Last start Breeders Classic winners are back in work.
And being readied for their big assignment.
Vanish Hanover and Big Wheels both scored decisive victories in the Listed $25,550 QBRED Breeders Classic Finals at Albion Park on May 23 and both were given a chance to freshen-up in preparation for the Gr.1 $100,550 QBRED Triad Final next month.
The two-year-old features are scheduled for July 25.
Vanish Hanover, sent north by original trainer David Thorn to Charlie Cini, produced a well-timed finish to take the Fillies feature when downing Talent To Spare and Jasper in a time of 1:56.8 when handled by Brendan Barnes.
Raced by her breeders Murray Cole and Beau Watson, the Hurrikane Kingcole – Vogue Hanover filly has won two of her five starts to date.
Rather than returning to Sydney, connections decided to keep her in the Sunshine State.
“We gave her two weeks off after the Breeders and the focus is clearly the Triad now, she’s back in work and progressing nicely so I’m happy with the ways things are going right now.” Cini said.
Big Wheels led throughout to claim the Colts and Geldings feature when holding off stablemate Justa Little Bit and Glitter Strip in a time of 1:56.8.
Subsequent winners from that race include last start Redcliffe feature race conqueror Manila Playboy plus Dynamic Dan, Glitter Strip and Frontliner.
Raced by his breeder John Polson, Big Wheels is a gelded son of A Rocknroll Dance from the former talented mare Washington Lass.
Big Wheels is a younger full-brother to handy type Blacksadance (5 wins - $37k)
Prepared by Chantal Turpin, the talented youngster has won two of his six starts to date.
“We gave him a couple of easy weeks immediately after the Breeders Classic and now he’s back fast working in readiness for the Triad, I’m happy with where he’s at.” Turpin said.
With owners and members allowed back on track this weekend at Albion Park, the much revised winter carnival features commence on Saturday week, July 11.
