By David Silver

Welcome to another week of The Last Stride.

This week sees the Queensland breeders display their wares at the Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale.

Last years sale was a monster off the back of the Spirit Of Boom success and we go into this week's sale with another "boom" sire in Better Than Ready.

Better Than Ready is the leading Australian First Season Sire by winners and prizemoney and he is actually going better than Spirit Of Boom at the same time last year.

The win by his son The Odyssey in the AQUIS 2yo Jewel Saturday at the Gold Coast was stunning and then just to put the icing on the cake, Sunday at the Sunshine Coast, Better Than Ready's 2yo first starter The Sinner winning effortlessly by 3.5 lengths in the QTIS Maiden Plate over 1000 metres. That was individual winner number 14 for Better Than Ready with his stock having banked nearly $1.4 million in prizemoney.

I am uncertain as to how this sale will go but based on the 2018 results, you would think it should still be a good sale for vendors having the Better Than Ready & Spirit Of Boom progeny in big numbers.

In saying that, I cannot see the figure's being reached that we saw last year, those were extraordinary.

And I have to throw this in!

Remember, The Last Stride still has shares available in Better Than Ready's rising two year old half brother by dual Group 1 winner Press Statement available.

Don't hesitate to give me a call on 0413 603 588 or email for further details.

The talk of the track Saturday was all about "you know who" actually being allowed on course at a metropolitan meeting. Social media went into overdrive Saturday night after "the stable" recorded five winners for the day and comments were savage. If we were in any other State in Australia this wouldn't be happening. The Queensland participants are filthy (and rightly so) that this situation continues with many tempers at boiling point.

In 45 years of racing I have never witnessed anything close to this, the hatred is alarming.

The best thing participants (especially media) can do from here on is just wait for the process to play out, do your best to not even acknowledge "The Gingerbread Man" exists and remember, at the end of the fairy tale, "The Gingerbread Man" gets FUBAR :)

Racing Queensland has advised the $200,000 TAB QTIS 3YO Jewel will be transferred to Eagle Farm this Saturday (23/3) following its cancellation on the Gold Coast.

With steady rain downgrading the track to a heavy 10 after race six, stewards made the decision to abandon the final three races on the card at the Gold Coast last Saturday due to visibility concerns.

The TAB QTIS 3YO Jewel will be run mid-program at Eagle Farm, with the scheduled Class 4 Plate (Set Weights) over 2200m to be transferred to the Sunshine Coast on Sunday, March 24.

The current field for the Jewel will remain in place with scratchings reinstated.

Additionally, the Listed TAB Goldmarket Handicap will be re-scheduled to the Gold Coast on Saturday, March 23 with fresh nominations called today (18/3).

The Goldmarket will be run as the final race on the card at Aquis Park to provide jockeys with the opportunity of competing in the Jewel at Eagle Farm and in the Goldmarket on the Gold Coast on the same day.

Latest Racing Update


The last two weeks has featured our fillies by Rich Enuff and Real Impact and if you want to know more please don't hesitate to get in touch.

This week's Editorial features our Press Statement colt, the half brother to the 2yo sire of the season in Better Than Ready.

The Last Stride's second colt for the new season is a big strong staying type by the now deceased Group 1 winning stayer of 12 races in Jakkalberry from the Haradasun mare Warrior Code.

This rising two year old is an absolute ripper and Jakkalberry as a sire is doing the job in both New Zealand and Australia with horses winning in the top stables such as Matt Cumani, Chris Waller, Murray Baker, etc. His oldest progeny are just three and he already has Group performers.

The mare of this yearling, Warrior Code, a three quarter sister to the smart mare Shirl Pegasus, has had one to race for one winner.

Her sire Haradasun is becoming a tremendous broodmare sire having just eight runners to date for five winners and one place-getter including the very smart performers Quality Approach and Zoutori.

This a very unique, inexpensive partnership and if you want to know more please don't hesitate to get in touch, New Zealand is a great place to travel, Karaka Millions??
