Two Winners For Toronado Over The Weekend

After a solid win on the Pakenham Synthetic three weeks back, Greg Eurell's Toronado (IRE) filly Sassy Salitage was heavily backed to keep her record perfect at Moonee Valley on Saturday and she did it in the style of a filly with a future.

Ben Allen parked Sassy Salitage on the outside of the leader, Lady Lupino before kicking clear turning for home to win by one and a quarter lengths from last season's Group II VRC Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m) winner La Tene (Helmet) with the Group III SAJC Breeders Stakes winner Kooweerup (More Than Ready) the same distance back in third.

The daughter of Toronado (IRE) is likely to make her next start in the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley in a fortnight and she also holds a nomination for the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 12.

This filly has has two starts for two wins and has already secured $122,900 in prize money.

Miss How Long cemented her favouritism by breaking her maiden in her third start at Toowoomba on Saturday taking her race record to 1 win and 2 thirds.

We have a few shares left in our stunning Toronado colt so please cocntact Neill for more information.

We are constantly reporting on the success of Toronado’s progeny…which is fantastic as we have a cracking Toronado colt in our stable!After two winners last week, Toronado has kicked off this week with his 4th Stakes winner in Europe and then delivered two more impressive winners in Australia. It is evident that the success he is having in Europe is being reproduced here in Australia. 

Enamour's Lucky Shoes

Sometimes stories just like this make you smile... While chatting to his dad, Dave, young Lachlan O’Neill, stated that he was a bit down on his luck. Now Dave and his wife Elizabeth, who own shares in Bonita Bella, Enamour, The Champion One in Five Club and Mai Time, decided that their beloved young offspring needed a little help. So ever the thinker, Dave, contacted us and asked for four used horseshoes that they could give to Lachlan to top up his “Luck Account”.
