16 November 2018 5:16 AM 'Strikes integrity a bit': R&A called to rule on Colsaerts penalty

Australian Open organisers consulted The R&A in the middle of the night in Europe for guidance on the Colsaerts decision, which eventually cleared the Belgian of any wrongdoing.

16 November 2018 12:49 AM Canberra mountain bikers trade Switzerland for Stromlo

15 November 2018 7:50 AM Uber driver left almost bankrupt stakes Open claim

"You get sore backs [driving all the time]. You know what, it's been great. You meet really good people. [I] haven't had any bad people, which is good." Stephens was forced to rise at 4.30am – a time he could be forgiven for ferrying passengers home – to help prepare for his 6.45am tee time, but found himself bashing the snooze button a couple of times 139

13 November 2018 7:00 PM David Barlow, Craig Moller join Boomers for home qualifiers

With two wins the Boomers would lock in their place at next year’s FIBA World Cup in China and one win could also see them safely in depending on other results.

10 November 2018 7:18 AM Group 1 dream comes true for Jarrod McLean with Trap For Fools

The cumulative effect of those events was that Trap For Fools entered the Mackinnon Stakes ready to run a huge race in an attempt to land McLean his first group 1 as a trainer in his own right. "We knew he was the leader in the race and it was a matter of John [Allen] getting his clock right and cranking him up at the right time." Allen jumped from the barriers 145

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 150

“There are a couple of good ones from Godolphin in the race but I feel they will have to be good to beat her.” Widdup also has Chauffeur returning to the races again, and the entire might be facing D-day for his manhood. The four-year-old was runner-up in the Magic Million Classic a couple of years ago after being the top-priced yearling from the sales 122

But Marmelo's trainer Hugh Morrison was happy with his horse's effort after English-based gallopers ran first, second and third despite never having won the Cup before. "It's fantastic to be second in a Melbourne Cup, but to be second when you nearly won [is hard]," Morrison said. "You've got to give credit to [Cross Counter's trainer] Charlie [Appleby] 98

5 November 2018 2:00 AM The owner who will have more Cup runners than Lloyd

To most, it's almost impossible to compile a Melbourne Cup arsenal bigger than the race's most successful owner Lloyd Williams. To Rupert Legh, this year it's about to become a reality. The man who has been the very public face of the ownership group behind the stall stutters which forced Chautauqua away from the track will boast three Melbourne Cup runners 125
