At Ascot in Perth, West Australia, Arrowfield Stud's multiple stakes-winning stallion Not A Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice-Single's Bar, by Rory's Jester) celebrated an elite success when 4YO gelding Scales Of Justice (Not a Single Doubt-Beymatilla, by Umatilla) scored a brilliant front-running 2.75 length win for trainer Lindsey Smith in the $1 million Gr1 Railway Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+, over 5YO entire Good Project (Not a Single Doubt-Euchre, by Final Card) & 4YO mare Perfect Reflection (More Than Ready-Reflected Image, by Bluebird). The talented Scales Of Justice improved his record to 7 wins (including the Gr3 RJ Peters Stakes) and 6 placings from 13 starts for $945,250 earnings. Purchased for $180,000 by his trainer Lindsey Smith & Boomer Bloodstock at the 2014 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale, Scales Of Justice hails from the family of outstanding sprinter Dual Choice (Showdown), an 8-time Gr1 winner of races such as the Oakleigh Plate (twice), Freeway Stakes (now the Manikato Stakes), Lightning Stakes, William Reid Stakes and Caulfield Guineas. Scales Of Justice's victory was helped by a perfectly executed ride by multiple champion Hong Kong jockey Douglas Whyte. "It's good to get another Group One in Western Australia," Whyte told Sky Racing. "I was confident at the 1400 metres. When I turned for home and pressed the button he had a whole lot of engine there." Trainer Lindsey Smith said Scales Of Justice would head to the Gr1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) on 3 December, before a possible Gr1 autumn campaign in Melbourne. "He goes to 1800 metres in the Kingston Town in two weeks and then we'll give him a break and have a look at the Australian Cup [Gr1],'' Smith told racing.com. "He'd be well suited there [at Flemington] on the pace over 2000 metres on that flat track.''
