Great day at the office for team HALLMARK!
20 May 2018

Lisdoonvarna ($5.50), who raced up on the pace, beat the favourite Seaway ($3.60) who came from behind, with Gaulois ($5.50) another half neck third.

"We would like to go to Brisbane with her. There are plenty of 1350 to 1400-metre races that would suit to get her some black-type which is the aim" said co-trainer Amanda Turner.

Regular jockey Peter Wells, who has ridden the three-year-old in seven of her eight starts was also complimentary of the talented filly’s effort. 

“She is building an impressive record and she came back off the speed and raced in a different pattern and I am very proud of her for that” said Wells. 

One race later at Rosehill saw last start winner EASY EDDIE (Super Easy ex Twin Town) run into the placings and continue on his solid run of form, and over in Queensland SUPER EASY'S glam filly PROM QUEEN (ex Finishing School) made a successful Australian debut at Doomben finishing second over 1200m. 

The Hallmark Stud brand also featured at Flemington with Hallmark graduate ECLAIR CALLING (Tartan Bearer ex Pink Pier) winning over 1600m in the hands of Noel Callow.

ECLAIR CALLING, who was bred by Power Bloodstock, was sold to Phillp Stokes for a record-breaking $525,000 at the 2015 Karaka Select Sale.

"A great day at the office for the team and so rewarding to see the Hallmark Stud brand featuring in three states across the Tasman today" said Mark Baker of Hallmark Stud.

"It looks likely that Lisdoonvarna will head to Queensland in search of black-type and it will be a real thrill to see her and Prom Queen representing Super Easy at that level in Australia".
