Topline stable update

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


What a fantastic month September has been, not only have we had the excitement of the return of

the spring feature races of the spring carnival and the quality of racing that comes with it but on a

personal note Topline Thoroughbreds have certainly had a month to remember! September has

seen a return to the track of a number of the Topline graduates from last year’s purchases now as

three year olds making their mark as they work through full racing preparations. It has also been an

exciting month for the fact that is has provided us with an indication of the quality of young horses

that have been selected and syndicated this year, including our first two year old to make it to the

trials this season already in Deflection.


On top of all that September has been the month for Topline Thoroughbreds to claim our very first

winner in Rossarita and furthermore our first metropolitan winner with Amarachi. Both of whom look

to have very bright racing futures ahead.


After two convincing trial performances on her home track, a 1200m maiden at Nowra was

identified as the perfect race for Rossarita to make her debut and she certainly didn’t miss her

opportunity to make her mark. After a lovely ride from jockey Brenton Avdulla to put her into the

race Rossarita still had some work to do in the straight but showed just how big her heart is when

she dug deep to charge home and claim victory on the line, beating home far older and more

seasoned horses than her. The win not only demonstrating her courage but also showed maturity

beyond her position as well as an impressive turn of foot. A great win and certainly one that will be

remembered for a long time.


Amarachi headed to the races on the back of a sharp trial win when she headed to Canterbury for a

1250m three year old fillies maiden. In a field that was saturated in potential from Sydney’s leading

stables, Amarachi started a clear outsider in the betting but didn’t let that phase her when she flew

home down the outside to snatch victory from her more favoured rivals in the shadows of the

winning post. A very impressive victory in her first run back this preparation but what made it all the

more exciting was the fact that she showed she still has plenty of improvement in her before we

really start to see what she is capable of.


September was also the platform for Ready To Fly’s first full racing preparation and he was unlucky

not to claim victory himself when narrowly beaten at Goulburn showing his owners a glimpse of the

talent that he has in store. Sakhero is also well and truly into his first full racing preparation where

he has shown continued improvement at each of his starts and we are very confident that it won’t

be too long before we see these boys break through to claim their first wins.

We would like to extend a big congratulations to the owners of both Rossarita and Amarachi for

their wins this month and also like to thank Grahame and his staff, as well as Brenton who have put

the effort in to provide Topline with such fantastic results in such a short time.




AMARACHI (Lonhro / Our Lady Grace filly)

Amarachi has pulled up well from her first up win and has taken natural improvement from the run.

Grahame has nominated her for a 3yo fillies benchmark 70 handicap over 1200m at Warwick Farm

on Wednesday 10th October.


MAKE A CHOICE (Choisir / Western Passage filly)

Make A Choice had her first official trial at Randwick this week where she showed great gate speed

and acceleration to finish the trial off strongly under a comfortable hold. Grahame will now decide

whether she requires an additional trial or to send her straight to the races.


READY TO FLY (More Than Ready / Joy Of Flight gelding)

Ready To Fly had a strong first full racing campaign where he showed glimpses of the ability that

he possesses and was unlucky not to notch up his first win. He has been sent to the paddock for a

well-earned rest and no doubt he will be a much stronger and more focused horse when he returns

next preparation.


ROSSARITA (Testa Rossa / La Favorita filly)

Rossarita turned in a fantastic performance to break her maiden status on debut and backed it up

with a tough performance at Wyong when jumping up in class, to narrowly miss out on a place

second up. Rossarita unfortunately jarred up on the hard surface and has since gone for a spell to

allow her time to develop further.


SAKHERO (Danzero / Sakhalin gelding)

Sakhero has continued to develop and improve over in his last couple of starts and at this stage

Grahame will look to send him to a 1900m 3yo maiden at Canterbury on the 17th October. The

added distance and the addition of a set of blinkers will further Sakhero s cause next start.


ZINEDINE (Zizou / Elclectus filly)

Zinedine remains in the paddock and is approximately half way through her recuperation. She will

have another month or so in the paddock at which time she will be assessed for a possible return.


MISS FEARLESS (Snitzel / Uneasy filly)

Miss Fearless has shown plenty of potential in her recent time in the stable and had worked all the

way through to the trial stage of her first preparation. She has since gone to the paddock to allow

her to further develop.




OCTARAJA (Lonhro / Lady Helissio filly)

Now officially named, Octaraja has been making big progress during her current preparation and

will shortly be ready for a trial. An outstanding type, she is physically very forward and has been

impressive in her early work.


DEFLECTION (Choisir / Baffled colt)

Deflection progressed right through to a trial in his first preparation where he turned in a solid

performance against a very sharp field of juveniles. He has since returned to the paddock for a well

earned break to give him further time to mature. We can’t wait for his return to work.


QUARTZITE (Exceed And Excel / Rondavel colt)

This colt continues to improve in his current preparation and really looks to be a jump and run type.

It shouldn’t be too long before we see this fella at the trials and possibly stepping out to the races.


Unnamed (Northern Meteor / Sicile filly)

This filly has been working through her grades in at Grahame’s Randwick stables and continues to

develop into a lovely forward type. She has been working at three quarter pace and quickening over

the final 400m of her track gallops. We look forward to seeing her at the trials shortly.

Continuing to impress with her work this filly has certainly stepped up to the plate and will shortly

heading to the trial. A cracking daughter of Champion sire Fastnet Rock this filly is just putting it all

together in fine fashion. We are extremely happy with how she is progressing and look forward to

seeing her at the races shortly.

This filly has just been listed for syndication and will be trained by Bjorn Baker at Warwick Farm.
