Woodside Park stud shuttler Cable Bay (Invincible Spirit) was represented by his second stakes-winner at Newmarket overnight when the Henry Candy-trained filly Jouska powered home from near the tail of the field in the Listed Boadicea Stakes (6f).

“That was great, she loves it here, Candy told Racing TV.

“When she ran in the Cornwallis (Gr3 Stakes) as a two-year-old last year I thought this is going to be embarrassing because she was stone last at the dip but she absolutely flew (for third).

“I said to Rob (Hornby) today just let her do her own thing and take as much time as you like. He said she adored coming up that hill and attacking horses.

“She’s very genuine, has great big ears on her and is very genuine.

“She’s been pretty consistent all the way through and will stay in training next year. She’s a lovely big filly with a delightful character, very game, very competitive,  just the sought of filly you want.”

Purchased by Creighton Schwartz Bloodstock for 31,000gns out of the Trinity Park Stud draft at the 20717 Tattersalls Foal sale, Jouska is one of five winners from six to race out of the Kingmambo mare Quiet Protest, which includes the stakes-placed Wasim (Acclamation).

With his first Australian crop to hit the tracks this season, Cable Bay returns for his fourth season at Woodside Park where he stands for a fee of $9,900.


A member of the first Southern Hemisphere crop of Invincible Spirit’s group winning son Cable Bay shone at today’s Seymour breeze ups in preparation for next month’s Magic Millions Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale.

Stopping the clock in 10.41 seconds, the colt was the quickest of 42 lots timed for the 200 metre breeze at the Victorian based session.
