Trainer Brett Crawford and jockey Anton Marcus shone in landing at treble at Kenilworth’s Monday race meeting.
The Crawford/Marcus treble commenced when the pair combined to win Monday’s third race with tote favourite Too Cute, followed up when victorious in race six with the promising filly Boomps A Daisy and ended the meeting by taking the last race with Super Silvano.
Zoustar filly Boomps A Daisy was all the rage for Monday’s Tellytrack.Com FM 84handicap over 1000m and she duly obliged well enough, although 13-1 shot Alsflamingbeauty ran on strongly enough in the closing stages to ensure Marcus rode the tote favourite out to win.
The Australian bred 3yo has now won three of only six starts and there looks to be more to come from Boomps A Daisy –who looked a desperately unlucky loser on debut when having no luck in running.
Crawford and Marcus also teamed up with Trippi two-year-old filly Too Cute to win the third race, although that favourite had to work for victory getting up to shed her maiden by a head, with the filly having finished second last time out.
Her stable mate Super Silvano, a two-year-old own brother to the Crawford trained G1 winning sprinter Bold Respect, caught the eye when getting off the mark impressively at just the second time of asking, when winnning in open company on Monday. Second over 1000m on debut, the Ascot Stud bred two-year-old stayed on smartly to account for well bred first-timer Quintay by a length and a quarter on Monday and he looks a useful sort in the making.
The Crawford/Marcus combination went close to making it four wins on the day with two-year-old Finding Camelot going down by a long neck when second to older rival Spectraforce in Monday’s fifth race –the TAB Telebet 0861 000 822 MR 72 Divided Handicap.
Regally bred two-year-old Lilac Sensation (a Dynasty half-sister to multiple G1 winner Snowdance and very closely related to the Dynasty sired champion Bela-Bela) made a pleasing debut on Monday when the Snaith trained juvenile ran on smartly for third behind Too Cute and she should go close next time out.
Favourite backers had a great day on Monday, with tote favourites winning no fewer than six of the eight races on the day.
