RACE three at Clifford Park may have been delayed due to the storm which hit the Darling Downs on Saturday night but the wait was well worth it for connections of roughing Are Tee Ess.

The $43.50 roughie took punters by surprise when he secured a 2 ¾ length victory in his 21st career start in the wizardsofozband.com Maiden Handicap over 1100 metres.

Sara Saal-Winter-trained Are Tee Ess beat home Bundu Boy and Bituminous with jockey Masayuki Abe on board to break its maiden as a six-year-old.

The victory followed a delay in the seven-race meeting due to heavy rain falling at the track.

Earlier, heavily-backed $1.70 favourite Typhoon Red continued its good form to take out the SNP Security Class 3 Plate (1200m) 2 ½ lengths clear of Angellus Belle ($3.80). The Kevin Kemp-trained four-year-old gelding now has a record of four wins from eight starts.

Race two favourite Zero Limit ($2.25) was then outgunned in the Blades Joinery Class 1 Handicap over 1300 metres by Maker's Marque ($5.20), who beat home Scarlett Sun by 5 ½ lengths.

That was the night's biggest winning margin, while it was much closer in the race five Toowoomba West Special School Maiden Plate over 1625 metres.

Favourite Sniff and Golden Vogue hit the line together and couldn't be split, with the two horses dead-heating half-a-length clear of Not Courageable.
