On the Australian track over the Queen's Birthday holiday long-weekend, Victoria's Noor Elaine Farm-based stallion Oamaru Force (Geiger Counter-Life Force, by Vain) added a Gr1 triumph when 6YO mare Mid Summer Music (Oamaru Force-Samsara Lady, by Nassipour) scored an upset 1.75-lengths victory (at odds of 30-1) in the $1 million Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm in Brisbane. Mid Summer Music (ridden by Luke Nolen for trainer Peter Moody) defeated top-weighted 4YO gelding Buffering (Mossman-Action Annie, by Anabaa) & 7YO gelding Happy Zero (Danzero-Have Love, by Canny Lad).
