Caulfield 14—10—17

Debutant Stakes. 1000 m Time 58.30

Co trainer, Tom Dabernig, commented re Qafila, “when Damian Oliver got her into the clear our filly was too strong late in the race, I thought we were not going to pick up that other filly, Sacred Sword, to her credit she didn’t give in.”

“She was pretty quiet prior to the race; she got a bit funny going into the gates, all that tells me there is improvement to come.”

I think we have a nice filly here, she knuckled down well after coming from well back I n the field, at the 800 metres.”

Is she a Magic Millions filly? “There are a couple of options, the fillies race on Melbourne Cup Day, or the Maribyrnong Plate on the final day. “

“We will then put her on ice and await the Magic Millions in January.

Co trainer, Gai Waterhouse, comments re Invincible Star,” she’s got scope, that’s what you are looking for, is scope and speed,s he needed that from the outside draw, that is what you are looking for, scope and good cruising speed to get a win.”

‘Steven utilised her speed, she won here last season, we are here for these fillies races, they have programmed some nice races for the fillies, she could get up to a mile, we will wait and see, we will enjoy the sprint distances at present.”

Trainer Tony McEvoy commented re Cool Passion,’‘ luckless at his first two, never got a look in at Balaklava, unlucky, not to have won the Listed Wiley Stakes against the boys the other day in Adelaide. “

“Coming over here to 1200 metres against mares, I was expecting a big performance, she was fabulous, she is getting better each time.”

“As to her future, I want to know, and what I would like to learn from her, in her training up the hills at Angaston, one tells me she will run further. it is hard to interfere with her great record at 1200, is very good, she has won eight races at that distance, there are plenty for her at 1200, if she could get to 1400 I would consider the Myer Stakes.”

Herbert Power Stks. 2400 m Time 2.27.17

Trainer, Archie Alexander, comments re Lord Fandango,” we will see how he is, I would like to run in the Caulfield Cup depending on how the horse pulls up, he had quite a bit in hand, it’s a bit too early, we will have to wait and see how he pulls up, I would like to run.”

“He is improving, there is nothing wrong with his form, he won the Benalla Cup, he is maturing and the firm tracks do assist.”

“There is nothing wrong with his form, he is a light weight in form, it would be hard not to run, there is a lot of form around him."

Keno Weekend Hussler Stks. 1400 m Time 1.23.94

Co trainer, Tom Dabernig, comments re Fast ‘N’Rocking, “ he has won $1.3 million in prizemoney, he is certainly a great campaigner, although he doesn’t win that often, his record is 52 starts for six wins, and 12 placings

”There is a nice race on Oaks day that may suit him, a 1400 metres at Flemington, that is where we may go, it would suit with the long run in.”

“He did run second in a Blue Diamond, he has done his job and is a stable favourite, he loves it here, some of his best wins have been at Caulfield.”

Thousand Guineas 1600 m Time 1.36.27

Trainer, Aaron Purcell, comments re Aloisia,” it’s all a new experience being at Caulfield taking over a great bunch of horses from Cairon Maher.”

“Great staff and good owners, doing the best that I can, hoping to get the right results, so far it has been good.”

“A Group winner gives you a lot of confidence, taking over the Maher team I know them from afar, it is nice to get your hands on some very impressive thoroughbreds.”

“There is some very good guys here, we get along well, and with the win of Aloisia in the Thousand Guineas we will press onto the Oaks, she has now won the 1000 Guineas impressively.

Ladbrokes Stks.WFA 2000 m Time 2.02.17

Trainer, Darren Weir, comments re Gailo Chop, “each run has been terrific, he has got fitter, and the step up in distance, and it looked a race if he could get to the front, he could control the race.”

“He got some cheap sectionals along the back, and gave a good kick, however, he wouldn’t have wanted it to be much further.”

“He will go to the Cox Plate for sure on what Winx did to that field last week, it is a long shot but racing can be a funny game sometimes.”  

“We have him in great order, he will run a good race, he is certainly fit enough, rock hard in fact, we will have to wait and see, each run has been terrific.”

Trainer, Mick Price, comments re Mighty Boss,” look to be fair, there were better form horses than him in the race, he wasn’t the pick of the market, there were better horses in the race than him with better form than him.”

“We just had to persevere and persevere with him; I think he just peaked on the day to tell you the truth.”

“He was entitled to be 10th pick in the market; he had won just the one race at Sale, and ran a fair race in the Stutt Stakes at Moonee Valley.”

“He’s an easy sort of a horse, the girl that rides him has done a fantastic job with him, she has popped him over those little rubber jumps on Wednesday morning, something different for the horse.”

Toorak Hcp 1600 m Time 1.36.04

Trainer, Darren Weir, comments re Tosen Stardom, “It’s a relief that he has won a race here, he is a talented horse that has been plagued with problems, he has this amazing pedigree to back it up.”

It is important he can back up his pedigree, this was the key to get a few runs into him, instead of stopping and starting and getting him fit enough to race, he is a seven year old stallion.”

“He will make a great stallion, “but not in Australia, he needs to go back to Japan, he will be useless here, even if he goes to stud next year in 2018, his first crop of foals wont race until 2022, and he will be a twelve year old stallion.
