Redzel -- The Snitzel colt, raced by the Triple Crown Syndicate and trained by the Snowden's added the inaugural running of the 10 million dollar Everest to his growing tally of victories. The upfront bias of the Randwick track set it up for the Keiron Mcevoy ridden Redzel who sat on the speed and kicked clear after straightening to win convincingly from Vega Magic and a fast finishing Chautauqua who weaved a passage on the inside of gallopers.
Not A Single Doubt and Mighty Boss -- What a brilliant day for the Not A Single Doubt family on Saturday. In the showpiece event at Caulfield we saw the Mick Price trained Mighty Boss and his flashy mane, get a run up along the inside for Michael Walker, to score in the 2 million dollar, Caulfield Guineas. He is out of a Encosta De Lago mare, Bullion Mansion. There were three earlier winners of Not A Single Doubt at Caulfield and Randwick with Qafila, winning the two year old race to open the day at Caulfield and at Randwick, we saw the 3yo filly Torville in the listed Reginald Allen Quality win as well as Lord Condor, score in the second event.

Classic Uniform -- Good to see the Gary Moore trained, Al Maher gelding get another win on the board in the 2000m Craven Plate on saturday. Tim Clarke rides him well and he is a gutsy little fighter when he leads them up. Happy Clapper tried hard all the way down the straight but just could'nt reel him in.
I Am Invincible and Invincibella -- Another top ride by Tim Clarke for Chris Waller saw the I Am Invincible mare, record another win, in the Star Mile. She is out of Abscond, a mare by the amazing Galileo and this was one of the light bulb moments over the weekend. His broodmares are producing the goods worldwide. On Sunday, Folkswood was successful in the Cranbourne Cup and is likely to head for the group ones and a possible clash with Winx, over the carnival. He is also out of a Galileo mare. In the group 3 Thoroughbred Stakes saw the Bott/Waterhouse trained filly explode from the barriers , cross the field and lead all the way with Steve Baster in the saddle. In the Schweppes Hcp 1050m at Morphetville, Invisible Girl won under Joe Bowditch's riding for Lloyd Kennewell. She is out of a More Than Ready mare.
Super Cash -- To finish the day in the Schillaci Stakes saw Kate Mallyon get up on Super Cash with a strong ride just falling in for victory. Earlier in the day I think she just misjudged her run on the international horse Johannes Vermeer. The Written Tycoon, 5yo mare is certainly on the ball, fresh.
Lord Fandango -- The winner of the Herbert Power Stakes will now head to the Melbourne Cup and being out of a Monsun mare. I would'nt be at all surprized if he ended up winning the big one. He is by Lord of England who stands in Germany.
Lope De Capio and Lope De Vega -- Durbridge Stakes a listed race over 1200m, saw another win for Lope de Capio and another good ride by Joe Bowditch. Vega Magic is the standout right now for this breed and was unlucky not to score a win in the Everest but there are plenty of others making their mark, like this gelding, who is out of the Danzero mare, Dance of the Ocean.
