QUEENSLAND, Au. — Promising two-year-old Sizzlepel has cheated herself out of a holiday by recovering well from a recent win. Sizzlepel will be back up at the Gold Coast on Friday after leading all the way to win over 1350m at Ipswich on Sunday. The chestnut filly steps up to 1400m against a similar field to the one she beat at Ipswich.

Bryan Guy, who trains in partnership with his son Daniel, said Sizzlepel had been booked for a spell but had thrived since her Ipswich run. “We have a bit of a wrap on her and she is like a lot of her sire Sizzling’s horses who get better with time,” Guy said. “She has been looking for more ground and 1400 metres on her home track looks ideal. Sizzlepel can run Friday and then go for a break. We think she will be more than handy later.”

Veteran jockey Glen Colless won on Sizzlepel on Sunday and was keen to stick with the filly. “Glen is riding as well as ever and we get him whenever we can. He still rates a horse beautifully and lives up to his cool reputation,” Guy said.

Colless does a lot of track and race riding for the Chris Waller stable but Guy uses him when he can. Sizzlepel is one of several promising horses which have boosted the Guy stable in recent weeks.

“Things have been a bit low-key for us this season but we have built up our numbers and our quality,” Guy said. “I think you will see more of us in the winner’s circle in coming months.”

The Trainers

The father and son duo, Bryan and Daniel Guy, learned their craft under the tutelage of patriarch, the late great Sydney trainer Ray Guy, before taking their acquired skills to the Gold Coast with great success.

The Gold Coast has everything an owner would want for their racehorse, a great climate, outstanding facilities and the course hosts a meeting every week while remaining in close proximity to Brisbane or the rich northern NSW racing circuit.

Bryan and Daniel Guy know what it takes to produce a winner from the Gold Coast, winning trainers’ premierships at the venue and in Brisbane with an average of more than 65 victories per season for the last decade.
