No doubts about Doubtfilly & Knot Out

Leading young Arrowfield sire Not A Single Doubt boosted his already healthy season prizemoney by more than $200,000 today, thanks to impressive wins by his 2YO daughter Doubtfilly on the Gold Coast and 4YO son Knot Out in Sydney.

Doubtfilly (ex Aussie Enchantee by Alhaarth) took a 3-from-five record into today’s 1200-metre GCTC QTIS 600 2YO Plate and came out of it with a 5.3 length victory and $160,450 in prizemoney. That took the earnings from her four-month career beyond $300,000 – a marvellous return on her $17,500 yearling sale price.

Doubtfilly is trained in Queensland by part-owner Stuart Kendrick who has indicated that the QTC Sires’ Produce S. G2 on 2 June is a likely Winter Carnival target for her.

Not A Single Doubt (8th) now joins Snitzel (3rd) and their champion sire Redoute’s Choice (4th) to fill three of the top eight positions on the 2YO Sires’ table, with a fourth Arrowfield resident, Charge Forward in 11th position. Together this quartet has been represented this season by 16 2YO winners of more than $2.3 million.

Number 8 in the eighth race is sometimes considered “an omen bet” and so it proved at Randwick when Knot Out (ex It’s Not On by Tierce) produced a strong run wide out on the track to score the most valuable of his four wins.

Trained by Paul Messara for Dr Geoff Chapman and a group of trans-Tasman friends. Knot Out suffered a pelvic injury last year and returned to racing last month to run eighth at Rosehill, then third at Cantebrury.
