CONGRATULATIONS CIARON MAHER - Srikandi Wins G1 Stradbroke Handicap

Jun 10, 2015

Srikandi Wins Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap at Doomben in Queensland.Talented 4YO mare Srikandi scored by 1.8-lengths for trainer Ciaron Maher in the $2 million Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m). This was a well deserved maiden Gr1 victory for Srikandi who boosted her impressive record to 8 wins (including the Gr2 Victory Stakes, Gr3 Glenlogan Park Stakes & Listed Silk Stocking) and 2 placings (including the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap) from 12 starts for $1,847,600 earnings. "It was a great effort by the team to get her back up," Maher said. "It hasn't gone really smoothly this prep but they've done a lot of hard work." He added: "This mare has a big following and to win a Group One is extra good. She really deserves to be a Group One winner."

That brought up Ciaron's 2nd G1 win for the season, his 1st was our 3YO filly SET SQUARE who won the VRC Crown Oaks in November.

We are delighted to have Ciaron Maher looking after 14 of our racehorse team in Victoria and look forward to continued success with him and being involved in his exciting stable
