Sweet Treats Delivers First Winner For Castelvecchio
Two year old filly Sweet Treats relished a step up in distance when breaking her maiden over 1500m at Goulburn on Monday, giving her sire Castelvecchio his first winner!

From a pedigree filled with 2YO runners, Sweet Treats has always been a precocious type but it showed in her earlier races that she would need 7 furlongs and beyond to show her best. After a mid-field finish at her previous start over 1200m, Danielle Seib opted to step her up to 1500m against the older horses with a lack of 2YO options available beyond 6 furlongs. The race placement proved a winning move, as did the 2kg claim from in-form apprentice Coriah Keatings- with Sweet Treats carrying just 53kg's on the rain affected track. 

Jumping from barrier 4 in the field of 10 runners, Sweet Treats stepped away slowly but was able to muster speed early. She eventually found cover after being exposed three wide and travelled comfortably coming around the home turn. She gave a good kick to stave off her rivals with a length win, defeating the well backed Devgru and race favourite Bounty By Knight. 

Sweet Treats was a $72,500 weanling purchase from the 2022 Magic Millions National sale from the Segenhoe Stud Draft. Congratulations to her owners Dalanna Bloodstock, J E Abrahams Pty Ltd, Mr G Seto, Red Eye No 2, Mr D Dickson, Mrs K L Stafford, Mr T Stafford, Mr S J Brown, Mr J G Codner, Dream Team, Mrs D L Fisher, Mr T S Fisher, Mr W S Simpson, Thug Thoroughbreds
