Ballina stunner for Not A Single Doubt

Never Doubt Me gave Not A Single Doubt his latest feature winner in the juvenile division with a stunning victory in the Ballina Bracelet in Friday.  

Never Doubt Me (2f Not A Single Doubt – Anna Liffey by Dieu D’Or) won by four lengths for Port Macquarie owner-trainer Ron Godbolt.  She was a snip at $8,000 from the Toolooganvale draft at the Inglis Winter Sale in June 2010.

Sepoy’s sire Elusive Quality ($3.04 million) will capture the 2YO sires’ premiership from Not A Single Doubt ($2.07 million) this season.  The title is a fait accompli for winning the Golden Slipper.

Overall, Not A Single Doubt has been the most consistent sire of two year-olds in 2010-11.  Exceed And Excel (30) is well on top in the wins category from Not A Single Doubt (21) and it’s daylight to third.
The Not A Single Doubt youngsters win and then keep winning.  The flag-bearer among his third crop this season has been Canberra based flyer Karuta Queen.  She won four in a row including the Magic Millions 2YO Classic.

Another of his Canberra fillies – Jackpot Queen – claimed the Wellington Boot and before backing up at Randwick and Flemington.

His Perth filly Single Spice was an Ascot winner in October and returned from a spell to claim the Listed Supremacy Stakes in February.  She was also G3 placed in the WA Sires’ Produce Stakes.

The Ballina Bracelet was the fourth win for Never Doubt Me.  The widely travelled filly had been successful at Coffs Harbour on New Year’s Eve and followed up at Tamworth and Scone.

Never Doubt Me is a half-sister to winners by Baryshnikov, Way of Light and Honours List.  Second dam Liffey Lace (Sagace) was bred in the USA and was a Listed winner in Italy.

Not A Single Doubt has sired 98 winners of 216 races so far at a 62% strike-rate.  Australian stakes winners Doubtful Jack and Squamosa led the charge among his first two crops.  

Not A Single Doubt stands alongside his own sire Redoute’s Choice at Arrowfield Stud at a $24,750 (inc gst) service fee.
