Snowden Racing were training winners everywhere literally over the weekend tasting success in four states. It began with at home in Sydney when COSMIC FORCE led from start to finish for favourite backers in the Roman Consul. CALIFORNIA ZIMBOL and Kerrin McEvoy would adopt similar tactics in the Thoroughbred Club Stakes at Caulfield to upset Loving Gabby while it was STRIKE on debut by Spirit of Boom putting the stables name up in lights at Doomben. Saturdays success followed on from a double at Canberra on Friday with NAHAB and NOVEMBER MORNING.


Back to Randwick and it was THE INEVITABLE who continued his terrific winning streak this campaign to take out the $500,000 Silver Eagle to the joy of Scott Brunton who would follow up the win the following day when GALENUS won on home soil. Kirkup Racing also made the winners circle when INVINCIBLE ROCK was first past the post.


Wendy Roche scored a win in the Angst Stakes with NETTOYER while the lucky last in Sydney saw Kris Lees partner up with Australian Bloodstock and get the job done with AGENT PIPPA to the delight of Samantha Clenton.


A big day for the Harvey Racing team who prepared a double at Ascot on Saturday which started in Race 1 when VALIDATION got favourite punters off to the perfect start with a maiden win. The team book ended the program when Jade McNaught also rode STRATOCREED to perfection over 1400 metres. Pikey got the best out of odds-on pop SUBLIME IMAGE to score for Grant and Alana Williams while Trevor Andrews put the polish on EBONY MAGI who has now won his only two races for the new stable.


Michael Hickmott got his day off to the perfect start after Frankel stayer FRANKED has now won two races in as many weeks. Richard and Chantelle Jolly also enjoyed success in the Durbridge Stakes with KEMALPASA in the last while CRAFTMANSHIP in some famous silks made Mick Prices journey worthwhile in the Hill Smith Stakes. Kristi Evans claimed a magnificent win with MABEL JOSEPHINE.


A shout out to Kelly Schweida who prepared PARK CHINOIS to victory and Lindsay Hatch who scored with RHYME NOR RHYTHM in Queensland while Keith Dryden got the job done with BALONNE on Friday at Canberra as did Matt Dale with SAUSEDGE in the feature Memorial Cup.


Congratulations to all our overseas winning trainers; Stephen Gray and James F Peters in Singapore, Brett Crawford and Mike de Kock in South Africa.
