The ever consistent SPINNING DAWN took out the last metropolitan race of the 2014 / 2015 season at Canterbury Park on Wednesday 29th July.

It was a deserved win after the son of SPINNING WORLD was somewhat unlucky at his previous two starts at Bathurst and Grafton, where in the Guineas he put in a mighty effort after having to go back from his wide draw and came home from last at the 400 metres to finish third to the eventual winner Braces trained by Greg Hickman.

After winning on the horse almost two months ago, Christian Reith was again on board for the 1550 metres Benchmark 70 Handicap, with the duo proving to be a lethal combination.

THE Publishing yearling's dam Strange Aura caught the attention of trainer Stuart Kendrick when he was bought at the Magic Millions sale.

"I really liked the mare when she was racing,'' said Kendrick after that same Publishing offspring News Editor broke through at the Sunshine Coast on Wednesday, July 29.

Strange Aura had six wins and four placings in a 23-start career for more than $170,000 in prize money.

News Editor is also now a winner, breaking through at his seventh career start, with four other placings.

Ridden by Tim Bell, the three-year-old gelding won at his first start over the mile.

Having placed over 1400m last start, he relished the extra ground, winning easily by two-and-a-quarter lengths as a $2.60 favourite.

"Patience is now paying off for his owners,'' said Kendrick.

"He's always show ability. He's just been a little immature," he said.

Punters were on the mark at the Gosford Race Club's race meeting held on Thursday 30th October when Dubawi Dream (4yo bay entire by Dubawi out of Dream Beauty) saluted the judge, winning by 5 1/4 lengths easing down, after being heavily backed in late - $5.40 into $3.20 favourite.

It was a nice ride by Tim Clark, taking the lead early, he allowed the horse to roll along at a good clip, temporarily joined by the Gosford trained Golden Rule on his outside, Tim
maintained his position and on approaching the 500m mark asked his mount for an effort. Itwas a winning move, under vigourous riding by Clark, the horse was pulling away from the rest of the field with every stride in the home straight, going to the post under a hold. Sweet Jaffa trained by Rick Worthington finished 2nd with the Anthony Cummings trained Poet's Fortune in 3rd position.

KENDRICK Racing will have its first Melbourne spring runner after exciting three-year-old colt Thief Of Hearts booked a trip south with a dominant first-up Doomben win.

The Show A Heart three-year-old will target the Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Flemington after he led all the way in a 3YO (1200m) on Saturday (September 20).

It was only his second career start and his first run since he flagged his ability with a second placing in the listed Dalrello 2YO (1200m) back in May.

"We've always had a good opinion on the horse and had planned the Melbourne trip for this preparation,'' trainer Stuart Kendrick said.

A stewards inquiry was finalised recently.

EVEN connections of the beaten brigade would have found it hard to begrudge Avaladyluck her win at Doomben on Saturday (August 30).

One of the most consistent horses in the Kendrick Racing stable, she scored her fourth career win in the Corona Beach Party F&M Class 6 (1200m).

THEY say patience is a virtue and that is especially the case in racing.

The patience of the owners of Mr Rainmaker paid off when the four-year-old broke through at his 11th career start after five frustrating career placings.

The Darby Racing-syndicated gelding broke his maiden status in good style, winning at the Sunshine Coast over 1200m on Monday, August 11.

Ridden by Damien Browne, he bolted in by four lengths after finishing second over the same course and distance on July 27.

The Scott Singleton trained Adjective won at only his 3rd start in the CHRISTMAS PARTIES @ HAWKESBURY 3YO MAIDEN PLATE (1100 METRES) at Hawkesbury on Thursday the 7th of August.

Settling just behind the leaders Adjective was too strong in the final stages to win well from Najoom and Miss Murray Cod third.

The 3yo Ad Valorem Gelding put the writing on the wall at his previous start finishing second and went one better this time. There looks to be a bright future ahead for this talented Gelding.
