Caloundra trainer Stuart Kendrick tasted success at Doomben on Saturday with Turangga Farm bred two year-old Swiss Ace filly in Hingus Rose.

Drawn in gate four with Tiffani Brooker on board, Hingus Rose was always up on the pace and did best in a thrilling finish to win the 1110 metre juvenile sprint by a long head.


Landing his first metropolitan win on Wednesday at Warwick Farm was consistent country trained Nicconi gelding Akasaki, a $48,000 Inglis Classic purchase from the draft of Turangga Farm.

Trained at Scone by Stephen Jones, three year-old Akasaki led all the way from a wide gate to dominate his older rivals and win the 1100 metre sprint by three-quarters of a length.

It was the fifth win from 14 starts for Akasaki, who has banked over $120,000 in prizemoney.


All roads will lead to Scone this weekend for the Turangga Farm Dispersal at White Park featuring an outstanding selection of weanlings and broodmares.

28 weanlings by a wide range of commercial sires are set to tempt buyers including youngsters by All Too Hard, Charge Forward, Denman, Declaration of War (USA), Domesday, Epaulette, Hinchinbrook, Lonhro, Manhattan Rain, Nicconi, Rubick, Sebring, Testa Rossa, Toronado (IRE), Trusting, Your Song, etc.


The highly anticipated Turangga Farm Dispersal is coming up on July 23 in Scone and Stuart Ramsay’s breeding operation has been in hot form of late with a steady stream of winners including Weston and Sunset Jewel, who both saluted at Wyong on Thursday.

An $80,000 Inglis Easter purchase for Segenhoe Thoroughbreds from the Turangga Farm draft, the Peter Robl trained three year-old Weston (pictured) opened his account with a half length win in the 1350 metre maiden.


Tenacity in a tight finish was a trademark of former Champion Two Year Old Pierro and there was plenty of that quality on show in promising youngster Noviero, who scored a dogged victory at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.

Prepared by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, Noviero was narrowly beaten on debut at Canterbury two weeks ago and went to the post as favourite for the 1400 metre maiden.
