13 October 2018 5:59 AM Amphitrite adds Thousand Guineas as Darren Weir dominates

He was confident until the barrier draw, which gave him pause for thought before he decided to push on. "She was in great shape but I didn't know if any of my three fillies were good enough, but they all ran as good as they could run," Weir said. Carted into the race after settling last, jockey Craig Williams just found clear running and ran them down one by one. Weir was certain 19

2 October 2018 10:07 PM 2019 AFL premiership betting: West Coast sceptics still behind the eight ball

The doubt was still there as September rolled along, with even Melbourne — who the Eagles smashed by 66 points in a preliminary final — favoured more to win the flag before that clash in Perth, despite playing in their first finals series since 2006. An inaugural interstate club in the AFL, the Eagles weren't favoured to win the 2018 grand final, despite 10

2 October 2018 4:29 AM Grand final hero's game rated best finals performance ever

The Shuey score of 35.7 is based on several key statistics that measure how effective each of the 44 players afield were, with the Victorian native smashing the previous high mark set in last year's grand final by the rampaging Dustin Martin, who picked up the Norm Smith and Brownlow medals in Richmond's drought-breaking 2017. Champion Data rated Martin 11

27 September 2018 7:26 AM Former Socceroo aiming high with dive into cannabis industry

Former Socceroos winger Mark Bresciano may have lost his passion for football but he's found a new lease of life as an investor in a company that will grow medicinal cannabis. Let's be blunt; it's a move that has left him open to a few puns, with stories comparing him to Walter White from Breaking Bad, while British tabloid The Sun was quick to suggest 7

9 September 2018 8:26 PM It is Serena Williams who owes an apology to umpire Carlos Ramos

It happened at the 1987 US Open. I was the chair umpire for the fourth-round stadium court match between John McEnroe and Slobodan Zivojinovic where I issued a warning, point penalty and a game penalty against McEnroe. The game penalty, for a string of obscenities directed at me, came at 4-5, costing McEnroe the set and making the match one set all. John McEnroe 21

8 September 2018 11:13 AM Fourth time lucky as James brace gets Canberra FC home

For 78 minutes it looked like Olympic would be the champions, until James created something out of nothing from a long ball that ended up with the star forward. He beat a couple. Beat another. And then slotted it in the corner to level the scores. Not surprisingly, he was awarded the Valeri Medal as best on ground after his two strikes turned the game on its head. He admitted 25

7 September 2018 12:42 AM Sublime Serena storms into another US Open final

Serena Williams has swept past Anastasija Sevastova 6-3 6-0 and into the final of the US Open to sit one win away from a record-equalling 24th grand slam title. Williams walked off Arthur Ashe Stadium court with a wave and twirl to await the winner of the other semi-final between Japan's Naomi Osaka and American Madison Keys, who lost last year's final 20

17 August 2018 6:56 AM 'She's a hell of a horse.' Winx chases 26 as Black Caviar's connections cheer her on

On the same day Winx returns to racing aiming for her 26th consecutive win, the turf's other once in a generation galloper (yes, we've been lucky) Black Caviar will turn 12, having been born on August 18, 2006. It's a nice coincidence as the two superstars sit locked together, potentially for the last time, on 25 straight wins before Winx attempts to stretch 25

17 August 2018 12:40 AM Brett Fruend joins Queanbeyan Tigers 200 club

"I reckon the penny dropped somewhere along the way, because he turned up one pre-season and all of a sudden he was a running machine. "He’d gone from the back of the group to the front of the group in a reasonably short period of time. I’d seen him through that summer running the streets, and I reckon that became the foundation for his football, for his ability 22

4 August 2018 11:08 AM 'He'd be so good at it': Wheelchair rugby's bid to sign Alex McKinnon

“To be honest, playing wheelchair rugby is something people ask me about at every presentation I do,” said McKinnon, who suffered a serious spinal injury four years ago while playing for the Knights in an NRL match against Melbourne. “Throughout my rugby league career, I was quite selfish with the amount of time and dedication I had to put in because 32
