    Racing Stewards are a peculiar bunch. We need them on race day, absolutely, no question. But do we need them to be like this? As Winx and Kiamichi were doing their wondrous things at Rosehill, a few trainers, jocks, horses, punters and officials went to Ardlethan for a day of… Read More »

    The owners of Winx – the always affable Debbie Kepitis in particular, Peter Tighe and Richard Treweeke – have ridden the media wave alongside their global phenomenon to such an extent they themselves have become celebrities.

  • 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.

  • Is Pell’s Judgement correct?

    Owners and horse names: a combination so intriguing it fascinates many. Me included. They say dog owners end up looking like their dogs, which may be true.

  • 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 »
