THE dream continues for young trainer David Pfieffer, who is now daring to think of a Stradbroke start for his flying filly Graceful Anna (pictured) after she took out yesterdays Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) on the Gold Coast. Graceful Anna part-owned in Darwin and a $38,000 Magic Millions purchase took her earnings beyond the $900,000 mark when holding off the late challenge of Darleys Kanzan in the 1200m event. The daughter of 1990 Golden Slipper winner Canny Lad has now won six of her eight starts and will run next at Doomben on May 22, with three 1350m races open as options for Pfieffer, who described the win as sensational. Its a nice dream I hope I dont wake up, Pfieffer said. He gave her a great ride, she t r a v e l l e d beautifully and coming to the turn it just o p e n e d u p for her. This was a good test for her (against older mares). There were some good handy mares in there. When you take on the three-year-olds youre in the same class, but to take on the older horses is always a tough kettle of fish. Pfieffer said the main aim for Graceful Anna is the Group 1 Winter Stakes on June 26, but the $1 million Stradbroke Handicap a fortnight earlier is also on the radar. If she wins next start, then it will be hard to pass up, because three-year-old fillies have a good record in it he said. Happy As presents a gift formothers HAPPY As provided trainer Frank Scott with yet another feature victory when he secured Friday nights Mothers Day Gift (312m) at Winnellie Park. The red-hot favourite justified his $1.80 price with a dashing display to beat a plucky Not Tomorrow, with Little Adele doing enough to finish third. It was also a milestone evening for Happy As, who sealed the 20th win of a storied 46-start career that also includes 10 minor placings. The $500 first-prize cheque takes the son of Typhoon Tides career earnings to $7990. His win capped an actionpacked three races for the veteran trainer, who prepared the nights opening winner So Happy before seeing star performer Uno Zephyr beaten in a boilover. So Happy broke her maiden status in the Murray Oakley Discount Electrical Dash (312m) when she proved too slick for Burglars Touch and Berrimah Lion. Uno Zephyr, sent out as a $1.70 favourite had to play second fiddle to Spirited Lady after that greyhound produced a classy performance in the Ashley McKeons Last Sprint (537m). Ron Phillips ended the night in strong fashion, taking out the last two races through Magic India and Wheres Cairo, while other winners were Aint No Whippet for trainer Sandra Bibby and the Rob Brennantrained Money Frog. GREGOR MACTAGGART CLASSY EFFORT: Metal Bender takes out the Hollindale Stakes yesterday Waller transfers his Sydney form TRAINER Chris Waller brought his Sydney autumn carnival form to Queensland yesterday but the spring looms as an even bigger stage following Metal Benders win in the Group Two Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast. Metal Bender caused an upset when he toppled Group One Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner Road To Rock by 114 lengths in the 1800m feature. The Gai Waterhouse-trained Gold Water filled the minor placing a further short head away. Waller was concerned at the start of the week when the Gold Coast track was rated heavy but his confidence soared following a track upgrade to slow. Hes a very good horse and Hughie Bowman rode him well, Waller said. Im very fortunate to be able to train him and hell run in the Doomben Cup next. Its very good prizemoney here in the winter but after the Doomben Cup hell have a break and well look at the big spring races in Melbourne. Waller was always confident the son of Danasinga would improve in Queensland despite failing at his previous two starts in the Group One TJ Smith (1200m) and Group One All-Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick. Those races were too short for him and he was always looking for longer, he said. Bowman will stay with Metal Bender in the Group One Doomben Cup (2020m) in a fortnight after replacing suspended rider Damien Oliver.
