Doubts dominate Sydney 2YO feature fields

If anyone had to pick which stallion would have the most runners in Sydney’s first 2YO stakes races of the season, Arrowfield’s Not A Single Doubt would be at short odds.

After all, he was a precocious pre-Christmas 2YO stakeswinner himself and his career total of 17 stakeswinners already includes seven successful as juveniles.

And sure enough, he has four acceptors tomorrow: the colts Arcadian, Lord Beckworth and Sure And Fast in the NSW Breeders’ Plate LR, and the filly Undoubted Pleasure, third emergency in the Gimcrack S. LR.

They are from the sixth and last crop conceived on Not A Single Doubt’s original $12,500 + GST fee, and were all sold as yearlings, with Lord Beckworth the most expensive at $160,000. He was purchased by Paul Perry from the Bell River Thoroughbreds draft at the Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale.

All four trialled at Randwick on 23 September, with Sure And Fast and Lord Beckworth doing best as the placegetters behind Alkadabra who also runs in the Breeders’ Plate.

However, tomorrow’s most interesting 2YO runner for Not A Single Doubt may be in Melbourne, where the colt Risen From Doubt lines up for the Tony McEvoy stable in the VRC Maribyrnong Trial S. LR.

A $140,000 buy for Hancock Quality Bloodstock from Tyreel Stud’s draft at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, Risen From Doubt brings the experience of two South Australian trial wins to Flemington. It surely doesn’t hurt that he’s also a member of the great Denise’s Joy family.

Not A Single Doubt stands at Arrowfield this season at a fee of $33,000 inc. GST.
