Trainer Stuart Kendrick is hopeful promising chestnut filly Bulloo can continue the stable’s winning momentum at Doomben on Wednesday afternoon.
The experienced Kendrick was in red hot form on his home track of the Sunshine Coast on Sunday, training three winners and as many placings from seven starters.
The champion Caloundra trainer has four runners entered for Doomben on Wednesday including Bulloo, who will be ridden by gun hoop Ryan Maloney, and Vetta Velocita, who clash in the Three-Year-Old Benchmark 65 Handicap over 1350 metres.
Kendrick has a slight leaning to Bulloo, who is a well-bred daughter of Written Tycoon out of the unraced Sebring mare Splendid Eagle, as well as being a half-sister to 2016 Queensland Derby winner Eagle Way.
Bulloo has started five times for two wins and as many placings and is coming off a last start third to the in-form Startantes over 1350 metres at Doomben on September 11.
“On their last runs I have to favour Bulloo,” Kendrick said.
“She’s a well-bred filly but she’ll only have one or more two runs before she spells to get ready for the winter carnival next year.
“She’s a big striding filly who might head towards the Queensland Oaks and any Stakes win would greatly improve her value as a broodmare.”
