Opinion

  • Regumate, Racing NSW secret weapon

    Here’s something you don’t read every day. Massive and extraordinarily successful owner Bob Peters is bringing his two stunning mares to race in Sydney because…..of an anomaly re a certain drug. It’s called Regumate. And it improves most mares on the racetrack who are on it. Regumate is one of… Read More »

     
  • Does the Victoria Derby need a change?

    With all the talk of late surrounding improved prizemoney levels, naming new races, and which state has the best racing carnivals, perhaps it might be prudent to take a step back and look at what we already have. Not the new stuff or the new debates, but at the races… Read More »

     
  • Stewards miss blatant overuse of the whip

    Connections of the heavily tried $2.00 favourite in race 6 at Sale yesterday are entitled to be miffed. And, while I’m not advocating they go the way of Gary and Mary West, who own Maximum Security, the dethroned Kentucky Derby winner and take action in the courts, at the very… Read More »

     
  • Australian race callers the best in the world

    I was at Toronto’s beautiful Woodbine racetrack for a race meeting last week. And a big smile split my face like a watermelon when I heard a familiar – accent. It was music to my ears when I heard the race caller tell all and sundry that the horses were… Read More »

     
  • Kentucky Derby incident a catalyst for rule changes?

    Is it fair to say, as Bob Dylan once did, ‘that the answer is blowing in the wind’? Certainly when it comes to horse racing rules, the winds of change are very, very close and North American racing actually needed the upheaval that occurred at the recent Kentucky Derby to… Read More »

     
  • Interesting horse names attract attention

    I love racehorse names. So bear with me while I rattle off a few that attracted my attention these past few days, and that might be of interest to you. STRANGELY NAMED Last night in Hong Kong, at the Happy Valley race meeting, race caller Brett Davis described the all… Read More »

     
  • Fans confused over race programming

    Racing fans are confused over the programming for this weekends feature Sydney meeting at Scone. Scone will host their two day carnival this week ahead of the Inglis sales with the Inglis Guineas being the feature race on Saturday’s card although the race has been schedule to start the meeting… Read More »

     
  • Kentucky Derby decision the worst ever in racing?

    Only in America. Maximum Security led from start to finish and crossed the line first in the 145th Kentucky Derby, then loses it in the stewards room. Why? How? Wow! Result overturned! Following an objection after interference caused by Maximum Security, Country House is the @KentuckyDerby winner! #KyDerby pic.twitter.com/XgeZrHZxgC —… Read More »

     
  • Whip rule comes under fire again

    The whip rule is set to come under fire once again with jockey Michael Dee being fined for overuse of the whip on Anzac Day where his ride dead heated in Race 4 at Flemington. The rule surrounding over use of the whip continues to come under fire and that… Read More »

     
  • Who should be crowned Champion 2YO?

    So who is Australia’s Champion 2YO? With pretty much just the Brisbane Winter Carnival left of the juvenile season, one must emerge as the Champion, and alongside of it, the Champion Male and Champion Female. And unless someone jumps out of the woodwork and lands a couple of Gr 1s… Read More »

     
  • Are stallion fees getting ridiculous?

    Plenty of stallion news has surfaced and here is the latest. The blockbuster news was the release of the Widden Stud stallion roster and Trapeze Artist (Snitzel-Treppes) debuts at a staggering, no wait , whopping $99,000. To bring how ambitious that price is into perspective, his sire Snitzel hasn’t left… Read More »

     
  • Winx – Will she make the cut as a broodmare?

    With Winx retiring comes the obvious question: who will she go to first? Lots of social media comments have Justify, American Pharoah and Snitzel high on the list. Personally, I think she grew rather fond of staring at The Autumn Sun during training and that relationship should be consummated. But… Read More »

     
  • Why is Winx being retired?

    We know Winx is a freak of nature. We know what she did two starts ago against a very determined and brave superstar in Happy Clapper and then backed it up winning with absolute ease against some decent up and coming horses in the likes of Brutal and Dreamforce. We… Read More »

     
  • Winx’s kicked sign – What to do with it?

    Winx has left us all with myriad memories. All good. Some even spectacular. And she should again in the Gr 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes on Saturday. But in real life terms, in reality, in hard copy version, in something tangible we can all keep, from her race track days, I’m… Read More »
