A look back at one amazing weekend!

It was another exciting couple of days of racing for the team with a big number of runners saddled up across three different states on Friday and Saturday. We ended the weekend with a total of ten winners - including two at Group 1 level and another five at Black Type - WOW!

 

Our remarkable weekend started off at Terang on Friday where Allspice and Hale Soriano got the job done before we headed to Moonee Valley for the final night meeting of the season. Divine Command started off our winning treble under lights and kept her honest run of form alive when she made it back to back victories in the Benchmark 70 Handicap over 2040m. Think Bleue (photographed) earned herself Black Type success with an impressive victory in the Group 3 Alexandra Stakes over 1600m, before stable star Hellbent assured his future career at stud, finally breaking through for a much deserved Group 1 win with a jaw-dropping performance in the $500,000 William Reid Stakes - a great result for his group of happy owners.

 

The winning ways continued into Saturday with runners across three states - Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.

 

It was a day of racing that dreams are made of, not only getting a Black Type treble in Sydney but winning both feature races on the card at Mornington. The ever consistent Stellar Collision got another well deserved win at Listed level in the Hareeba Stakes before Kings Will Dream made it five from five in Australia with yet another effortless performance, bringing home the Listed Mornington Cup over 2400m in front of his excited connections and leaving us with the question of just how good is this four year old?

It was an almighty Golden Slipper day up at Rosehill Gardens with Master Of Arts saluting in the Group 3 Manion Cup before Gailo Chop continued his outstanding preparation and made himself a three-time Group 1 winner when taking out the $700,000 Ranvet Stakes - Darren’s first Group 1 success in Sydney. With the amazing day coming to a close the speedy front runner Quilista gave us the ‘cherry on top’ when she went back-to-back, securing a Group 3 win in the Birthday Card Stakes by an easy 1.3 lengths in the final event of the day.

 

Ten winners, two Group 1's, 5 other Stakes races, two trebles and a double - now that's a weekend to celebrate!

 

Congratulations to everyone involved in this success.
