INVINCIBLE GEM victory in Group 2 Emancipation Stakes for Lees Racing

Kris Lees was the big winner out of the weekend when his mare INVINCIBLE GEM was mighty tough in claiming the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes at Rosehill. The victory capped off a big day for the stable who also trained POWER COMMAND to the third win of her 11 start career at Doomben.

Racing took a break from metropolitan Melbourne in Victoria on Saturday and headed to Bendigo where clients took home five races! Well done to Mick Price Racing who kept the unbeaten run of MYSTERY LOVE going when taking out the Bendigo Guineas. Grahame Begg also won a feature race when MISS SISKA went home best against the girls in the Bendigo Gold Bracelet. Clients also bookended the program after MANDELA EFFECT was brave from a wide barrier for the Tasmanian Brunton team while Jason Warren cheered home ANTAH to an effortless win the last, her fourth this campaign! Well done also to Greg Eurell who continue to find success with REDCORE who was a smart winner under Michael Poy.

Further North at Doomben was a happy hunting ground for Kelly Schweida who teamed up with Jeff Lloyd aboard PRINCE OF TIE who came off a freshen to make it two straight wins. Favourite backers cheered when CYMBALISM managed the same feat in the following race for the Meagher Racing team while Race 10 saw Garnett Taylor put the polish on BOLD ENDEAVOUR who at odds of $21 came from back in the field under Ryan Wiggins to win his fourth career race.

Grant and Alana Williams won consecutive races for Bob Peters at Ascot on Saturday starting when odds-on favourite REGAL POWER won in easy style under William Pike in the Melvista Stakes. 35 minutes later they were back at it with DARK CHOICE who rode the speed to score over 2400 metres. Daniel Morton also scored an amazing win with RIBBON OF GOLD.

The rise of Ryan Balfour continued in Adelaide when BALFS CHOICE, whose last start contested the All Star Mile was too good for his rivals in Race 1 under Simon Price. Stablemate LOSTARC was better supported by punters over 200 metres in Race 3 when breaking a run of second placings to break through. Finniss Lodge Thoroughbreds claimed a strong finish with EXTREME THRILL and Caitlin Jones sent home the Darren Magro stable with smiles after stable favourite ALSKAN JADE came from last to run over the top and win the last!

Morrisey Racing scored a double with GO DIXIE and SHIJIN while Dick Leech Racing claimed a triple with ZAP, MANDATER and MCKENNA.

All Star Mile winning stable Trinder Racing were back training winners on Sunday in Tasmania after LOUISE and DEBSERRA made it a double for the stable.

Congratulations to all our overseas winning trainers; Lee Freedman and Dan Meagher in Singapore and Sean Tarry, Mike De Kock, Brett Crawford, Paul Lafferty and Glen Kotzen in South Africa.

Well done to all our clients who enjoyed success over the weekend.
