It was appropriate that  the runaway win by She Goes Pop's at the Sunshine Coast yesterday completed a simultaneous milestone for Jeff Lloyd and Toby Edmonds.

This season the jockey and trainer have been the most dominant partnership in Queensland racing since the Bruce McLachlan-Brian York era in the late 1980s.

She Goes Pop ($4.40) gave Edmonds 50 metropolitan winners for the first time in a season. Her win also brought up 50 overall winners for the season for the Lloyd-Edmonds partnership, the first time it has been done by a trainer-jockey combination in Queensland.

"She Goes Pop was never going to lose. It is a great tribute to Toby's ability," Lloyd said.

Trainer Darren Bell was also celebrating at yesterday's Caloundra meeting when the ironically named Misery scored a hard-fought win.

After Silver Fox finished a close second earlier in the day, Misery was only Bell's second runner since his stable was closed in mid-December after an outbreak of the highly infectious respiratory disease strangles. He had had no runners since December 17 when stewards shut down his stables.

"I only had four horses with signs of strangles but they shut both my stable barns with 22 horses," Bell said.

"I would like to thank my owners who stuck by me, only one horse was moved. It has been very expensive for us. This is an emotional win for us."
