Victoria’s leading trainer presents a bevy of well-bred and to date well-performed prodigies at Bendigo tomorrow night as the Alabar Vicbred Super Series gets under way.

Last season, Stewart had 10 runners on opening night for five heat wins from seven races. She finished second in the two heats she didn’t win and claimed the quinella in two of the events she did.

This year Stewart has nine runners engaged across seven 2yo heats. Will the domination continue?

Given her Vicbred form in recent times, it made perfect sense – funnily enough that’s also the name of a Stewart-trained pacer who won her Vicbred heat on this night back in 2016 – to invite the leading trainer on to the Inside Word podcast to give punters insights into her line-up, and she was happy to oblige

Stewart’s two-year-olds in action tomorrow are last-start Group 1 winner Pandering, Amelia Rose (whose grand-dam produced Niki No No, Wardan Express, Majordan, Soho Valencia and Yrubla among others), winner of four of five Treasure, Home Grown Classic victor Mirragon, one-for-one son of Lovelist Adapt, Kualoa’s half-sister Jemstone, last-start winner Beale Street, and supremely talented Home Grown Classic quinella pair Artmede and Maajida top round out proceedings.

Some of the other headline acts to keep an eye on tomorrow include Leeton Breeders Plate winner The Tiger Army for Laura Crossland, a winner of four of six to date who finished second last start in the Group 2 Sapling Stakes at Menangle, West Australian filly Askmeilltellya for trainer Kat Warwick, Realnspectacular for Terry Coelli and Blake Jones, Michael Stanley’s Yejele Hammer and Andy Gath’s Night Spirit, who have both run several placings in recent times and are itching to break through, smart fillies Summertime for Ted Caruana and Alice Kay for Adam Kelly, and Gavin Lang’s bold son of Courage Under Fire Withoutthetuh.
