Stable Quinella at Bendigo

It was straight to the front for Bishops Castle at Bendigo on Sunday - and there he stayed, the promising three-year-old recording a strong all-the-way victory over stable mate Walloon Region over 1600m.

Appreciating a step up in distance, the son of O'Reilly was deserving of the win not always having had the best of luck in his lead-up runs.

A two times winner from just ten starts, Bishops Castle is raced by R & C Legh Racing Pty Ltd, Gurners Bloodstock Co (manager Andrew Ramsden), Dr John Kennedy, Roberto Scheriani, Harold Hansen, Wright Racing, Neville Scurrell, Warwick Poll and the SHH Syndicate.

A $NZ160,000 Karaka purcha for Paul Moroney, he is a son of the unraced Zabeel mare Hooked Ona Feeling – a cleverly named daughter of the high class race mare Ugachaka.

A dual Gr.2 winner of the Edward Manifold Stakes and the Queen Of The Turf Stakes, Ugachaka has produced the metropolitan winners Barbarino and High On Believing and she is a half sister o the Gr.3 winner Country Rose.

Ugachaka's dam is the Gr.3 placed Three Legs mare Bolshoi Star – half sister to the Hong Kong Derby placegetter Our Pal and to the successful broodmare Sweet Vienna, dam of the Singapore Derby winner Bocelli and the dual Group winner High Cee. Other stakes winners from this family include Alberto, Lord Majestic and Graphic Dance.

The run of runner-up Walloon Region was also a good one - the in-form galloper forced wide at the turn. He had been impressive winning his two previous races and is a horse well regarded by the stable.
