Although finishing 7.2 lengths from the winner, VA PENSIERO ran a strong race in the 2013 edition of the 1200m Group 1 Tooheys New Golden Slipper. Tim Clark said "He got bashed around a fair bit out there, but he was pretty game. His run was much better than it might have looked." VA PENSIERO had his momentum stopped on a few occasions in the run, but still managed to pick himself up and work through the line. He has the attitude and heart to develop in to a very nice colt.

DE NEDERLANDEN made it three in a row at Nowra today in the Terry Harvey's Carpet Court Greenwell Point Cup. Adam Hyeronimus found the front and dictated terms to suite himself. DE NEDERELANDEN showed a clean pair of heels when Adam asked him to quicken at the turn and managed to hold off the fast finishing NUCLEAR'S BELLE. The gelding has gone from strength to strength this preparation and may now be tested back in town. Congratulations to the owners who have been rewarded again for their patience.

Power Shadow Notches Up Nice Win

The Scott Singleton trained Dane Shadow mare Power Shadow scored an impressive win taking out the CL1 1200mt at Cowra on 02/04/13 defeating 2nd - Shadows and 3rd - Alert Lady.

The mare appreciated being first up and coming into the race fresh without even a trial but still did a few things wrong. She was tardy away from the gates which meant she was further back than expected but was able to pick herself up and motor home to score impressively.

Scott will now look for a similar race in the coming weeks to aim for back to back wins.

Sweet Home Chicago ventured to Bairnsdale on debut and delivered a great result for the stable in winning on debut for our good friends and new client Hillside Thoroughbreds . The filly settled off the pace early during the run and then was pulled out wide by Kane Bradley to gun down the leaders to win softly on the line and there appears better things installed for this very nice 3yo Flying Spur filly who was a Magic Millions graduate.

After a number of frustrating placings on the provincial circuit trainer Scott Singleton decided to send his 3yo Trial Ground to the country track at Bathurst for an easy kill and a boost of confidence.

Sent out the $2.30 favourite Trial Ground didn't let the punters or his owners down by jumping straight to the lead before jockey Jay Ford released the brakes and ran away for a convincing 2.3 length win over 2nd - Oscar Tosca and 3rd - Grey Pariz in the RURAL PRESS LIMITED CG&E MAIDEN HANDICAP over 1100mt.

DE NEDERLANDEN showed another glimpse of the ability he had shown as a young horse by winning the 1600m Jim Beam Class 2 Handicap at Wyong today. Ronnie Stewart was able to take up the running from barrier 3, although not everything went according to plan.

Taken on at the 1000m mark and again pressured from the turn, DE NEDERLANDEN was able to fight off all challenges and win. After a protest from the 6th place HEZASMARTYPANTS was dismissed, DE NEDERLANDEN recorded his 2nd win from 3 starts this preparation. Congratulations again to the owners who have been very patient with the horse, and deserve his current success.

Sweet Victory In Tough Win

With several racing meetings being called off due to the continued rain in Brisbane the connections of Sweet and Vicious where glad to see the Eagle Farm meeting go ahead knowing their mare liked it soft. The meeting started off as a Heavy 10 but with some sunshine managed to get an upgrade back to a Heavy 9 after race 1. But the rain returned and by race 8 the track was back at a Heavy 10 with the threat looming that the meeting might be called off.

Fortunately the rain eased and by the start of race 9 the track was a bog but the skies were clear. Sweets and Vicious was well away from barrier 3 and settled midfield on the rail and travelled comfortably in the conditions, she continued to make good ground up the rail and when the leading horses came off on the turn Jimmy Byrne pushed her up the inside and she settled in for a slog fest with the leader Denwood. In a stirring battled that lasted the entire length of the straight Sweet and Vicious out toughed her opponent to bring up her 5th win and 3rd win since joining the in form stable of Les Ross.

Quality 3yo Hvasstan has been freshened and is ready to run the race of his life against the champion 3yo All To Hard in this Saturday's Group 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington. Whilst the 1600m maybe a little short trainer Peter Gelagotis has kept the horse happy and fresh and have focused all their attention in building through the campaign and this was the best option going forward and his work at Sandown suggested he is ready to run to his best of his ability and that is good enough to be competitive in this company.

Handy sprinter Just A Girl shook off her rivals in the 1st race at Broadmeadow on the 21st of February in an event where the bookies were sending out the handy Southern Girl as an odds on favourite against the second favourite, trained by handy Warwick Farm trainer Scott Aspery in the MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION MAIDEN HANDICAP 900m , but it would appear that the latter (Just A Girl) would arise the victor.

The 3yo Not A Single Doubt chestnut filly was coming back after a 24 week spell, after having a couple of starts last prep for a 2nd at Newcastle and a 7th at Wyong respectively. But the first run back had her parading a treat and like all Aspery turned out horses, she was ready for the fight and she was unaware the bookie boys preferred something else.

After 4 consecutive placing's last preparation, it could be easy to assume CERTAINLY ROSA may never get her chance at victory. Today at Gosford, aided by a nice ride by the inform Tommy Berry, CERTAINLY ROSA was able to get her maiden win out of the way.

Stopping the clock at 63.74 seconds, and holding her rivals at bay, this may have the mare winning again soon. As a half-sister to the very smart SNITZERLAND, CERTAINLY ROSA can now find herself in the breeding barn as a winner. Congratulations to some very patient connections.
