TWO STAKES PLACINGS FOR LCA RUNNERS
Two members of LOVE CONQUERS ALL’s first crop have run blacktype placings on Saturday.

High-class mare SAVANNA AMOUR is already a 5-time stakes winner (1 x Group 2, 3 x Group 3 & 1 x Listed) with $659,323 in the bank, so it was no surprise to see her put in a gallant performance at Group 3 level over 1300m at Sandown today.

The daughter of LOVE CONQUERS ALL was just 2.5L astern of boom galloper Osborne Bulls in a Group 2 sprint over the Flemington carnival at her most recent start and she appears to be regaining the form that culminated in her running 4th in the Group 1 Tatts Tiara at the end of her last preparation.

Up north, I’M A RIPPA was beaten into third by just 0.3L over 1200m in the Listed Keith Noud Quality at Doomben.

A 7-time winner of $1,050,757, I’M A RIPPA took out the Group 3 BRC Sprint and Listed Eye Liner Stakes during a winter campaign earlier this year and the millionaire son of LOVE CONQUERS ALL was brilliant first-up here.

I’M A RIPPA will target the rich Magic Millions race day in January.

With 78% winners to runners, 9% stakes horses to runners and an average earnings index of $92,405 per runner from his first crop - LOVE CONQUERS ALL can lay claim to being one of the best value stallions standing at stud.

THIRD STAKES WIN FOR MALIBU STYLE
MAGNUS gelding MALIBU STYLE has recorded his third blacktype win after claiming the Listed Doveton Stakes (1000m) at Sandown on Saturday.

Ridden by Ben Thompson, the super-consistent galloper stopped the clock at 57.21 seconds as he out-sped the closers to win by 0.3L, in a hotly contested sprint race.

A 10-time winner of $665,625, MALIBU STYLE has been a mainstay in Neville Parnham's Ascot barn since debuting in May 2014 as a two-year-old.

Remarkably, MALIBU STYLE has posted a win in every season he has competed in for the WA trainer, who purchased his champ for just $40,000 at the 2013 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale.

The Group 1 Winterbottom (1200m) is in two weeks and Parnham’s travelling foreman Mark Sestich said the gelding was booked to return home on Sunday.

“He’s booked on the plane to go back to Perth tomorrow night for the Winterbottom,” Sestich said.

“He’s been a wonderful horse and with the form he’s in he deserves his chance at the Group 1.”

MAGNUS has recorded 42 individual winners for the 2018/19 season, which places him in equal 13th position with NOT A SINGLE DOUBT on the Australian sires table.

STAR FIGHTING SUN COLT RESUMES WITH BIG WIN
Stakes winning FIGHTING SUN colt CHESS STAR has produced a scintillating first-up performance over 1100m at Rosehill on Saturday.

Last seen in March 2018, when winning a two-year-old stakes race at Moonee Valley, CHESS STAR has resumed with a devastating win for Sydney training combination Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.

The attractive chestnut smashed the clock and set a class record of 1:03.64 when posting a comprehensive 2.3L victory over a small but classy field.

The unbeaten, odds-on favourite Roheryn ($1.50 SP), tried in vain to run down the leader, however CHESS STAR packed too many guns.

“He showed them a clean pair of heels and has stamped his dominance,” said Bott.

"Chess Star is a serious colt and he will be targeted at the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas in January.”

“We obviously raced Fighting Sun for the same connections and he was a hugely talented two-year-old. We never saw the best of him,” added Bott.

“He was a colt we thought would have won the Slipper well and truly and this horse is a great example of Fighting Sun’s progeny.”

CHESS STAR takes his overall record to 2 wins and 2 placings from 4 career runs. His prizemoney total of $156,650 already exceeds his $120,000 purchase price at the 2017 Magic Millions Yearling Sale, where he was snapped up by the Sun Bloodstock team.

FIGHTING SUN was crowned Victorian Champion First Season Sire 2017/18.

SQUAMOSA GELDING SMASHES THE CLOCK
Ken Boman reports via ANZ Bloodstock News.

After four days of some of the best racing of the season in Australia, a sectional times star surprisingly emerged in winning the Benchmark 80 (1100m) at Flemington on Saturday – one of a small number of non-stakes races at the carnival.

He was the Danny O’Brien-trained gelding Order Of Command (Squamosa), who had settled back in 12th place before producing a great turn of foot under Damien Oliver and fighting back for a comfortable neck win in a time of 1:03.28.

But it was his sectional times that impressed; Order Of Command’s 200 metre breakdown (from the 1000m) was 10.71, 10.56 (400m in 21.27), 10.56 (600m in 31.83), 11.16 (800m in 42.99) and 11.75 to give him a very fast 1000 metres in 54.74, the fastest of the day.

It was the lightly-raced Order Of Command’s ninth start and his third win (with four placings) and his first run since finishing second to Brave Song (Your Song) in a Three- Year-Old Handicap (1100m) at Flemington in July.

Also noteworthy was Order Of Command’s prior start, in which he ran on for second to the highly talented sprinter Nature Strip (Nicconi) in the Creswick Stakes (Listed, 1200m) at Flemington on July 7.

His effort in winning on Saturday, supported by that earlier promising form, suggests that Order Of Command is likely to be effective in sprints at stakes level in future.
