Foal for Delegance
Clanbrooke's own city winning mare Delegance, has foaled a Chestnut Filly to Victoria's leading Stallion Written Tycoon ... Read More
Basking in the fact that Clanbrooke has had two winners, trained by different trainers, in the last week made me think today of what our trainers recent results look like. Doing some homework found that Mitch Beer and Max Hinton have had 3 winners from only 24 runners this season. The good news is that two of these winners have come this last weekend - the stable has turned a corner and looks ready to rock'n'roll. Pat Carey has had 5 winners from 48 runners this season including our own Toorak Cowboy at the Mornington Metro meeting last week. Luke Oliver has been a very busy trainer with 11 winners from 77 starters this season and Craig Widdison in Wodonga, is starting to hit his straps with a double today, including As Bad As Tyson for us, and boasts 9 winners from only 45 runners for the season.
With track records like these, is it any wonder that Clanbrooke have started the season well with 5 winners already and a likely glut of starters over the next few weeks. It will pay to follow the stable - why not actually join the stable and come racing with us by taking a share by yourself or with your mates. Give Chris, Brooke or myself a call at the officeand we can tell you what we have available for sale or for lease.

On A Roll
The last month has delivered one of those periods every stable or Syndicator dreams about. Five winners in thirty days - Greidngton, As Bad As Tyson, Just Leave, Purrpussful and Mapping. And this week on Wedneday at Sandown, Purrpussful, Sherpa Trail and Go Gracey will face the starter in an effort to improve the results. Together with the likes of Nicconi Poni, Miss Hugo a Gogo, Lily's Reward, Toorak Cowboy, Jvala, Lucky Leslie and a host of unraced 3YO's, we think the next few weeks could be a windfall for the Syndicates. It will pay to follow them all!!
First Win for Old Friends
The respected trainer, who has experienced Group 1 success with the likes of Toledo, Bomber Bill and All Time High, was his first in partnership with his son Scott.
The partnership is the latest phase in a family history that started with Russell's father, South Australian racing legend Ted, and entered the partnership stage in May.
Cameron Snr, 59, left it to his 25-year-old son to do the talking after I Boogi's win, and although the family are economical with their words, there was no mistaking the joy they got out of the result.
"It's a great thrill, especially to have Dad here," Scott said. "To get my first winner in town is a good thrill.
"I've ridden work for Dad since I was 14 and I always thought this (training) was the way I was going to go.
"I wish he had the horses he used to have - that would make things a lot easier - but I think we're doing a good job with the team we have now."
Vale Roger Booth
The racing world was stunned last night with the news that well known Victorian Jockey, Roger Booth had died after collapsing in the Mounting Yard at Darwin’s Fannie Bay Racecourse on Saturday. It is believed that Roger had a heart attack on the way to the hospital and passed away not long after.
Whilst Roger Booth is not a high profile jockey , he is known extremely well right throughout the racing world, particularly in Victoria. Living at Cranbourne, Roger did most of his early riding and work at Mornington. He was a respected track rider and his work was sought by a number of trainers at both Mornington and Cranbourne.
Roger first started riding in 1987 and has ridden all over Australia.
Our association goes back to 1989 when he rode for one of our first trainers for Sharing Winners, Bob Armstrong at Mornington. Roger rode a few winners for us but also did a lot of track riding for Bob and a number of our other trainers. In all, he probably rode around 40 of our horses in races.
In recent years that has continued for Clanbrooke Racing and as late as last year, Roger Booth rode Irish Rose at her first race start at Mornington and won.
Roger also rode Kareeming in a race .
He continued to ride a lot of our horses in work and was a respected track rider and judge of a horses fitness, form and ability.
In many respects, Roger Booth is one of the many unsung heroes of racing, who did the hard yards behind the scenes as a track rider for a number of trainers and owners in the Mornington , Cranbourne and Pakenham areas.
Our sincere condolences to the Booth family and the racing fraternity.
Dean Humphries, Chris Dickinson and the Staff of Clanbrooke Racing.
We are having an Owners Day at the metro Queens Birthday meeting at Mornington on Monday, June 12. We have booked the Peninsula Suite which is situated next to the Mounting Yard and looking down the straight. The area leads out to our own decking to view the horses in the Yard or to watch the race. Three of our trainers will be in attendance - Pat Carey, Mitch Beer/Max Hinton and Cindy Alderson. We are in the process of organising for two of our yearlings to be paraded between races and the afternoon will include what we hope is an exciting innovation - we will be auctioning a share in one of our Premier Sale purchases as well as a Silent Auction for a share in another recent purchase. The cost - subsidised by Clanbrooke - is only $70 per head and you get the following -
