Another Sensational Saturday for Sequalo

Barely a Saturday goes by without a great performance by evergreen stallion Sequalo and last Saturday was another great day for him with four winners highlighted by the metropolitan success of The Storeman.

Recording his third victory this preparation, the Tony Gollan trained four-year-old was always travelling well for Maija Vance - hitting the lead at the 200m and holding off all challenges.

A tough and consistent galloper who has won five of his 14 starts, The Storeman was bred by the Koala Dreaming Syndicate and sold at the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Horses In Training Sale for $31,000.

Already the winner of over $126,000 with more to come, The Storeman is the first live foal produced by the winning Lion Hunter mare Girlzone, a full sister to the dual stakes winner La Chasseuse.

What great form Sequalo gelding Sorisam has been in of late, the durable Ricky Maund trained seven-year-old winning four of his last six starts with his latest success coming at Bairnsdale on Saturday.

Always travelling well in the lead for Dean Holland, the bay really let down nicely over the final stages - his 1 1/4 length victory a soft one.

Bred by Bill Duncan Bloodstock and purchased by Lauriston Thoroughbred Farm for $70,000 at the 2008 Magic Millions, Sorisam has won eight of his 34 starts and seems to be racing at career best form at the age of seven.

The result of a one-off visit to Sequalo, Sorisam is out of the city winning Zeditave mare Wham Bam and he is her only winner from six foals.

Also racing in fine form is Mr Thatcher whose 3 1/2 length victory at Warwick on Saturday was his third success from his last five starts.

Overall a winner of six of 21, the Tom Dougall trained five-year-old is raced by his breeders who sadly lost his dam, the 12 times winner Watagan Lass a few years ago.

Also the dam of the two times Listed winner Miss Watagan, she was in foal to Hidden Dragon when she died.

The Inverell meeting saw Sequalo's fourth winner - Rioqualo winning his second in a row having also been successful at his previous outing at Goondiwindi.

A 1 3/4 length winner on that occasion, the Luke Berger trained seven-year-old won even more easily this time - his margin a soft 2 1/2 lengths.

A metropolitan winner of seven races, Rioqualo is the first of only three foals produced by the winning Cicerao mare Lady Cicerao who sadly died young.

Another five of Sequalo's progeny were in the placings on Saturday - always consistent!
