    Despite the fact dual Australian Cup winner Harlem has not won this preparation, his co-trainer Tom Dabernig is adamant he is going as well as he ever has for Lindsay Park.

  • Te Akau Shark doing swimmingly ahead of George Ryder Stakes

    Biosecurity conditions will force trainer Jamie Richards to watch Te Akau Shark’s George Ryder Stakes bid from afar but the measures could favour one of the star galloper’s rivals.

    Trainer Chris Anderson has inked in winter plans for one of his star three-year-olds but is monitoring interstate travel arrangements for another.

  • Prioritise to prove statistics wrong

    Trainer Steve Tregea believes Prioritise is a perfect example of statistics not always telling the true story. Prioritise will be having his 12th start for the season when he tackles Saturday’s Open Handicap (1500m) at Eagle Farm. Prioritise finds himself in the unusual situation of carrying top weight after originally… Read More »

     
  • Tony Gollan has numbers in 3YO at Eagle Farm

    The depth of trainer Tony Gollan’s three-year-old ranks is again emphasised as he prepares four runners for the Ascot Green Handicap at Eagle Farm. The three-year-old races in Brisbane have been competitive in the off-season and Saturday’s Ascot Green (1000m) is no different. Gollan accepted with Le Palmier, Air Spirit,… Read More »

     
  • Extreme measures for jockeys to keep racing going

    A group of 25 jockeys has agreed to enhanced biosecurity measures to ensure the continuation of racing in Victoria.

  • Carpooling hoops happy to go the extra mile

    A 10-hour, one-way road trip with a rival jockey is not the Golden Slipper preparation either Hugh Bowman or Tommy Berry would choose. But Bowman figures there are worse people to spend a long-haul journey with than the affable Berry. “If you can’t get on with Tommy Berry then you’ve… Read More »

     
  • Tony Noonan chasing another Mornington feature

    Mornington Cup day is special for local trainer Tony Noonan who is hoping to rekindle some good memories when Manolo Blahniq runs in the feature sprint.

  • Mornington Cup contender Future Score allergic to grass

    Trainer Matt Cumani needs to be careful in his planning and placement of Future Score who has an allergy to grass.

  • Golden Slipper might finally fit for Hugh Bowman

    Hugh Bowman is looking to the most successful modern-day trainer in Golden Slipper history to deliver him a coveted win in the world’s richest two-year-old race.
