RIDERS Hannah Phillips and Andrew Mallyon and trainers Desleigh Forster and Barry Phillips were regional racing standouts last weekend.
The two Phillips teamed for a race-to-race double at Thangool on January 25, posting victories in the Maiden Plate (800m) and Benchmark 55 Handicap, over the same trip.
Well fancied to start as a $3.50 chance despite failing to break the ice in any of his previous eight runs, Glam Rock opened the account for Phillips' Kingaroy stable and turned the race into a one-act affair.
He scorched the track to stop the clock at 46.6 seconds and the runner-up Military Ghost finished six lengths adrift of the winner with another six and a half lengths back to third placed Drogon.
In the following race, Stick With Me ($7) ran even quicker time to beat Right In Black and Rainbow Sparkles in 45.59 seconds.
At the Australia Day card at Beaudesert, the Eagle Farm-based Forster provided Zamzara ($1.55) and Coastal Prince ($2.25) to win the TAB Maiden (1650m) and Class 5 Handicap (1050m), respectively.
Zamzara was at his best to manage a breakthrough win at his 11th start. From his previous 10 assignments Zamzara had managed only a solitary placing when second in maiden grade at Doomben on New Year's Day.
Coastal Prince (Real Saga-Noosa Princess) is closing in on $150,000 in racing prizemoney after claiming a fourth career win when better than rivals by a widening two lengths margin in the Class 3 (1650m).
The win pushed his raceday pay to $144,900.
The four-year-old gave Mallyon the second leg of winning double after he rode Statesville to win the Two-Year-Old Maiden (1200m).
Statesville (Written Tycoon-Nicked and Court) showed improvement on his debut fourth at the Sunshine Coast on January 12 to breeze home nearly three lengths clear of the field.
