Letham Stud-based sire Unusual Suspect was represented by two runaway winners in Queensland on Saturday. 

Our Spider was the super impressive winner of the Farm Protectors Benchmark 60 Handicap (1805m) under the lights at Toowoomba. 

Sent out the $2.40 favourite, Our Spider settled back in the field from barrier six, a long way off the leaders before weaving his way through the field from the 600m to run away an all too easy four-length victory. 

The six-year-old gelding was ridden by apprentice Emma MacPherson for trainer John Thomas. 

Our Spider is now a four-race winner for his owners P F Edwards & S M Neylon.  

An hour and three-quarters north in Nanango, the John Byrne-trained gelding Dinny’s A Suspect won the Heritage Bang Nanango Class B Handicap (1600m) by 4.5 lengths under jockey Kelly Gates. 

It was Dinny’s A Suspect has now won two races for his owners B J Mulkerin, J G Byrne & N J O'Leary. 

A Group One winning son of champion Californian sire Unusual Heat, Unusual Suspect stands at Letham Stud in Whanganui for $5,000 GST + LFG in 2022. Contact us for more info.
