20 October 2018 7:26 AM Bin Suroor gets the tactics right as Best Solution takes Caulfield Cup

It was a second Caulfield group 1 for the Bin Suroor-Cosgrave combination in the Godolphin blue after Benbatl won the Caulfield Stakes last week. Best Solution might have got into the Caulfield Cup a touch light given he had won two German group 1s at his past two starts after winning a group 2 at the Newmarket July meeting. He lumped 57.5kg to victory 5

19 October 2018 8:36 AM Invictus Prince can deliver with Harry in town

The Invictus Games will be opened on the steps of the Opera House on Saturday night, and Geoff Grimish hopes Invictus Prince will deliver on schedule earlier in the afternoon in the City Tatts Cup at Randwick. Vietnam veteran Grimish has been a big supporter of the games for injured returned soldiers and has named a series of horses in honour of the movement 5

15 October 2018 1:36 AM Could Moody have been Godophin's main man? He never got to find out

Australian horse players have become used to seeing Godolphin's English trainer Charlie Appleby come out and mop up some of the spring carnival's big prizes in recent years. But could it have been Black Caviar's trainer Peter Moody arriving on these shores every 12 months to supervise the Blue Army's raid on the lucrative Melbourne carnival? Moody revealed 7

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

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 24

13 October 2018 5:00 AM 'Father and son' land shock Kosciuszko win

He was on early favourite Victorem, which lost top billing to the heavily backed Don't Give A Damn and then lost his wheels in the Randwick wet. And that's the only reason Hyeronimus jumped on Belflyer, the Ramornie Handicap runner-up. Belflyer was one of the last horses picked up by one of the 12 slot-holders, drawn out from a raffle to scramble and pick up the best NSW bush-based 9

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 13

11 October 2018 10:47 AM Ingham has twice the interest in The Everest

“I don’t think I have ever been in a party like that before, those owners were so excited. It was a different feeling as the slot-holder but we enjoyed it. “Everyone wants to win the Melbourne Cup as owner and a couple of months later we did. It’s traditional, the Everest is new. "It might not be at the same level as the Cup but it is certainly already 15

11 October 2018 4:02 AM Freedman father and son team learning from each other

The next generation Freedman, Sam, who is looking to carry on one of racing’s more famous names, like his cousin Will at uncle Richard’s Rosehill stable, is working. Shoals has swum and Santa Ana Lane has just finished. “Good luck on Saturday,” Freedman’s old friend says as he walks off with horse in tow. Freedman has been here before, maybe not at front 11

11 October 2018 3:50 AM O'Brien sprinters to test water in two states

Saturday will, says O'Brien's Werribee-based foreman TJ Comerford, be a fork in the road for the three and will determine whether they are up to competing in group 1 company in races like the Manikato Stakes at The Valley on Cox Plate eve or in the VRC Sprint down the Flemington straight on Stakes Day at the end of the Cup week carnival. The trio were all popped 11
