The big goodbye says here i am

Every Rogues owner was on the edge of their seat when The Big Goodbye debuted at Eagle Farm and nearly stole the show on debut. What a thrill!

QLD ROGUES HORSES

When you purchase a unit in the QLD Rogues you own your share of a six horse racing team. You own a share of all the horses listed below!

Your team continues to grow each year until you have a ten horse racing team with the leading trainers across the state. You will race against the best from around Australia, the VIC Husslers and the NSW Tycoons. You will be living, loving and owning a team of premium racehorses!

Hot Spring Gold

Hot Spring Gold is a 4yo lightly raced gelding, by superstar sire Written Tycoon out of the 5-time winning mare Graphic. He has been an ultra-consistent racehorse for his owner having 18 starts to date for 3 wins and 5 minor placings with earnings excess of $160,000.

He found a rich vein of form last preparation winning 3 of his 9 starts with 2 minor placings before going for a well-earned break. It was however his sectionals and racing style that set off alerts for TRL’s analysts.

The Big Goodbye

The Big Goodbye is the first ready to race horse for Queensland and is being trained by Robert Heathcote. The Big Goodbye he has had 10 starts for 3 wins and 6 placings in his racing career so far, winning just over $94,000 to date. He was on our ready to run list because he has been showing improving sprinting sectionals, something the Form Team have been watching closely. The Big Goodbye is sired by Host, the Sire of a well known sprinter currently wowing crowds, Eduardo. With 2 wins already to his name in South Australia, the Rogues are excited to have this guy on their team!

I Am Invincible x Unequivocal

I Am Invincible was an exceptional sprinter, having five wins at 1000 & 1100 metres and winning $270,050 in prizemoney. These included the Group III SAJC DC McKay Stakes, Listed MRC Sir John Monash Stakes and second to Takeover Target in the Group I SAJC Goodwood Handicap.

There is no denying that I Am Invincible is most notable for his success as a stallion, having sired more than 60 individual stakes winners. His progeny include the likes of Viddora, Loving Gaby, Brazen Beau and Voodoo Lad, all winners of numerous Gr. 1 races. He stands for a whopping service fee of $209,000, the most expensive stallion in Australia. The QLD Rogues will have a lot of fun with this impressively bred filly.

Flying Artie x Laylia

By sire Flying Artie – Australia’s highest rated 3YO sprinter in 2016/17. An Exceptional Juvenile, Flying Artie won the G3 Blue Diamond Prelude defeating Star Turn, ran a tremendous Blue Diamond running 2nd to Extreme Choice, and ran 3rd in the G1 Golden Slipper. He won the Group 1 Stallion-Making Coolmore Stakes defeating the likes of Extreme Choice, Astern, Star Turn, and Russian Revolution.

He is the sire of Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes Winner Artorius, and is already the sire of 5 Australian Fire Crop Winners to Date.

Helluva Barty (Hellbent x Queen Of Kandy)

Sire Hellbent had four starts in Gr1’s never worse than fourth, and his form was impeccable in every G1 he contested. He was a winner of 7 races and won more than $900,000 in prizemoney, including the 2018 G1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) in near record time; second in the 2017 G1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) and third in the G1 Oakleigh Plate to Russian Revolution.

In-bred 3×3 to Green Desert, Hellbent is I Am Invincible’s fourth G1 winner and 29th Stakes winner and is out of Volksraad mare Volkaspray who is from the family of 1963 Golden Slipper winner Pago Pago. We can’t wait to see what this colt can do on the track.

Greylander (Fastnet Rock x Alice Island)

Everyone has always wanted to own a superbly bred Grey. This beauty of a Colt was one of the most talked about Yearlings leading into the draft, and the QLD Rogues were thrilled to secure him on their team. His sire Fastnet Rock was a 2 x Gr.1, Gr.2 and Gr.3 winner as a 3YO, and has now sired over 40 individual Group 1 winners.

A legend both on and off the track, Fastnet Rock continues to impress all in the industry with the types he produces, and this grey looks a champion in the making.

OWNER REPORT OF THE WEEK

October 20, 2021

Helluva Barty is a little bit cheeky but all it’s all in good fun at this stage. He is going really well and is set to have his first light jump out next week at the Gold Coast. Following that it will likely be trial time and he will be the one to tell us just how far he goes this prep.

Here is some vision of him doing track work earlier in the week, he is on the outside.

QLD ROGUES TRAINERS

QLD Rogues trainers are ready to take on all “those trainers from down South”! Just because the Rogues live in the sunshine, doesn’t mean it’s beach time. Every one of the QLD Rogues trainers would love to show those southerners just what a tough bred QLD trainer can do.

Chris Anderson

Chris Anderson wasn’t born into the racing game but he has certainly made up for the lost time. A one time successful publican & executive in the liquor game, he cast that career aside to follow his passion.

Chris’s bold move to try his hand at training, again showed his tenacity, and dedication. His late entrance into the training industry, has given him the advantage of having no preconceived ideas, or outdated family habits to shake, allowing him to focus on developing more modern, and effective training techniques.

Chris Munce

There was hardly a major race Chris Munce didn’t win as a jockey. Boasting a long list of honours, Chris’ main achievements included an overall of 42 Group 1 wins culminating in the ‘Big Four’ – Melbourne Cup, Cox Plate, Golden Slipper and Caulfield Cup.

As a trainer, Chris is now developing his Eagle Farm based stable with quality youngsters and he has already tasted feature-race success with the likes of Boomsara ($2M Magic Millions 3YO Guineas Winner) and Ours To Keep (first Group winner), as well as having had three starters in the $2M Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

Michael Costa

Michael Costa Racing, based out of the Gold Coast, is fast becoming famous for its innovative training methods, dedication to horse welfare and its fresh and dynamic emphasis on the client experience.

Since Michael relocated the Michael Costa Racing stable from Sydney to the Gold Coast in 2016, he has established one of the leading stables in Queensland from only a boutique sized team of horses. In the 2019/2020 season, Michael Costa Racing was crowned in the top 5 winning strike rates in the country and we are on target to break our winning record for the next racing season.

Robert Heathcote

As a young man Rob travelled the world in the tourism industry, then he conquered the world with his all star sprinter Buffering beating the best in Dubai. There’s been the multiple Brisbane and Queensland training premierships, over a thousand winners, and the Group 1 glories.

Rob believes that owners are the most important people in racing, some he has had from the first year he started training, which is a true testament to his great communication and his very approachable personality that makes owners feel like part of the ‘racing family’.

Toby & Trent Edmonds

Toby Edmonds relocated from Warwick Farm to the Gold Coast not for the sun or the surf, but for an opportunity, setting up his own stable in 2011 and he has never looked back. There’s been Magic Millions success with Houtzen, and now the entire family are entrenched at the state of the art stable with an official training partnership between Toby and son Trent.

The stable consistently has winning strikeouts which are industry leading and in season 2018 Toby trained 106.5 winners at a strike rate of 21.7% which placed the stable in the top 3 Nationally in terms of winning strike rate. This cemented him as not only one of Queensland’s, but one of Australia’s leading thoroughbred trainers.

Tony Gollan

Champion trainer Tony Gollan was more than a promising rugby league player. He represented Queensland in the Under 19s and had aspirations of being a Brisbane Bronco. However it was his undying love of the horse that saw him take up horse training full time.

Tony Gollan has achieved the feat of winning the Metropolitan Queensland Trainers’ Premiership for 5 seasons in a row and currently holds the record of Metro wins breaking his own record in the 2017/18 season previously set in 2015/16. He has numerous Group 1 wins to his name and continues to dominate the ranks in QLD.

He has numerous Group 1 wins to his name and continues to dominate the ranks in QLD.

QLD ROGUES AMBASSADOR

As a former trackwork jockey for the Gai Waterhouse, Billy Slater is supremely qualified to lead (but not ride for) the Rogues and his beloved Queensland. He played a remarkable 31 State of Origins, won The Dally M, 2 premierships, captained his “Mighty Maroons” and, for good measure was also voted the best player in the world in 2008. Continuing his lifetime passion for the sport, Billy and his wife Nicole (who met at Pony Club) have now formed Slater Thoroughbreds.

QLD ROGUES MANAGER

Steve has been the manager of Queensland’s largest stud operation Glenlogan Park for the past 20 years. In doing so Steve has managed Glenlogan’s racing portfolio which has competed in and won some of Australia’s biggest races. Steve knows Queensland racing as well as anyone you can think of which gives The Rogues a massive leg up in their attempt to win TRL. Queenlander’s might also be pleased to hear that in terms of competitiveness, that winning desire within Steve burns like a Queensland scrub fire.
