Jacqui’s Joy helps rookie trainer Mitchell Beer earn instant cheers

Trainer Mitch Beer with Jacqui's Joy. Picture: Eugene Hyland

MITCHELL Beer has been around horse racing all his life, so he’s not fooled by his instant success as a trainer.

Beer, 27, joined forces with Mornington trainer Max Hinton in December and won with his first runner, Jacqui’s Joy at Kilmore.

Then the same filly provided him with his first city winner with his first runner when she won at Caulfield on Boxing Day.

Jacqui’s Joy returns to Caulfield on Saturday to try to continue the golden run.

“I’m really enjoying it and would like it to continue for ever but I’m not getting tricked into a false sense of security,” Beer said.

Beer, whose father Les was a prominent country jockey, has worked in stables since he was 16 and has had stints with Lloyd Williams, Russell Cameron and Jason Warren.

He said he always wanted to become a trainer and was intending to branch out on his own before a chat with Hinton saw him change path.

“He was telling me how tough it was a smaller trainer,” Beer said. “He also said he was battling to attract new owners and this is a trainer whose a very good one and has trained many good horses. He’s old school with his training and also with his client interaction. He’s a brilliant horseman and it’s such a great thing he can help me through the early stages of my career.”

Hinton has had success with the likes of Sophie’s Spirit, Grand Seattle, Lodger and Emma Princess.

“I think it’s a classical combination,” Beer said. “He’s an experienced brilliant horseman and I’m a young fellow learning the trade and can help sell the message.”

The partnership has already benefited from Beer’s astute eye as he found Jacqui’s Joy in New Zealand.

“I was in a pub watching her win with a beer in my hand and then got chatting to my friend to see whether she was available as we were looking for a tried horse to kick the partnership off and she fitted the mould,” he said.

After Saturday Jacqui’s Joy will be heading to the spelling paddock and then will return and be set for the Brisbane winter with the Queensland Oaks as her focus.

“I know if she wins Max Hinton will keep me grounded,” he said.

Shares in Colt with Darren Weir ....

The Darren Weir show continues to roll on with two wins at the MM Gold Coast meeting on Saturday. The races were worth $1m. and $2m. respectively and just adds to the rollercoaster run for the Ballarat trainer over the last 2 years. The good thing from our point of view is that we have 30% available in a lovely Husson Chestnut colt being trained by Darren. The horse is nearly ready to trial so this is a last chance to get on the bandwagon of winners. Details can be found under the Menu item above - Horses Available. Contact us quickly.


Artie wins VOBIS Gold Carat

The $150000 VOBIS Gold Carat at Moonee Valley was won by the Artie Schiller gelding Rocky Boomboa trained by Henry  Dwyer. The good news from Clanbrooke's point of view is that we have an ARTIE SCHILLER COLT available for lease. Over half of the horse has been placed and we will be closing the Syndicated in the very near future. A half-brother to the only other raced progeny of the dam, this fellow is a grand-son of the good Stakes Placed (VRC Wakeful and Crown Oaks) mare Mango Dacquiri. At only $750 ingoing and being trained by Mitch Beer and Max Hinton, the colt is in work and more detail can be found on the website or by ringing the office.

Beer for Christmas ..

Our newest trainer, Mitch Beer, training in Partnership with Max Hinton kicked off his career at Caulfield on Boxing Day with a big win courtesy of Jacqui's Joy. Most of our clients are well aware of Mitch's background and we are more than pleased to say Clanbrooke already has 5 horses in the stable with the possibility of more to come. One of our horses with Mitch and Max available to everyone is a LEASE  in an ARTIE SCHILLER Filly. Only five shares remain at an ingoing of only $750 per share. Mitch selected this filly from the draft at Emirates Park and she is in full work and will be ready to race by the end of January or early February. How can you go wrong - we will know whether we have a nice horse within the next three months. Contact the office quickly.

Think you can't afford a FASTNET ROCK? Think Again...

Stay tuned here for details later today about a FASTNET ROCK Filly ON LEASE!!!
What a great Christmas Present! To be trained by our G1-winning trainer Pat Carey.
Only $1000 ingoing Management Fee (per 10%)  - $330 per 10% per month.

Christmas Cheer

Jason Warren's Christmas function on Sunday capped off a very good weekend for Clanbrooke horses. On Saturday at Stawell, Striking Love ( Stryker - Coeur DÁmour ) trained by Jason, was beaten by the proverbial cigarette paper when trying to break her duck. After a very lack-lustre last prep, Stryking has shown in her two runs back that she has re-discovered her zest for racing and that first win is just around the corner.

On Saturday evening at Cranbourne, Charlie's Dream ( Myboycharlie - Respect Sensai ) broke through at her fifth start. The filly showed plenty of ability in her debut twelve months ago at Flemington on Cup day but something went missing in the Autumn. This time in however she has shown good form firstly with a third at Warrnambool and then outstaying the opposition at Cranbourne. Robbie Lang feels she will go from here as we get her over more distance than the 1400 on the weekend and she just may be a horse to follow through the summer.

Clanbrooke Bloodstock strikes

Great to see one of Clanbrooke Bloodstock's purchases at the 2014 Sales has kicked off her career in great style. Backstreet Lover (Street Cry x Romantic Ballerina) has the perfect opening record - two wins from two starts and to make it even better, she won in convincing style at Sandown last week. Congratulations to Jason Warren and his group of owners. Many more wins in store for this lady.

For interest, we would also report that our former Northern Meteor gelding Alpha Auriga, won his fifth race on the weekend when he won the Moulemein Cup in NSW. He has now won two country Cups and holds two Track records!!

Hotmail problems with new website

If anyone is having problems receiving updates on the new website - and this applies generally to some owners - could they please contact and we will pass them on to our software supplier for a fix.

Invitation to Jason Warren Open Day

Jason Warren trains from one of the best establishments in the State. Denistoun Park on the Mornington Peninsula is a fully enclosed farm boasting grass and sand tracks, swimming facilities and walkers. In addition, the property also has a great array of spelling paddocks to suit all horses. Jason is having his annual Open Day this coming Sunday - December 15 - and would like to invite all Clanbrooke owners and friends to come and enjoy the day looking at the horses and the property. Lunch and refreshments are provided. This is a great opportunity to sample a top-class stable environment not far from the city. If you would like to attend, just contact us here at the office so we can RSVP on your behalf.

Welcome to our newest Trainer

It has been a little time coming and a lot of bureaucratic gobbledegook but MITCH BEER is now a fully licensed Trainer. Our congratulations to him on achieving a lifetime dream. Mitch most recently has been Assistant Trainer to Russell Cameron, Jason Warren and of course Max Hinton. Mitch and Max will train in Partnership under the MBH Racing and Breeding banner. Clanbrooke has already invested in Mitch and Max with shares in the Canford Cliffs Filly, Stryker Colt, Magnus Colt, Artie Schiller Colt and Samuelsson. Good luck Mitch as you start your journey.

Who needs a Mare?

if anyone is interested in breeding, we are able to offer either of two mares to someone with a good home. The first mare is the two-time winner MY SISTER RUBY by the Stakes winning sire Fubu  ( by Last Tycoon) from our own 7 times Umatilla winning mare GREEN SAPPHIRE. The second mare is the lightly raced Domesday winner NORMAN QUEEN. Both mares are available for FREE. Anyone interested, please contact the office.

A new website - not without problems

Many of our owners and friends have noted the new website coming together. Firstly we must point out the change is as a result of our Software Supplier making profound changes to their platform and users are merely observers to the change. We have heard from many of you regarding some of the problems, all of which we have provided to the Software people. So please bear with us during this period as we can be as frustrated as you some of the time.

One item that has reared its head is the lack of a LOGIN box. We are led to believe there will be no need in the future for a login as all communications already go to individuals via email and obviously not open to the public at large. What we have not got at present is a history for your horse and this has been communicated to Software for a future fix.

We are happy for any feedback with things you see that you feel are not quite right and we will pass on.

The Magnus cross that works

It was refreshing to see a local up and coming stayer make his mark at Caulfield on Saturday. That horse was Magnapal who won the Naturalism S. beating the highly rated import, The United States and in doing so, won himself an automatic start in this year's Caulfield Cup.

Magnapal is by the Eliza Park International stallion, Magnus from the Kenny's Best Pal mare, Luxapal. What is more exciting for us at Clanbrooke about this win is that we have a 2YO Colt by Magnus from the Kenny's Best Pal mare, Montamigo. This colt is bred on exactly the same cross as Magnapal and like Saturday's winner, we have a very high opinion of him. We purchased him with Mitch Beer at this year's Classic Sale in Sydney and he has furnished into a magnificent type who already shows he has a touch of the X-factor.

Contact us for more information.

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.

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.

Contact us for more information on our Foreplay colt.

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 - contact us for more information.

Thinking of buying a share - try these facts ....

We have talked in the past on this page about their being no need to spend a lot of money in the hope of getting that next good horse. Each year, Clanbrooke has been able find that elusive horse to give us fun without it costing the national debt. We are always on the lookout for VALUE FOR MONEY.

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.
