The QBRED stars shone brightly last night.
In an historic night at Albion Park, all 10 races were designated for QBRED pacers only and featured several finals including many exciting young prospects.
It’s a great opportunity to showcase the local breeding scene.
And the racing was fast and exciting.
Both Gr.2 $50,540 QBRED Triad 3yo Finals went the way of Kevin and Kay Seymour and the their trainer/drivers Grant and Trista Dixon after Aqua Miss and Colt Thirty One proved triumphant in their respective features.
In the fillies final, Aqua Miss scored an all the way victory and led home a Seymour/Dixon trifecta with Red Charmer and Fame Assured filling the minor placings in the 2138m final.
The Bettors Delight – Aqua Blue Girl filly rated 1:57.7 while sprinting home in a scorching 27.2 seconds.
It was her 6th win from just 11 starts.
All three fillies will be aimed at the upcoming Oaks features in the coming weeks across the winter carnival.
In the Colts and Geldings final, Colt Thirty One scored an expected and dominant victory after racing without cover throughout the 2138m feature defeating Pinup Boy and Corey William.
Unbeaten at Albion Park, the Mach Three – Charm Personified colt rated 1:56.0 while covering his final 800m in 57.1 seconds.

Both Aqua Miss and Colt Thirty One were born and raised at Egmont Park Stud on the Darling Downs, Toowoomba.
