19 August 2018 9:30 AM Waller to start Single Gaze in Chelmsford Stakes

Waller's racing manager Charlie Duckworth said she had settled in nicely. "We're happy with how she's come through her first two trials and she'll just have her last trial tomorrow and then head straight to the Chelmsford first-up over a mile, which is why we put her through three trials instead of just the two," he said. "She'll be nice and fit and ready 4

19 August 2018 9:08 AM Canberra FC set their sights on Capital Football treble

But it wasn't to be, and things went from bad to worse when Olympic’s Nik Popovich was carried off the pitch before Strika picked up a booking for an ill-fated challenge on Matthew Waters. "We went in there with a plan that Olympic had to come out and score obviously, because they needed to win to get the premiership," Macor said. "All we needed to do was just sit back and take our chances 4

18 August 2018 9:49 AM Le Romain shows he would keep them honest in The Everest

“He’s a little underrated. He’s played at the highest level for a long while and it’s good to see him get a win,” Lees said. “If the Everest happens, it happens. There are races either side. Or he could get to an Epsom.” Lees had given McDonald a lot of confidence before the race and the jockey could see what he meant a long way out. “It was easy peasy 5

18 August 2018 3:24 AM Tritton has special one in Muscle Factory after group 1 romp

Trainer Shane Tritton says horses don’t do what Muscle Factory did in the Albion Park Gold Final, but he wasn’t surprised. Muscle Factory, which Tritton bought a share of for a six-figure sum mid-season, ran a 1:53.1 mile-rate as he ran to a 37.9m victory in a show of sheer speed. It gave him a group 1 victory after placings in the the Australian Pacing 5

18 August 2018 2:00 AM Country race clubs kick in for drought relief

Racing personality Richard Callander will be at the centre of two racedays to raise funds for drought relief as racing in the bush supports their own. Callander will have $2500 to bet on each of the eight races on the Aquis Farm day at Muswellbrook on Tuesday and the TAB has guaranteed a $20,000 donation will being made. Caring and sharing: Kosciuszko 5

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 6

16 August 2018 10:32 AM Waller says Winx could still be getting better

“There’s a chance, there’s a chance that she could be better than ever,” he said. “It’s almost impossible for a horse to get better than Winx is but there is a chance. He has a keen eye for his champion and is looking for a reason she shouldn't race on. But there is no sign of that and jockey Hugh Bowman believes she is ready to make it a seventh group 5

12 August 2018 2:52 PM Cautious confidence from Dolphins coach after bold Pan Pacs showing

Jacco Verhaeren is not a man prone to statements of grandiosity. In the recent climes of Australian swimming, where potential and results haven't always worked in perfect synchronicity, the Dolphins head coach has good reason to be guarded. Yet even the contemplative Dutchman admits the wind has started to ever so gently fill the sails of the national 12

12 August 2018 8:24 AM Tuggeranong United lose but still clinch first finals spot in 15 years

"We had belief that we had a squad good enough but when you've got the monkey on your back, it comes with a lot of pressure, especially getting to the end of the season with everyone talking about it," Stevens said. "To actually get it done is a really special feeling. We've worked really hard this year and I said to the guys it didn't come down to luck or another 12

12 August 2018 4:35 AM March with the GWS Giants: Phil Davis' call

"It’s building. We trained here [on Friday] at 5pm and there must have been about 400 or 500 kids here," Cameron said. "We might have to look at our training times because we’ve been at 1pm or 2pm, and maybe the kids can’t get out of school. I remember in Launceston when I was at Hawthorn, they’d clearly have a big crowd watching training and then they get that 15000 on the Saturday 11
