ROY L McCabe has enjoyed two wins in as many days thanks to the efforts of My Girl Grace and I Stole Your Love.
The Bathurst trainer picked up a dominant victory at Grenfell on Saturday with My Girl Grace before I Stole Your Love led the whole trip to win at home on Bathurst Cup day.
My Girl Grace justified her $3 favouritism - and perhaps told punters she should have started even shorter-priced - with her win by over four lengths in the Class 2 Handicap (1,200 metres) under the guidance of Ashleigh Stanley.
Sadly for connections My Girl Grace broke down after the race and was forced into retirement.
However, McCabe said there's still a happy future ahead for the mare after she broke her pedal bone.
"She's a nice horse. She won four from 10 starts for us but it's unfortunate that she broke down," he said.
"She will head off to stud to be a broodmare. She did a cracking class record up there. She's been a wonderful mare for the connections.
"They're going to get her x-rayed, fixed up and look after her and do the right thing by her."
The good times continued for the Bathurst trainer at Tyers Park when his recent acquisition I Stole Your Love couldn't be caught in Edney Ryan's 'The Barb' Benchmark 58 Handicap (1,200m).
Anthony Cavallo got the mare to the front of the field and successfully held off all challengers in the sprint got home.
The victory in the $30,000 showcase race gave McCabe the biggest win to date of his training career.
"She's won two from four now. We bought her from Bloodstock Auctions around three months ago just looking for another horse," McCabe said.
"I told [Cavallo] to lead on her because I thought she was a leading horse. She was just too good for them and she kept on going down the straight.
"We definitely thought she'd be figuring in the first few places."
Prior to the weekend McCabe had just three horses currently in work but his stable of mares, with the inclusion of Gaze Beyond, have enjoyed at least two wins each this year.
