McAuliffe stable form heads North
Tue, 14 Oct 14

It was another successful weekend for in-form trainer Darren McAuliffe, as he recorded another double at Geraldton on Sunday.

Queen Of Tease recorded a comfortable two-length victory in the Electrolux Maiden (1320m) for apprentice jockey Chloe Azzopardi.

Azzopardi then backed up in the final event of the day, the Sunbeam Handicap (1220m) aboard Celtic Rock who recorded a half-length victory, and ensured the trip up to Geraldton for the day was worth it.

It was only the second start for Queen Of Tease, who was beaten by six-lengths on debut on October 1 at Belmont Park, where she slightly missed the jump.

However, on that occasion Queen Of Tease was beaten by undefeated gelding Disposition and WA Sires Produce Stakes fourth placegetter Prete A Partir, in what looks to be a strong form reference for the three-year-old's as the Summer Carnival approaches.

The well-supported Holy Sky completed the second leg of a double for McAuliffe, as the four-year-old narrowly got the better of Our King’s Fortune in the Fujitsu Handicap (1320m).

Holy Sky trialled at Lark Hill last week, where he was only beaten by Pure Glamour and the Belgravia Stakes bound Fuld’s Bet.

Holy Sky just lost his position as the field turned for home, however, jockey Ben Kennedy wore down his rivals with a well-timed ride.
