Jadah Rose, a good looking Totally Ruthless mare, is rated Victoria's top racemare at present, particularly after her success in the Wedderburn Pacing Cup, held at the Maryborough twilight meeting.

Starting off the joint backmark of 20 metres, Jadah Rose worked hard to reach the lead in the middle stages and then bravely held off her rivals down the long Carisbrook straight.

She has now won 27 of her 41 starts.

A five-year-old, she is out of the Armbro Aussie mare Karamea Toastime, who left an earlier winner in Karalta Shine 1:52.6, who won a string of classics in Tasmania before being sold to US interests.

Karamea Toastime was a sister to the Harold Park and Moonee Valley winner Clickety Clix 1:59.5, being by Armbro Aussie from Toast To Missy, an American bred mare by Bret Hanover.


O MORE TROUBLE, who broke maiden metropolitan ranks at the Cranbourne Cup meeting -- she had been runner-up in five of her previous six starts -- ranks as a half-sister to the Victoria Youthful Stakes winner Gipsy Belle.

She was sired by the Most Happy Fella horse Troublemaker (a leading sire of fillies).

Both are out of Mini Maverick, by Maverick Almahurst (son of Albatross) from Can Opener, by Danny Hanover from the Canny Scot mare Dustcan. Can Opener, a half-sister to four winners, left the good Moonee Valley winner Mandy's Nipper 2:00.9, dam of Mark Adam 2:02.1 (5 wins).

No More Trouble, who boasts a record of 1:57.2, is the best member of this family for two decades or more.


WEST Australian bred and Victorian trained Jay Pees Ruler, who led throughout to win the SA Italian Cup at Globe Derby Park, is the 13th foal of his dam.

A six-year-old Million To One entire, he is out of Perene Bay, by Captain Hook from the Jack Oro mare Oro Dior, a half-sister to the dual Inter Dominion heat winner Indian Chant.

Jay Pees Ruler, who won the WA Country Cup as a four-year-old, ranks as a half-brother to a top flight juvenile in Perene Maverick 1:58.1 ($149,258), Perene Hanover, Perene Ginger and others.

Perene Bay was the dam of seven winners.


LOMBO POCKET WATCH, Half A Mill and Roydon Holmes, who all won on the same card at Gloucester Park, are closely related.

ombo Pocket Watch, who trounced his rivals in the WA Golden Nugget Prelude, is a four-year-old entire by Jet Laag and one of his second Australian crop.

e is from the Australian Derby winner Misty Maiden, by Windshield Wiper from Smooth Gale, by Smooth Fella from Mary Gale, by Armbro Hurricane from the Thurber Frost mare Roydon Mary, who established a very strong branch of the Parisienne family.

eanwhile, Half A Mill is a four-year-old Million To One gelding out of Lombo Lucida, by Northern Lights from Liberty Lombo, by Hilarion from Annie May, by Smooth Fella from the Scottish Hanover mare Roydon May, a half-sister to Mary Gale, the third dam of “Pocket Watch”.

nother half-sister in Roydon Dream (by Lumber Dream) figures as the grand-dam of Roydon Holmes (Holmes Hanover-Roydon Glenda-Smooth Fella).

MISS WINFREY, who made an impressive debut at the Moonee Valley day meeting, is a four-year-old Il Vicolo half-sister to a top pacer and Shepparton Gold Cup winner in Unique Icon 1:56.4.

They are out of the lightly raced Tender Reign, by The Contender (son of Albatross) from Smokey Jane Armagh, by Smokey Armagh from Jane Luck, a daughter of the imported trotter Good Report.

Jane Luck was a most successful broodmare, being also the dam of the Dullard Trotters Cup winner Jodie Armagh and capable pacers in Armagh Luck 1:59.2, Bess Armagh and Canny¡¯s Luck.

Tender Reign was a half-sister to the thrice Harold Park winner Nellie Go Lightly 1:59.4.


SUNDON sired the winners of feature trotting races in two States last weekend. Sundons Gift, a six-year-old gelding, captured the $25,000 Group 3 Cranbourne Trotters Cup, while five-year-old Four Carat won the Rome Trotting Cup at Globe Derby Park.


THE four-year-old Oliver Royal is proving a splendid advertisement for the Cam Fella horse Armbro Oliver, a grand pacer himself and who stands at the Bayunga Lodge stud, Shepparton.

Oliver Royal was a smart end-to-end winner at Albion Park in 2:00.5 - the 10th win of his career. Alkoomi, the dam of Oliver Royal, was only lightly raced and was a My Glengower mare from Armbro Aspen, an American bred mare by Albatross.

This is the family of Race Time, Storm Damage and Warm Breeze, all top racehorses and sires.


THE Matt's Scooter horse Mach Three, whose first crops have made a huge impact, served the second highest number of mares in Canada this year. He covered 186 mares at Tara Hills Stud, Ontario.

The leading first crop sire in Canada in 2006, Mach Three is standing his fifth Southern Hemisphere season at Stallion Station, Toolern Vale, near Melbourne, where he is fully booked.

Other Australian-based stallions which served large books in Canada are As Promised (182 mares), Life Sign (151), Modern Art (123), Grinfromeartoear (105), Presidential Ball (76) and Mach Three's studmate Royal Mattjesty (71).


THE deceased champion Fake Left took the siring honours at Albion Park with four winners -- Blacks A Fake, Disco Lemonade, Natty Nitro and Bill On The Hill. The first named trio are all out of Vanston Hanover mares.


SANDLER, who led throughout on debut at the recent Carrick (Tas.) meeting, is a two-year-old colt with some worthwhile blood.

By the US champion Die Laughing, he is out of Esperia Lee 2:03.7, a Keystone Scotch mare from Game Hope, by Black Gamecock from the Brahman mare Sand Lass, and tracing to a noted foundation mare in Millie C.

Sand Lass was a very successful broodmare. She threw seven winners including a top racemare in Lassken TT1:58.1, who won 25 races, Skyring Boy 1:58.2, Happy Chap and Seba Sands.

A fifth foal, Sandler was bred by Bacchus Marsh real estate agents Graeme and Marcus Rayner, trading as Hopetoun Park, and represents their first success as commercial breeders.
