It was very pleasing for our team and group of owners to have Mercante win his maiden at Ballarat.
It was outstanding to see Think I’m Famous return to the winners stall, the second of her career.
Subrising put in an outstanding performance at just her third start to fly home and score her first victory.
Tenace put it all together on the track on Tuesday at Sportsbet-Ballarat with a good win in the Polytrack Maiden over 1500m.
It was very pleasing to see Passione win her second city race since arriving at Blackiston Racing from New Zealand.

No matter the grade, it is always a good feeling to win two races back to back. That’s what Frost Yourself did at Ararat, rising into BM64 grade after her win in February at Bendigo.
At Bendigo on Sunday 12 February, Frost Yourself again showed a liking for the Bendigo track and scored a comfortable win in good style.
A few weeks ago we announced that we are moving to a new stable here at Ballarat. We are pleased to report that the relocation is complete.
Later this month, Blackiston Racing will relocate to a more modern stable facility within the Ballarat Training Complex. It will help us provide our clients and horses under our care the best possible attention and a manageable workload.
In line with many other high profile trainers, we have introduced the use of Arioneo’s Equimetre into our daily training routine. I hope all horses benefit from this addition to our training approach.
Ideal Miss continues to improve with age and experience. She now had added ‘versatility’ to her CV after winning over 2600m at Cranbourne on Friday. Her third win for the preparation and her career, and arguably her best.
