It was wonderful for the stable and connections to see the gutsy win of ZEVADA in the opening event at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Having only his eighth race start he managed to handle racing the opposite to secure his third race victory. At the home turn he was last and a good 8 - 10 lengths off the leaders. Jockey Jim Cassidy got him to the outside and he worked home brilliantly to secure victory by half a length on the line.

Tony Noonan was delighted with the victory ' Zevada is a very exciting horse. He will just continue to improve and will relish the longer trips. He has a lot of maturing to do and for him to win like that at his first time in Queensland was very satisfying - the future looks bright!'

Congratulations to his owners Peter & Jen McMahon, Rex & Wendy Gorell - who were both able to celebrate back to back Saturday wins in Brisbane - Roy & Virginia Woodhouse we hope that there are many more victories in store!
