Not A Single Doubt Can Do It All - Shout The Bar Claims the Vinery Stud Stakes
Mark Smith - Saturday March 28

A Group 1 win in the Golden Slipper over 1200 metres one week, a Group 1 winner in the Vinery Stud Stakes over 2000 metres the next, it seems nothing is beyond the retired Not A Single Doubt and trainers Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.No catching Shout The Bar in the Vinery Stud Stakes image Steve Hart

The Not A Single Doubt Farnan was a popular winner of the Golden Slipper but the Vinery was expected to be another match race between the old foes Funstar and Sababeel but Shout The Bar was about to spoil the party.

The lightly-raced daughter of Not A Single Doubt went off a $16 chance after winning her first two starts at Newcastle and Randwick before going down by the narrowest of margins in the Group III Kembla Grange Classic.

Sent straight to the front by Adam Hyeronimus, Shout The Bar came under a strong challenge in the straight but she kept up a relentless gallop to defeat Probabeel (Savabeel) by a neck with a length back to Nudge (Fastnet Rock) who edged Funstar (Adelaide) for third.

It was first winner at the highest level for both horse and rider.

“Not once at any stage did I think she is going to win,” Hyeronimus said.

“She is probably not actually a leader, I probably led by default. The whole race she had her ears pricked just floating along.

“Through the middle stages I was quite worried that I was going too slow and that is why I picked the tempo up through the half mile.

“I didn’t want it to turn into a sit and sprint because I know that she is tough and I knew that she would run a strong 2000m metres.

“From her second trial I said to Adrian this is our Oaks horse and she hasn’t let us down yet.”

Bott said he is amazed that the filly continues to improve throughout her first preparation.

“It’s been an amazing progression from her. She has shown us plenty of ability this campaign,” he said.

“Her class shone through over the shorter trips, we thought she was very vulnerable early days but she surprised us over those 1100m races, she was just doing it on sheer class and talent”

A $200,000 purchase by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott Racing, out of the Newhaven Park draft at the 2018 Gold Coast Magic Millions Sale, Shout The Bar has been promoted to second favourite for the Group 1 Australian Oaks at Randwick on April 11.

Bred by Mr RS Finemore and Planette Thoroughbred Trading and carrying the silks of Franbk and Christine Cook’s Mystery Downs, Shout The Bar is the only foal to race out of the winning O’Reilly mare Drinks All Round who was sold by Newhaven Park to Melbourne Bloodstock for $90,000 at the 2018 Inglis Chairmans Sale.

It is a timely win for Segenhoe Stud who will offer a full-sister to Shout The Bar at the Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale (lot 416) .

Drinks All Round’s dam Tattinger (Centaine) is a half-sister to multiple Group II winner and multiple Group 1 placed Satinka (Stravinsky) and to the stakes-placed She Wishes (Kenfair) the dam of the Group 1 ATC Doncaster Hcp and Group 1 George Ryder Stakes winner Ranirangdoo (Pentire).

Drinks All Round has a 2yo filly by Not A Single Doubt named She's A Survivor.

Following her Easter bound yearling, Drinks All Round was covered by Not A Single Doubt last spring.

Shout The Bar becomes the 70th stakes winner and 11th Group 1 winner for Arrowfield Stud’s pensioned Not A Single Doubt
