  • The Lion roars home in Highway Handicap

    The Lion has claimed a second Highway Handicap win to ease the pain of what should have been his third.

    Tristan De Angel has put Murwillumbah trainer Matt Dunn back on the Highway Handicap winners’ list and fuelled ambitions for the Country Championship.

The lure of the big prize on the… Read More »

     
  • Star Boy claims Highway Handicap

    Brett Cavanough isn’t sure if Star Boy is a Country Championships prospect this year despite winning the Highway Handicap at Warwick Farm.

  • Mister Smartee finally makes Rosehill

    Mister Smartee will finally get to race in Sydney, two years after Chris Waller’s plans to buy the gelding were undone by a failed veterinary examination.

  • Highway Handicap trifecta for Matthew Dunn

    Prolific Highway Handicap winner Matthew Dunn broke new ground at Randwick, nailing the trifecta the first time he had entered three runners in the race for country-trained horses.

  • Mar Nero on track for Highway Handicap

    Cameron Crockett has taken a measured approach with Mar Nero leading into the Highway Handicap at Randwick.

  • Suncraze on target for Anniversary Highway

    A horse his jockey describes as ditzy has set himself up for a big pay day by winning the Highway Handicap at Rosehill.

  • Bunny Bad Girl on the hop for Highway

    Melissa Dennett will take her first runner to Sydney for the Highway Plate at Rosehill although the fledgling Tamworth trainer is hardly venturing into the unknown.

  • Gentle Annie hits the Highway at Randwick

    Mick Miladinovic admits Gentle Annie has been fast-tracked into Highway Handicap racing amid uncertainty over the future eligibility of Canberra-trained horses.
