Clanbrooke Racing Garners Owners Award
Members of the Thoroughbred Club of Australia, an association of owners throughout Australia, came together recently to celebrate the end of the 2014-145 racing season and to announce the winner of the 'Thoroughbred Club of Australia Owner of the Year Award'. That honour went to syndicator Clanbrooke Racing, headed by Dean Humphries, who will be presented with his award at a Caulfield Cup Day luncheon on-course. The award is based on each member nominating a stable of four of their horses with points accrued based on results throughout the year. Notwithstanding the achievements of their four nominated horses, statistics reveal that Clanbrooke's winning strike rate, from their entire stable, was better than every trainer in Victoria, bar one – Ciaron Maher (19.76%). During the past racing season, Clanbrooke Racing achieved an amazing strike rate with 18.7% winners and 39.6% placegetters from a total of 139 runners. Clanbrooke Racing, whose yearling purchase prices average around $30,000, rose to national prominence with $22,500 yearling buy Arapaho Miss. The daughter of Danehill Dancer won the Gr1 VRC Oaks, earning her syndicate over $710,000 in prizemoney before being sold for $600,000 as a broodmare.

Our HUSSON Colt is now ready to commence work with trainer Darren Weir. With only 30% remaining and only $2000 per share, what are you waiting for?
Foreplay now a major bushfire.
Following on from the Flemington win of Jalan Jalan last week at Flemington, Saturday saw another Foreplay win in the city this week at Caulfield. Just For Starters, from a Red Ransom mare, won first-up after 11 months and now boasts two city wins from only four starts. This again demonstrates how this stallion can upgrade his mares.
He is a regally bred son of Danehill out of super producer Procrastinate (Jade Hunter), from the stallion making family of Centaine and a half brother to Stakes Winners, Laisserfaire, Time Thief, A Time for Julia, Personify.
One of the top 3YO colts of his generation, running third behind the champions Alinghi and Fastnet Rock in Australian's premier sprint handicap, the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington, he boasts the fantastic winners to runners strike rate of 66%
From limited runners to date Foreplay has sired 4 individual Group winners headed by million dollar earner Decision Time, runner up in the Group 1 Golden Slipper and recent Hong Kong Group 3 winning sprinter Rad.
Look at the Horse Shares Tab above to see the beautiful Foreplay we purchases at this year's Premier Sale to be trained at Denouston Park, Mornington by Jason Warren.
Foreplay is burning.
Foreplay has had a very big Autumn and Winter and has topped off the season with a very smart City winner last Saturday at Flemington. The Colin Little trained Jalan Jalan raced to a 3L victory against the Fillies and earned herself a shot at Black Type in the new season. The win was one of most impressive on the Fillies ranks for the season and highlights the attributes of this under-rated and under-used stallion. Clanbrooke has a fantastic looking Foreplay colt for syndication - check him out on the Horses for sale page.

Northkape provides immediate return
A $5000 yearling, Northkape delivered an immediate return on investment to her owners with a dominant debut victory in the Inglis VOBIS Gold Plate at Cranbourne on Sunday.
Trainer Robbie Griffiths targeted the feature, which carried a $100,000 purse and $30,000 in Super VOBIS bonuses, with the speedy filly and she played her part to perfection.
Jockey Craig Newitt went straight to the front once the barriers opened and Northcape ($9) really kicked clear in the straight, beating For a Song ($9) by two-and-a-quarter lengths.
The win delighted a big band of owners, who were making plenty of noise on course.
“There’s a big team here and they’re very excited – I think there’s almost a few tears there,” stable representative Jade Matthews said.
“It’s such an incentive the Inglis bonuses. They’ve got a cheap buy out of it and won a $100,000 race.
“Most of these guys are doing it for the fun of it, not the money, so this is fantastic for them.”
Northkape, who was purchased at last year’s Inglis VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale, won a recent trial which suggested she was going to be competitive in this event.
“She’s a professional – she’s done the job in her trials at home,” Matthews said.
“We didn’t quite expect her to be that strong on raceday but she’s always been very professional.
“Craig gave her a perfect ride.”
Newitt thinks there are a few more wins in Northkape as she continues to develop.
“She’s probably the smallest horse in the race by a long way – there’s not much of her but she’s got a motor,” he said.
“She’s got a lot of upside to her.”

And the Beat Goes On ... And On for Kareeming
We thought it was great to win a city race at Caulfield with the very genuine Kareeming, but then to follow up a fortnight later and win again at Moonee Valley has sent a lot of our Members into raptures. At MV, Kareeming jumped up to 2500m for the first time and to make it even harder, started from the outside gate. Patrick Maloney took him across the field after a lovely getaway and he settled nicely behind the leaders before letting down to win narrowly but comfortably.
These two city wins at 2000m and 2500m certainly open a whole new world for the horse over the next couple of seasons. Apart from the obvious races at the top levels, there is a myriad of options now for him at just below G1 or G2 level - and most for very good prizemoney.
It also goes to further emphasise what we have said before on the website - you don't need to spend a fortune to have a chance at getting a good horse. Clanbrooke has built its reputation on securing horses at reasonable prices and Kareeming is now another to prove that point.
Already many of the Kareeming owners have moved to take up shares in the Toorak Toff Colt also to be trained by Pat Carey. In fact as of today only 20% remains so be quick if you want to join the fun.
