Interstate raider Salsonic has produced a huge turn of foot to fly home from the tail of the field and win the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) at Doomben Racecourse this afternoon.

Salsonic missed the kick in the Queensland Guineas, but jockey Hugh Bowman remained patient aboard the horse and took a position on the rails as Dreams Aplenty, Oak Door and Oink set a break-neck tempo from the outset.

Settling into a good rhythm fifteen lengths off the pace of the Queensland Guineas leaders, Bowman began the work the horse into the race as the field approached the final turn, but allowed plenty of time before asking for an extra effort.

Appearing to simply have too much distance to make up on the runaway leaders with 300m to run, the Hinchinbrook gelding mustered a huge turn of foot to fly home on the outside of the field; finding the line a length ahead of $61 roughie Volpino; race favourite Niccanova running on for third.

Bowman was thrilled with the performance mustered by Salsonic to win the Queensland Guineas and believes that the horse will only improve come the 2017 Spring Racing Carnival.

”There’s no doubt that this horse can gallop!” Bowman said.

“I tell you what though, he’s got some growing up to do. He had a real think about it.

“I had to boil a ridiculous tempo early and halfway through I thought ‘well why aren’t they coming back to me yet?’, I should have been tacked on.

“I had to switch him on and get him involved, but if he can grow up in the mind, he’ll be a serious horse come the spring.”

Salsonic returned to the races for a credible third in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) on April 29th and progressed to ninth in the Scone Guineas (1400m) and fourth in the M Taylor Outreach Program BM85 (1600m) leading into the Queensland Guineas this afternoon.

Volpino continued his return to form with a big run in the final straight to finish second, while Niccanova weaved through the field late in the Queensland Guineas, but left his sprint too late.

    This is the kind of thoughtful comment that ought to be commonplace in Catholic blogs. Climate change will affect all of us but it will hurt the most vulnerable first and worst. Is not the defence of the most vulnerable a basic Catholic duty? Isn't that why we are pro-life? Cafod is being faithful to Catholic teaching and we should not hesitate in saying so. Funny how those who are so keen on every jot and tittle of the Vatican's comments on sexual matters are so dismissive of the Holy Father's clear injunction on Climate Change. It is time someone pointed this inconsistency out to Cardinal Pell.

    Yay! I just had my first real listen (ie: not in passing, a whole album) to Santigold, and I'm with you- awesome. I found out about Fever Ray at the beginning of summer, but I felt the need to wait to listen further because it seemed more apropos for midwest winter. Does anyone else do that? Tailor their listening to the season? I think I've always done it. Plus I'll second Maiapapaya's Sneaker Pimps recommendation and add the entire first album, if you haven't already heard it.Now I'm gonna look up Yeasayer and chairlift! Yay! I love to hear new stuff!

    Hi Robb, Yes the sledge lashings were the same type as the old sledgees, but the wood was stronger through being laminated, and we used a nylon type cord instead of strips of seal skin.I have tasted seal, walrus and caribou. Give me caribouu any day, for the others are too oily.It’s been a good week. Spent a morning in an orphange with over a hundred children this morning. A moving experience and so good to see them well cared for thanks to the local branch of the Indonesian Red Cross.Enjo the weekend that is coming up. Bob

    Not sure I agree entirely, I think for most people making a lot of money at blogging is going to present a challenge, but not impossible. If you just do it as a money maker you are doomed, as you know it takes to much dedication and hard work just to “give it a go”, but if you love your topic and have something of value to add the the world I don’t see why you can’t make a living at it. It’s not all doom and gloom!

    Hey Joël,Tof dat je nog ff een kijkje hebt genomen Hopelijk heb je er iets aan gehad! Je kunt denk ik wel al selectie gaan doen. Je bent dan mooi op tijd klaar. Als je medisch gekeurd wordt, dan is die keuring een jaar geldig. Afgaand op een dergelijk voorbeeld zou ik zeggen dat je prima van te voren kan selectie doen, maar niet als je nog meer dan een jaar moet wachten. Mocht je nog vragen hebben, dan hoor ik ze graag!Misschien tot op de DFA!Ben
