Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm continued its winning run this year when the Snowden Racing trained Typecast led home a Victorian-bred quinella at Canterbury on Wednesday.
Typecast tracked the speed and then took over in the straight to easily defeat Gilgai Farm bred filly Bubbleberry in the McGrath Estate Agents Hcp (1250m).
Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm bred horses won 13 races in January and there have been another 5 to date in February. The only downside for the Corinella nursery was the news that brilliant filly Global Glamour has gone shin-sore and won’t continue her Golden Slipper campaign for Gai Waterhouse.
Typecast (3f Exceed and Excel – Show Stealer by Tobougg) had won first-up at Wyong on February 4 and doubled up in style at Canterbury.
“She was very strong late and pulled away in the end which was really pleasing,” co-trainer Peter Snowden said. “She’s improving every time we lift the bar and could make a stakes winning filly down the track.”
Lauriston sold Typecast for $80,000 to Darren Dance’s Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock at the 2014 Inglis Easter yearling sale. Her dam Show Stealer won 8 races culminating with a winning hat-trick at Sandown in August 2011.
Show Stealer has a 2yo Commands filly named Conductress with Jason Warren. The Denistoun Farm trainer went back and bought the mare’s Redoute’s Choice filly for $160,000 from Lauriston’s draft at the Gold Coast Magic Millions last month.
Lauriston will have a draft of seven yearlings at the upcoming Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale:
