Mar 16, 2013
Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas notched up another graded race win today, when Will Take Charge saluted in the G2 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn.
Wearing the Triabit, Will Take Charge had more kick from the home turn, dispatching the more fancied Oxbow (also trained by D. Wayne Lukas) to cause an upset victory (returning $58 for the win). The win puts Will Take Charge at the top of the points table for qualification in the Kentucky Derby, held in the first week of May. The $360,000 first prize takes the three year old's winning past $500,000.
Norsqui wins G2 Adelaide Cup
Mar 11, 2013
Wearing the Triabit, the Walter McShane trained Norsqui today won the G2 Adelaide Cup, starting at 25/1 and not really fancied by punters.
Jockey Chris Symons attributed the win to the horse being more settled, a trait of many Triabit-wearing horses. Norsqui just had too much left in the tank for his rivals at the end of the gruelling 2 mile race.

Mar 09, 2013
Shamexpress today won the G1 Newmarket at Flemington, wearing the Triabit. Starting at 14/1, Shamexpress produced a big finish to beat his more fancied rivals.
Trained by Danny O'Brien and ridden by Craig Newitt, Shamexpress had to produce a withering burst at the end to claim the heavily backed Moment of Change (5/4 favourite) right on the line, notching up yet another G1 Triabit win in the process.
Ferlax wins G1 Australian Guineas
Mar 02, 2013
Ferlax, trained by Jim Conlan and ridden by Stephen Baster, continued his perfect race record with a wonderful win in the $500,000 G1 Australian Guineas at Flemington.
Baster positioned the Pentire colt on the speed after jumping well from a middle barrier. With a little over a furlong to go, he asked Ferlax for an effort and he put a gap on the rest of the field, holding to win by half a length.
This win notches up yet another impressive G1 win for Triabit-wearing horses.
