WEDNESDAY: March 27, 2024: THE more they win, the better the price!

Hawkesbury trainer Marc Chevalier is doing a terrific job with Everyone’s A Star, who clinched another Kensington victory today.

The Star Turn mare made it two in a row against her own sex on the inside Royal Randwick circuit - and Tyler Schiller has been aboard on both occasions.

After landing a Midway Benchmark 72 Handicap (1100m) on March 13 at $6, Everyone’s A Star was sent out at $10 this time in a similar race over 1150m – and did the job again.

After beginning well and sitting on the pace, she beat another $10 chance Southern Chilli and Waikiki ($6.50), leaving her rivals with no excuses.

“She was impressive as she went up 2kg,” Chevalier said en route home.

“I was a bit worried when she began so well and raced up outside the leader, but Tyler took advantage of her good beginning and there was nothing else he could do anyway.

“He kept Everyone’s A Star in a good rhythm, and they had their chance to run her down.”

Whilst Chevalier, who has now prepared six winners this season, is understandably keen to get a hat-trick with his mare, it won’t be in the next couple of weeks.

“I’ll go easy on her for a while, but she will stay in the stable,” he said.

“Everyone’s A Star is good mates with stablemate The Crimson Idol (who races at Hawkesbury tomorrow), and I don’t want to separate them.

“I’m looking at another race in town at the end of next month to give her the chance to add a Saturday city event to her record.”

That will be a Midway Benchmark 72 Handicap (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on April 27.

Meanwhile, Chevalier hasn’t lost faith in his stayer Torrens, who will have his final Sydney Cup trial in the Group 2 Chairman’s Quality (2600m) at Randwick on Saturday week.

“I did nominate him for the Tancred Stakes (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday, but it would have been a tough task at weight-for-age,” he said.

“Torrens likes Randwick and the 2600m will suit him, provided we don’t get rain-affected ground.

“Provided he runs well, he will back up in the Sydney Cup (3200m) there a week later.”
