Swettenham Stud sire Dash For Cash (Secret Savings – Gulistan, by Rubiton) continued his perfect start to the season when Rhiannon’s Joy (Dash For Cash – Composure, by Flying Spur) won at Bendigo on Thursday.
Rhiannon’s Joy completed a win for Dash For Cash on all four days of the new season. The 2002 Group 1 Australian Guineas winner is the only stallion to achieve the feat in 2011/12.
Dash For Cash has produced three of his season’s winners in Victoria. The sire’s other winner was at Balaklava in South Australia.
Meanwhile, former Arrowfield Stud shuttle sire Falbrav (Fairy King – Gift Of The Night, by Slewpy) was among the winners with a double on Thursday.
The Mark Kavanagh-trained Faltastic (Falbrav – Amanusa, by Alzao) started Falbrav’s winning day with his success in the Hindsight Club Raceday Maiden Plate (1400m) at Bendigo.
Faltastic is a four-year-old three-quarter brother to the Group 2 winner, now successful sire, Delzao (Encosta De Lago – Amanusa, by Alzao). Both Faltastic and Delzao were bred on the Fairy King / Alzao cross.
A son of Falbrav also took out the biggest purse on offer on Thursday when Brave The Way (Falbrav – La Belle Diamante, by Zabeel) claimed the $70,000 Coffs Harbour Cup (1600m) for the Alan Bailey stable.
