Correct weight had not even been declared before offers were made for the impressive previously unraced winner I Did It Again.

He looks the goods on what we saw at Caulfield on Saturday; whilst winter form can be sceptical he was surely a cut above the rest.

His trainer, Greg Eurell, has been down that road before when training a highly promising horse, Explosive Witness, after a win at Moonee Valley, the owners received an offer they couldn’t refuse, the horse was sold to race overseas.

The name of the game has changed, this time Greg holds all the aces, and that is not likely to change as his wife, Danielle, owns I Did It Again.

After last Saturday the gelding will have a couple of weeks off to freshen up before a spring campaign, which is earmarked with the Danehill Stakes, down the straight six at Flemington.

Every trainer is looking for that good horse; it makes it easier to get out of bed on those cold frosty mornings.

Those good horses create a land of opportunity as Wynx has for Chris Waller, he receives lots of exposure, with owners wanting to give him horses to train because of his image, although nothing has changed, he was always a good trainer.

The same applies to Greg Eurell, there was Mic Mac, Pinker Pinker and Apache Cat, they were the memorable stars in their era.

Greg is not going backwards, to the contrary, life is just beginning, the popular Cranbourne trainer has recently moved into ultra modern stables with all facilities that can house 60 horses, with viewed track work from the balcony.

There is always a warm greeting awaiting you from his able secretary Sarah, she understands the racing industry thoroughly after 10 years of service with the Greg Eurell stable.

Quinton Scott missed seeing his mare Forgeress win at Caulfield on Saturday for a good reason; he was at home convalescing after spending a few days in hospital.

His wife Barbara was the stand in trainer for the day, she passed the test with honours, it was a big thrill for all concerned, particularly for apprentice rider Melissa Julius,she is indentured to trainer Simon Wilde at Warrnambool.

Forgeress drew the outside gate, she was quickly away to be running one off the fence, coming around the turn she was full of running.

She had the favourite Sullivan Bay covered half way up the straight and won coming away.

The mare was purchased by the Bourke family for their father, last August; however, he passed away sadly without ever seeing the mare win.

Her next assignment is likely to be at Flemington in three weeks now that she has struck form, she could easily repeat the win
