2017 Doomben 10,000 Day Results: Redzel Wins the Group 1

A notable change-up to the winter program in the sunshine state sees this year’s $700,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1200m) replace the BTC Cup as the first elite level of the festival over the decreased distance.

The 2017 Doomben 10,000 winner will be known this afternoon when the weight-for-age sprint steals the show as Doomben Race 7 at 4:04pm (AEST).

There are three other Group races on the card including the $175,000 Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) – Race 4 – for two-year-olds heading towards the JJ Atkins and the Queensland Derby lead-up race – the $125,000 Group 3 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) – closing the card.

Race 8 (4:39pm) – $125,000 Group 3 Mittys Rough Habit Plate (2000m)

  • 1st: #14 Shocking Luck
  • 2nd: #12 Order Again
  • 3rd: #1 Veladero

Progressive young Kiwi stayer Shocking Luck ran the ideal early Queensland Derby lead-up, improving on a first-up loss down under to storm clear on the outside to run home with a three length win over Order Again in the Rough Habit Plate. Really letting down over the final 400m showing off a brilliant turn of foot, the Shocking gelding was very impressive looking ahead to the 2400m Group 1 on Stradbroke Handicap Day. A touch disappointing looking ahead to the same target was the third-placed Veladero for Chris Waller.

Race 7 (4:04pm) – $700,000 Group 1 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10,000 (1200m)

  • 1st: #6 Redzel
  • 2nd: #7 Counterattack
  • 3rd: #13 Derryn

Trainer Peter Snowden celebrated his third Doomben 10,000 success with progressive four-year-old Redzel scoring an impressive victory in the now 1200m sprint, despite markets suggesting it was the younger stablemate Russian Revolution who would be first home. Queenslander Jim Byrne rode the last start Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes winner home, holding off a fast finishing Counterattack from the Chris Waller stables with three-year-old Derryn rounding out the Doomben 10,000 Trifecta in a brave third.

Race 6 (3:26pm) – $125,000 Group 3 Aqwa Constructions Chairman’s Handicap (2000m)

  • 1st: #2 Stampede
  • 2nd: #8 The Chairman
  • 3rd: #7 Chocante

The bookies and punters had the BRC Chairman’s Handicap market order spot on as the best three in betting ran out the trifecta in the Group 3 at Doomben. Getting across from out wide with Kerrin McEvoy aboard was the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained top fancy Stampede coming off the Wagga Cup win. He went back-to-back and posted another good black-type over 2000m leading all-the-way after The Chairman just couldn’t close the gap on the straight, while Chocante finished in third having sat up on the speed throughout.

Race 5 (2:46pm) – $100,000 Listed Suez Queensland Day Stakes (1350m)

  • 1st: #1 Good Standing
  • 2nd: #14 Sylpheed
  • 3rd: #6 I’m A Rippa

James Cummings’ Group 2 winner Good Standing outclassed the Queensland locals in the fifth, improving on a first-up seventh in the Hawkesbury Guineas to charge home over the Toby Edmonds-trained Sylpheed for the Listed Doomben 10,000 Day win on Saturday. After setting the pace throughout, I’m A Rippa for Tony Gollan held on to round out the trifecta in a brave third.

Race 4 (2:06pm) – $175,000 Group 2 Moet Champagne Classic (1200m)

  • 1st: #6 Tangled
  • 2nd: #3 All Too Huiying
  • 3rd: #14 Italia Bella

Chris Waller’s Sydney raider Tangled was too good for the local two-year-olds in the Champagne Classic, running on down the outside to make up the ground and charge home for an impressive victory in the 2017 JJ Atkins lead-up. After the likes of Ours To Keep and She’s Our Star led during the early stages, it was the youngsters from the back of the field who swamped late to salute. Tangled had a good margin to spare over All Too Huying, while Italia Bella caught the eye in third having just her second career start.

  • 1st: #5 Cantbuybetter
  • 2nd: #9 Emphasis
  • 3rd: #2 Jumbo Prince

It was an all-Toowoomba trained Members’ Handicap trifecta led by the Ben Currie-trained five-year-old Cantbuybetter who raced away in the final stages of the mile showdown to win by two lengths on the back of a third at the same track and distance on April 22. Emphasis ran a brave second at big odds in Race 3 on Doomben 10,000 Day, while the favourite Jumbo Prince held on for third having come from the tail end of the field and giving the weight away to his rivals.

Race 2 (12:51pm) – $60,000 Ambassador Travel BenchMark 85 Handicap (1350m)

Double Impact

  • 1st: #12 Maternal
  • 2nd: #4 Double Impact
  • 3rd: #13 Kuznetsova

Darren Beadman continued his excellent early record with the powerhouse Godolphin stable winning the second at Doomben with class Street Cry mare Maternal. The four-year-old was up on the outside of the front-runner Double Impact racing second throughout with plenty of room to loom up as they went around the turn for home. Relishing a drop in grade off her close Hawkesbury Crown eighth last start in Group 3 company, Maternal hit the front and kicked away over the final furlong. She raced off for a commanding three length win over the brave veteran Double Impact, the rising nine-year-old holding for second after setting the pace throughout. In a nice third was the Ben Currie-trained mare Kuznetsova from Toowoomba who did all the work out three wide throughout.

Race 1 (12:15pm) – $60,000 Swire Shipping Class 6 Plate (1100m)

Rare Occurrence

  • 1st: #16 Rare Occurrence
  • 2nd: #5 Invincible Express
  • 3rd: #3 Le Chef

Stuart Kendrick’s Star Witness filly Rare Occurrence dug deep in the first on Doomben 10,000 Day first-up off a spell, making it four from eight at the Doomben track with a lovely late effort and gun ride from apprentice Tiffani Brooker. Rare Occurrence was right up on the speed throughout behind the drifting favourite Invincible Express who was in front looking to go all-the-way and post a sixth straight win. Really trying hard down the straight to reel in the front runner, Rare Occurrence got there in the final few metres nailing Invincible Express right on the line. In third was the Darryl Hansen-trained four-year-old Le Chef who ran a terrific race from out wide.
