Goulburn Trainers Deliver Results Right On 'Q'

With their home track heat of the Country Championships fast approaching (Saturday 2 March), Goulburn trainers have delivered a timely reminder of the quality of galloper they can produce from the tablelands training base.

In the space of just three days last week, Goulburn trainers delivered quinella results in separate races on separate days at separate tracks.

The Emma & Lucy Longmire Twinstar training partnership delivered a one-two punch at Wagga last Thursday, producing the quinella in Race 5. In the process the stable looks to have unearthed some sharp looking new talent with the winner Feel The Knight and runner-up Designer Dance both being on debut.

Only two days later at Newcastle, the Goulburn-based but 'very un-twin like' John Bateman and Tash Burleigh gave it a groundhog day feel with Nicconita (Bateman) just edging a brave Al Mah Haha (Burleigh) in a thrilling quinella result to Race 9.

Amongst all the ‘Q’s was another Goulburn trainer Kurt Goldman quietly concentrating on racking up ‘W’s, delivering two city winners in the same week.

After Safe Landing scored at Warwick Farm on Wednesday, Goldman then followed that up by producing super consistent mare Eckstein to win the Southern Cross Stakes at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Goulburn Race Club CEO, Robyn Fife, is thrilled to see local trainers delivering such results.

“The results shine the spotlight on what be possible for the ‘home team’ come SERA Country Championships Qualifier Day on their home track,” Ms Fife said.

“There are a number of local stables keeping the dream alive of qualifying for the $500 000 Country Championships Final at Royal Randwick on April 6th.”
