KENDRICK Racing trainer Stuart Kendrick has won his sixth premiership in seven years.
Kendrick has taken out the Sunshine Coast title for 2013/14 in his first full season based at the Caloundra track.
It followed five successive Mackay premierships from 2005/06 to 20011/12 before he relocated south early last year.
He won the Caloundra premiership for the season just completed with 26 wins at the track and an impressive strike rate of nearly 20%.
He also saddled up 19 runners-up and 19 third place-getters.
Kendrick also featured prominently on the Queensland provincial trainers' premiership, finishing seventh with 33 wins.
He also had 12 wins on metropolitan tracks.
"It was great to win another premiership in our first full season operating from here,'' said Kendrick.
"The move south has been a successful one and the results are a testament to our staff,'' he said.
"Looking forward, the next aim will be to increase our metropolitan winners while maintaining our good results at provincial tracks."
Kendrick capped the final Sunshine Coast Turf Club meeting 2013/14 with a fitting win by one of the stable's most consistent horses of the season, Tambo's Jewel, on July 27.
The four-year-old mare, ridden by Tim Bell, was ultra-impressive in winning an Open (1000m) after a freshen-up.
Having her first run since April, she rocketed home over the last 200m to grab her third Sunshine Coast win of the season.
The Dalan Tamblyn-owned and bred mare also won two other city races at Eagle Farm and Doomben during the season.
"The win was enormous,'' Kendrick said.
"She looks to have another good preparation ahead of her."
