No doubts about Squamosa in racetrack return

The return of Not A Single Doubt ‘s Arrowfield-bred-and-sold son Squamosa has been awaited ever since his first campaign last year, which culminated in a Group 3 win, and a close second in the STC Golden Rose S. G1.

Today, the 3YO colt made the wait worthwhile – and completed a Sydney treble for Arrowfield stallions – with a blazing 4.75 length win in the $100,000 ATC June S. 1100m LR. Sent straight to the front by jockey Jim Cassidy, Squamosa quickly had his opponents under pressure and romped home in a time of 1.05.59.

Squamosa is trained by Gai Waterhouse for owners Jeremy Tan, Gillian Tan & Grace Wong. Purchased for $140,000 by Star Thoroughbreds from the Arrowfield draft at the 2009 Magic Millions Gold Coast yearling sale, Squamosa has now won four of his five starts and more than $430,000.

Since she foaled Squamosa in 2007, his dam Class Success has had two fillies, 2YO Accomplishment (by Flying Spur ) in training with Paul Messara, and a current weanling by Snitzel .

Squamosa is one of four stakeswinners this season for Not A Single Doubt, who is third on the Australian 3rd Season Sires’ list and second on the 2YO Sires’ table. Not A Single Doubt will stand the 2011 season at a fee of $24,750 inc. GST.
