  3. A grade 1 victory had eluded Regal Glory heading into the $400,000 Matriarch Stakes (G1T) Nov. 28 at Del Mar. Then she went straight to the front in the mile turf event for fillies and mares and never looked back. View the full article

  5. Just In Time Racing's Hopeful Treasure wore down the pacesetter Chateau and staved off a late charge from Green Light Go to post an 18-1 upset in the $200,000 Fall Highweight Handicap (G3) at Aqueduct Racetrack. View the full article

  7. Friday at Newbury saw the racing take place on ground described as Good to Soft. The Berkshire Novices Chase wasn't short of incident as first PIC D'ORHY fell when leading four out and then MILLER'S TALE, who looked to be in control, fired Harry Bannister into orbit two out. That left NASSALAM to come home a mile ahead of TEA CLIPPER. Was NASSALAM a fortunate winner? Probably but the object of the exercise is to jump the fences. The Long Distance Hurdle saw veteran and fan favourite PAISLEY PARK sent off head of the market to win this race again but though he raced more prominently a
  8. We'll start the weekend review in reverse order (just to see who's still with me) and start with this morning's Japan Cup at Tokyo: Japan Cup 2021: A fitting end to a superb racing career as CONTRAIL defied the odds of 3/5 and came home the winner of the Japan Cup. He was thwarted by the brilliant ALMOND EYE in this last year but he was just too good for these and goes to stud having won £8.3 million in win and place money. He's by Deep Impact (naturally) out of an unraced daughter of Unbridled's Song. On ratings, he's a couple of lb behind A SHIN HIKARI who in his da
  9. Contrail heads off to stud with an impressive victory in the Japan Cup (G1) and high expectations for his second career at Shadai Stallion Station. View the full article
  10. I actually think he's a really good horse. His last run in the UK before he headed to Aussie was super impressive and he went a great race in the Melbourne Cup. He's a pace on Flemington horse, not a sit and sprint short straight Caulfield type. That Sandown race had its stake tripled I think and was moved back a week, and moved to Caulfield to try and boost the field. It didn't work this time, but given time it is probably a good decision. There is just so much money up for grabs in Aussie now that horses can pick and choose so we are getting some pretty weak races.
  11. Horses that stick on for the Sandown (Caulfield) meeting are often slowpokes chasing some decent money against horses like Sound, who hadn't won for how long?... It couldn't even win the Auckland Cup, so Spanish Mission is a dead-set 4000m plodder who can't sit and sprint, like most stayers have to in Australia. Sydney Cup beckons...
  12. Are you looking at any particular sire or stud.
  13. Pure mate LOL yeh I did alright shoulda won it but got the stitch cos I had too many beers the night before nah Elsu was too bloody flash winnin all his heats and then the Final, even I had to cheer him for that.....hey MajesticMan needed that last night, and RobynsPlayboy was gunna be in it if he didn't break looked like he may have struck the sulky in front, it was a late watch but I enjoyed it, I mean it's the Inters man we so gotta get em back here.... Cheers Iraklis

  15. Mutamakina reeled in longshot leader Candy Flower in the waning strides of the $400,000 Long Island Stakes (G3T) Nov. 27 at Aqueduct Racetrack to give her back-to-back victories in the turf marathon. View the full article

  20. I think the Hopes have only used Blair twice for two wins. How can they take a truckload of horses to the races almost every meeting and only get the occasional win. I always put a line through their horses unless a top driver is used. Yes I know they have won 54 races this season but their UDR is only 0.21 placing them 110th on the list, yes better than M House, Some others not that flash but a little higher are M Jones and C Dalgety. Gp Blair
  21. Nz results pretty solid last night with Alta Orlando (2nd )and Triple Eight (4th) Majestic Man (1st) for Nz owners in opening round. Think 'Blacks A Fake' with his 4 grand Final wins was the best winner I saw. hard to believe his 3 starts in NZ didn't gain a win in his career. See the horse IRAKLIS was a good second at Auckland GrandFinal too . behind 'Our Sir Vancelot' (Brian Hancock) 1999 . wouldn't you of enjoyed that race more than 'Elsu' winning even ?
  22. Pink Lloyd delivered the perfect ending to his fairytale career Nov. 27 at Woodbine, charging home with a thrilling late rally to take a third edition of the CA$200,550 (US$156,780) Kennedy Road Stakes (G2) in his 38th and final start. View the full article
