1 November 2018 10:28 AM Zousain more important than Roaring Lion's Breeders Cup to Qatar

“For Zousain this race means more because he needs that group 1. I very much feel this is his type of race and to match his dad’s effort would be amazing.” Widden Stud, the home of Zoustar, have already brought a share in Zousain this spring and will pay a kicker as part of the deal should he wins on Saturday. Victory would probably take his value to more than $30 million 115

1 November 2018 4:00 AM Dance sweet on Yogi's Cup chances if he can win his way into it

Flemington's Lexus Handicap is the last chance saloon for several Melbourne Cup candidates trying to force their way into the field, and leading Australian syndicator Darren Dance is hoping that he can boost the local challenge for the great race by getting his New Zealand-bred galloper Yogi into the race by winning Saturday's 2500-metre contest.

Cummings became a fourth-generation trainer to win the Victoria Derby when Prized Icon, which he prepared as a public trainer, won the race two years ago.

30 October 2018 7:42 AM Fifteen minutes of fame for locals Yucatan, Soundcheck

Yucatan seemed a good option as a name for the Domesday colt out of Folk Rock that South Australian trainer Matthew Seyers bought for $16,000 at the Adelaide yearling sales in March last year. Gary Wilks, who owns half the horse, had thrown the name forward as a nod to the sire Domesday, aware a meteorite that struck the Yucatan Peninsula about 66 million 117

30 October 2018 4:36 AM Diplomatico ready for 'awfully big jump' in class in the Coolmore

Diplomatico, a son of Snitzel, carries a prized pedigree that saw Hong Kong trainer John Moore fork out $1.7 million for him at the Inglis Easter Sale two years ago. That price tag would look cheap if he won on Saturday, as he would be chased by the major farms as a stallion. Diplomatico has been slow to mature and the Hawkes stable flew him home for his only start 98

Under the NRL’s anti-tampering regulations, Klemmer is supposed to be off limits to rival clubs until November next year. The NRL has the authority to impose a range of sanctions, starting with warnings and fines, in the rare event that a tampering offence is proven. An estimated $2 million of Newcastle’s 2019 salary cap remains unspent, and Knights 129
