Celtic Dancer Takes Out 2012 QTC Cup

Noel Doyle-trained gelding Celtic Dancer has produced a sensational effort to lead from start to finish in the Group 2 2012 QTC Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm today.

Jumping from the inside barrier, the son of Choisir showed her ability to run on wet tracks to win by a length ahead of Belltone and Joint Chiefs.

The talented four-year-old won the Prime Minister’s Cup at the Gold Coast in similar conditions in early May and when the rain began to fall on Thursday trainer Doyle grew in confidence.

“He’s won three times on tracks like this,” Doyle said.

“If he can get to the lead and lead on his own…he’s a bulldog, he won’t be beaten.”

Talented young jockey Tim Bell was in the saddle in the Prime Minister’s Cup and he was again on board for today’s victory.

“It’s been a fantastic couple of weeks,” Bell said.

“He’s a fantastic galloper…I take my hat off the Mr Doyle, he’s stuck loyal to me”

It marks just the second victory at Group level for Bell who admitted he was thrilled with the result.

“Fantastic, I won my first Group race on week ago, to win some second Group level race as a Group 2 on Oaks Day is fantastic.”

Talented Kelso Wood-trained gelding Belltone backed up his impressive run in the BRC Sprint and had every chance but was unable to run down the tough Celtic Dancer and had to settle with second.

Paying $10.00, Celtic Dancer was one of many upset winners at Eagle Farm on a day that favoured wet-track runners.
