Striking Denman colt Kuro extended his winning sequence to three when earning his first stakes win in Saturday’s Listed Schweppes Heritage Stakes (1100m).

Trainer Joe Pride sent the black colt to the paddock after finishing fifth in the Group III Kindergarten Stakes at Randwick on April 12.

He has won all three starts since including a pair of short course sprints at Warwick Farm on heavy tracks.

Soon after, Black Revolver will be racing for BlueBlood at Rosehill in race 8 (5:05pm), considering the conditions suit.

Berlutti was impressive in his last start on the 27th of August at Sandown. The colt led the way and raced strongly throughout the whole run, resulting in a win, beating Silent Whisper by 1.25L.

It was a good day yesterday for the BlueBlood Thoroughbreds team where our two stable runners finished a close 2nd at Rosehill (Black Revolver) And Kembla Grange (Lonnero).

The racing day kicked off at Kembla Grange with Lonnero (4 yo Gelding by Lonhro) resuming off a spell and contesting the first race over 1400m. The Lonhro gelding surprised his jockey Jay ford when he flew the gates and took up the running.

Black Revolver was extremely unlucky in his latest outing at Randwick, finishing a close fifth behind Weinholt without ever having a real crack at them. Jason Collett was caught up in the straight and although he tried his best to twist and turn, every gap closed on him.

Second Winner for Wanted

To quote veteran race caller, Greg Miles, it was a “HUGE win” on debut by Wanted 2YO, Kalabek, in the JRA 2YO over 1000m at Caulfield on Easter Monday, missing the kick by two before producing a withering burst from the home turn to score.

Sent out a $1.90 favourite after blowing away her rivals by six lengths in a Cranbourne trial a fortnight ago, Kalabek looked to have little chance after dwelling in the gate and getting caught in the pack.

But Damien Oliver showed why he’s No. 1 on most people’s dance card by…

Lankan Rupee’s world ranking set to rise

RACING Victoria chief handicapper Greg Carpenter is pushing for Lankan Rupee world rating to be lifted following his decisive win in last Saturday’s T.J. Smith Stakes.

Carpenter, a committee member of the World Thoroughbred Rankings, said he would be submitting Lankan Rupee at a 123 rating on the back of his latest Group 1 victory.

Lankan Rupee took a mark of 121 with his Newmarket Handicap win last month, but Carpenter said the Mick Price-trained gelding had risen to a new level.

Carpenter said the winning margin – two lengths – over Buffering, Rebel Dane and Galaxy winner Tiger Tees warranted his…

It’s been a long time coming, but Group I VRC Newmarket Handicap winner Wanted has at last posted his first winner with Rough Justice saluting on debut at Terang on Sunday.

A homebred for Contract Racing, Rough Justice is prepared by Matt Ellerton and Simon Zahra and looked a promising type when coasting home to win by more than a length over 1000 metres.
A half-brother to Group III winner Big Chill and stakes-winner Utah Saints, Rough Justice is the seventh winner from terrific producer Hard Rider, a stakes-placed daughter of Maroof (USA).

Mick Price With Another Impressive 2 YO

Sebring colt Pressing has scored an impressive debut win in the two-year-old event at Caulfield today.

Sporting the colours of Anthony Mithen’s Rosemont Stud, Pressing ($12) ran the 1200m out strongly and finished over the top of the two key players in the betting, Petrology and Armada.

Price concerned about draw and track

MICK Price can’t fault Lankan Rupee, but also can’t hide his concerns about the draw and the track conditions that will prevail for the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes.

Price described as “excellent” the condition of Lankan Rupee, who goes into the $2.5 million race on the back of five successive wins, including the past two at Group 1 level.

What is troubling Price is that Lankan Rupee, rated overnight by the World Thoroughbred Rankings committee as the best sprinter in the world, has never raced on a genuinely heavy track.

And, Price is also worried about how the track will race…

“He should have finished a bit closer,” Price said.

Racing NSW stewards reported that Cornrow was held up in the straight.

Jabali started second favourite in the Todman, but faded to finish 10th while stablemate Eqdaam finished last.

Cornrow ran third in the same trial and Eqdaam wasn’t too far away behind him.

Rocky III – Rock Temple’s 3rd Start

Rock Temple (Fastnet Rock x Tiny Temptress g.) lines up tonight for the 3rd start in his career at Canterbury Park in the Drummond Golf Plate (1250m) at 8:00pm. The start is race 3 of the evening and the gelding has drawn poorly in barrier 11 of 11.

The wide draw won’t make things easy for the gelding but he should have enough gate speed to cross over and hopefully jockey Glyn Schofield can get away with some easy sectionals up front. Champion trainer Chris Waller stated “If he begins well he will roll forward and sit up on pace…

Blue-Bloods Fire at 2YO Trials

The most expensive colt and filly competing at the official two year-old trials in Sydney on Monday both emerged as winners.(Pictured)Wandjina as a yearling

Some 12 heats were run over 850 metres at Randwick with the Gai Waterhouse trained colt Wandjina, looking like a natural racehorse after turning in a thoroughly professional performance.
A $1million Inglis Easter purchase for James Harron Bloodstock from the draft of Arrowfield Stud, Wandjina led for Tommy Berry and kicked clear before being eased down to the line to win by a length and a quarter in 50.04 seconds.

Miracles set to rock Valley

AS everyone catches their breath following the epic Underwood Stakes at Caulfield, Friday night’s Moonee Valley meeting will shape some South Australian spring hopes.

Blue Diamond winner Miracles Of Life will be trying to bounce back from a shock first-up defeat at the hands of Fast ‘N’ Rocking when she lines-up in the $150,000 Group 3 Champagne Stakes.
Trainer Daniel Clarken said all was well with the speedy filly who has the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington in her sights later in the spring.

BlueBlood’s with Victorian Derby Hope

BlueBlood’s  LE MANS (Sebring x Amouge 3 G) (pictured) was gallant in defeat today when he contested the INGLIS Bonus 1700m in town at Caulfield. After jumping well from barrier 2 he settled in the race and made his move around 500m out where he shot to the lead showing his superior turn of foot and hit the front where he looked like the winner 200m out. He just got tackled on the line and finished 0.3 lengths in 3rd spot.

Zabeel back on top of Australian Broodmare Sire Premiership

For the past two seasons straight Zabeel has been Australia’s Champion Broodmare Sire.  He’s quickly re-established his dominance this season and within the first month of the new term he’s back leading the Broodmare Sire Premiership in Australia.

According to figures supplied today by Arion Pedigrees (www.arion.co.nz), Zabeel is already the damsire of 26 individual winners in Australia this season.  The list includes Saturday’s runaway Memsie Stakes-Gr.1 winner Atlantic Jewel.

Another black type winner from a Zabeel mare in Australia so far this season is War, winner of the ATC Up and Coming Stakes-Gr.3.
