Thanks to our mates at QLD breeders for all the latest news!



Bookings have now closed for studs interested in promoting your sire in Australia’s most popular Stallions magazine – the Queensland Stallions Directory.
Thank you to all the studs, old and new, who have supported this year’s publication. Despite the tough economic climate the response was once again over-whelming and the Directory will showcase the cream of the Queensland crop.
If you have a product or service related to the equine industry a few weeks still remain to place a trade advertisement.
Or, if you missed out on listing your stallion you can also take out a full page of double page trade-ad and make sure your sire is seen.

Banchory Stud is celebrating after their star sire Seidnazar (pictured) recorded his first black-type performer last week.
The Brett Cavanough trained Price Of Glory was pipped at the post in the Listed Albury Gold Cup 0n Friday, beaten a short half head.
The consistent performer, by Seidnazar out of a Rubiton mare, Princess Eliza, has won eight races ranging from 1300 metres to 2010 metres. He was also an unlucky fourth in the Albury Cup last year.
Price Of Glory’s full sister, Price Of Fame, won the first of the day of the Albury Gold Cup meeting, almost making it a double for the family!
It capped off a good week for Banchory after Freton, owned by Fred Brown, won the ‘no metro win’ race over a mile at Eagle Farm last Saturday. Freton is by another consistent Banchory sire, Markane.
Connections once again reaped the rewards of owning a QTIS horse with $155,000 in bonus prizemoney available on eleven races this week.
Eureka Stud continued their top run with Red Dazzler’s consistent peformer Rudy (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) taking out the 3yo $85,000 event at Doomben on Saturday collected $56,500 in the process compared to $32,000 if he wasn’t QTIS eligible.
Second and third placegetters also benefit from QTIS, In the Sky Rocket took home $17,000 rather than $10,000 for second place and Neuschwanstein’s prize money jumped from $5,000 to $8,500 for third.
McConachy, Dazzle On and Shekou all saw prizemoney increases at Townsville last Tuesday with QTIS taking the 3yo Hcp to $22,000 as opposed to $10,000.

On the country circuit, Monto, Longreach and Emerald all had their prizemoney more than double from $5,000 to $11,000 thanks to the QTIS bonuses.
