21 September 2018 7:12 AM ACT Meteors slip behind WNCL eight ball

"Our bowlers did a really good job to make them bat for 46 overs but our batters have got to be accountable," Allsopp said. "They’re professional cricketers and there’s batters who aren’t doing their job. We’ve got to turn it around really quickly before Sunday. "Anna came up knowing she was going to be our No. 3. We know Anna can bat for a long time and control 4

20 September 2018 10:18 AM Seachange proved career changing for ‘The Doyler’

When a jockey has already ridden a slew of group 1 winners, enjoyed classic success and been the regular partner of a real top-liner such as European champion 1600-metre horse Kingman, it’s hardly appropriate to label his current successful season as a breakthrough year. But for top English rider James Doyle 2018 is, if not a breakthrough campaign, then one when he has really 7

“The pub is right behind us, and there are always people coming up and wishing me luck and saying they will have a slot for me. “I have spent about $1000 myself and I have an owner coming down this weekend from Queensland and he was asking how to buy tickets.” Cleary, like a number of other trainers, has pledged half his trainer’s fee from the Kosciuszko 14

At just 26-years-old, Hadley is one of the senior players at the Swifts - first appearing as a replacement player in 2012.

29 August 2018 6:51 AM Canberra horses flood nominations on Highway Handicap return

Canberra trainers have flocked back to the Highway Handicap following a 10-month ban, with nine horses nominated in the $75,000 race (1400 metres) at Randwick on Saturday. The move "saved the industry" in the capital and the trainers' reponse to their first race back proves what the event means to them, but not all will get to run. NSW horses benchmarked 32

The second outcome, Lowy said, would be for FFA and its supporters - four of the smallest state federations - to pass the working group's proposals. This is unlikely. "Under those circumstances I would not be prepared to serve as chairman beyond November," Lowy said. The third option would be for FFA and opposed stakeholders to reach a compromise on the proposals 23

The ever-changing dynamic of ACT Gridiron has paved the way for former national team coach John Ludvigson to take charge of a new club and focus on playing football, not "ironman".

10 August 2018 9:42 AM $50,000 Federal provides temporary relief for battling ACT trainers

ACT trainers don't have much to smile about at the moment but trainers Paul Jones and Barb Joseph would have thoroughly enjoyed watching race seven at Canberra on Friday. Six-year-old gelding Anthonis cruised home to win the $50,000 Federal by almost three lengths ahead of Dylan's Deeva and Motime at Thoroughbred Park. Jones and colleagues Matt Dale and Nick Olive 20
