Rendezvous with the winner's stall

PERSEVERENCE is paying dividends with Fatal Rendezvous.

The four-year-old has broken through at career start number 13 and there now look to be more wins in store.

"She has finally matured into a very nice type of mare,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick.

"It was great to see her win. The owners have been very patient,'' he said.

Fatal Rendezvous ($5), which had place five times previously, broke through at the Sunshine Coast Friday night meeting on December 16.

Ridden by Ryan Wiggins, she wouldn't be denied this time, winning by a length.

"She did it tough from the wide gate but fought on strongly," Kendrick said.

Graceville runs well for Tarrant

CONSISTENT mare Graceville's reunion with jockey Luke Tarrant has reaped dividends.
 
The five-year-old' boosted her future breeding barn value and showed she's in career-best form, bringing up her first Saturday city win at Doomben.
 
Tarrant jumped Graceville ($21) to the front from a wide gate and she was never challenged, winning the Ratings Band 0-70 (1050m) by one-and-three-quarter lengths on December 2.
 
He has now ridden the mare four times for one win, two seconds and a fourth.
  
Tarrant said he was thankful to Kendrick Racing and connections for giving him the opportunity on the horse in town.
 
"I appreciate everything I get at the moment,'' he said.
 
The well-deserved win was Graceville's fourth in her 33-start career and she's also placed 14 times.
 
It was her second run back from a spell. She finished third of four runners at Ipswich when resuming, but was only beaten a half-length.
