Takings ($4.20) made it three wins in a row to take his metropolitan to 16 winners and equal fifth place on the premiership.

Currie, who is a long way in front in the state title with 87 winners, five minutes earlier had trained Cool Drafts to win the Basil Nolan Memorial Hcp at Warwick, on the Darling Downs.

He is a member of the Darling Downs-based Nolan clan on his mother's side and like everyone in racing was shocked when Basil Nolan Jr was killed in a farm accident in November.

Basil Nolan Jnr was manager of Raheen Stud which he ran with his father Basil Sr who is boss of the Queensland breeders association.

“Takings' wins was terrific because he is raced by a group of friends and he to come out to win on a Saturday,” Nolan said.

“But to win a race to honour Basil was areal thrill. It was just a pity I couldn't be there.”
