BENDIGO trainer Shane Fliedner's association with a Macedon region-based stud is continuing to reap rewards.
Fliedner found himself in the winners' circle again on Tuesday after Her Command charged to victory in a 1300m maiden at Geelong.
The Wingrove park-bred mare was having her 20th start for Fliedner, breaking a run of near-misses which had resulted in eight minor placings and a string of fourths.
Her Command is a half-sister to Fliedner's dual Moonee Valley winner In Fairness, who is expected to race in Adelaide next week after finishing third over 1400m at Echuca on Monday.
The five-year-old gelding showed signs of promise with a pair of wins at the Valley over 1200m and 1600m late last year.
Meanwhile, Wingrove Park is continuing to bask in the success of rising star Royal Symphony.
The unbeaten run of the Domesday colt extended into black-type success at Flemington on Saturday, when the colt joined an honor roll of five stakes winners bred by the Kerrie-based stud, with a devastating triumph in the Listed $120,000 Taj Rossi Series Final (1600m).
The 4¼-length annihilation enhanced his favoritism in the ‘stallion-making’ Group 1 $2 million Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 14.
“Royal Symphony is a very special colt to us – he is the last foal out of the long serving Naturalist and it looks like she saved the best till last,” Wingrove Park CEO Joseph Vella said.
Royal Symphony, who is a perfect three wins from three runs, is trained at Flemington by Tony McEvoy.
