Above: Queen Sweeper winning at Doomben
A narrow fifth, when beaten less than a length the start prior at Listed level, Kendrick Racing’s 2yo Rich Enuff filly Queen Sweeper highlighted her potential with an impressive win at Doomben to become the sixth individual winner so far this season for her sire.
Winning trainer Stuart Kendrick echoed the sentiments of many trainers who have progeny by Rich Enuff in their stable.
“She’s still a bit of a big kid but getting a win as a two-year-old is great for all involved and we’re pretty confident she’ll really flourish as a three-year-old.”
A narrow third at his only start at 2, it was at 3 that Rich Enuff really came into his own.
Rich Enuff recorded three consecutive Group and Listed victories at 3, stopping the clock at 1:08.13 – the fastest any 3YO colt has ever run over the famed Flemington ‘straight six’ this century, when winning the G2 Danehill Stakes, a race won in the past by G1 producing sires Sepoy and Fastnet Rock as well as the undefeated, World Champion Black Caviar.
Equalling the juvenile mark set by his Champion Victorian Sire Written Tycoon with six first crop winners, Rich Enuff could pass that figure in the coming days with a selection of runners nominated, including his Listed placed daughter Plutocrat as well as last Saturday’s winner Queen Sweeper both nominated for this Saturday’s upcoming Listed Tattersall’s Club Stakes at Eagle Farm.
