PRESS REPORT - READ ALL ABOUT IT
Exiting two year old filly Press Report franked her trainers opinion of her today when finishing a gutsy 2nd in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes.
The outsider in what was a hot field, Press Report jumped well and settled in the box seat on the boggy Rosehill track. She sprinted well in the final 200m to secure second place behind Mossfun and beating the likes of Magic Millions winner Unencumbered and unbeaten colt Law.
The Silver Slipper was only the filly's second race start, her first being a second placing behind the talented Memorial. "She is not nominated for the Golden Slipper but were in a really good position, if she wins her next start well the owners will have a decision to make as to whether we pay the $150,000 late fee into the Slipper otherwise we will proceed towards the Royal Randwick Stakes in the championships"
Press Report's next start will likely be in the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes at Randwick on March 14.
Turbulent Jet wins at Rosehill
This weekend saw Turbulent Jet at his best again when winning at Rosehill over 1350m.
The four year old showed his commanding turn of foot when defying the odds by winning on the leader biased track. Ridden by Melbourne Cup winning jockey Michael Rodd the son on Jet Spur got back in his usual fashion, peeled out on the turn and flashed home to run them down in what was the second fastest final 400m recorded on the day.
Turbulent Jet has now won 4 races from 9 starts with career earnings of $114,205
Turbulent Jet wins at Randwick
Turbulent Jet broke the trend of the day at Randwick on Melbourne Cup day by coming from behind on a leaders bias track. The four year old settled last in an even run race and made up seven lengths from the turn to overpower his opposition in the concluding stages.
His win was especially good given the heavy bias on the track, he was the only horse to make up ground on the day. His turn of foot was especially prevalent when jockey Nathan Berry switched the stick to the near side and he let off an explosive finish.
Turbulent Jet has now had 6 starts for 3 wins and $60k prizemoney
A great day had by all.
Congratulations to his owners;
Andrew Davison, Graham Singh, Con Hadjiparaskeva, Sheryl Pilkington, Roger & Lorraine Ford & Mark Richards

Yesterday [30/11/2013] the team saddled up three runners at Rosehill.
Press Report (Written Tycoon - Grenada) looks to have a very promising future after she kicked off her career in race 2 an open 1100m for 2yos. The filly was slow to begin and after copping a few bumps and being checked on the turn rattled home for 2nd behind the very impressive Memorial.
Calvo started in race 5 and after beginning well took a sit behind the leader, he got a gun ride from new jockey Damien Thornton, pushed his way out at the top of the straight and hit the line well to take out the race at $61/1. The win wasnt unexpected by the stable, Calvo having put in some of his best work during the week was feeling fantastic going into the race. This win was Calvo's 7th from 31 starts. He has now amassed over $160k in prizemoney.
Well developed, strong 2yo filly by the champion racehorse and sire Octagonal.
