  • Watch 📺 Anthony Manton calls it all too well

    Recently Darren Flindell has been getting rather creative with his race calls. Which is often lost on most punters but appreciated by those who do get them.

  • Top jockeys suffer heavy fall at Canberra

    Top jockey Brenton Avdulla was fined $4000 when he signalled with 50m to go for She’s Extreme to ‘come on, catch up’ when his mount Fireburn thrashed her in the Gr 1 Sires’ two weeks ago. Many thought it an unfair fine as there was no malice involved, no chance… Read More »

  • Watch 📺 Jockey drops hands and costs punters and connections

    Gee whiz if you backed the Anthony Cummings trained GALACTIC ANGEL (Zoustar – Lucky Angel) at Hawkesbury today to run the quinella with the winner LUKEY LUKE (Denman – Somethin’ Leicajem) you’d be filthy right now. The winner started $6.50 while Galactic Angel was a $31 chance and she ran… Read More »

  • Watch 📺 Cocky jockey gets pants pulled down

    What would Aussie stewards do if this happened? At Aqueduct in New York today, jockey Jose Lezcana (in the light blue and white, number 4) ranged up three wide coming to the bend. He had the horses on his inside completely covered. His mount was cantering, head on chest and… Read More »
