Queen Sweeper (2 f ex Zilzie by Generous) broke her maiden at the sixth time of asking in the XXXX Dry 2YO Handicap (1110m) at Doomben and in the process became the sixth first-crop winner for the Woodside Park Stud-based sire Rich Enuff (Written Tycoon). 

The Stuart Kendrick-trained two-year-old put her extensive racecourse experience to good use to pull away to beat Real Fine Wine (Real Saga) by three quarters of a length with another neck back to One Shy Ruby (Rubick) in third. 

"She's a filly we've got a lot of time for. Like a lot of two-year-olds it's just taken her a while to put it all together, even after today there's plenty to work on, but it was a pleasing performance," Kendrick said.

"Dale Smith has been great coming up and doing plenty of work with her, it always helps to have that rapport with a rider and that's helped her progress.

"I thought she had the race won last start but just felt the pinch at the end of the 1200, back to 1100 today was right up her alley and she hit the line strong."

"She's still a bit of a big kid but getting a win as a two-year-old is great for all involved and we're pretty confident she'll really flourish as a three-year-old."

A homebred for the Cutts family's Showtime Breeding, Queen Sweeper is out dual Group 3 winner Zilzie (Generous) and she becomes her sixth winner from seven foals to race. 

Zilzie herself is a half-sister to the dams of Group 2 winner The Holy One (Tavistock) and Group 3 scorer Millbank (Keeper). 

Zilzie died in March with her final offspring were two colt's by Glenlogan Park-based sire Show A Heart (Brave Warrior) - who the Cutts Family bred. 

Rich Enuff will stand the 2020 season for a reduced fee of $8,800 (inc GST) having stood the previous two seasons at a fee of $12,100 (inc GST).
