Already wonderfully bred being out of a Fastnet Rock mare and by Rubick, the highest-rated 2YO of his year and son of leading sire of sires Encosta De Lago, a result for Care To Think on Saturday would significantly increase the value of our filly, before she has even stepped on track!

Secret Trail won the Listed Bright Shadow Stakes at Doomben on Saturday to become a remarkable fifth individual Stakes winner of the year for Triple Crown, after Group race wins for Redzel, Dothraki & Moss Trip and a Listed win for Emperor’s Way.

“Triple Crown are the best in the business, and the proof of that is the multiple Group-race winners they’ve selected. That’s why Paul and I choose to be exclusively with Triple Crown”

Secret Trail earns black-type rewards with Doomben victory

IN A terrific result for her owners Secret Trail earned the black-type success she so dearly deserved when kicking clear with an impressive sprint to land the Listed Bright Shadow Quality Handicap over 1200m, in doing so adding considerable value to her prospects as a broodmare.

The Stakes win sees Triple Crown stride further clear as Australia’s leading syndicators, with Secret Trail becoming a remarkable fifth individual Stakes winner since the turn of the year, with six total Stakes wins and a further five individual Stakes placegetters!

In a perfect ride from Ron Stewart, Secret Trail kicked clear at the 200m mark and held off the attentions of the fast-finishing Crystal Fountain on the rails for a fine victory, taking her career earnings past the $500,000 mark.

The daughter of Denman had been knocking on the door of Stakes success after a brilliant fourth in the Group 3 Maurice McCarten Stakes, won by Triple Crown’s Dothraki, and she got her just rewards here as she enters the final stages of her racing career.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden was delighted for the owners after the success. “What a result for the owners,” he said. “She’s a very honest mare and it was a really good effort yesterday.

“It was the perfect ride and the race panned out exactly how we would’ve liked it on a day where it was very difficult to get back and go on and win.

“She was very brave late and it’s the result we’ve been looking for over the last twelve months. She’s now won over half a million in prizemoney which is a terrific effort.

“She’s ticked that black-type box now so it’s job done and congratulations to all involved.”

Charlie retuns to scene of memorable success

CHARLIE BOY will take on the Group 3 BRC Sprint on Saturday – a race he is all too familiar with, as he scored a memorable success for Triple Crown in the race three years ago.

The son of Myboycharlie is chasing down the $1 Million mark in prizemoney after collecting a Group 2 and a pair of Group 3s in a glittering career that included a run in the Golden Slipper as a juvenile.

Now under the stewardship of Tony Gollan, the now seven-year-old won by a half-length from Rock Sturdy in the 2015 edition when trained by Peter & Paul Snowden, and has found a new lease of life since moving north, winning at Ipswich in September last year.

He arrives off the back of a solid third in the Listed Gold Coast Cup a fortnight ago, and Gollan said he’ll take improvements from that run.

“There are lots of pluses here for the horse,” said Gollan. “He’s come on really well since his run at the Gold Coast and each run this prep has seen him strip a fitter horse.

“I couldn’t be happier with him leading into this. He loves good ground, is back on his home track and should get a good run from barrier three.

“If he gets luck at the right time he’ll put in a really good performance.”

Brad Stewart will do the steering over the 1350m trip, in what would be a most popular victory if Charlie can reproduce his brilliance once again!

Moss Trip has Group 1 in sights after Guineas romp

TRIPLE CROWN’S thrilling winner of the Listed Inglis Guineas, Moss Trip, will be heading north in search for further Black Type success after coming through Saturday’s run like a ‘machine’.

Moss Trip’s most valuable success came on Saturday when she collected $250,000 for taking the seven furlong race at Scone restricted for Inglis graduates, and this came off the back of a nail-biting win at Randwick in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes.

Despite being on the go since December, the three-year-old filly continues to thrive in the stable environment, and will now be targeted at Group races in Queensland, with a possible tilt at the Group 1 Tatts Tiara on June 23; a race won by the Snowden trained Tycoon Tara 12 months previous.

Her first target, however, is the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes on June 9 at Doomben over 1350m.

Speaking to Andrew Bensley’s Racing HQ on Sky Sports Radio, Michael Ward said, “She’s really thriving in her racing and is putting together a handy record with five wins from ten starts and keeps improving throughout the prep.

“Brenton got off and said he had a lap full of horse underneath him and that’s why he rode her very confidently and felt she would let down like she did. It was a very dominant performance.

“She appears to have come through the run very good and we’re taking it race by race. At this stage we’re looking at the Dane Ripper and then if she comes through that run the Group 1 Tatts Tiara.”

The trophy presentation captured the attention of many racegoers to Scone as elated Channel 10 Weatherman Tim Bailey delivered an enigmatic acceptance speech, and joined in the celebrations with his fellow owners.

“You see the pure joy of ownership in these guys,” continued Ward. “Tim Bailey is a great character and is enjoying the experience like all of our owners. It’s great to have him involved in racing.”

Moss Trip mesmeric in winning valuable Inglis prize

MOSS TRIP produced a stunning performance in dominating the Listed Inglis Guineas at Scone on Saturday, scooping a valuable cheque in the $400,000 race restricted for Inglis graduates.

Settling in the last pair from her wide barrier, the filly still had plenty of ground to make up in the straight, but quickly kicked into top gear and flew over the top for an impressive win.

Arriving off the back of a Group 3 success in the James Carr Stakes, Moss Trip showed that form to be too good for her rivals, going on to win by two lengths, with the Snowden stable collecting the quinella through Assimilate running second.

And co-trainer Peter Snowden suggested Brisbane could be on the cards for the daughter of Mossman.

“She’s a really exciting filly and was excellent on Saturday,” said Snowden. “She got back in the run and still had some distance to make up but she was very impressive.

“The people at home that work with her have done a really good job. Mentally they have got her in a really good place.

“She’s pulled up well from the run and eaten up so we can make a decision on where we go from here in the next couple of days but there are options in Queensland should she show that she’s still going well.”

Moss Trip is amassing an impressive record, with the $32,000 purchase now with figures of 10: 5,1,2 and $446,000 in prizemoney.

Punters keen to hear Lindsay Park Song in Caulfield opener

PUNTERS have launched an early move on a Lindsay Park two-year-old in the opening race of Saturday’s Caulfield meeting, who was purchased by Triple Crown Syndications for $20,000 from the Inglis Classic Sale.

Trainers David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig will unveil That Song in the Ladbrokes Back Yourself Plate (1100m). Racenet’s Odds Comparison shows That Song opened at $7.50 on Wednesday but the colt is now as short as $4.20.

Fluctuations show bookies turned That Song’s quote from $7.40 to $4.60 but punter interest has pushed his price into $4.20.

The son of Your Song has had jumpouts at Flemington and Werribee leading up to his debut in Saturday’s $100,000 contest. David Hayes said That Song’s effort in the Werribee jumpout on Monday convinced the team to give him a crack at the Caulfield race.

“He’s a nice horse that trialled quietly at Werribee,” Hayes said in Lindsay Park’s weekly roundup on Saturday’s runners.

“He had more to offer and I thought was worth a try in a competitive little race.”

Doomben 10,000: Redzel returns to where his dream rise began

SYNDICATOR Chris Ward concedes there’s a world of difference between Redzel’s 2017 tilt at the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 and the one confronting the sprinter in Saturday’s $700,000 feature.

Redzel was sent out a $9 chance in last year’s 10,000 but will start a hot favourite to defend his crown on Saturday, having established himself as the benchmark sprinter in the southern hemisphere since bagging his first Group 1 at Doomben.

Ward and his brother Michael, who run Triple Crown Syndications, put together a team of owners who could not have dreamt what would transpire in the past 12 months.

“They are an excitable bunch. They are enjoying it and so they should. It’s an amazing ride they’re on,” Ward said of Redzel’s syndicate of owners. “There’s a lot of ups and downs in racing and you have to enjoy those good times.

“You can’t imagine any horse gets to this sort of level, with this sort of consistency.

“When we did come up there to Brisbane last year, we knew he was on an upward spiral and you just don’t know where that’s going to stop.

“We were excited for the future and he has managed to keep building from that time and set us along a path that’s just been amazing for all of us.”

There’s not many areas Winx has been outpointed in Australian racing in the past three years but Redzel’s connections can boast to have won more prizemoney than the great mare this season, having banked $7,497,300 since he won last year’s 10,000. Add in the prizemoney from Redzel’s Doomben success, and that figure becomes almost $8 million in his past eight starts.

The $5,800,000 for being first home in The Everest in October helped boost that total but there’s hardly been a blemish on Redzel’s scorecard in the past year.

“He’s been unbelievable,” Ward said. “Every company like ours — trainers, syndicators, whatever — you need good flag-bearers as horses and there’s been none better than him and the ride he’s given our owners.

“Our other owners follow him as well and they share in that experience. Even though they may not have ownership in that horse, they are all just as thrilled.

“He’s been a huge boost for the business and also for the industry. It’s great seeing a syndicated horse from people of all walks of life all around Australia enjoying that sort of success in races like The Everest and the 10,000 at the top level.”

Ward believes Redzel is going better than ever and tipped him to improve on what he did last start in the T.J. Smith Stakes.

“Prior to that race, (trainers) Peter and Paul Snowden were open in saying they didn’t think it was the ideal preparation going into that race for him,” he said. “He’s up to peak fitness now and around Doomben, I think he will be very hard to beat.”

Moss Trip primed for Guineas assignment

FRESH off the back of her exhilarating victory in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes at Randwick, Moss Trip is looking to back up in the $400,000 Scone Guineas on Saturday, with co-trainer Peter Snowden saying she continues to improve.

It was a nail-biter at Randwick as Moss Trip got the verdict in a tense photo finish – much to the delight of her many owners, with that win following a superb 5th at Group 1 level in the Surround Stakes, and she faces an equally tough task in this valuable race restricted for Inglis graduates.

A $32,000 purchase from the Inglis Classic Sale, Moss Trip has repaid her sales price and more, and lines up against ten rivals in one of the feature races of Australia’s richest country carnival.

And co-trainer Peter Snowden says the Mossman filly has continued to improve leading into this assignment.

“She worked excellently on Tuesday, and I think she’s shown me to have improved again since the Carr Stakes,” said Snowden.

“She’s in great order and I’m really happy with her. It looks a nice race her at Scone.

“It’s a competitive race but she’s a competitive filly and to my eye she’s looking terrific.”

Brenton Avdulla returns back aboard the three-year-old, with Moss Trip jumping from barrier 10.
