Ricky Maund explained his decision to send Coupe Express to Morphettville yesterday, “She is racing in her career best form and deserves a chance at city grade”. It proved to be a winning decision. “Even though she has won two of her recent starts from the front I let Todd know that she didn’t have to be ridden forward”.
Coupe Express jumped well in the 0-82 mares race over 1,200 metres, but Todd Pannell didn’t push her in the early stages, and that decision allowed her to be strong in the closing stages. Finishing fast she bobbed her head when it mattered to edge out Kill Bill who ran a game second. Race Replay R4 Morphettville 05 July 14
The win was Lauriston Throughbred Farm’s Coupe Express’ sixth – her third victory from her last five starts and took her career earnings to more than $90,000.
Coupe Express was not the only horse in the orange and green to salute yesterday. Equissential resumed after a lengthy break at Toowoomba in a benchmark 75 race over 1,200 metres. With apprentice Emma Ljung up the rising 7yo bullocked his way into clear running room before powering to the line to win by over a length.
It was the eighth win for the Neville Saunders trained gelding and raised his prize money beyond $330,000. “He’s returned in great shape and I’m really looking forward to this preparation”.
Coupe Express was quickest to jump from the the wide gate in the 64 benchmark rated Swan Hill race for fillies and mares over 1,300m on Saturday. Dean Holland allowed her to cross and lead to the bend. After the turn Dean took the Ricky Maund trained mare off the fence into the better going. Coupe Express remained strong to the line to win by more than two lengths.
Coupe Express was bred at Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm. It was her second win from her last three starts.
Gordon Richards trained Stimulatte (pictured as a yearling) won his second race and first at city level when he claimed the 3rd at Morphettville yesterday – a 3yo handicap over 1,550 metres. Settling toward the rear, Amy Herrmann brought Stimulatte around the field to comfortably win the event.
Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm bred Stimulatte was purchased by Richards from Lauriston’s draft at the 2012 Magic Millions Adelaide sale.
Trainer Mick Price thought highly enough of Cailin Miss to send her to Adelaide to contest the Listed Oaklands plate for 2yos over a mile yesterday in just her second start.
Cailin Miss was slow away. During the early stages Dean Yendall was happy to settle her at the rear of the field. At the 600 metre mark Dean began to push her into the race and Cailin Miss responded circling the field. After straightening she loomed up to the odds on race favourite Royal Standing and the two looked set for a competitive battle down the straight. In the final stages Cailin Miss drew away to win by more than two lengths with Light Up Manhattan another 3 lengths away in third. The win earned the filly black type.

After the race Mick Price indicated that the filly would be spelled and set for the VRC Oaks.
Cailin Miss by Domesday from Mossman mare Partygoer was bred by Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm and sold to Mick Price at Inglis’ Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale in 2013. She became the third city winner from that draft. Previously 2yos Barnato (Redoute’s Choice x Glimmers) and Ms Mazetti (Lohnro x Amarazeti) had won at Singapore and Caulfield respectively.
Cailin Miss’s dam Partygoer is in foal to Choisir.
Cailin Miss was the first Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm bred yearling purchased by Mick Price. At this year’s Sydney Easter sale Mick purchased two from Lauriston’s draft. They were the More Than Ready filly from Amarazetti (a half sister to Ms. Mazetti) and a Starcraft colt out of Acceleration (a half brother to recent winner Leadfoot).

Singapore’s first 2yo race for the season was held at Kranji yesterday. The 1000m race was the first leg of a six race 2yo series culminating in the Group2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe.
Among the ten horse field was Barnato – a son of Redoute’s Choice and a three quarter brother to Australia’s top rated 3yo sprinter and top rated 3yo filly for 2006-07 – Gold Edition. Barnato was purchased by Derek Brugman for Markus Jooste’s Nordic Racing & Breeding from Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm’s draft at the 2013 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale.
Barnato jumped well and jockey Vagner Leal positioned him just outside the two race leaders. The debutant was a little erratic in the straight but was strong in the final stages to win by three quarters of a length.
Replay: Singapore Race 5 23/04/14
“When you ride a good horse like this, it’s very easy. There’s a lot of speed in this horse and he has a lot of potential,” said Leal after the race.
Barnato, owned by the Saffa Stable, is trained by Patrick Shaw. “I felt the 1000m would be a bit sharp for him. He doesn’t look like a 1000m horse and we will send him out further.”
Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm will be offering Lot 28 at Inglis’ Easter sale. The grey colt by Street Cry is from Barnato’s three quarter sister Gold Edition.
Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm is pleased to announce that five of the yearlings withdrawn from the Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale will now be presented as a Supplementary Draft at the conclusion of the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale, Session 2 on 10 April 2014.
