In the end Tosen Stardom was too good for his rivals, holding off Sovereign Nation (2nd) and Petrology (3rd) who both ran on late from the back to round out the Toorak Handicap trifecta. Weir confirmed a clash with super mare Winx was likely next-up on the cards for the Toorak Handicap winner Tosen Stardom in the 2017 Cox Plate on October 21.

  • 1st: #17 Mighty Boss
  • 2nd: #11 Kementari
  • 3rd: #16 Catchy

Mick Price‘s first emergency Mighty Boss has scored a massive boilover in the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas 2017 results after only making the field with the scratching of Summer Passage earlier in the week. Ridden by Michael Walker, the $101 roughie came from nowhere up the inside in a terrific late effort to run down the Godolphin-raced Kementari, while the filly Catchy put in lovely run to finish third behind the boys in the stallion-making race.

  • 1st: #2 Gailo Chop
  • 2nd: #3 Johannes Vermeer
  • 3rd: #6 Jon Snow

The Darren Weir-trained 2016 Mackinnon Stakes winning import Gailo Chop relished the step-up to 2000m in the 2017 Ladbrokes Stakes at Caulfield, posting a gutsy win for his sixth success from nine starts at the distance. The Caulfield Cup-bound mare Bonneval was favourite but found herself too far back to challenge as the market mover Gailo Chop got to the front at the 200m and flew home. Closing late down the outside was the flying Aidan O’Brien-trained Irish raider Johannes Vermeer for second, while stablemate of the beaten favourite Jon Snow ran third in a photo. It is now onto the Ladbrokes Cox Plate for a clash with super star mare Winx for Gailo Chop.

  • 1st: #5 Aloisia
  • 2nd: #1 Shoals
  • 3rd: #2 Alizee

Aaron Purcell celebrated his first Group 1 win as a trainer after taking over for the suspended Ciaron Maher, Azamour filly Aloisia scoring the upset Thousand Guineas result second-up for the spring. She was runner-up in Brisbane over the distance as a two-year-old behind Capital Gain in the Group 1 JJ Atkins and improved on a lead-up fifth at the Caulfield track, flying home late down the inside to outstay her rivals. Shoals got the box seat third throughout and finished runner-up again after her second in the Thousand Guineas Prelude, while the Flight Stakes winner Alizee finished third as the beaten favourite in the Thousand Guineas trifecta.

  • 1st: #4 Fast ‘N’ Rocking
  • 2nd: #2 Religify
  • 3rd: #3 Dibayani

The Lindsay Park stable made it double on Caulfield Guineas Day with veteran galloper Fast ‘N’ Rocking breaking a 730 day winning drought to claim a gutsy late victory in the Weekend Hussler Stakes. It was a battle of the seven-year-olds in the dying stages with Fast ‘N’ Rocking wearing down the front-runner and market mover Religify who just failed to go all-the-way carrying the hefty 60.5kg weight. Fast ‘N’ Rocking was third on the outside making up ground as they hit the straight before moving up to Relgify, the gallopers battling it out stride for stride from the 100m before the winner dug deep and drew clear to salute second-up by a short half-head. Dibayani, a stablemate to the winner, got up for third.

Race 4 (2:05pm) – Group 2 $400,000 Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes (2400m)

  • 2nd: #1 Wall Of Fire
  • 3rd: #8 Gallic Chieftain

Ballarat-based English horseman Archie Alexander has a livewire chance in Saturday week’s Caulfield Cup field after the Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes win, earning the ballot exemption, by his smart German-bred stayer Lord Fandango. The five-year-old outstayed his rivals, taking advantage of the tiring front runners who dropped right out of the mix as the backmarkers ran on late. Lord Fandango defeated the eye-catching Hugo Palmer-trained English raider Wall Of Fire (2nd) and the Darren Weir-trained Gallic Chieftain.

  • 1st: #4 Cool Passion
  • 2nd: #8 Pedrena
  • 3rd: #9 Princess Of Queens

The Tony McEvoy-trained Cool Passion enjoyed a Group 3 win third-up in the race registered as the Northwood Plume Stakes on Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day after driving through late. She was settled just off the pace after two luckless runs this time in, her latest an improved third at Morphettville in black-type company over 1100m. She relished the step-up to 1200m, a distance she has a top record over, and continued her good form third-up having also run three runs in last preparation. Cool Passion got the better of the tiring front runners late after being in a perfect position stalking, driving through to beat Pedrena by a half-neck who just held off perennial third placegetter Princess Of Queens.

Race 2 (12:55pm) – Group 3 $150,000 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m)

Invincible Star

  • 1st: #1 Invincible Star
  • 2nd: #10 Counterplay
  • 3rd: #3 Jorda

Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott were rewarded with a Group 3 win on Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day thanks to a dominant performance from Melbourne Cup Day winner last spring, Invincible Star. The three-year-old was second-up at Caulfield off a seventh to gun filly Houtzen, who runs in Sydney’s The Everest Race today, in the Group 3 Champagne Stakes (1200m) at The Valley last time out. Fitter for the run, the only concern was her outside barrier draw in the Thoroughbred Club Stakes. She jumped beautifully though and quickly overcame the gate, controlling things up front for an all-the-way win with Stephen Baster in the saddle. Invincible Star quickly put away her rivals after straightening for home 200m out, waltzing to the line in really good time having given a powerful kick at the top of the straight. She beat home an improved Counterplay, while the rails-drawn Jorda for Godolphin held for third.

Race 1 (12:20pm) – Listed $120,000 Inglis Debutant Stakes (1000m)

Qafila

  • 1st: #12 Qaflia
  • 2nd: #9 Sacred Sword
  • 3rd: #5 Encyption

The Lindsay Park stable got Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Day off to a winning start thanks to the debut win of promising Not A Single Doubt filly Qaflia who was ridden to victory in the first by Damien Oliver. Qaflia settled back in the race, but Oliver allowed her to balance up, got back on the inside and made up nice ground on the turn. It wasn’t all smooth sailing as she failed to quicken at the top of the straight, but showing enormous potential she picked up the leader and pacesetter Sacred Sword to win by a neck. Rounding out the Inglis Debutant Stakes trifecta in third was the Godolphin-raced Encryption.
