Caulfield 21—10—17

Resimax Plate 1400 m Time 1.22.94

Co trainer, Gai Waterhouse, commented re Our Crown Mistress,” she is an improving filly, big and rangy by Star Witness, she was bought by Johnnie and Susie Mackever, through a bloodstock agency in England, she is a very serious filly.”  

“Her next start will be at Flemington, we have taken her to the provincial level where we have won, but we thought this was a winnable race here.”

“We were confident she did have the form on the board, she was ready to take the next step.”

Polytrack Gothic Plate 1400 m Time 1.23.87

Trainer Darren Weir commented re Snitzepeg,” we took him up to Queensland and he was a little disappointing, his Flemington win was a bit of a surprise, we will head to the Carbine Club Stakes and onto the Sandown Guineas, Trust In A Gust and Mahuta, they were similar horses, they came through these types of races.”

“They have to be tough to stand up to the work to get then fit, that’s what Moody used to do and it works.”

“Snitzepeg has been a bit of a surprise, although he did spell well up there, he has made natural improvement, this colt was selected by John Foote along with four others, they have all won city races.”

 N Z Bloodstock Ethereal Stks. 2000m Time 2.02.71

Co Trainer Gai Waterhouse commented re Pinot, “ ‘I didn’t worry about the barrier as I knew she would go forward, just as I was watching the race when the speed dropped off and she was able to take up a good position and control the race, she looks a natural staying filly.”

“She hasn’t raced for three weeks which I thought was a slight disadvantage, we were discussing even before this race should we run in this before the Wakeful, and then the Oaks.”

“This was the filly we selected for the owners when they came for the Easter Sales, we chose this daughter of Pierro, who won the Golden Slipper Stakes.”

 “She cost $200,000 which was well below the average, then James Bester took a share, she was just a little wippet of a thing, she has since developed into a quality filly, we will now press on to the Oaks.”

“I made my mind up I wanted to win V R C Oaks, I have some nice fillies around me, it would be great to win the Oaks with one on them.”

Ladbrokes Classic Stks. 2000 m Time 2.02.48

Trainer, Darren Weir, comments re Cliff’s Edge “it’s amazing sometimes when you get on a bit of a roll.”

The right horses with the right jockeys, he is now tops to go to Bendigo for the Cup that leads into the four days at Flemington.”

‘Cliff’s Edge, he was ridden a great race by John Allen, nothing bothers him, he rides flat horses and jumpers alike.”

“Allen is about the only jockey around now that mixes flat riding and the jumps, he takes it all in his stride, it was quite common to mix flat riding and over the jumps in a previous era.”

“The horse has a good form line and you can only win, he is a great chance in the Bendigo Cup, the mile and a half will suit him, you need a lot of things to go the right way, you need to draw a good barrier, I’m sure he will be among the favourites in the race.”


Moonga Stakes 1400 m Time 1.23.44

Trainer Darren Weir comments re Ulmann, ‘’he is a good horse, a bit of rain helped and the way the race was run, the winner ran well and second horse, Burning Front, was very

When it was suggested that you had to be on the speed Weir refuted that, “ Ulmann came from well back in the field, that horse was stalking them.”

“He is going to Perth, we will take a few over hopefully, anything can happen, you pick out 10 and finishing up taking 2.”

“Lindsay Smith said we can use his place, which is a huge advantage, with the number of horses we have, you have to chase the Carnivals.”


Harrolds Caulfield Sprint 1000m Time 56.28

Trainer Henry Dwyer comments re Snitty Kitty,” a race record that is all good, every race she runs in she either wins or runs second.”

“She does it without raising a sweat, she is a dynamic mare and keeps on improving, she has been winning restricted races and now won a Group 2 race.”

“That was a Group 2 she went around in today; she pulled up as if she had never been around.”

“She hasn’t put it all together yet, once she does that I think she is going to be a pretty good mare.”

“I would like to see her in the Oakleigh Plate in the Autumn, her real chance to win a Group1.”

“Now that she won so well today, she will get a break, there is no point in going to Flemington for a Listed race.”

Henry Dwyer is well aware he has a very good mare, still improving, he will rest her up and dream about the Group1 Oakleigh Plate in the Autumn, a win would increase her value tenfold.”.

Caulfield Cup 2400 m Time 2.27.66

Co Trainer David Hayes comments re Boom Time,” we thought he would run well although we had other horses in the race, he was a good place chance, it was just an amazing run, I just saw him getting out, he hit the line strong.”

“It was a run that reminded me of Fraar winning the Caulfield Cup 24 years ago, ridden by Peter Hutchinson.”

“I knew the horse had a bowed tendon all his life and had run a shocker in the Sydney Cup, he was building up and was not very marketable at all, but I didn’t want to see the horse leave the property so I purchased him myself.”

“We are still friends with the former owner, Tim Loxton, he phones regularly, he is sure to ring tonight. “
