18 October 2018 7:05 AM Kings Will Dream from potential to Caulfield Cup favourite

Managing owner Brad Spicer welcomed a dose of reality with Kings Will Dream this spring but he expects the dream result with the Caulfield Cup favourite on Saturday. Kings Will Dream was sourced from Europe by Spicer as a country cups horse with potential. He went from potential to a hype horse after just three months of racing in Australia, as he won his first 4

18 October 2018 5:34 AM Decathlete High Bridge breaks age barrier

“He said he had a horse that I might be interested in that was going to be trained by Chris Waller,” Henderson recalled. “He told me the breeding and I thought how good is this. “Then that it had been jumping all his life and was seven. He had won National Hunt flat races, so was basically a maiden. I don’t need a seven-year-old maiden, I told him. I don’t 5

17 October 2018 6:18 AM Written By needs only a working gallop to take Blue Sapphire

It couldn't have been much easier for Written By in Wednesday’s Blue Sapphire, jumpout - lead, kick, win. There wasn’t a bead of sweat for those punters who took $1.65 as the Written Tycoon colt controlled and dominated. The time for the Caulfield 1200m didn’t test the records, but it didn’t have to. “I couldn’t believe they left him alone in front 5

15 October 2018 12:31 AM Canberra teen Keely Small wins gold at the Youth Olympics

“It hasn’t sunk in quite yet. This whole experience has been amazing, to be announced flagbearer and now see the Australian flag raised from on top of the podium with a gold medal – I’m so stoked.” Small said the crowd support, from a vocal Australian minority and the local crowd appreciating her dominating performance, spurred her to the top place on the dais. “I was a little 6

14 October 2018 9:59 AM Let’s hope The Autumn Sun gets a chance to test Winx

The Autumn Sun left most at Caulfield on Saturday convinced the colt would be a worthy rival for champion mare Winx in the Cox Plate at Moonee Valley on Saturday week. I have been at about the past 40 Caulfield Guineas, a race that has produced some outstanding horses, and The Autumn Sun was just as good, if not more impressive, than the more recent 19

14 October 2018 8:04 AM Marc Leishman nails fourth US PGA tour win

Marc Leishman was already having a good year. Yesterday in Kuala Lumpur, he made it a great one. The 34-year-old from Warrnambool secured his fourth United States PGA Tour title with a superb exhibition of ball-striking and putting in the $US7 million CIMB Classic at TPC Kuala Lumpur. The victory comes with a winner’s cheque of $US1.26 million but just as importantly 24

13 October 2018 8:18 AM The Autumn Sun shines bright in the spring

The clamour began after that win at Rosehill for him to be sent south to take on his illustrious stablemate Winx in the Cox Plate, with many good judges opining that the youngster, with the weight allowances afforded to three-year-olds in the weight-for-age championship, might be the only horse who could threaten her. Those calls will invariably grow louder 22

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

11 October 2018 11:32 AM Latrobe could be better than Cup winner Rekindling: Williams

The only fly in the ointment for Latrobe is that he needs a travelling companion to keep him focused and comfortable in his time away from his Irish base. The Williams camp is hoping that another O'Brien horse, Master of Reality, will be able to accompany him in quarantine, but if not arrangements could be made for another foreign horse based at Werribee 11

11 October 2018 7:31 AM How half hour with Arnold made Boyle switch national allegiance

He has never been to Australia before, doesn't yet know the national anthem but Scottish-born winger Martin Boyle says he is committed to the "great honour" of playing international football for the Socceroos. The 25-year-old former Scotland youth international will turn down any future chance of representing his home country and has pledged his future 12
