Alabar stallions sired three of the four Vicbred three year old filly heat winners last night at Ballarat.
Courage Under Fire provided two of the winners - Courageous Call and Whirily School.
After sitting three back on the pegs, Chris Alford got Courageous Call out and in to the clear at the top of the home straight and she flew home to claim victory.
This was the fifth win of her career and takes her earnings past $40,000.
Whirily School scored the easiest of wins in her heat.
After working forward to find the front in the early stages, Whirily School was not troubled.
Dictating the race, she was able to get away with some soft fractions before powering home in 27 untouched to win easily.
Without You (Courage Under Fire) ran a nice race to finish second.
She too got to the front easily and was able to control the race from the front.
Sprinting home her last two quarters in 28.3 and 27.4, Rocknroll Magic won by 2.4 metres.
This was the 14th win of her 21 start career and takes her earnings to $177,620.
All these star fillies will now head to Melton on Friday week to contest Vicbred Semi Finals and hopefully qualify for the Group One Final the following week.
