$6.5m Per Annum Of Super Maidens Added To NSW Race Programs

Racing NSW today announced the introduction of Super Maidens which will run for additional prizemoney on midweek metropolitan, provincial and country TAB meetings from 1 September 2023.

The Super Maidens provide a further $6.5 million per annum in prizemoney to participants and are as follows:

• Metropolitan Super Maidens will be run weekly at midweek metropolitan programs for prizemoney of $100,000.

• Two Provincial Super Maidens will be run each week carrying prizemoney of $60,000.

• A Country Super Maiden will be run at one Country TAB meeting each week as well as at all 65 Showcase meetings for prizemoney of $50,000.

This announcement comes on top of the already announced $27 million per annum of prizemoney increases in NSW commencing on 1 August 2023.

“Racing NSW already pays out $58 million in prizemoney for maiden races per annum and now with Super Maidens this will take it to $64.5 million per annum,” said Racing NSW’s Chairman Mr Russell Balding AO.

“The Super Maidens will enable owners to recoup a larger share of their outlay with their horse’s first race win,” Mr Balding added.

Kadall Too Good

Kadall 010723

Another exciting 2yo in the Triple Crown team has emerged with Kadall notching up his debut win on Saturday at just his second career start. The son of Capitalist commenced his racing career just two week’s earlier at Kembla Grange for a close up 2nd and it was at the same track that he returned and went one better.

Kadall clinches the victory on the line.

The singing Irishman and talented hoop, Robbie Dolan has been in the saddle for both runs and he really likes what he is seeing so far with Kadall. “He was waiting for them in front but he just began too brilliantly so I just took it up like a track gallop, he cruised along and gave a good kick. To be honest, I wasn’t fully at the bottom of him and he’s got a lot of upside” he said.

As alluded to by Robbie, Kadall got stuck in front leading the field and the inexperienced colt wasn’t quite sure how to finish off his race yet but the good thing is he was still good enough to get the job done. He will no doubt take a lot of improvement from the couple of runs under his belt and once he learns his craft a bit more with experience, we will see him step up to another level.

Kadall will likely be next seen at Royal Randwick on Saturday week over 1400m before he heads to the paddock for some well earned R&R.

The winning owners on track to celebrate the win.

Congratulations to Snowden Racing, Robbie Dolan and his excited group of owners: Mr C D Charteris, A & P Nicholls, Mr M Chiu, Mr P B Haigh, Groveleets Racing, Mr P T Williams, Mr C E Anderson, Mr L Giansiracusa, Nedicki, Stolk Racing, Mr S T Muller, Mr A J Gilbert, Mr C L Burdon, Mr B J Carey, Mr B S Bennett, Mr H J Liebke, Mentor Brewing, Mr R Davis, Mrs J J Murphy, Mr S J Maybury.

Zouprince Salutes At Warwick Farm

Zouprince

Talented 2yo Zouprince made a lovely start to his career when finishing 2nd on debut at Canterbury a fortnight ago before going one better with a tenacious win today at Warwick Farm. Stepping up to the 1200m, the son of Zoustar took up the early lead before being headed by Dazzle Legend half way up the straight. Triple Crown’s Zouprince rallied when challenged and jockey Reece Jones was able to get his head down when it counted for an exciting victory with the third horse a further 3 ¼ lengths behind.

Zouprince gets his head down where it counts.

“He had to show a lot of determination and grit today” said Triple Crown’s Chris Ward. “He is the sort of horse who has plenty of natural ability but only does what he needs to do. He can be a bit casual but once he caught sight of the other horse, who actually got a head in front, he lifted and fought back very strongly to get the job done. He’s still learning what he is doing and hasn’t put it all together yet but still managed a metropolitan win at his second start. He’s an exciting horse with a nice future.”

Zouprince was selected by Chris & Michael Ward from the Baramul Stud draft at last year’s Magic Millions National Yearling Sale for $220,000. “His breeder, Gerry Harvey, retained a shareholding in Zouprince and it really is a terrific group of owners in this horse, so we are wrapped to see them share a win so early in his race career. It’s nice to get that 2yo win next to his name and he should just keep improving with more experience” said Ward.

Some happy owners.

Congratulations to Peter & Paul Snowden and their team at Snowden Racing, jockey Reece Jones and all of his owners as follows; Mr V Wilden-Constantin, Mr J D Hope-Johnstone, Mr W G Porter, Here’s Cheers, Mr G B Clark, Mr C Johns, Mrs P M Pyne, DND Civil, Mrs A Burke, Mrs W R Hick, Mr L A Hick, Mr J C Williams, Ms J H Gibson, Mr G Harvey, Mr L Caminiti.

Annabel Neasham On Verge of $20m Mark

Has any trainer risen through the ranks as quickly as Annabel Neasham?

Trainer Annabel Neasham can bring up 150 winners for the season with a strong hand this weekend.

In just her third season of training, she has prepared the winners of 148 races with 19 stakes wins including three at Group 1 level for stable earnings of $19.9m – and there are still six weeks of the 2022-23 season remaining.

Neasham has more than doubled her total career wins in one season and is sixth on the national premiership rankings.

The Warwick Farm-based trainer can smash both the 150-win and $20m prizemoney barriers with her stable represented by the favourite in both feature race chances at Rosehill Gardens and Ipswich on Saturday.

Neasham has Bois D’Argent ($3.60) as her stable’s main hope in the Listed $160,000 WJ McKell Cup (2000m) at the Sydney meeting and Numerian ($3.30) for the Listed $200,000 Ipswich Cup (2150m).

The rise and rise of Neasham has been fascinating to watch after the trainer prepared 30 winners in 2020-21, her debut season.

“I’ve have been fortunate to get the support of some wonderful owners and we have a great team around us,” Neasham said.

“The stable has probably grown faster than I expected. At the start of the season we had the aim of trying to get 120 winners but we have revised that to 150.

“We had a lean weekend but that is the way it goes sometimes. On a whole, the horses are racing very consistently and hopefully we can get to 150 wins on Saturday.”

Neasham has a successful secondary stable base at Eagle Farm and hasn’t ruled out further expansion into Melbourne.

“I am considering a small satellite stable in Melbourne for the carnivals but Sydney is very much our main focus and where I spend most of my time.

“The way we are setting up our (training) business Sydney is our main base and we want to consolidate here.”

Neasham has her biggest-ever Sydney Saturday entry with 16 nominated for the Rosehill meeting although the trainer indicated McKell Cup hopeful Regal Lion is likely to contest the Ipswich Cup.

“I’m running Bois D’Argent and Bartholomeu Dias in the McKell Cup,” Neasham said.

“Both horses are doing well and have pleased me at trackwork but Bois D’Argent is our number one seed.

“After he won the Lord Mayor’s Cup (Rosehill over 2000m) we thought about going to the Stayer’s Cup (2600m, June 22) but we resisted the temptation and decided to keep him fresh for the 2000.

“He’s certainly not racing on tired legs. We have raced him sparingly and he looks amazing, his work has been very good and I would rate him our best chance over the weekend.”

This is some statement from Neasham as she has a very strong team at Rosehill including stablemates Fawkner Park, ($2.90 favourite), Naval College ($4.40) and Claim The Crown ($23) clashing in the TAB Handicap (2000m).

Imported duo Fawkner Park and Naval College are both in top form and each stayer is chasing a hat-trick of wins.

“I hate running Fawkner Park and Naval College against each other as they are horses I would love to see winning this race,” Neasham said.

“Naval College is a straightforward, lovely horse to have in the stable and Jett Stanley’s claim (3kg) help. He knows the horse having won on him a couple of times.

“Fawkner Park is more an unknown in Sydney Saturday class but he made very light work of the field at Doomben last start.

“This is a stronger race but there is something about him I like and he is a horse that is continuing to improve.”

Neasham also has two former European gallopers Manbehindthemoney ($4.40) and Asgoodassobergets ($10) contesting the Racing For Good Handicap (1800m).

“Manbehindthemoney is a really promising horse and I think he will go through his grades very quickly,” Neasham said.

“Asgoodassobergets probably surprised me a little when he won so well first time out at Canterbury then he loomed up to win at Flemington but wandered around a bit.

“We have brought him back in distance but he has a ‘sticky’ draw so we will think about whether we wait for another day with him.”

Another of the Neasham imports, Space Tracker is the $3.60 favourite for the Furphy Handicap (1500m).

Neasham also has a strong presence at the Ipswich meeting with Numerian the dominant favourite in the Ipswich Cup.

Although Numerian is winless this season, he has raced consistently at the top level with Group 1 second placings in the Australian Cup and Doomben Cup, he was runner-up in the Hill Stakes and Chelmsford Stakes, and ran fifth in the Caulfield Cup.

Neasham is prepared to back-up with Numerian in the Ipswich Cup after he ran fifth behind Without A Fight in the Q22 last week.

“I felt Numerian just got too far back last start,” Neasham said.

“He came out of that race bucking and squealing, he didn’t have too hard a run and at this stage he will back up in the Ipswich Cup.”

Neasham Eyes Everest, Golden Eagle with exciting mare

Learning To Fly is unlikely to race again this year, Sunshine In Paris could be set for The Everest and Golden Eagle, Zaaki and Mo’unga will be back for the Sydney spring carnival.

Trainer Annabel Neasham gave an update on her stable’s “fab four” who were such an integral part of her stable’s sensational 2022-23 season.

Neasham’s brilliant filly Learning To Fly won her first three starts in the Widden Stakes, Inglis Millennium and Reisling Stakes, then started close to favourite in Shinzo’s Golden Slipper only to be badly injured when she suffered severe interference mid-race and lost her rider.

“I think Learning To Fly is unfortunately going to miss the best part of the spring,” Neasham said.

“We are being conservative with her, we have such a high opinion of this filly we want to give her all the time in the world.

“She looks amazing but I’d say it’s probably looking more likely she will race in autumn. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before she is back because I miss her.”

Neasham was concerned she might lose Group 1 Surround Stakes winner Sunshine In Paris from her stable after the filly was sold to James Harron for $3.9 million at the Magic Millions National Broodmare Sales last month.

But Harron confirmed Sunshine In Paris will stay in Neasham’s care and race on as a four-year-old with the trainer considering an ambitious spring campaign for the talented sprinter.

“Sunshine In Paris in back in pre-training,” Neasham said. “She might be our The Everest horse and is also at the age to race in the Golden Eagle as well.”

Neasham’s $10 million earner Zaaki and proven Group 1 competitor Mo’unga will return next season.

Zaaki ran unplaced in the Doomben Cup last start which has given the trainer reason to reassess her big-race plans for the multiple Group 1 winner.

“Back in the day, Zaaki was getting it all is own way in front but they have figured out how to beat him now,” Neasham said.

“So, we might have to ride him a bit differently in the spring or I may just keep him fresher.

“It’s not all doom and gloom as he won the Hollindale Stakes two starts back and ran a second (behind Giga Kick) in the All-Aged Stakes before that.

“We haven’t seen him race that often in Sydney before because of the targets we have had for him but I think he goes really well in Sydney so that’s where we will concentrate in spring with him..”

Mo’unga didn’t win a race during the season but was placed five times at Group 1 level including his second to Dubai Honour in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes during The Championships in April.

“We are planning to have Mo’unga ready to resume in the Winx Stakes in August,” the trainer said.

Miss Hellfire Scores Dominant Win

Miss Hellfire

Miss Hellfire, the 3yo Daughter of Hellbent, has been a talented filly from the get go. She debuted in the R. Listed Magic Millions 2YO feature race at Wyong where she ran 2nd by a neck and added that all important black type to her name. She then headed north and duly saluted on the Gold Coast in their feature race, the 2YO The Pearl which saw her qualify for the $2m 2YO Magic Millions race 7 days later. Unfortunately the quick turnaround didn’t suit her but she had displayed her class in her first couple of runs and her owners knew they had a nice career to look forward to.

Miss Hellfire storms to victory

Her win on Saturday over 1200m at Rosehill Garden’s under the guidance of Reece Jones further enhanced her credentials with her now being a 2YO & 3YO winner. Miss Hellfire is a half-sister to three other stakes class horses so talent runs through her veins.

Reece Jones and Miss Hellfire set sail for the winning post.

Congratulations to all of our owners, Reece Jones and Snowden racing!

Mazu Ripe To Turn Tables On Giga Kick As Tim Clark Takes Reins In Doomben 10000

By Trenton Akers – Punters.com.au

Put a line through Mazu’s below-par performance in a “ridiculous” All Aged Stakes last month.

That is the advice from co-trainer Paul Snowden as his stable star guns for back-to-back Group 1 Doomben 10,000’s this weekend.

Stepping up to 1400m for the first time against the likes of Giga Kick and Zaaki, Snowden, who trains in partnership with his father Peter, said Mazu was brought undone by a hot speed.

Even with Mazu meeting Giga Kick again, in what will be one of the strongest Doomben 10,000’s in recent history, Snowden said he is bullish of turning the tables on The Everest winner in the Sunshine State. 

Connections have also opted for a jockey change, with Tim Clark replacing Sam Clipperton, who was in the saddle for his last win in the Doomben 10,000 last year. 

While he was beaten six lengths in the All Aged, running Giga Kick and I Wish I Win to within a length in the TJ SmithStakes over 1200m puts him right in the contest at Doomben on Saturday, Snowden believes. 

“The All Aged was over 1400m, we are back to 1200m now and we used our horse up in his first time over the longer trip (All Aged Stakes) off an aggressive speed,” he said.

Paul Snowden is confident of turning the tables on Giga Kick. Picture: Mark Evans – Getty Images.

“It was ridiculous how fast they went in that All Aged, that’s why it dragged all the backmarkers into it, the tempo was far too great. 

“It is a completely different set up this time around, he did win this race last year. 

“More importantly if the horse wasn’t going good enough, he wouldn’t be going there, so he is in good shape.”

With Godolphin set to have a three-pronged attack in the race in the form of Aft Cabin, Paulele and Vilana along with the likes of Overpass, Eduardo and Zoustyle, there will be no shortage of speed. 

While Mazu won the race after it was moved to Eagle Farm last year, Snowden said barriers will play more of a role back at Doomben. 

“Barriers will play a major role, the numbers will probably creep up a bit so gates will come into it,” he said. 

“This is it for him up here, one run then he will be back out (spelling) because it is a long time to be out for a horse that is in good order.”

Mazu is rated a $8 third favourite with TAB, behind Giga Kick ($1.90) and Aft Cabin ($6).

Mazu Ready To Peak in All Aged Stakes Showdown: Snowden

Mazu

Trainer Peter Snowden is relying on Mazu’s competitive spirit to overcome any stamina issues in the Group 1 $1.5 million Schweppes All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Mazu hasn’t won beyond 1200m and he has only been as far as 1300m under race conditions once previously, raising some concerns about the gelding’s ability to run a strong 1400m at the highest level.

But Snowden is confident Mazu will get the trip as the four-year-olds strives for his first win this season.

“Mazu is very genuine and with horses like him, even when they are on ‘empty’ they keep finding,” Snowden said.

Trainer Peter Snowden (pictured left with co-trainer Paul) is confident Mazu will run the 1400m strongly in the All Aged Stakes on Saturday. Picture: AAP Image

“He ran out 1300m strongly last preparation (second to Private Eye in the Nature Strip Stakes) after having a few hard runs earlier in the spring. He should run the 1400m strongly.”

Mazu, who is trained by Snowden in partnership with his son, Paul, is at $8 in overnight betting for the All Aged Stakes, the final Group 1 race in Sydney this season with The Everest winner Giga Kick the TAB Fixed Odds favourite at $3.30.

Giga Kick is coming a close last start second to I Wish I Win in the TJ Smith Stakes two weeks ago with Mazu finishing third.

Mazu also ran third in Giga Kick’s The Everest last spring but Snowden believes his gelding can make the necessary improvement to be in the finish of the All Aged Stakes.

“I feel Mazu hasn’t peaked yet this campaign and I think his best efforts are to come – I hope it is Saturday in the All Aged,” Snowden said.

Mazu, the only sprinter so far selected for the $15 million The Everest later this year, is likely to have his autumn campaign extended beyond the All Aged Stakes.

“We will only have time to give Mazu a short spell if we take him to Brisbane again but he’s not the type of horse we want to leave in the paddock for too long,” Snowden said.

“The opportunity is there to run in the Doomben 10,000 again so will see what he does on Saturday and how he pulls up.”

The Snowden stable has designs on snaring both Group 1 races on the final day of the Sydney autumn carnival with talented Don Corleone and Make A Call in the $600,000 Champagne Stakes (1600m).

Don Corleone has contested every juvenile Group 1 races this season, finishing a luckless second in the Blue Diamond Stakes before his fourth in the Golden Slipper and last start second behind Militarize in the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes.

The Champagne looks a two-horse race with Militarize favourite at $2.20 then Don Corleone is next at $3.70. The rest of the field is at double figure odds including Make A Call at $21.

“Militarize is a good horse and he was strong to the line in the Sires,” Snowden said.

“But Don Corleone never runs a bad race, he handled the soft ground last start and travelled quite well through the going.

“He can’t be any fitter and his mindset is really good. He’s still sharp and healthy, his blood is good, his work has been excellent and I can’t see any reason why he would drop off in the Champagne.”

Make A Call had every chance to win the Fernhill Mile last week but did plenty wrong in the straight and was run down by Tom Kitten.

In frustration, Team Snowden is going back to basics with Make A Call.

“I’ve tried winkers, blinkers, I’ve tried everything on this horse,” Snowden said. “But everything is off him this time, he’s ‘naked’ for the Champagne.

“He’s got ability but he had an opportunity last week and should have won. Hopefully he will concentrate on his job.”

The Snowden stable is hoping the Randwick track rating continues to improve from a soft 7 rating to boost the chances of Huetor in the Group 3 $200,000 JRA Plate (2000m).

Huetor, winner of the Group 1 Doomben Cup last year, has had three starts back this preparation and is working his way back to form as indicated by his fifth to Zeyrek in the Neville Sellwood Stakes last start.

“He’s ticking over well and is just about cherry ripe,” Snowden said.

“His work has been very good during the week and I expect him to run well as long as we don’t get too heavy a track on Saturday.

“We plan to take him back to Brisbane for the Hollindale Stakes and Doomben Cup.”

Snowden also has a Brisbane winter carnival campaign in mind for another import, Substantial, a dual acceptor at the Randwick meeting.

Substantial is an emergency for the Petaluma Handicap (1400m) but Snowden indicated he is leaning to running the horse in the Catanach’s Jewellers Handicap (1200m).

Imported gelding Huetor is ready to peak fourth-up in the JRA Plate. Picture: Grant Guy

Snowden noticed Substantial raced keenly when making his Australian debut over 1400m at Rosehill late last month, finishing fifth to Tamerlane, and believes the gelding is better suited in the 1200m sprint on Saturday.

“Substantial went a bit too keen at Rosehill,” Snowden said. “He was only even late, he didn’t lose ground, he didn’t make ground.

“The 1200m might be the better race because it will be run at a stronger tempo and he won’t be pulling as hard.

“He’s a very nice horse, he has racing very well at a consistent level in England last preparation, and his work has been absolutely brilliant since his first run for us.

“This is his first preparation and most imported horses usually do better second time through but he is showing me only good signs and we hope to get him to Brisbane for the carnival. He’s a very exciting horse.”

Snowden stable stalwart Ranges resumes in the Group 3 $200,000 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m).

“Ranges loves wet ground, he’s got a good draw and he’s quite forward for this race,” Snowden said.

“He’s been a very good horse for his owners. He’s no champion but he’s won over $600,000 prizemoney and he comes up every preparation.”

Interstate Group Racing

A big weekend of racing for the team in red gets underway tonight at Moonee Valley. Race 5 will see last start Group 2 winner, REVOLUTIONARY MISS, line up in the Group 2 Sunline Stakes over the mile. She has been in super form this preparation and what a result it would be if she can knock over back-to-back Group 2 wins before heading to the paddock before targeting Group 1 racing again in the Brisbane Carnival. She has drawn a nice barrier with gate 5 and she is reunited with Mick Dee who has won on her before.

Revolutionary Miss wins the Group 2 Kewney Stakes at Flemington

The team’s focus on Saturday is back in Sydney and begins at Rosehill with 6yo stalwart, RANGES, who is first-up after his spell and contesting the Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes (a race we previously won with our old Champ Hot Snitzel). He will need luck after drawing a terrible barrier with gate 16 but he is such an honest horse who always gives his best and talented hoop, Mark Zhara will be doing his best to navigate a good run for him.

It is then PIEROSSA’S turn to take centre stage in her first crack at Group 1 level in the Vinery Stud Stakes. This is also her first attempt over the 2000m which will be very interesting to see. Her jockey Sam Clipperton has had a great association with her for a long time now and has been chomping at the bit to get her up over this journey. We would over the moon to see Pierossa run in the top 3 in this race and solid showing will see her progress to the Group 1 Australian Oaks over 2400m next start.

Pierossa wins the Group 3 Spring Stakes at Newcastle

Whilst there is some big racing going on at Rosehill, the team’s focus will be shifting to Wyong mid-afternoon to watch 2YO BELYAEV make her race debut. She has trialled beautifully going into this race and if she is lucky enough to get some early luck from a tricky barrier 9, she should be right in this race up to her ears.

Enjoy a great weekend of racing!

Revolutionary Miss Shows Class in Group 2 Kewney Stakes

Consistent in the elite fillies races this season and second in the Group I MRC Thousand Guineas last spring, Russian Revolution filly Revolutionary Miss scored a well-deserved win in the Group II VRC Kewney Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on Saturday, but the victory was not without drama.

Travelling strongly behind the leaders under Mark Zahra, Revolutionary Miss had to change course seeking clear ground and in so doing caused significant interference to several runners.

She hit the line hard when clear to win by a head over progressive Toronado (IRE) filly Papillon Club.

Peter Snowden was thrilled with the win and indicated the Group I ATC Doncaster in April might be a possibility for the talented filly.

“She’s a tough filly and been a G1 bridesmaid twice in the Blue Diamond and Thousand Guineas, so a Group II win is everything for this filly and these owners,” said Snowden.

“She’ll go back to Sydney now and there are a few options, three year-old fillies can run well in the Doncaster.”

Revolutionary Miss basks in that winning glow. Image: Grant Courtney

With two wins and four placings from 12 starts three seconds, Revolutionary Miss has already won over $900,000 in prizemoney for her big group of owners.

A $195,000 Magic Millions purchase for Triple Crown Syndications from the Sledmere Stud draft, Revolutionary Miss was bred by China Horse Club and is a half-sister to stakes-winner Equation from stakes-placed Onemorenomore mare Purcentage.

Purcentage had a colt last spring by Savabeel and was then covered again by Newgate Farm’s young gun Russian Revolution, who is leading the second crop sires by winners and earnings. She is the fifth stakes-winner this season for Russian Revolution.

Tara Madgwick – Saturday March 11

Red-hot run continues as Nullify makes it two on the trot

Triple Crown’s red-hot start to 2023 continued on Wednesday when NULLIFY made it three winners from our last four runners with a gutsy victory at Gosford. 

Fresh from winning her maiden only nine days ago, Nullify wasted no time in adding a second career victory to her burgeoning CV, showing a great turn of foot to score by a head and take her career earnings past the $100,000 mark. 

Given a great ride by Mitchell Bell, Nullify settled in midfield off a hot early speed, with the leaders setting a solid tempo throughout the 1600m contest. 

The daughter of Epaulette began to improve her position as the field approached the turn for home, and once Bell pushed the button in the straight, Nullify quickened impressively and quickly surged to the front with a furlong to run. 

On what was only her second attempt at the mile, Nullify had to dig deep to fend off the late charge of Every Effort in the closing stages, but the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained mare found plenty to make it two wins on the bounce.

The ultra-consistent Nullify is enjoying the best preparation of her career, finishing in the top three in all six of her starts this campaign. Congratulations to Mitchell Bell, all the team at Snowden Racing and all her adoring owners, whose patience is well and truly paying off!

Nullify was purchased by Chris & Michael Ward for $70,000 from the Ashleigh Thoroughbreds draft at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale.
