Tequila Time, Neva Doubt Us headline weekend action

Tequila Time continued his brilliant return to racing with a second successive win at Morphettville on Saturday.

It was his eighth win from 32 starts and took prizemoney past the half-million dollar mark (with bonuses). The win set up another good day at the office for Hall of Fame horseman and Leon Macdonald and co-trainer Andrew Gluyas.

The Macdonald/Gluyas stable took training honours with a double, after Midnight Storm nailed Heir Of Tavistock in the final stride in the last race on the program to continue their brilliant 2021-22 season. The pair now sit on top of the SA Metro Trainer’s Premiership with 15 wins and an impressive 25 per cent winning strike rate.

The Phillip Stokes-trained Arran Bay was a big winner in the opening race of the day with Gary Lo in the saddle, while the Michael Hickmott-trained Unlaced ran rivals ragged in the second heat of the Alcopop Series winning by 3.3 lengths.

At Clare on Sunday Grant Young claimed the $31,800 Clare Valley Cup feature with Never Doubt Us who upset a strong field with Sophie Logan in the saddle.

Sent out at $81 on the fixed odds market, Never Doubt Us was given a perfect run before getting the better of Robe Bay to score his first win in almost two years and giving a Logan a second Clare Cup in 2021 after winning the Cup run back in January with Connermara Rose.

Jess Eaton had a Clare a riding double, completing a successful return to the saddle from suspension with four winners from her first 10 rides back.
