High FIVE for Sequalo

Sequalo has enjoyed a wonderful season with his juveniles and his tough son Agitate was again in winning form at Doomben on Saturday.

Leading throughout to claim the Breakfast Creek Hotel Handicap, the Kelly Schweida trained colt recoded his third success from seven starts - and he was able to succeed despite not all going to plan.

"I came out with a set plan to snag him at the start and ride him from behind," said jockey Glen Colless, "and when he jumped three-quarters of a length in front I was a bit worried."

"I put the anchors on straight away but he wanted to over-race in the middle stages and when he dragged me round the turn I just let him run."

A horse with great natural speed, Agitate was part of a great day for Sequalo whose progeny won five races around Queensland.

Like that horse, Pretty Pollyanna is out of a mare by former Lyndhurst star Celestial Dancer and she too won yesterday - breaking her maiden by 1 1/2 lengths at Bundaberg.

At the Charters Towners meeting Sequalo was represented by another new winner, Zozuqalo winning her maiden by a 1 1/4 lengths whilst Timmy's Turn recorded an even easier victory at Ilfracombe - racing away by 5 1/4 lengths; recording his second win from just four starts.

Hidden Dragon also enjoyed a good day with four winners - two-year-old Dragon Sign proving 1 1/2 lengths too good for his rivals at Cairns, Quizette recording her fifth career victory at the Gold Coast, Stiltskin breaking his maiden at Ilfracombe and Star Dragon his at the Sunshine Coast.
