  • NEW Quick Times At Final Major Inglis Breeze Up

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Ahead of the 2018 Inglis Ready2Race Sale at Riverside Stables on Monday October 1, the third and final major breeze up session was completed at Warwick Farm in Sydney on Friday where 42 horses broke the 11 second barrier. The fastest was Lot 145 (pictured), a Declaration of War x Russeting colt for Hannover Lodge which breezed in 10.34secs. Other leading breeze up times included Lot 154 (Lionheart Thoroughbreds’ Uncle Mo x Shamtastic colt) who clocked 10.37secs, while three 2YOs breezed in 10.40secs - Blake Ryan’s pair of Lot 93 (Fighting Sun x Jaguars colt) and Lot 126 (Toronado x Passion Cheval colt) and Hannover Lodge’s Lot 146, an All Too Hard x Sacha Royale colt. Of the 137 horses who have breezed at either Warwick Farm, Cranbourne or Taupo, 82 have run sub 11 second times, with the average time of all breeze ups 10.9 seconds. There is a final small breeze up session of approximately 12 horses at Warwick Farm at 9.30am on Friday 12th October for horses that have missed breezing up in the earlier sessions. To view all times from Friday’s breeze ups, as well as those from Cranbourne and Taupo, CLICK HERE. Video footage and photos from the Cranbourne and Taupo breeze ups is already available online at inglis.com.au and the Inglis iPad app. Vision and photos from today’s Warwick Farm breeze ups will be available on the Inglis website and iPad app by Monday morning, September 24.

  • NEW Chautauqua Makes The Most Of Opportunity

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    In what was widely viewed as brilliant sprinter Chautauqua’s last chance to redeem himself with officialdom, the grey galloper jumped away normally as part of a 4-horse jump-out at Flemington in Melbourne on Friday, reports AAP. Downplaying any talk of when Chautauqua would be seen next in a race, co-trainer Wayne Hawkes said the intention for now is simply to get him qualified to run again. Friday’s successful jump-out, whilst obviously very encouraging for connections, is the first step in a process that will have to be worked through before Stewards in NSW will consider the prospect of the gelding’s return to racing. First, and foremost, and assuming Victorian Stewards give their thumbs up from Chautauqua’s latest jump-out, will be a requirement for the gelding to successfully partake in an official trial at a yet to be determined date. The news will nonetheless buoy the legion of fans who are spellbound by Chautauqua's legendary finishes, an example of which is below.

  • V'landys: NSW Needs Renewed Focus on Spring

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Racing NSW chief executive Peter V'landys has discussed the possibility of expanding and enhancing Sydney's spring carnival. "There are a few things on the drawing board that I can't go in to because naturally they are confidential and we need Government support. But if it comes off, we will have a carnival in spring," V'landys told Melbourne's Radio Sport National yesterday. "We will try and work with the Victorian carnival so it doesn't interrupt it but running in the spring is so different to running in the autumn." He added: "The races at The Championships, they had the best quality that I've seen during my time in Sydney racing...[but] if you had those races in spring the turnover would be doubled what it was." V'landys said that although he would ideally like to avoid a clash between Australia's premier racing States, he has an obligation to act in the best interests of NSW racing. "We don't want to cause any grief to Victoria in relation to where we put our races but we may have to because my job is to maximise the wagering for NSW and to make sure I can return that revenue in the form of prize money," he said.
  • Extraordinary Value Among $10k and Under Sires

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    While Australia stands some of the biggest pinch-hitting stallions in the world, the degree of competition that prevails has led to a breeders' bonanza. Mixed in with a superb collection of young sires yet to have runners or represented by their early crops, are some seriously well-credentialled types in the 2018 $10,000 and Under Feature. These include sires that boast a multitude of Gr1 winners, most of them armed with equally impressive pedigrees. Click on the 2018 $10,000 and Under image below to view some of the best value stallions available at stud this year.

  • Vega Magic Thriving Ahead of Everest

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Everest contender Vega Magic trialled at Albury on Thursday as he continues his build-up to the world's richest turf race at Randwick on 13 October. Vega Magic secured his Everest slot when scoring a brilliant first-up win in the Gr3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in July. He then ran a creditable fourth in the Gr1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at the same track three weeks ago when circumstances conspired against him. Co-trainer David Hayes says the 6YO is in top order and continues to improve ahead of his primary spring target. "He has thrived," Hayes told Sky Sports Radio. "He was little bit of a victim last time out [in the Memsie]. It was five weeks between runs, up to 1400 metres, high pressure race, probably got to the front too soon, and then he just knocked up in the shadows of the post. I thought he ran a great race." Hayes added: "I'm keen to see how he performs in the blinkers again, because he will probably wear blinkers in the Everest. He probably ran a PB (personal best) in the blinkers when winning the Bletchingly. After the trial he will go back to the farm and just do his usual routine until the Everest."
  • Aylmerton On Gr1 Mission

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Meanwhile, co-trainer David Hayes has talked up the spring prospects of smart colt Aylmerton who trialled at Albury on Thursday. Aylmerton, who became the first Australian stakes winner for high-profile French sire Siyouni (Pivotal) when landing the Gr2 Todman Stakes (1200m) in Sydney in the autumn, has only been sighted once this campaign which resulted in a sixth place finish in the Gr2 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on 1 September. However, Hayes said that performance should be forgiven after the 3YO hopelessly missed the start. Now owned by a syndicate headed by Coolmore Australia, Hayes said the objective was to secure Aylmerton's future at stud by winning the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on 3 November. "I think he is a very good horse," Hayes told Sky Sports Radio. "He's only had the one start for the stable but he missed the start and was never a factor after that." Hayes added: "He will trial today [Thursday] at Albury and if he trials well he will go to Sydney for the Roman Consul Stakes on the 6th October, then it will be a month to the Coolmore which is the stallion-making race. He has been bought as a stallion prospect so if he can win the Coolmore, its job done."
  • Weir Bullish About Night's Watch

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Darren Weir is growing in confidence about the prospects of progressive stayer Night's Watch in Saturday's Gr3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield. The Naturalism is an important race for Night's Watch and many others in the race, as the winner secures ballot exempt status for next month's Caulfield Cup. Weir is hoping the Kiwi-bred has more luck than his most recent outing when third behind Magic Consol in the Gr2 Dato' Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley two weeks ago. "Probably one of our best chances of winning a race at Caulfield is Night's Watch in the Naturalism Stakes. Hopefully this can get him into the Caulfield Cup," Weir told racenet. "All I can say is that the horse is in great shape, the trip suits, the draw suits and he should get a perfect run." Weir added: "He ran well at weight-for-age at The Valley. He seemed to be mucking around in the barrier and it just worked against him in the end." Weir said a Cups campaign may come around too soon for the 5YO, but he has no doubt he possesses the requisite ability. "He might be a year away from being really ready for the big races, but he is taking the right steps, ticking along well and deserves his chance," he said. "He will run well for sure with even luck. He is in good order."
  • US Navy Flag On Way To Australia

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Everest contender US Navy Flag flew out from Ireland overnight and is scheduled to arrive at the Canterbury Quarantine Centre on Sunday. The US-bred US Navy Flag (War Front-Misty For Me, by Galileo) was confirmed as Coolmore's representative in The Everest after posting a comfortable front-running victory in the Gr1 July Cup (1200m) at Newmarket last month. "He leaves Thursday evening, Irish time, and will arrive in Sydney on Sunday," Coolmore's Tom Magnier told Sky Sports Radio yesterday. "He will probably have a couple of days walking and trotting and then we will get him going from there. But Aidan has done most of the work at home and he is pretty much ready to go, so its just a matter of ticking him over." Magnier added: "Aidan is very happy with him. He has come on a lot since his win in the July Cup. We just need a little bit of luck now and hopefully the trip goes well because it is a long journey for him." The $13 million The Everest (1200m) will be run at Royal Randwick on 13 October.

  • Import to Make Gr1 Impact

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Trainer Matt Smith has Group 1 ambitions for talented import Fierce Impact (Deep Impact-Keiai Gerbera, by Smarty Jones) who will make his seasonal reappearance in the Gow-Gates Handicap (1400m) at Rosehill on Saturday. The Japanese-bred 5YO created a good impression during his first Australian preparation in the autumn, running a slashing third on debut before posting a stylish win over 1400m at Randwick. Smith immediately spelled the promising galloper with a view to bigger races in the spring. The race Smith has earmarked as Fierce Impact's main target is the $1 million Gr1 Kennedy Mile at Flemington on 3 November. "We've just got to get his rating up and get him in there now," Smith told racingnsw.ocm.au. "I suppose 1400 metres first-up is going to be a bit of a test. But I'm sure he'll run well and he'll go to a mile two weeks after. He's improved a little bit in that he seems to be a bit more settled and overall I'm really happy with him." Smith added: "He's having a nice prep and is in good shape, I can't fault him through the preparation. I'm sure a strong mile will suit him, beyond that I'm not sure how far he'll run."
  • Daysee & Dixie Clash in Pendant

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Daysee Doom will bid to become the first horse to win the Golden Pendant twice when she contests the Gr2 fillies & mares feature at Rosehill on Saturday. The 6YO resumed with a disappointing 6th in the Gr2 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill two weeks ago, but trainer Ron Quinton put it down to pilot error. "The other day she was never going to get in then Andrew [Atkins] kept improving on her all the way and they just can’t keep going," Quinton told racingnsw.com.au. "He probably should have stayed back where he was at the beginning and he’d be back with the winner." He added: "It was a bad track and a bad run. You just have to cast that aside a bit." Quinton will also be represented by Dixie Blossoms who resumed with a fast-finishing third behind Comin' Through in the Gr2 Tramway Stakes (1400m). "We were confident she would run really well, her work had been good and her blood was really good," Quinton said. "She looked a bit wintry, she looks better in the coat again and has gone on well between runs."

  • First Irish Win for American Pharoah Team

    Weekend, 21st September 2018
    Well connected colt Old Glory got his career off to the perfect start when scoring a comfortable debut win over seven furlongs at Naas on Wednesday. By Frankel out of Belesta (Xaar), Old Glory is the first horse to race in Ireland to carry the blue and yellow colours of Zayat Stables, best known as the owners of US Triple Crown winner and Coolmore stallion American Pharoah. Old Glory was the top seller at last year's Goffs Orby Yearling Sale when purchased by Justin Zayat for €1.6 million. Trainer Aidan O'Brien said the valuable 2YO, also part-wned by Susan Magnier, Michael Tabor and Derrick Smith, would only get better with time. "I'm delighted with that, he should come forward plenty," O'Brien told Racing Post. "We might look at the Killavullan Stakes over seven furlongs at Leopardstown for him, but he'll stay much further in time."
