Opinion

  • 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 »

     
  • Winx – How much is the Champion mare worth?

    With the seemingly hundreds of million dollar babies selling at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney this week, it’s a great time to reflect on the values of Aussie horses. Many people of course caught up with the wave of emotion surrounding the champion mare, will have her placed… Read More »

     
  • US deaths to put pressure on Australian whip rules?

    Ok, here is the update on the Santa Anita track, the world of horse racing in general, and what will probably take place. And it’s not a pretty picture. Santa Anita is the tipping point for change in our sport whether we like it or not. And as sure as… Read More »

     
  • Should whips be banned in Australia?

    When racing stopped at the famed Santa Anita course in March, following the deaths of 22 horses over a scant few weeks, the why and hows started immediately. The owner of the track, The Stronach Group, when finally allowing racing to return three weeks later, after every possible thing was… Read More »

     
  • Are female race horses better?

    Almond Eye storms away from the field then under persuasion, she hangs on to impressively win the Gr 1 Dubai Turf over 1800m on Sunday morning. Everyone raved about it and yes, it was outstanding, probably even awesome. The time was good, the way she won was grand sitting 3-deep… Read More »

     
  • List: How to improve Horse Racing in Australia

    So the answer to the question: what 5 things would improve racing in Australia, rests with the answerer’s perspective. Is it a punting viewpoint he/she is coming from? Or an owners, or a trainers? As I’m an owner and a punter, I’m going to address the question from toset perspectives…. Read More »

     
  • Should we introduce match races?

    Ask yourself this: what is the one thing, the very most earnest of racing things you’d like to see happen? Keep the answer in your mind for a moment. The saga of this question begins with one of those facts that is so big and so obvious (like Uluru), that… Read More »

     
  • Should female jockeys get a weight allowance?

    Late last year in France, the governing body for horse racing, France Galop, decided to allow female riders a 2kg weight allowance EVERY time they rode in a race. This was for all females, not just apprentices, and the hope was the ladies would receive more rides. Which has happened…. Read More »

     
  • Does the All Star Mile need a name change?

    On March 16th we will see the inaugural running of the $5m All Star Mile at Flemington but unfortunately the name doesn’t truly reflect the quality of race. The name All Star Mile suggests racing fans will get to watch the best milers or thereabouts battle it out for a… Read More »

     
  • Winx would be far too good for Beauty Generation

    In Hong Kong Beauty Generation is the best race horse. He’s so good he’s a deadset national superstar. No question, and he showed it again leading all the way at Gr 1 level in super fast time at Sha Tin last weekend. Champion jockey Zac Purton regularly rides him and… Read More »
