TURF TOPICS: Toowoomba trained galloper, Onemore Twist, had to survive a protest before being awarded the Burrandowan Cup last Saturday.

In a very keenly contested finish to the 1740m BM 60, $10,000 Cup, Onemore Twist was the first past the post by a short half head for jockey Pietro Romeo and trainer Norm Larkin.

Apprentice Lachlan Dodds, rider of the runner-up First Regret lodged a protest against the winner after viewing the video of the finish alleging interference over the final stages.

Stewards found that, although Onemore Twist had shifted out in the final 20m there had been no contact with First Regret, who had shifted in, and

that the incident was too close to the finish to affect the result.

Stewards thus dismissed the protest.

By Onemorenomore from a Danehill Dancer mare, the Cup winner had won a 1625m maiden in Toowoomba when trained by Mark Callaghan and was coming off recent placings at Nanango and Warwick over 1600m and 1500m.

Burrandowan

THE result of the 1050m Patrons Cup at Burrandowan showed that prices paid for yearlings are not always an indicator of big city race success.

The three place-getters in this race had attracted bids totalling $280,000 as yearlings.

The winner, Charge Missile, a six-year-old by Charge Forward was sold for $200,000 at the 2012 Sydney Easter sale to trainer Tim Martin.

He won a Canterbury Maiden and BM68 with Charge Missile before the horse went to trainer Gerald Ryan and subsequently Jo Pride.

Clients of Gatton trainer Brenton Andrew then acquired Charge Missile who has now won nine races for them.

Last November, Charge Missile took out the Kumbia and Mt Perry Cups.

Jockey Billie-Rose Derbyshire rode Charge Missile to a ¾ length win at Burrandowan taking his race track earnings to just over $160,000 from his 11 wins and 11 placings from 41 starts.

Patrons Cup

SECOND in the Patrons Cup was the Nanango-trained galloper Klammer, a Snitzel six-year-old who was a $100,000 yearling at the Sydney Easter sale purchased by Gerald Ryan.

Third went to Monte Lago (7g by Encosta de Lago out of a Danehill mare) who was passed in for $85,000 at the 2012 Magic Millions yearling sale.

Toowoomba mentor

DOWNS trainers again dominated the winners' stall at Burrandowan. Toooomba mentor Tom Dougall won the Class B with Drumbeats three-year-old, Sir Bam (P. Hamblin) who defeated Oakey galloper Anexpense and In Taiwan.

Graham Banks, who trains at Oakey, saddled up Court Rules (L. McCoy) to land the 1175m maiden from Drummle and Stratton Oakmont.

Jockey, Leanne McCoy then completed a double winning the 1175m BM 60 on Publishing four-year-old Pick of the Pubs, who is trained by her partner David Reynolds at Dalby.

Pick of the Pubs beat home the Toowoomba-trained duo Heza Chumley and Output.

Heavyweight jockey Paul Hamblin, who usually rides over the jumps in Victoria, made the trip from down south to ride at Burrandowan winning the first race on Sir Bam who carried 60kg.

Jandowae

TOMORROW is the running of the Jandowae Cup, a $7000 BM 65 over 1500m.

Last start Dalby winner Flying Charger trained at Nanango by Glen Richardson heads the weights with 65kg in the Jandowae Cup which also includes Onemore Twist.

Nanango races on May 27 before Kilcoy on June 3.

Racing returns to Gympie on June 24 with the running of the $10 000 RSL Cup.
