Opinion

  • 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 »

     
  • The $5m ‘Not So All Star’ Mile

    The current $5 All Star Mile vote leader and one of the key horses in markets is unlikely to line-up in the inaugural event which has put further pressure on the quality the race is set to attract. The Chris Waller trained The Autumn Sun who currently leads $5m All… Read More »

     
  • Eagle Farm to host Deja Vu race?

    As a boy growing up in the racing industry, many things appealed to my imagination. One of them was this:  what would happen if a field one week, backed up and all raced again 2 weeks later? Would we get the same result? Would class shine through? Well, with the re-opening… Read More »

     
  • Could the unthinkable name clash happen?

    The chances of Yucatan racing against Yucatan increased a fair bit yesterday, although still unlikely. And as it did, race caller Terry McAuliffe made a faux pas that raised eyebrows. In short, the Aussie-bred Yucactan (Domesday-Folk Rock) strolled in at Strathalbyn in Adelaide, winning as he liked by nearly 4 lengths… Read More »

     
  • Racing NSW winning the war against Racing Victoria

    Racing NSW CEO Peter V’landys must get out of bed and just give thanks every day. Because everything he and his Board seem to rubber stamp comes up trumps, while conversely, Racing Victoria keeps getting slammed. Regumate being the latest. Until Racing Victoria sees fit to recognise that fillies and… Read More »

     
  • Ric Chapman’s stars of the future

    Potential. We see and hear about it all the time in horse racing. From pub talk to racing experts raising their eyebrows as they speak like they know, they alone see the future saying such prose as – “Oh this horse has the potential to be anything.” And this, “He’s… Read More »

     
  • Kementari taking on Winx a wise bet for Godolphin

    Boom colt Kementari could be set to take on Champion mare Winx in this weekends Group One Winx Stakes at Randwick. Godolphin have opted to make Kementari a late nomination for the first Group One of the new season which would see their prized colt line-up against Champion mare Winx… Read More »

     
  • Good Friday Racing – A missed opportunity?

    Good Friday and Christmas day have long been the two race-free days on the Australian calendar, at least that was the case up until just last year when Western Australia decided to break the trend and stage an 8-race-card at Ascot on Good Friday. Have Your Say 🗣: Should we have… Read More »
