Determined Dundeel filly wins the Wakeful.

3YO filly Victoria Quay became Dundeel's 12th stakeswinner when she took out the VRC Wakeful S. G2 on Derby Day at Flemington...

Victoria-Quay-HomepageThe 3YO filly Victoria Quay became Dundeel’s 12th stakeswinner with a resolute and classy effort in the $300,000 VRC Wakeful S. 2000m G2 at Flemington, defeating Personal & Tyche Goddess, with Arrowfield filly Miravalle (by Redoute’s Choice) running on late for fourth.

Trained by Tony & Calvin McEvoy, Victoria Quay has progressed rapidly from her August debut fourth at Morphettville. She won her next start over 1600 metres at Balaklava, then provided Dundeel’s son Ain’tnodeeldun with his sternest opposition in the 1800-metre Hill Smith S. LR on 10 October.

Group 1 quinella for Not A Single Doubt & Written Tycoon

Not A Single Doubt & Written Tycoon are 1-2 on the current Sires' Premiership and their classy daughters filled the same positions in the VRC Empire Rose S. G1...

Not A Single Doubt’s daughter Shout The Bar returned to form with perfect timing on a crowdless Derby Day at Flemington, nosing out Written Tycoon’s daughter Odeum in the $1 million VRC Empire Rose S. 1600m G1.

It was a classic battle of the 4YO mare, winner of last season’s Storm Queen S. G1, and this season’s Thousand Guineas winner in the Spring’s best weight-for-age distaff test. Both enjoyed good runs, both rallied magnificently under pressure and it was perhaps only a few ounces of strength that separated them on the line.

Everest victory puts Not A Single Doubt on top

ClassiqueLegend-Team-2019Classique Legend’s extraordinary victory in Saturday’s $15 million The Everest is a resounding triumph for leading Hong Kong & Australian owner and Everest slot-holder Boniface Ho. 

It is also a triumph for the stallion Mr Ho has backed with high-figure bidding in Australian sale-rings. His staunch support for Not A Single Doubt has now swept the marvellous son of Redoute’s Choice to the head of the General Sires’ Premiership with progeny earnings of $8.9 million.  

With eight premiership trophies from the past 15 seasons, Arrowfield can fairly claim to be Australia’s leading home of Champion Sires. The Stud can now add “the leading home of Everest Sires” after Snitzel (sire of two-time winner Redzel) and Not A Single Doubt have supplied the winners of all but one of the first four editions.

Zoutori Wins G2 Gilgai

zoustar-march-2018-463For the second year in a row the Group II VRC Gilgai Stakes (1200m) was won by a slick Zoustar sprinter with Zoutori following in the footsteps of Sunlight who won the race last year.

He was too good for the big guns Tofane and Santa Ana Lane in posting a career best performance.

Prepared by Matt Ellerton and Simon Zahra, Zoutori won the Group II VRC Bobbie Lewis over the same course when resuming from a spell and again showed his liking for the straight course.

He stuck to his guns to score a half head win over perennial bridesmaid Dollar for Dollar taking his overall record to seven wins and six placings from 23 starts with prizemoney heading towards $900,000.

Stakes Quinella for Dundeel

A progressive pair of 3YOs combined at Morphettville on Saturday to give Dundeel his first stakes quinella, in the $100,000 SAJC Hill Smith S. 1800m LR.

The colt Ain’tnodeeldun made a big impression with a 5-length maiden win at Sale last month and managed the difficult step straight into stakes company with a determined finish after settling in the second half of the field and swinging wide on the turn. He is the 11th stakeswinner from Dundeel’s first three crops.

The filly Victoria Quay was no less impressive, also coming off a maiden win and making up even more ground in the straight to earn black type at only her third start.
