Tara Madgwick - Sunday, 14 May 2017

Daysee Doom wins the Dark JewelPlaced in Group races at three of her past four starts and a brave fourth in the Group I ATC Coolmore Classic, the daughter of Aquis Farm's Domesday at last found her time to shine.

Sent out favourite for the 1400 metre sprint, she fought tenaciously to the line for apprentice rider Andrew Adkins to claim a long head win.

"You've got to give these kids the chance," Quinton said. "They can't win these races if they're sitting in the jockeys' room.

"I've always been one to support them in these races as well. It's a great thrill for me and him and everyone concerned."

Adkins was grateful for the opportunity given to him by Quinton and the connections of Daysee Doom(image Steve Hart) .

"I just can't thank the owners enough for sticking by me," Adkins said. "Every run to be back on top.

"Ron and everyone in the stables. I'm just so grateful.

"It's a big thing for a trainer to put an apprentice on when you can't claim in a race. Especially to be a Group III.

"It's pretty special and I'm pretty excited."

DomesdayQuinton suggested he is likely to give Daysee Doom a break now before coming back for the spring although admitted the Queensland winter carnival was still a possibility.
