The Boxall family along with Margaret Macmichael and Lyn Joyce came home with the "book ends" at last Sunday's Donald meeting. They won the first race with the strong-finishing Ultra Cool and the final event with Extra Spice, courtesy of a great front-running ride by Michelle Payne who wasn't scared of using quite a bit of the track in the home straight.

The following day at Warrnambool, the stable won the final two races with Argenore and King Buddy. Argenore is raced by her local breeders Ted and Frances Powlett who won five country races from 1100m to 1600m with the mare's dam Our Option. Ivan Volkov from Lara races King Buddy along with the Forest Lodge Racing Syndicate.

Last Friday night at Moonee Valley no one would have been surprised with the win of Corvidae in a 1200m Maiden. Raced by his breeders Royce and Julie Ritchie, Corvidae as a two-year-old had run second to the very talented Toorak Toff at Sandown last January then went to Sydney as part of his Golden Slipper campaign and finished second to Hinchinbrook in the Canonbury Stakes at Randwick the following month. However, not long after Golden Slipper plans were aborted and after a spell he changed stables.
