A Double Shot Of Alcohol

AlcoholMorphettville based trainer Richard Jolly purchased Lot 152, a chestnut colt (pictured as a yearling) by Bianconi from Tendue, at Adelaide’s 2010 Magic Millions yearling sale from Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm for $25,000. The yearling was syndicated among a large group of owners and was named Alcohol.

Without winning Alcohol showed enough early promise for Jolly to send him to Victoria to tackle a $100,000 race at Moonee Valley. Alcohol won the mile race by half a length. He was ineligible for the $100,000 extra bonus offered by Inglis on the race, however he was qualified for Super VOBIS and that entitled to a share of the $30,000 Super VOBIS bonus.

During his next preparation, Alcohol was runner up at Group 3 level in the Chairman’s Stakes over 2,000 metres at Morphettville and performed admirably in the SA Derby.  He won twice at Morphettville during his next preparation before embarking again on an interstate raid into Victoria for another $100,000 race. This time the venue was Flemington and the journey 2,000 metres. He won by a length and a half.

Last Saturday with Jake Toeroek on board Alcohol returned to racing after an injury enforced lay off. He was sent out at long odds over the 1,200 metre Morphettville journey, but the punters had it wrong. Grinding late Alcohol fell in to record his fifth victory and increased his career prizemoney to more than $240,000.

Alcobro (2)Jolly also purchased a full brother to Alcohol (pictured as a yearling) at Adelaide’s 2013 Magic Millions yearling sale from Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm for $36,000. This yearling was named Alcobro and Alcobro shares many of the same owners as his older brother.

Yesterday Alcobro had his first race start at Halidon over 1,000 metres. And just like Alcohol Jake Toeroek wearing Jolly’s blue silks with a pink fleur-de-lys, yellow sleeves and a blue cap was up. Alcobro over raced outside the leader but was strong when it mattered and ran away in the latter stages to win by more than three lengths. Alcobro has a long way to go to match the feats of his older brother – but it was certainly an inspiring start.

Two Way StreetFour year old gelding Two Way Street (Street Cry x Street Smart – pictured as a yearling) was the third horse to carry the LTF brand into the winners stall for the weekend. Impressively, in just his third race start, he won the first at Deagon by more than six lengths.

Skidoodle’s Sons Win on Consecutive Days

Lot 27,Strategic x Skidoodle_05-02-2013_GEN_Lauriston__1156Tudor, pictured as a yearling, stepped out at midweek city class last Wednesday at Bendigo in a 3yo race for colts and geldings over 1,100m. Tudor was taken to the lead by apprentice Jake Bayliss setting up an opportunity to display his turn of foot. He did not disappoint and stole a race winning break from the bend. Runner up Fast Cash was not comfortable racing along the fence inside runners and was taken back and then outside to the better part of the track. The Wendy Kelly trained gelding stormed home impressively and looks like a horse with a bright future. Tudor held off the late finisher to win by more than a length. The race carried Super VOBIS and VOBIS Gold bonuses. Tudor collected bonuses and prize money totalling $42,000.

Velonski [8197 Xtra Large]Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm bred Tudor is by Strategic from Encosta de Lago mare Skidoodle. Skidoodle’s first foal is 5yo Velonski by Falvelon. Velonski, pictured as a two year old courtesy of previous part owner Karen Hyland, won on just the day prior at Mackay. It was his first race in his new stable for trainer Phillip Pengelly.  Although only small he again proved his toughness carrying 59kgs to victory. Velonski has now won five races and earned more than $130,000.

Coupe Express Keeps On Motoring

2014-07-05_race4Ricky 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”.

Cailin Miss Impresses in Oaklands Plate

Caitlin MissTrainer 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.  Race 3 replay Morphettville 03/05/14

After the race Mick Price indicated that the filly would be spelled and set for the VRC Oaks.

Lot 761,Domesday x Partygoer_10-02-2013_GEN_Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm__993Cailin 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).

Barnato Impresses on Debut

BarnatoSingapore’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.
