Another Dollar cashes in on change of tactics
A plan to use new tactics on the Waikato Stud graduate Another Dollar proved a winning move at Doomben on Saturday.
None of her rivals were noted front-runners so the decision was made to go to the lead on the daughter of Ocean Park.
Trainer Chris Waller’s Queensland manager Paul Shailer instructed jockey Ryan Maloney to make the running on the mare.
“She might not have ever won at Doomben, but she had placed in all five starts here including in the Queensland Oaks when second to a pretty smart horse in Youngstar,” Shailer said.
“In other words, in a genuinely run race, she was always going to be hard to beat. She was the class in the race and it showed through.”
It was only the third win for Another Dollar who has been stakes placed on another four occasions.
“There isn’t a lot for her up here and I am not sure what Chris has in mind for her,” Shailer said.
Another Dollar is raced by some of Waller’s biggest owners including Frank and Christine Cook, Peter Tighe and Noel Greenhalgh.
Maloney said Another Dollar had always been travelling strongly and she would appreciate even further at her next start.
Another Dollar is a daughter of the Pins mare Make a Wish, also the dam of the $1.4 million Savabeel colt at Karaka earlier this year.
In a notable result for Waikato Stud, stablemate Savacool chased home Another Dollar.
She was sold by the Matamata farm at Karaka to Waller for $220,000 and is out of Chilled Out.
The dam is a half-sister to the stakes winner The Big Chill and to the mother of the dual Group Two winner Coldplay.
