AQUANITA HAS TRAINED 154 WINNERS SO FAR THIS SEASON
Stradbroke Success

Aquanita's Robert Smerdon wins the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap Aquanita trainer Robert Smerdon has trained Under the Louvre to win Queensland racing's greatest prize, the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap, on Saturday at Eagle Farm.

The fast finishing five year old had won eight races leading into the rich Queensland sprint, but was also known for his 13 minor placings including the recent Goodwood Handicap.

Smerdon had the Stradbroke in his sights for some time and put the Group 1 Stradbroke success among his biggest highlights in racing.

Winning jockey Dwayne Dunn said his pre-race plan worked to perfection. "Fortunately today everything worked out for him and he got the big race win he deserves."

Under the Louvre won out in a two-horse war from the 250 metres, beating his conqueror in last month's Goodwood, Black Heart Bart. The margin at the finish was a short head, with the rest of the field a further 3 lengths away.

Smerdon acknowledged that the two kilogram turnaround from the Goodwood, and Under the Louvre's fierce determination were pivotal to the successful outcome.

Under the Louvre will now be spelled in the Queensland sunshine before resuming training in preparation for several Spring targets.
