Eagle Farm was the personal playground of Snowden Racing on Saturday which began when Larry Cassidy got there in the nick of time with SMARTEDGE. It would be the Triple Crown silks doubling up when BRAVE SONG broke a run of seconds and come from well back to claim the Group 3 Healy Stakes. HANOVER SQUARE had a good run and took a win for Bevan Johnson while Gollan Racing scored a win with VEGA ONE but it was Danny OBrien who claimed the Group 3 Tattersalls Cup with VOW AND DECLARE.


Randwick was a happy hunting ground for clients starting with Marc Quinn who saddled up GUMSHOE who progressed through the ranks to win the $75,000 Highway Handicap. John Thompson was quick to follow when PRIMITIVO stepped up to 2000 metres and finished strong in heavy conditions. The wins didnt stop there for Thompson when COMMANDER got the job done from riding the speed. Matthew Dale wouldnt have wanted the result any closer when NOTATION also scraped in for her fourth win. Proven Thoroughbreds scored a win when SESAR crossed the line first.


Patrick Payne and his partnership with Prime Thoroughbreds showed he can do anything from Grand Annuals to two-year-olds after punters landed the money with RUBISAKI got the job done at Flemington in arrogant style. Success also came in Adelaide when BEA TEMPTED continued her successful campaign. The last race at Flemington would see ROMANCER lift late to score at odds of $26 for new trainer Grahame Begg.


Other winners at Morphettville included Leon Macdonald who prepared COUNTER DRIVE at odds of $21 to score while IRISH MINT was similar odds when Caitlin Jones rode the Richard and Chantelle Jolly galloper to a one length win. Aaron Purcell found success when DOUBLE BLUFF claimed a win.


It wouldnt be a day in Perth without the Williams name getting a winner and MYSTERY MISS in the Belmont Guineas and FESTIVAL MISS ensured success. Neville Parnham claimed victory with a massive win by WAR GOD.


A shout out to our ACT friends Keith Dryden and Matthew Dale for their wins on Friday and the Trinder and Brunton names for Tasmanian success on Sunday.


Congratulations to all our overseas winning trainers; Brett Crawford, Glen Kotzen, Mike de Kock and Paul Lafferty in South Africa.
