Smart four-year four-year-old mare Sans Doute recorded her third victory in succession when successful in the Resimax Group Plate (1100m) at Flemington on Saturday.


The daughter of Not A Single Doubt was game after over-coming a checkered-passage in a small field of five to score going away.


Prepared by Mark Walker out of Te Akau Racing’s Cranbourne stable, the mare will be aimed at black-type to further enhance her residual value. She has now won her past three at Flemington.


“It’s really difficult to do, winning three in a row, especially at Flemington, but she’s shown to love the course and is continuing to establish a really good sprinting record,” Walker said.


“Ben (Gleeson) and the team are doing a very good job with her at our Cranbourne stable.


“When we sent her over we thought she would be ideal for those 1000 and 1100-metre races and there’s so many more opportunities in Victoria for those types of races than we have in New Zealand.


“It’s a benefit for our owners too, seeing all the different types of races that our horses are suitable for and obviously there’s fantastic stake money as well.


“I think she’s only going to keep getting better with age and we’re really looking forward to chasing some Australian black type with her, and add to her Group Three placing in New Zealand.”


Sans Doute placed in the Gr.3 Gold Trail Stakes (1200m) at three, and her victory on Saturday advanced her career record to six wins and five placings from 14 starts.


Sans Doute was purchased by David Ellis for $300,000 at the 2021 Australian Easter Yearling Sale, from the draft of Arrowfield Stud. – NZ Racing Desk
