Pony Power (Foxwedge x Lonoree) won the first two-year old race of the season in Brisbane today. The filly, which cost $100,000 at Magic Millions, is my first winner for the owner, Steve Payne, so I'm very happy. Lonoree is a Lonhro mare closely related to the good producer, Denise's Joy. After the race trainer Chris Munce said, "She picked up $40,000 today so it takes a lot of the pressure off us to qualify for the Millions. I can pick and choose the right races for her from here on in. I liked the way she hit the line and she got very close to 33 seconds for her final 600m." 

Good run continues for the Duncans

Pinch Passion (Denman x Valentine Rose) has won for the second time in four days. On the quick backup from Wednesday’s meeting at Ipswich, the three-year old won well over 1600m at the Sunshine Coast. The win continues the great run of owners Angie and Neal Duncan in the last 12 months. I bought Pinch Passion at Magic Millions for $70,000 (pictured here as a weanling).

Ingeegoodbe makes it 4 on end

Ingeegoodbe

Ingeegoodbe (Domesday x Magic Summer) won its fourth race in a row at Doomben on Saturday. A $41,000 purchase at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in 2014 (pictured), the gelding has now won six of 19 starts for owners Angie and Neil Duncan who also race Pinch River and Bidii Babe.

 

Three city winners on Saturday
30 July 2017
Every Faith

A good day at the office today with three city winners - one at Caulfield and two at Doomben. Every Faith (Not a Single Doubt x Zephyria) (photo above) kicked the day off with a win that took the mare’s earnings past the $400,000-mark. Closely followed by Stellarcraft (Starcraft x Alborada), which recorded the fifth win of its career. And Ingeegoodbe (Domesday x Magic Summer), another gelding, notching up win number three.   

Half to Rangipo wins again

Rangipo’s little half-sister Arohata (High Chaparral x Holloway) took another step toward city racing when winning for the second time at Geelong, today. Connections are now looking at a 2000m three-year-old race in two weeks and another in four with the filly. Jockey Luke Nolen said, “She’s got more upside than all those but she’s still working her craft out. It was pleasing to see her rise in grade and still win nicely today. She’s got a bright future.”

Nice win by filly from nice mare
22 June 2017
Smart Coupe

Smart Coupe (Smart Missile x Coupe), bought for $22,000 at the Tasmanian sale, scored convincingly at Wangaratta today for the First Light Racing team. The filly is the ninth foal of the Edward Manifold Stakes winner Coupe, which also ran fifth in a Blue Diamond. “Wrapped with that run” said co-trainer Simon Zahra. “I was most impressed by the way she finished off the 1100m. They ran quicker time than the Benchmark 70 later that day so a lot of merit to her effort.”

Another Real Saga for FLR
21 June 2017
Weekend Saga

Weekend Saga (Real Saga x Weekend Surprise), a $25,000 purchase from Magic Millions, won on at the Gold Coast today. The filly is First Light Racing’s third winner by the sire, which has also left VRC Derby runner Epic Saga, and two-time winner Sir Sagamore. After the race jockey James Orman said, "Very nice filly on the up. Still very green and doing a few things wrong but will improve off that today. She will be much better on top of the ground."
