Triple Crown to Target Further Riches
Breednet - Media Release - Tuesday, 16 May 2017
A winning double including a Group 1 successand two further Stakes-placed efforts were achieved by Triple Crown runners on what was a stellar weekend for the red silks.

Led by Group 1 James Boag's Premium Doomben 10,000 winner Redzel, Triple Crown hauled in over $500,000 in prizemoney for their owners during the weekend, with the Stakes placed Dothraki and Gold Symphony backing up the son of Snitzel with superb performances at Scone's Standalone meeting, and Rockin' Red Rocket who took victory at Kembla Grange on Saturday.

RedzelIn becoming Triple Crown's third individual Group 1 winner, Redzel joins Dothraki in taking his career earnings beyond the $1 million mark having won over $750,000 for his owners in this preparation alone.

Redzel, a $120,000 purchase from the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale in 2014, will now target future riches in the Melbourne Spring, while preliminary discussions have taken place regarding participation in the inaugural running of the $10 millionThe Everest at Randwick on October 14.

Triple Crown director Chris Ward said: "He's gone out to the paddock now, and he'll have a short break as we get him ready for the Spring. He'll be back for races down in Melbourne like the Moir, the Manikato and the Darley Classic.

"We've had a little bit of interest in him for The Everest which is an exciting concept we have now down in Sydney. I wouldn't be surprised he ends up taking part in a race like that. Hopefully something will formulate shortly."

Chasing million dollar races of his own could well be Gold Symphony, who is on target for a tilt at the Group 1 Ubet Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm on June 10 after continuinghis upward trajectory withan excellent performance in the Listed Yarraman Park Horsepower Luskin Star Stakes.

The leading son of Reward For Effort ended his last preparation by taking out the Listed National Stakes at Canberra on March 5, ahead of subsequent Group 1 Doncaster Mile runner upHappy Clapper.

Co-trainer Peter Snowden said: "He was excellent on Saturday, Every bit as good as the winner. We have a chance of the Stradbroke and it's definitely worthwhile having a crack at with the form he's in.

"He'll go to the Moreton Cup next on June 3 which will be a good preparation for him."

Dothraki was a third Stakes performer on the weekend for Triple Crown, as the six-year-old ran a super race to finish third in the Listed Arrowfield Ortensia Stakes. The son of Mossman has been an excellent earner for his owners, with the $45,000 purchase taking his career prizemoney to over $1.1 million.
