Twenty-five three year olds have been entered for the Grand Prix Stakes which is a very important lead up race for the Group 1 $600,000 Channel 7 Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm run a fortnight later.

Prized Icon, who won the 2016 Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington during the Spring Carnival, is trainer James Cummings’ only nomination and is coming off a last start second to France in the $400,000 Inglis 3yo Guineas (1400m) at Scone’s standalone Metropolitan rated meeting on May 13.

Volatile Mix is one of three Darren Weir trained three year olds entered for the Grand Prix Stakes, the other two being Mongolian Wolf and Rockstar Rebel.

Volatile Mix was strong at the end of the 2500m of the Group 1 $600,000 South Australian Derby at Morphettville on May 13 and will be one of the main chances for the Queensland Derby.

Mongolian Wolf score an impressive first up win for the Weir stable in the Group 3 $150,000 Mostyn Copper Group Frank Packer Plate (2000m) at Randwick on April 15 but them finished down the track when eleventh to All Out Of Love in a 2000m 3yo Handicap at Caulfield on May 13.

Weir’s third Grand Prix Stakes nominations Rockstar Rebel is still racing in restricted class and was a last start second in a 2200m BenchMark 64 Handicap at Bendigo on May 5.

Sydney’s leading trainer Chris Waller also has multiple nominations for the Grand Prix Stakes and has entered Black On Gold, Sizzling Bullet, Veladero and Wu Gok.

Veladero is the best performed of the Waller entrants with three Group 3 placings at his last three starts, his latest being a third to Shocking Luck in the Group 3 $125,000 Mittys Rough Habit Plate (2000m) at Doomben on May 13.

New Zealand co-trainers Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards brought Shocking Luck to Brisbane for the Winter Carnival and the three year old has put himself into Grand Prix Stakes and Queensland Derby calculations with his win in the Rough Habit Plate.

The Brian Smith trained Order Again is only one of a handful of locally trained three year olds nominated for the Grand Prix Stakes and threw his hat into the mix with a seven and a half lengths win in a 1500m BenchMark 70 Handicap at Eagle Farm on May 3 followed by a second to Shocking Luck in the Rough Habit Plate.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. 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 entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a
    year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!

    You really make it appear so easy together with your presentation however I find
    this matter to be really something which I think I would by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I’m looking
    ahead for your next post, I will try to get the hang
    of it!

  32. Lelio Vieira Carneiro Junior

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people
    consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to
    hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    same in support of you.
