  1. Jasmine is riding at Pukekohe.
  2. Surely they can reshedule to Friday.
  3. And don't forget Waihi Warrior is lining up in the last 6YO Bay Gelding Owner: R F Hughes, D W Looker, L R Peak, D R & Mrs K M Smith & Est late G R Edge .
  4. The track records at Ellerslie for the 1500m and 1600m are as follows: 1500m Dear John set in 1992 1:27:44 1600m Corndale set in 1993 1:32:08 Both 5yos at the time.
  5. He has pulled pin on Pukekohe tomorrow.
  6. Nothing broken. Had a sore back. Pretty lucky I thought after having watched the incident. Listed to ride at Pukekohe on Wednesday.
  7. Just a reminder that a celebration of Garry's life is happening at the Cambridge Raceway this Sunday 16th June at 1pm.
  8. 500 more Police to improve public safety | Beehive.govt.nz
  9. Sad to advise the passing of former top jockey Garry Edge following illness this morning. I think he rode around 740 winners in his career including a host of wins on Champion 3yo Piko. I went and saw Garry last Friday. R.I.P my friend.
  10. I would suspect it would have been at owner Peter South's property near Timaru.
  11. You can find everything on the Racing Integrity Board website Rev. Under decisions. R Tauranga 16 March 2024 - R5 - AQUILIFER - RIB (racingintegrityboard.org.nz)
  12. Acceptances came out yesterday for Woodville, Te Rapa and Riccarton. Fixed odds for both Te Rapa and Riccarton were put up last night. We are less than 24 hours out from Woodville tomorrow and still no fixed odds put out. Aussie races tomorrow fixed odds out. Why the delay?
  13. THUMPS WON’T TRUMP JIMMY The luckless run of late of boom horse Jimmysstar hasn’t knocked him off his path to the G1 Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane in June. His trainer Ciaron Maher, who opened his 2024 Warrnambool May carnival with a treble on Day 1, said Jimmysstar has suffered a bout of the thumps when beaten into third place at Eagle Farm over 1600 metres last week. ‘’He was a bit thumpy after the race,’’ Maher explained. ‘’I think he’s fine. I think he peaked a fraction just with a freshen up going to the mile so he’ll probably go back to the 1400m. ‘’He’ll still go to the Stradbroke if we can find a way to get him in.’’ The thumps are a hiccup-like contraction of a horse’s diaphram.
  14. Maybe we should be looking a saddlecloth numbers. Melbourne Cup Barrier Statist ics Barrier 18 was the only gate never to produce a winner since barriers came in in 1924 up until Verry Elleegant won in 2021 Since 1925 Barrier 5 has been the most successful producing eight winners; recently Green Moon (2012) and Fiorente (2013) went back-to-back from barrier 5 Prior to 2012-13 the last time the same Melbourne Cup barrier produced back-to-back winners was What A Nuisance (185) and At Talaq (1986) from barrier 17 Barrier 1 last produced a Melbourne Cup winner with Prince Of Penzance (2015) The last Melbourne Cup winner to salute from the outside barrier was Brew (2000) from 22 of 22 after two scratchings from the field Since 1983 Barriers 6, 15, 23 and 24 have not produced a Melbourne Cup winner Melbourne Cup Saddlecloth Statistics Numbers 4 and 12 are the most successful boasting 11 wins. No 4 with 12 wins – most recently Verry Elleegant (2021) No 12 with 11 wins No 1 with 11 wins – most recently Gold Trip (2022) No 6 with 10 wins – most recently Twilight Payment (2020) No 5 and No 8 with 8 wins No 2 and No 11 with 7 wins The Unluckiest Melbourne Cup saddlecloth is No. 18
  15. They don't have jumps racing down South bar the Riccarton Grand national meeting.
