Flamboyer Finds Form for 2016 Glasshouse Handicap Win

Kelly Doughty’s Gold Coast-trained galloper Flamboyer continued his good winter form in Queensland on the weekend taking out the Glasshouse Handicap 2016 at the Sunshine Coast.

The five-year-old son of Clang backed up from a 1400m Eagle Farm win the previous Saturday, which he won by nearly three lengths, and went up in class on Caloundra Cup Day in the $175,000 Listed Glasshouse Handicap (1400m).

Getting in on the 54kg minimum, Flamboyer ($5.50) thrived dropping back from his 59kg winning weight the previous weekend and flew home to post a 1.8 length victory over the Robert Heathcote-trained WJ Healy runner-up the start before Saluter ($4.40).

The beaten favourite meanwhile was the Darren Weir-trained Group 1 champion Stratum Star ($3.40) who lost few admirers running under a length further back for third carting the 61kg hefty top weight in the Glasshouse.

Premier Brisbane hoop Jeff Lloyd replaced Blake Shinn in the saddle of Flamboyer and from barrier six took the eventual winner straight to the front for a bold all-the-way performance.

Lloyd now has a clear 1-1/2 winners lead in front of closest rival Jim Byrne in the Queensland Premiership race with 67-1/2 metropolitan winners in total for the season to date.

Also pleased with the Glasshouse Handicap result was Doughty’s husband and the horse’s part-owner Gary.

“He just controlled the race and was never going to really get beat,” he told the Sunshine Coast Daily.

“He’s now won eight races (from 36 starts) so he’s a good horse and it takes him pretty close to half a million in prize money.

“We’ve got his grandmother (Tiercette) and she had nine foals to race eight winners so it’s been a great family.

“It’s a brilliant race to win.”

Keeping the horse at home in Queensland proved a winning move by Doughty who had earlier considered a trip to New South Wales for a shot at Wednesday week’s Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) during the Grafton Cup Carnival.

“When he won at Eagle Farm last week it was his first run in six weeks. We knew he would be improved but we decided the Ramornie would be a high-pressure race,” she said.

“The Glasshouse looked a race Flamboyer could lead and then kick in the straight. That is how it turned out.”

Doughty added the likely next-up option for Flamboyer was the $100,000 Listed Tattersall’s Mile (1600m) at Doomben Racecourse on July 23.
