  • Jockey’s decision a huge tip for Kembla Grange runner

    Want to win on the punt today? Well, astute jockey watching is a big part of some professional punter’s armoury and at Kembla today, a $4.90 chance might just get us in front for the weekend. Here’s how it works. Top jock Jason Collett ALWAYS has first refusal for trainer… Read More »

     
  • Opinion: Is Nature Strip the Worlds Best Sprinter?

    The World Horse Racing authority has taken a liking to our super sprinter NATURE STRIP (Nicconi-Strikeline). On Wednesday afternoon, it posted on social media the question: who would win between Nature Strip and the wonder European sprinter BATTAASH (Dark Angel-Anna Law) over 5 furlongs (1000m). This is a clear acknowledgement… Read More »

     
  • Horse at the centre of controversy in at Rosehill

    The horse at the centre of the controversial Randwick scratching last weekend, is scheduled to race at Rosehill this Saturday. Her name is MONTEFILIA (Kermadec-Bana Wu) and last weekend her scratching sent punters and rival trainers to the rule books after Racing NSW stewards tweeted she had been scratched due… Read More »

     
  • Hiccup for Missile Stakes favourite Melody Belle

    Shortly after the Rosehill acceptances this morning a scare charged through the camp of Kiwi trainer Jamie Richards. His New Zealand champion MELODY BELLE (Commands-Meleka Belle) came out in a rash. Now, this doesn’t stop them performing but stewards can scratch a horse based on the ugly appearance a rash… Read More »

  • Racing industry rallies behind trainer Danny Williams

    Out of the shadows comes hope and light. That’s the message Goulburn trainer Danny Williams and connections of the ill-fated Hot’N’Hazy woke to today. One of Australia’s most successful syndicators, James Harron, has reached out to Williams, a man he did not know personally, to say he was going to… Read More »

     
  • Worlds best to go head to head in Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe

    Following his 4th straight Gr 1 Goodwood Cup win, last night, long-distance staying freak STADIVARIUS (Sea The Stars-Private Life) is set to compete in a Gr 1 ‘sprint’. Well, sprint for him. His trainer John Gosden declared he would come down to the 2400m of the Prix de l’Arc de… Read More »

     
  • Watch: Plastic running rail saves jockey and horse

    This could have been ugly. LADY LUCY LU today in the U.S. was home. She was leading and just had to keep going straight, but instead when the circular track linked up with the course proper, she lost her marbles. Well, her bearings anyway. Watch 📺 👇 Thankfully, it appears… Read More »

     
  • Father and son set to dominate at Taree

    Today will most likely be an historic day for champion NSW bush jockey Andrew Gibbons and his family. His son, Dylan, rides at Taree, as does Andrew. It will be the first race ride for young Dylan and his mount STAR RAIDER (Star Witness-Charge At Dawn) is going to take… Read More »

     
  • Watch: You won’t believe what happens in this race

    Those of us who bet know all too well that sinking feeling when you’re on something but by the home bend, it’s gone, had enough, tent is folded, etc. Most times, nearly always, you know it’s history because it shortens stride and wobbles. I was on PLAGUE STONE at Grafton… Read More »

     
  • Damian Lane could win the Kentucky Derby

    This may be a long shot, or maybe not, but Australia’s Damian Lane could win the Gr 1 Kentucky Derby this year. Yep, I hear you laughing, but if the dominoes fall into place he could. This is how. Tomorrow he rides the $2.90 favourite CAFE PHAROAH (American Pharoah-Mary’s Follies)… Read More »

     
  • Opinion: Should this horse have won on protest?

    Ok, we are all armchair Stewards so I have one here you should look at it, ponder over, then answer this question. Should this filly have won this race? Her name is JOVIALITY (I Am Invincible-Limbo Down). She is ridden by visiting 3kg claiming Kiwi apprentice Casey Waddell. After missing… Read More »

     
  • Watch: Riderless horse claims run of the week

    I’ve just watched all the replays from the weekend’s racing and well, I have to say this. Probably the best run all day was that of the riderless horse PRIMA STELLA (Redoute’s Show-Italian beauty) in the Sth Grafton Cup Prelude over 1600m. And here’s why. The horse reared at the… Read More »

     
  • Matt Dunn close to perfect at home

    On the day leading NSW bush trainer Matty Dunn was asked whether he thought a permanent move to Rosehill would be on the cards soon, he comes out, flexes his muscles, and nearly trains the program. At Murwillumbah on Thursday, Dunn had runners in all 6 races. He trains his… Read More »

     
  • Watch: Is this the worst race call ever?

    Those immortal words of ‘the accurate one’ Bill Collins regarding Kingston Town in the Cox Plate, stayed with him until the day he died. They being of course, “Kingston Town can’t win,” when he saw with 500m to go the King not travelling well. Of course, history records that he… Read More »

     
  • Watch: Is this the tightest finish ever?

    Have a look at this. It’s about the best blanket finish you’ve seen in a while. As you watch the footage, pick the winner 200m from home. Then do it again at the 100m, 50m mark and 10cm from home. What a finish. What a horse race! Notforalongtime gets the… Read More »

     
  • Opinion: Did stewards get this protest wrong?

    Earlier this week we were full of praise when the Stewards upheld a protest, despite the fav being relegated for a $31 chance. The response from readers was on point too – no-one spoke through their pocket and everyone made reasoned evaluations based on the footage provided. Well, this time… Read More »

     
  • Watch: Ignorance from American commentators is laughable

    OMG – oh my goodness. The ignorance shown from these American commentators is laughable. As are the missives all over social media by horse players without a clue. Firstly, watch the footage and notice – pay close attention to – the inside horse with the blue cap on because he… Read More »

     
  • Watch: Punters in uproar over upheld protest

    There was quite the hue and cry out of Hawkesbury yesterday when the stewards upheld a protest. The favourite at $3.50 and very heavily tried late, CHIEF GERONIMO (More Than Ready-The Warrior Woman) was in front all the way down the home straight, even crossed the line first, but had… Read More »

     
  • Knockout omen quinella bet for punters

    Has there ever been a more glaring omen wager than what we see at Canberra races this afternoon? It’s a quinella bet, and will return a healthy dividend if it gets up. The horses are FENECH (Redoute’s Choice-National Colour) and BOXING (Written Tycoon-Many facets) in race 3. For those who… Read More »
