Impressive Strategic colt Tudor with Jake Bayliss aboard claimed an easy win at Bendigo today.  This is Jake’s second city winner after claiming his first city win aboard our Tycoon Rob a week ago.  Jake is riding well for the stable!

Thank you to Jake for riding another winner for us and congratulations to Lauriston Racing owners for the win.


Doug Harrison will take Tudor, a strong all-the-way winner of the Schweppes Handicap today at Bendigo to listed level at his next start.

Harrison said Tudor, with sound credentials behind the unbeaten Royal Snitzel and Inkling, would run in the Mitchell McKenzie Stakes at Moonee Valley on August 23.

He described this son of Strategic as a “very classy horse” who had been looking for better ground.

“He has always shown a lot of ability – he ran second to Eloping here (Bendigo) at his first start,” Harrison said.

“We just haven’t had much luck with wet tracks. We took him to Sydney in search of a dry track and it rained Friday night and Saturday morning.”

Harrison has entered Tudor in the Caulfield Guineas as well as the Caulfield Classic (2000m) as he believes the colt has the scope to stretch out beyond the short course trips.

Apprentice Jake Bayliss had no problem with keeping Tudor close to the rails although the first two winners on the day came out in the middle of the track.

Tudor, backed from $7 to $5.50, held off the fast finishing Fast Cash with, $4.80, with Stratum Star, the $2.80 favourite, third.
