CIARON Maher's stable failed to win the Australian Derby or the Inglis Sires at Randwick on Saturday but had a winning double at Caulfield.
The Winslow-raised Maher, who trains in partnership with David Eustace, was trackside at Randwick to see his classy two-year-old filly Loving Gaby run second in the $1 million Inglis Sires and Global Exchange finish sixth in the $2 million Australian Derby in Sydney.
Think Bleue and Naantail were successful in Melbourne.
The multiple group one-winning trainer was happy with the performances of Loving Gaby and Global Exchange.
"They both ran very well," he said.
"Loving Gaby and Global Exchange lost no admirers with their efforts.
"I think going forward they both have promising careers.
"I'm really looking forward to them running in some of the rich races over the spring in Melbourne."
Think Bleue had the services of stable apprentice Teo Nugent when she won her fifth race from 11 starts.
Former Warrnambool-based jockey Nikita Beriman was the winning rider on Naantali.
The day ended on a sour note for Beriman.
She was suspended for 15 meetings on a careless riding charge following her ride on Spirit Of Aquada.
Beriman pleaded guilty to the charge and asked stewards if her suspension could begin at the conclusion of the Caulfield meeting next Saturday. She will return to riding on April 27.
Meanwhile, Symon Wilde's Inn Keeper stamped himself as a genuine Wangoom Handicap hope with a fourth-placing, narrowly beaten by Bandipur, in a $125,000 race Caulfield.
