10 November 2018 7:02 AM Poetic justice as Santa Ana Lane sinks rivals

It was indeed poetic justice for the owners and the stable that Santa Ana Lane got the firmer surface down the straight that he had been denied in the monsoonal conditions in Sydney when he went north to contest The Everest. Like many in that race he simply could not act on the heavy ground in which the VRC Sprint Classic favourite Redzel had excelled 22

9 November 2018 4:02 AM Canberra powerlifter Liz Craven crowned new world champion

Craven has been Australia's top powerlifter for the past six years and has just won her first world championship after finishing on the podium the past two years. The 43-year-old won bronze in 2016 and silver in 2017 before her breakthrough performance in the United States last month. Craven began powerlifting after the birth of her daughter in 2011 and has risen 11

30 October 2018 11:18 AM Goodwin conjures magical double to sink Sky Blues in FFA Cup final

Goodwin had the chance to sign for Sydney in the off-season but instead returned to Adelaide, where he won the 2016 A-League grand final before a two-season stint in the Netherlands. The 26-year-old is now in his prime and could give the Socceroos an extra dimension at January's Asian Cup with his crafty left foot and his set-piece nous. The contest 11

20 October 2018 8:52 AM Coolmore calling for new colt on the block

The drama started an hour before the Coongy Cup, when the Jarrod McLean-trained Trap For Fools was scratched by stewards, then it was matched on track and with protest postscript. A dead-heat between Mask Of Time and Best Of Days in a driving finish saw Kerrin McEvoy protest against his fellow winner claiming he had layed in on him in the final 100m. "They 18

27 September 2018 6:48 AM Pierata out to fulfil Epsom dreams

Pierata has arrived at the race – Saturday’s Epsom Handicap at Randwick – that he was always going to target. It is the race his owners have dreamed of, but the road to Epsom glory has included a dead end and a few twists and turns. There was the lure of the biggest challenge of all, The Everest. But to climb that mountain would have cost up to $300,000 plus shares 20

1 September 2018 11:32 AM Caulfield wrap: Weir snares five of the best

Champion trainer Darren Weir has had plenty of big days out at Melbourne’s racetracks, but, numerically at least, he hasn’t had any better than at Caulfield yesterday when he sent out five of the nine winners. His close mate Jarrod McLean, who is Weir’s Warrnambool stable foreman, also won with one of the horses he trains in his own right. The centrepiece 37

8 July 2018 10:56 PM England main beneficiaries of set-piece goal glut

Overall, 42 percent of goals in the World Cup have come from set plays or penalties, beating the previous record of 36 percent from the 1998 World Cup and smashing the portion of goals from these situations in 2014 (27 percent), 2010 (24 percent), 2002 (29 percent) and 1994 (33 percent). This trend has powered the rise of teams that traditionally do not do well in World 28

Is boxing any longer acceptable as sport? Boxing in Australia probably peaked with Lionel Rose's world title, but that was 50 years ago this week. In the UK this week, light heavyweight Scott Westgarth died after a bout, which he won. Once, boxing was the "sweet science". Increasingly, that looks like sugar-coating. Boxing defended itself this week by saying 77

22 February 2018 7:32 AM Canberra A-League team gains traction as Capital Football throw support behind bid

He has been in regular contact with Capital Football boss Phil Brown, who supports bringing A-League action to the capital, but stopped short of committing his organisation to partnering the bid. "I'd love to see an A-League club in Canberra. Given the right conditions, yes, I believe it is sustainable," Brown said. "We've spoken to them [bid committee] 46

11 February 2018 5:03 AM Deadly gas explosion rocks Bolivian Carnival

La Paz: Six people have been killed and dozens are injured after a street vendor's gas canister exploded near the route of the world renowned folkloric Carnival in the Bolivian city of Oruro.
