• Immaculate Secret gets there for her maiden city success

The colours have been in good form lately and the team will be hoping it can continue at Pakenham today on their richest race and Saturday stand-alone meeting.

Congrats to the team at Corstens Racing on the tough win of Immaculate Secret last night at the Valley. Things didn’t go according to plan, but she dug deep, Dylan Dunn didn’t panic and she got there on the line. The full sister to farm bred Montoya’s Secret could be headed for her own Black Type success. 

But today we have a couple of runners in the Gatecrasher, albeit with a difference. 

Mr Quickie runs in the amalgamated colours of Rosemont Stud and Wylie Dalziel Racing and hasn’t he kicked them off in fine style! Four wins from six starts, he’s a 3yo in the rise and the step up to 2000m should pose no problem. His mother was a 2000m city winner in Perth and his father, Shamus Award, won a Cox Plate.

Mr Quickie wins at Sandown last start in the Wylie Dalziel/Rosemont colours

Weiry has him in a happy place and he can continue his winning ways here. 

He was sold by the farm at the Gold Coast as a staying 3yo prospect and he looks all over that. Very happy we bought back into this fella!

The other headline horse we bred, sold and bought back into is our Cups hero Runaway for Gai and Adrian.

Runaway wins the Geelong Cup

He was only 3rd up when he won the Geelong Cup and fourth up into the Melbourne Cup only 40-odd days since his 1st up run of the campaign!!! Not a bad effort but it all caught up with him. He gave us all a great thrill though and after a mini freshen and back to the mile and half of today’s rich cup, he’s spot on for the challenge. 

Silly odds really so each way all day to give us all another reason to dance! 

Some might not call this “dancing”! Melbourne Cup day celebrations for Runaway
