What a great weekend the Darren Weir stable had. It started in the first race at Moonee Valley when the very exciting two-year-old colt Cash Bound won with authority. Then on Sunday, the stable had five winners for the day - three winners at the Mildura meeting and two winners at the local Ballarat meeting.

It's the first time Darren has achieved this tremendous feat. It takes his season's tally to 95. His three Mildura winners, We Belong, Vision Of One and Flying Omission, were all ridden by stable apprentice Jacob Rule, who ended the day with four winners. The win of We Belong was special for the stable as the major shareholder in the mare is Greg Reynolds. Known around the stable as ‘Gnome’, Greg has been a long time employee of the stable. He is seen each morning in control of the treadmills and often makes the long haul over to Adelaide with the stable runners. The win of Big Desert in the 2000m Maiden at Ballarat brought back memories of the stable’s best horse She’s Archie. Both were bred and raced by Worrell & Lorraine Dunn and carry their distinctive green, yellow and red colours. Big Desert is also raced by a syndicated headed by James Macleod. The stable rounded off the successful weekend with the promising filly Spartini winning the final event on the Ballarat card. Both Ballarat winners were ridden by Brad Rawiller.
