It takes a pretty special stallion to compile consecutive seasons of high performance – for example, top 10 Premiership finishes and double-figure stakeswinners.
By those measures, Not A Single Doubt, who began his career at a $12,500 fee, is on a roll that now spans four seasons and his record & reputation continue to strengthen.
In our miRunners stable, we are lucky to have two horses by this great sire, one with units still available! Our Not A Single Doubt x Countess Dehere filly, recently named Bellarine Beauty trained by Troy Corstens, has already shown precocity like her super sire, and is having some time maturing in the paddock before coming back to work. Watch her impressive trial below:
Not A Single Doubt had his 65th stakeswinner with 2YO colt Stronger, who won a hard-fought battle with the favourite Accession in Saturday’s $140,000 GCTC Ken Russell Memorial Classic 1200m G3. View the race replay below:
Sent to Peter & Paul Snowden, he won on debut at Kembla Grange last November, placed at Rosehill, won at Randwick in March, then finished third in Cosmic Force’s Pago Pago S. G3 & fourth in Bivouac’s Kindergarten S. G3 on 6 April before heading to Queensland.
Stronger’s maiden stakes victory kicked off a hectic half-hour for Not A Single Doubt. First, his Tony McEvoy-trained 2YO daughter Balaabel finished second on debut in the SAJC Queen Adelaide S. LR, then 3YO filly Fidelia won well at Flemington, her third success in 7 starts for trainer Robbie Griffiths.
By day’s end, Not A Single Doubt’s 2018/19 prizemoney had increased by more than $320,000 to $9.1 million, putting him on course for his fourth consecutive $10 million-plus Australian season.
