It was great to see the team at Domain Thoroughbreds on the main stage on Saturday when the talented DECLARES WAR returned to the winners circle at Headquarters in Heat 1 of The Mahogany Challenge in a thrilling finish for his big team of owners!


Another thrilling finish delivered Griffiths Racing back-to-back Flemington wins with FIDELIA once again dropping from the clouds and giving his rider Ethan Brown the satisfaction of out riding his metropolitan claim.


The Pearce Brothers continue to clean up in Perth and Saturday was no exception when VITAL SILVER knocked off Galaxy Star for Group 3 glory! The grey who has also a listed win to his name has now registered $347,000 in just 14 starts!


Another Highway Handicap went to Canberra trainer Matthew Dale after ELM COURT and Robbie Dolan made it two straight wins courtesy of a box seat ride. Gollan Racing claims an impressive quadruple win with PERUDO, ZOUSTYLE, HIGH WIND and SUGAR BOOM. Snowden Racing scored an amazing win with QUILISTA and Brideoake Racing had a great run with KINGS BROOK. 


Ryan Balfours star 2yo is gaining plenty of fans and on Saturday LIL KONTRA became a Group 3 winner! Shes now had nine starts for three wins and six placings and is as gutsy as ever! Finniss Lodge Thoroughbreds came through with a win when EXTREME THRILL was first past the post.


Sunday in Tasmania saw Brunton Racing to the fore when book ending the program. Starting WITH NO NAME in the first, they came home with Craig Newitt and STREET TOUGH in the lucky last. 


Congratulations to all our overseas winning trainers; James F Peters and Dan Meagher in Singapore, Sean Tarry, Glen Kotzen, Brett Crawford and Mike De Kock in South Africa and Fraser J Auret in New Zealand.


Well done to all who celebrated victories over the weekend.
