Heart starter for Group 1 Saturday

Champion Queensland sire Show A Heart sired a winning treble at Doomben on Wednesday ahead of a potential Group 1 pay-day at Caulfield this weekend.

Show A Heart has Woorim and Toorak Toff engaged in the G1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes on Saturday and he got the ball rolling back home in Brisbane yesterday.

Patinack homebred Strip Show was first cab off the rank in Race 1 when he careered away to a very impressive victory second-up from a spell.  

The Rob Heathcote trained Bribie bounded away to record an effortless victory in Race 3.  He is a younger brother to Woorim and the stable believes he has the raw ability to compete at the highest level.    

Princess Lyca nailed the last-leg of the Show A Heart treble when she knuckled down to hold off all challengers over 1650m in Race 6.  The Gold Coast based mare has been a model of consistency having won or placed in 7 of her 15 starts.

Woorim has been installed a $4.50 second favourite for the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes behind brilliant colt Smart Missile.  Group 1 Golden Rose winner Toorak Toff is at $17 in pre-post markets.
