It was his second straight victory after saluting at the same track on Melbourne Cup Day almost two weeks ago. "It's been a long road with this horse. He's had a lot of injuries and it looked like being the best horse I ever trained, but unfortunately he had a few injuries and it's taken a lot of work to get him back to the races," Pepper said.

18 November 2018 8:46 AM Papadatos rebounds from four-putt to earn Royal Portrush dream start

Four isn’t an ugly number in golf, except on the green. For Dimi Papadatos, the four putts he took at the 14th hole at The Lakes on Sunday could have derailed not one but two major golfing dreams. It crushed what little chance he had of chasing down runaway winner Abraham Ancer. But little did Papadatos know, his response would lead him to Royal Portrush 4

"I’m trying to stick to the positives, which is the fact I am getting started and being consistent in a lot of innings."

17 November 2018 6:45 AM Hole-in-one hero An falls back to earth – with a thump

Around the same time that Cameron Percy was hitting bogeys on the third and fourth holes, a horse he part-owns, Yogi, was saluting in the $150,000 Sandown Cup. Still on the nags, John Walter, who manages top Sydney jockeys Josh Parr and Tim Clark, caddied for Aaron Pike. That's the reason Pike planned on spending the afternoon with a few beers and backing 7

"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 7

11 November 2018 6:36 AM Erin Burns spearheads ACT Meteors victory

The ACT will have it all to play for against the NSW Breakers and South Australia in the final round of the regular season in February. Burns laughs she will be taking plenty of mental notes when she links up with a host of NSW players in the Sixers squad this week for the WBBL, but for now she just wants to savour a clean sweep on home turf. She has well and truly 8

It wasn’t until the second term the Firebirds were able to get on the board thanks to perennial scorer James Thornhill who added his 23rd touchdown of the season with a bombarding run up the middle. Man of the match Shaquille Garner added the second with a great catch and run for 60 yards to make it 14-0. The Centurions got on the board thanks to a wayward 9

10 November 2018 5:52 AM Kenedna comes out of retirement to land Weir a treble

Darren Weir was poking around his farm in Maldon when he spotted a horse with a good action who looked fit and well. Upon further investigation he discovered the horse was Kenedna, a talented mare that had been sent to the farm to spell before heading to the breeding barn. "She was a great three-year-old who was unlucky not to win a group one," Weir said. His mind slipped 14

9 November 2018 10:44 AM Heavyweights collide as Smith-Warner square off at Coogee Oval

But the presence of Smith and Warner in Sydney grade cricket has been a welcome shot of vitality for the lower tiers of cricket, which rarely see the likes of Warner and Smith, who have both found a way to embrace the upside of their exile. "I can’t remember two current players that have been captain and vice-captain of their country, still playing the game, and playing 5
