What a remarkable chain of events at Randwick on Saturday, when one of our most consistent horses, was nominated as the winner of race 7 over 1,600 metres, only to be declared a dead heat winner, several minutes later. KINNERSLEY was ridden forward by jockey Adam Hyeronimus and took up the running to control the tempo throughout. Turning for home, KINNERSLEY found the line strongly and looked the winner.......
Exciting 2 year old colt, LAW (by Denman) returned to the track with a dominant win by three and a quarter lengths over 1,000 metres at Randwick on Saturday. In a small field, jockey Nash Rawiller elected to have the colt settle behind the two leaders and on straightening, he eased LAW to the outside of both and his impressive acceleration quickly allowed the colt to cruise to the line for an easy victory.
UK import THE BARONET (GB) showed that he is developing into a lovely stayer who looks well capable of winning at a higher grade than his Canterbury win on Wednesday over 1,900 metres. Jockey Tim Clark allowed the gelding to settle mid field for the majority of the event and just prior to the home turn, he eased him off the rails to try to get clear running, finding the gap between the 2 leaders including his stablemate TAMARIZ

The daughter of Exceed and Excel had drawn wide barriers for the majority of her race starts to date and the coveted barrier 1 allowed jockey Tim Clark to have EXCELEINE settle just behind the leading group, obtaining lovely cover in the run, which enabled the filly to come off the fence at the turn and make a spirited run to the line.....
Our Magic Millions yearlings have had a couple of weeks to "draw breath" and now it's school time, with many of our babies commencing their breaking in at Muskoka Farm, the property which has so successfully educated our Star yearlings for very many years now. Toby Pracey, the senior horse breaker at Muskoka does a great job taking the youngsters along slowly and giving them a wonderfully rounded education.
We have always loved Magic Millions race day and 2014 certainly didn't disappoint. DRIEFONTEIN showed her remarkable toughness when winning the Magic Millions Fillies and Mares race, and WHITTINGTON quickly followed up with a win in the Magic Millions Sprint, to give us a "Star running double" on the day.
