Sunday double

Apr 19, 2010

With 20 horses in the spelling paddock, the Bruce Hill stable has been low on nominations but the winners keep coming.

On Sunday, Bruce had two horses Sequastaire and Warrior Within entered at the Sunshine Coast.
 
Bruce gave them both good hopes but a snag came when the grass meeting was switched to the cushion-track after plenty of rain on Saturday.
 
While many trainers scratched, Bruce realised both horses should win and both did.
 
Sequastaire put extra oomph in Bruce's step as he is part owner with great stable supporter Nev Morgan.
 
"I paid $30,000 or so for him and just liked the look of him,"
 
"He put the writing on the wall last start and has always shown me a need to get over some ground."
 
Sequastaire's first win came over 1350m at Ipswich in August and yesterday it was 1600m.
 
"I think he can get over even more ground,"
 
Jockey Paul Hammersley again executed a perfect ride getting a gap between horses in the concluding stages to Backnfive and Williamstown 
 
It added to Morgan's brilliant weekend being also the owner of Rangirangdoo, Saturday's Group 1 Doncaster Hcp winner at Randwick.
 
Later in the day Warrior Within also racing over 1600m and saddlecloth four made it two wins in four starts this campaign.
 
"He is a tough horse," Bruce says with admiration.
 
"He will get up to 2000m and I wont be afraid to get him into some nice races during our carnival"
 
Warrior Within, strongly backed, always travelled well and gathered in early leader Rebounded in the straight.
 
Rebounded got the break but Hammersley, riding confidently, sailed pass in the final 150m to win the Open Hcp easily by 4 lengths.
 
"The owners are a good bunch and I think there are more wins around the corner."
 
"He (Warrior Within) did alot of things early in his career but has it altogether  now."
