KENDRICK Racing has capped an amazing weekend with four winners at the Sunshine Coast meeting.
The stable saddled up 15 winners over the two days for five winners, three seconds, two thirds and a fourth.
Following metropolitan success with Tidal Creek and apprentice Bailey Wheeler at Doomben on Saturday, the combination struck again with an early double at Caloundra on Sunday.
They opened the account when Enuff He Said ($7) won a Class 4 (1800m).
Trainer Stuart Kendrick expected the horse to relish the spacious Sunshine Coast circuit and he used every bit of it to grab the win.
The five-year-old was ridden off the pace, but Wheeler drove him home late and he stuck his head out in the blanket finish.
Kendrick and Wheeler then looked unstoppable when the promising Lost In Transit resumed with a good win in a Class 2 (1000m).
It completed a hat-trick for the horse, having won his past two before a let-up.
Lost In Transit ($3.20) was untroubled in winning by three lengths.
The stable went close a couple of races later with a $71 chance when Bonded Affair ran second in Maiden (1000m) on debut.
A quinella in the next with Kingston’s Here ($2.60-fav) beating stablemate Vetta Velocita in a Class 6 (1200m) made it three winners for the day.

Zhuang Shi ($3.90), ridden by Ryan Wiggins, then swooped late in a 0-62 (1200m) to make it four winners.
“Riding him quietly did the trick,” Kendrick said.
It was his third win in 10 starts, but first since February this year.
Kendrick said the stable was buzzing after the weekend’s results.
“It is always satisfying to achieve these results on behalf of our wonderful owners,” he said.
“A lot of the credit has to go to our staff who put in a tremendous amount of work to help achieve this race day success.”
