Opinion

  • NSW racing thriving on the back of a winning partnership

    The figures are impressive and the envy of every other state … and, quite rightly, it is the rollout of the value of the increased prize-money levels announced by Racing New South Wales … and exactly where the additional benefits have been placed and to whose advantage … that has… Read More »

     
  • Restricted whip series – What did we learn?

    The opening heat of Racing Victoria’s Country Mile Race Series was run and won at Colac today with the first three finishers Jazz Star, Fiorente Lass and Rewarding Ruby all qualifying for the final at Moonee Valley on 13 March. Racing Victoria have amended the conditions for whip use during… Read More »

     
  • Is Sir Dragonet set to become the best horse in Australia?

    When the dust settles on the Gr 1 CF Orr Stakes over 1400m this Saturday, former Irish star SIR DRAGONET (Camelot-Sparrow) will be talked about as the best horse in the land. And this just after three starts in…this land. But, before we go further, the horse’s name is Sir… Read More »

     
  • Watch 📺 Did this 4YO give us the Golden Slipper winner?

    Go on, ask yourself the question. “What just happened?” “Did that thing just show us that the upcoming Gr 1 Golden Slipper could be won by an as yet raced juvenile?” Couldn’t be. No 2YO wins the Slipper having not started by late January. That’s not how the system works…. Read More »

     
  • Aim wins a controversial Magic Millions Guineas

    Punters held their breath and many screamed when the jock of the $2.15 favourite for the $2million 3YO Magic Millions, fell off her with 300m to travel. It was simply amazing footage. ISOTOPE was bursting through along the inside of her arch rival AWAY GAME (Snitzel-Elusive Wonder)) when she just… Read More »

     
  • Eagle Farm racecourse horror story continues

    The horror story that is the Eagle Farm track has once again reared its ugly head and has yet again put a big question mark against racing’s immediate future at the metropolitan venue. It hasn’t taken long for the latest round of agitation from trainers to reach an official point… Read More »

     
  • Punters left furious with Terry Bailey

    Favourite punters who crunched Sayumi in race 7 at Moonee Valley, (Australia) last night would be one part in disbelief, 2 parts in utter sadness and three parts furiously irate, after Terry Bailey, known infamously for going the ‘early crow’ and getting it horribly wrong produced; arguably one of the… Read More »

     
  • Are Racing Australia and RV on a collision course?

    What is really driving Racing Victoria’s (RV) agenda to fast forward so called ‘whip reform’ and explore options on their own … a move which currently flies directly in the face of the rest of the country who are playing along with the bigger picture and waiting for the pending… Read More »

     
  • Is Hollie Doyle the best female jockey in the world?

    Probably the most prestigious award in English sport is the BBC Sports Personality of the Year. And the incredible, phenomenal, astonishing achievements of jockey Hollie Doyle have her on the coveted list to win the 2020 version this year. That is a fantastic achievement and deserves massive recognition. I truly… Read More »

     
  • Watch 📺 Did stewards get this inquiry wrong?

    What started out a great day for star rider Brenton Avdulla at Rosehill yesterday, descended into chaos – and none of it appears to be his doing. Firstly, his 10 out of 10 ride in race 1 on ROBODIRA (Husson-Don’t Blink) a first starter who carried blinkers and sat on… Read More »

     
  • How is this horse allotted a staggering 65kg?

    Connections of the US-bred import ANTILLES (War Front-Wonder Of Wonders) have had to put a 4kg claimer on this afternoon at Canberra because he was allotted 65kg. And, in the Open grade Federal, that’s an awful lot. Made more surprising when you consider Antilles is only a Class 1 horse!… Read More »

     
  • Is the Alligator Blood media attention overdone?

    It really is quite amazing that a horse that last ran nearly a month ago and who will not race again for at least the next four to six months is garnering headlines on a daily basis. Of course, the drama involved in trainer David Vandyke dismissing Alligator Blood from… Read More »

     
  •  
  • Another big race another whip issue

    Flouting the whip rule to try and win a multi-million dollar race is nothing new … but, by any standards, Kerrin McEvoy’s use of the whip on the runner-up Tiger Moth in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup arguably did both the rider and the industry a disservice. Make no mistake, McEvoy is… Read More »

     
  • Aidan O’Brian must be ready to kick the cat

    We all know the exploits of the great Irishman Aidan O’Brien. Not only is he seemingly without peer as a trainer of race horses, he has raised a family of champion thoroughbred people too. His son, Joseph, as we know just won the Melbourne Cup for the second time. But… Read More »

     
  • Did stewards forget to suspend Rachel King?

    The best horse won The Everest on Saturday, but did we see a double standard in the race, or perhaps just a correction in the operating mode of the NSW stewards? They are fair questions when you consider Hugh Bowman was harangued, his name besmirched, his riding reputation questioned, his… Read More »

     
  • Watch 📺 Is this the worst disqualification in history?

    We all know American racing isn’t as good as Australian racing. Nor as good as: Hong Kong racing, New Zealand racing, French racing, Irish racing, English racing, German racing etc, etc. Not as good in the sense they allow ridiculous race calling, they run for poor prizemoney in the main,… Read More »

     
  • Are racing authorities disrespecting Phar Lap?

    Saturday’s outstanding field, and subsequent equally as impressive race, the Winx Stakes is here to stay. The Gr 1 feature which was worth $500,000 over 1400m at Randwick, was won sensationally by VERRY ELLEEGANT (Zed-Opulence) narrowly from STAR OF THE SEAS (Ocean Park-Stella Livia) and FIERCE IMPACT (Deep Impact-Keiai Gerbera)… 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 »

     
  • Trainers scratching at Randwick causes a stir

    A late scratching at Randwick has caused a bit of a social media stir with many thinking it was due to a bias in the track. Trainer David Payne was allowed to scratch his horse Montefilia following the start of the meeting in what looked to be due to the… Read More »
