Dark Brown Sugars win nicely topped off a good 24hrs for the Singleton stables after Platinum Jack won at Mooney Valley the night before. Penny (Dark Brown Sugar) had been scratched several times in the last couple of weeks due bad barriers and wet tracks but the decisions not to run her on those occasions paid off in the end.

The first interstate win for the stable occurred when Platinum Jack travelled down to Mooney Valley to race in the 3000m SPORTING BET HANDICAP on Friday night (8th February). Ridden by Kerrin McEvoy with 55kg on his back, Platinum Jack looked the winner the whole race. He sat last one off the fence rounding the home turn, took the lead and won by 2 lengths.
One of the main reasons for travelling that distance, apart from the length of the race which suited the horses staying ability, was that Scott wanted to give him a run the Victorian way round. Jack (Platinum Jack) has a bad habit of hanging in when racing clockwise as they do in Sydney.

Kendrick Racing is relocating headquarters to Sunshine Coast. KENDRICK Racing is making an exciting move to the Sunshine Coast."I think the timing is right to relocate south,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick. "We've won the last five premierships in Mackay, we have excellent owners and the quality of horses in the stable has never been better,''
"The fact Mackay is set to lose race meetings next season, which would have forced us to travel even more, also helped make the final decision."
