Detours made it two wins from two Winter Carnival starts and trained Peter Snowden said that the Ad Valorem mare had done enough after adding another black type win to her record.

“She’s got nothing else to prove, she’s a Group 3 winner, Group 2 placed, won three stakes races, she’s got the black type we need for breeding and I would think she’s well placed to go to stud,” Snowden said.

Snowden had mapped out a two race Queensland campaign for Detours and the mare rewarded the stable with a winning double after taking out the Listed $150,000 Attwood Marshall Lawyers Silk Stocking (1200m) at the Gold Coast on May 4.

“She’s not the most brilliant filly we’ve ever had at Crown Lodge but gees she’s one of the most honest. She really does run to the best of her ability every start she has had and such was the case at the Gold Coast the other day. She didn’t win by a big margin but you knew she was going to stick her head out and win,” Snowden said.

Winning rider Kerrin McEvoy was able to take full advantage of the inside barrier and after being first out of the barriers was able to give Detours the run of the race in the box seat behind the leader Bound To Plush.

McEvoy was then able to find a way in between runners in the straight and went on to score a comfortable win from Sharnee Rose and Dystopia.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She
    never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I think everything wrote was actually very logical. But, consider this, what if you added a little
    content? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website,
    but suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I
    mean Detours off to stud after winning Bright Shadow Handicap – HorseRacing.com.au is a little
    boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how
    they create post titles to grab people interested. You might try adding a
    video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    be giving us something enlightening to read?

  35. Micheline

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  36. Abdul

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.

    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more

    Fantastic work!

    be much more useful than ever before.
