NSW cleans up during Brisbane Winter Carnival

The Brisbane Winter Carnival has ended for another year and it was New South Wales and New Zealand-based trainers that scored big. 

James Cummings and Godolphin scored nine wins throughout the carnival, headlined by Stradbroke Handicap winner Trekking. Cummings also won the following races: 

  • Mumm Stakes (Duca Valentinois) 
  • Winning Edge Stakes (Kordia) 
  • Helen Coughlin Stakes (Multaja) 
  • Lightning Stakes (Plague Stone) 
  • Moreton Stakes (Savatiano) 
  • Chief de Beers (Isaurian) 
  • Mick Dittman Plate (Plague Stone) 
  • Silk Stocking (Demerara) 

Chris Waller also has a successful campaign, scoring six wins. Invincibella winning the Group 1 Tattersalls Tiara was the highlight, which also included wins from Kolding, Sexy Eyes, Le Juge and Life Less Ordinary. 

The Group 1 prize went to Kiwi trainer Tony Pike, who lined up The Bostonian to win the Doomben 10,000 and the Kingsford-Smith Cup. 

A quality sprinter, The Bostonian was looking to become the first horse to do the treble and win the Stradbroke Handicap but he missed the jump and was never a chance.
