Tiyatrolani to chase big bonus
Brilliant filly Tiyatrolani will take the first step to a $750,000 pay day when she returns to racing at Doomben.
Tiyatrolani heads a strong team trainer Tony Gollan will take to Doomben when she tackles Saturday’s QTIS Three-Year-Old Hcp (1110m).
The filly is rated among Queensland’s best young horses having won her first start at Ipswich by 7-1/2 lengths before scoring at Doomben by 4-1/2 lengths leaving Magic Millions Classic placegetter Candika in her wake.
Tiyatrolani then finished fifth when favourite in the Group Two Champagne Classic at Doomben after over-racing in the lead.
Gollan immediately spelled the daughter of sire Captain Sonador with the Brisbane summer in mind.
“She is a nice filly and has come back well after a break. The summer three-year-old triple crown is obviously one way to go,” Gollan said.
“All races are at set weights and in two of the legs she will be getting weight from the colts and geldings. I have no doubt she will get as far as 1400 metres so the 1300 of the final leg will be no problems.”
Tiyatrolani is one of several top horses in Golland’s stable raced by Eureka Stud and they combined to win with Notonyourlife at Eagle Farm last Saturday.
They have also tasted Group One success together with the “Boom Brothers”, Temple of Boom and Spirit of Boom.
“We have had plenty of success with Scott and Grana McAlpine from Eureka and I would be surprised if Tiyatrolani didn’t continue the trend,” Gollan said.
He also trained Tiyatrolani’s dam Tiyarto and although the mare could get stirred up on race day she had plenty of ability.
The Brisbane Race Club has rearranged its summer carnival to fit in with the three-year-old series which carries a $500,000 bonus, underwritten by UBET, for any horse winning all three legs.
The first leg, the Mode Plate (1200m), will be run at Doomben on December 3 with the next leg, the Gold Edition Stakes (1200m) is also at Doomben on December 17.
The final leg is the Vo Rogue Plate (1300m) which will switch from Doomben to Eagle Farm on December 31.
The winner of all three would collect just under $750,000 in prize money and bonus payments.
Another option for Gollan would be to try to get a wild card entry into the $1 million fillies and mares race on Magic Millions day via the Nudgee Handicap on December 31.
