Glenlogan Park’s winning streak over the Brisbane Winter Carnival continued on Stradbroke Day when quality filly Belle d’Amour cruised home in the listed Lancaster Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm.

Belle d’Amour went into the race as a maiden after four runs – three of which she was placed.

“She’s just had no luck at all. Even at her first start she was unlucky and should have almost beaten Pane in the Glass,” Brisbane-based trainer, Barry Baldwin pointed out.

Jet Spur’s winning strike rate with his juveniles this season has been terrific – with Belle D’Amour’s victory taking him to 12 winners from just 20 starters. Jet Spur also sits in the Top 8 juvenile sires in the country by earnings but has a winning strike rate that is far superior to that of any of the other stallions in the Top 50.

Rockhampton teen and promising race caller, Luke Marlow, is facing a nervous wait. The son of Lea & Jeff Marlow, from Merlo Downs Stud, has reached the finals of the 2011 John Tapp Scholarship.
This year there was a field of 28 for judges to choose from. Luke was selected as the Queensland finalist and now faces off against a representative from each State. The winner will be announced next week.
The prize is 12 months tuition in race broadcasting as well as other aspects of the radio and television industry.
“It’s very exciting and a big opportunity for me,” said Luke.
“Race Calling is all I’ve ever wanted to do and to win this scholarship would be life changing.”
There has already been three scholarship winners – Matt Hill, Josh Fleming and Mitch Manners. This young trio is now firmly ensconced in the world of race broadcasting and Matt Hill even succeeded the great Ian Craig as No 1 caller on Sky Sports Radio.

Good luck Luke!
