ILOVEMYSELF and BLAZEJOWSKI give Greg Eurell a double at Flemington
There aren't many places to have a winning double than at Flemington and that's exactly what Greg Eurell was able to achieve on Saturday when ILOVEMYSELF and BLAZEJOWSKI found the winners stall.
Many trial watchers had switched onto the fact that Eurell's Ilovethiscity debutant had a motor and scored impressively when held-up for a run under Damien Oliver. It was another champion rider Craig Williams who would get the best out of BLAZEJOWSKI who is now a three time winners at headquarters. A win from KING OF LEOGRANCE on Saturday has now got Danny O'Brien looking at Sydney or Adelaide for more Cups.
Group 2 success found John Thompson and at odds of $19 in the Skyline Stakes when MAMARAGAN made a winning debut - a son of Wandjina - after winning his two most recent official trials. Kerry Parker trained THINK IT OVER returned to winning form, as did TRUMBULL who picked up his first city win for Kim Waugh.
Wyong Trainer, Damien Lane booked his spot at Randwick next month with Oakfield Missile now a contender in the Country Championships.
Doubles also came at Doomben in the form of Australian Bloodstock and Kris Lees and commenced in Race 2 after Andrew Mallyon got the best out of MONGOLIAN WOLF in a fighting finish to the cheer of favourite punters. The same combination would combine later in the day but this time over the much shorter 1100m, when WANDABAA third-up from a spell made it four wins from nine starts. There was also a nice 21st birthday present for Steph Thornton aboard the Kelly Schweida trained THE ODYSSEY who led all the way.
Steven O'Dea and Proven Thoroughbreds were busy in the winners circle at the Gold Coast, with 3yo GOLDNEALA cracking her first win and MISSED THE ALARM returning to form to cross the line in first position. Congratulations also to Angela Plumb Racing with a win from LET'S PARTY MARTY on home soil.
South Australian clients enjoyed plenty of success at Morphettville on Saturday. David Jolly Racing was in great form picking up a double with LAKHANI ROSE claiming her 3rd career win and BAJAN getting the job done again for Grand Syndicates. Richard and Chantelle Jolly and Lachlan Neindorf teamed up with REGALO DI GAETANO for back-to-back wins. The success rolled on when Byron Cozamanis in his familiar black and orange silks had a profitable win in the Cinderella Stakes with HARD ROCK GIRL in the black-type event. Leon Macdonald and Andrew Gluyas made sure they didn't miss out when rolling the odds-on favourite to score with iron mare TEQUILA TIME.
SKY FIVE was first on the board at Ascot for Brett Pope Racing, while Dan Morton and Chris Parnham steered SHERPA LASS home to make it 3 from 3 for the 4yo mare. Further north to Pioneer Park and Dick Leech and his team were unstoppable with TIGER TRAP, GOLDEN DICE and ALLSPICE claiming victory.
Congratulations to all our clients who found the winner's circle last week.
