounded out the Brisbane card when his 4yo gelding, Longshoreman took out the KS Easter Group Plate (1200m).
CATERPILLAR RESEARCH
The TBQA has funded $5,500 towards a very important research project regarding the link between processionary caterpillars (Ochrogaster lunifer) and mare’s aborting.
Nigel Perkins, from AusVet and one of the key researchers in the project met with the TBQA committee last week to discuss his findings to date.
Nigel has prepared a report into his research relating to processionary caterpillars on property visits conducted during October & November 2012
Management of processionary caterpillars is relatively easy but you do need to be thorough.
