Second Glenlogan Park To Wealth Princess

Top-class mare Wealth Princess etched her name into Queensland racing history when she easily won the $150,000 Glenlogan Park Stakes at Doomben last Saturday. She's became the first horse to win the Group 3 feature twice, having also been successful two years ago. The mare was then trained in New Zealand by Brent Gillovic and won her first five races over there before heading to Australia for the rich plums in Brisbane. Purchased by Sean Buckley, she went on to finish second to Melito in the Group 1 Winter Stakes at Eagle Farm in June 2010. Due to injury, she had nearly a two-year absence from the track and was transferred to the Darren Weir stable. "Weiry" almost pulled off a great training coup with Wealth Princess in the Listed Wangoom Handicap at the Warrnambool Carnival, when beaten a nose after having a chequered passage in the straight. She was never in any trouble winning the Glenlogan Park and was eased down over the concluding stages by jockey Michael Walker. The San Luis mare will now line up in the $200,000 Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes over 1400m at Eagle Farm on June 2. Safely through that race she is likely to ‘back up’ in the $1m Stradbroke Handicap a week later.
