Race 8




craiglea stud

The Craiglea Stud team of Stan & Marilyn Johnson and their talented daughter, Krystal Johnson, who is the trainer of the entire Craiglea operation have had a ripper week.

Executed, did just what his name implies to the bookies as he was heavily backed from $10 to start $5.50 and win the listed Lightning Handicap @ Doomben on Wednesday. It gave young Krystal Johnson her first stakes win as a trainer but there promises to be plenty more to come as she just goes from strength to strength! 

Yesterday they crew were straight up to Townsville in the truck for the first race of the day with Craiglea Delek being met with heavy support again, to once again land the gamble as he won with a leg in the air by a half length. 

A hatrick of winners across QLD is a very real possibility for the team as they have Craiglea Wandoo in the last at Rockhampton. His form is superb and he’s suited by the long open run in at the track. 

Stable Flying. I think Krystal can make it a hatrick of training wins with this talented rising 4 year old.
