A bomb threat almost put halt to the Eagle Farm return, a big money offer rejected for a potential star and an apprentice stole the spotlight at Randwick. All that and more in this weeks edition of ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ugly’.

KEY NEWS:

Bomb Hoax Delays Eagle Farm

The return to Eagle Farm on Saturday was going swimmingly after two races, but just as the horses were in the mounting yard for the third, the meeting was put on hold as police were made aware of a bomb threat, and after a thorough examination of the track, the threat was a hoax and after about an hour delay, the meeting proceeded.

Big Money Rejected For 3YO

The connections of the very promising youngster Masked Crusader earlier this week announced they knocked back of an offer over $3 Million for the three year old, who won so arrogantly recently at Randwick and is now in the spelling paddock. Managing owner Rupert Legh confirmed the news and said that if the horse is as good as what they think he is, he’ll be making sure connections made the right call.

Apprentice Steals The Show At Randwick

Louise Day spent two weeks in self isolation in order to get a start at the metro level in Sydney and the decision has paid off, with a winner on Wednesday on the Kenso track before achieving something very special in riding her first Saturday metro winner aboard Witherspoon. But to better that, she backed it up in the next race, lifting Man Of Peace over the line in a great battle with Tim Clark aboard Outrageous. Her 3kg claim will be very much an advantage during these Winter months.

PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK:

Have to go back to last Sunday and the stunning win of Almond Eye in the Victoria Mile. The manner in which she destroyed them, the time she ran, the ease of putting them away…it raised that question that we would have love to be answered: Almond Eye v Winx. But it’s great to see the champion mare back and back with a bang.

DEBUT OF THE WEEK:

It was only a maiden on the Riverside track at Wagga, and I doubt she beat much, but the debut win of Lady Brook on Thursday was very impressive. Did it from the front, looked to travel sweetly and once asked, she put them away and was dominant. She ran about 7-8 lengths quicker than the Benchmark 58 so she looks a good prospect and can win again.

RIDE OF THE WEEK:

That man again Billy Egan. Rode some peaches last Sunday at Casterton but his ride on Glass Ceiling was a beauty. Could have been a complete stuff up but he played the percentages beautifully, got the splits and under hard riding, the horse finished best. He is riding so well at the moment and a couple of his steers at Flemington on Saturday deserved a win.

SLAUGHTER OF THE WEEK:

Couldn’t find any to put in.

HORSES TO FOLLOW:

Loveseat – She’s ready for 2400m now
Miss Einstein – Bursting to win one. Touch of pilot error in not following Opacity but she’s flying
Matowi – Really good resumption off one soft trial. He’s in for a good prep
Rich Itch – 1400m next time, can win
Nobu – He’s crying out for a dry track
Desert Path – Similar to Nobu
Savvy Oak – Was okay late. Wants 2000m now and a firmer deck
Lakhani Rose – Coming winner back up in trip

ONE MORE CHANCE:

Misteed – Never really got a proper crack. Have to see her again
Nashville Sound – Similar race, similar conditions, can win soon
Starcaster – Just not a wet tracker
Bring It Home Pop – Better than that surely

NEVER EVER AGAIN:

Flinders – He is a fair dinkum donkey this guy
Mocambo – Needs to go back to Provincial grade
Southern Lad – Just not a betting prospect anymore. He’s starting to become a milk drinker
Dealmaker – Racing okay…just not winning and doubt it’ll be anytime soon
Haunted – He’s looking for the paddock
Miss Iano – Terrible from her
Enterprise Prince – Brad Stewart does ride him very well, so potentially could bet if he is back on, but gee his last couple have been terrible
So Dapper – A1 ride/run in transit. Very weak finale
Victory Stakes – That can’t be the Stradbroke form
