15 November 2018 8:42 AM 'Legs like jelly': Davis' Open defence stalls after nervous start

"I was trying really hard, probably a little bit too hard. I was a little bit nervous obviously. As soon as I heard my name on the first tee the legs were a little bit like jelly and I tried a little too hard probably.

It was indeed poetic justice for the owners and the stable that Santa Ana Lane got the firmer surface down the straight that he had been denied in the monsoonal conditions in Sydney when he went north to contest The Everest. Like many in that race he simply could not act on the heavy ground in which the VRC Sprint Classic favourite Redzel had excelled 150

But Koukash has put his money where his mouth is and paid more than $125,000 to continue his quest for the Melbourne Cup. It started with Mount Athos, which ran third and fifth in the race that stops the nation. That is actually more than Koukash paid for Magic Circle, a $10 second favourite for Tuesday's edition. “I do think that the guy has balls to send his horse 120

24 October 2018 3:37 AM Ryan's night star Destiny's Own looks to light up Canterbury again

“In between those two wins he ran third to a horse called Unforgotten, so he was running in some pretty good ones,” Ryan said. “He likes Canterbury and this is a race we have been looking at for a while.” Destiny’s Own runs in the same colours as Trapeze Artist and has been placed at Rosehill and Warwick Farm since returning from his long break 91

"The Netherlands stuff never really got moving, it was something that was a possibility if I ever wanted to go down that line, but it was a bit of a long shot with it being a few generations back in my family," Dwarshuis said. "I put that on the backburner and I’m certainly focusing more on the Australian side now. I was very excited to be a part of that Twenty 102

20 October 2018 2:44 AM Gurinder Sandhu ready to bust through another barrier

If that hadn't happened, he might not have been in the position to replicate those heroics against the fourth-best one-day outfit in the world - but it did. "I’ll be looking forward to that game and it’ll be a nice little test to see where I’m at. I’ve played two of them before so it’s almost kind of a checkpoint game to see where you’re at and what you need to work on, and how much more improvement 106
