Stable On Fire At Donald

The stable of leading trainer Darren Weir was on fire at Donald on Monday, resulting in three winners, two quinella and a head off having a trifecta. Three-year-old filly Arpeggio started the ball rolling when under the guidance of a superbly judged Michelle Payne ride, held off luckless stablemate Eudoxia in the opening event. Two races later Carbon Spirit made the step up from a Maiden at Edenhope to hang on and beat fast-finishing stablemate Love My World which was having her first run since September. His third runner Candy Dance, narrowly missed out giving the stable the trifecta. She finished fifth, 0.3 lengths behind third placegetter Littleriver Ruby. 'Weiry' brought up a treble when progressive mare Means A Lot, owned by the Boxall family, wore down the tearaway leader De Mars in the fifth race. The four-year-old daughter of Denon is now likely to head back to Melbourne for her next race. The stable had to settle with second placegetters with their final two runners for the day – Whooroo and Somebody's Image.
