ACT Premier Cricket was washed out on Saturday but not before Western District-UC's Labid Mahmud scored an unbeaten 67 against Weston Creek Molonglo and Queanbeyan's Vele Dukoski took 4-18 against ANU. North Canberra-Gungahlin and Ginninderra got the most cricket in with North electing to bat and posting 9-150 from 30 overs thanks to Esam Rahman (39) and Andrew 5

16 October 2018 11:33 AM Portelli will launch new two-year-old Reign – rain, hail or shine

“The idea is to get some money in the bank for the Golden Slipper, because that is the dream with him, like his sister.” Portelli could save Ronstar for another day if the track is heavy on Saturday, but he would like to give him the chance to earn his way to Melbourne. The Zoustar gelding won his first two starts dominating from the front before just being 7

11 October 2018 4:39 AM Ryan peaks Trapeze Artist for The Everest but rain a worry

The worry for Ryan has been the rain and the heavy Randwick track that faces The Everest field on Saturday. Trapeze Artist is group 1 placed on a Randwick heavy in the Sires Produce Stakes as a two-year-old. "I know he hasn't won on heavy tracks but he ran sixth in a Slipper on a heavy 10 and third in a Sires on a heavy 8. He's not hopeless but does perform 12

11 August 2018 8:48 AM Vikings set up Royals rematch in grand final after thrashing Eagles

Royals lead the win tally 3-1 this season but Eagles coach Dan Atkins believes if Tuggeranong repeat their performance on Saturday, the premiership will be there's to lose. "It's a cliche saying but the better team won on the day and they really proved why they are the minor premiers," Atkins said. "We were on the back foot early and playing catch up from there 16

20 July 2018 6:00 AM Carnoustie harks back to age ruled by monster courses, not monster drives

The late Peter Thomson had a golfer’s eye for impending catastrophe. After the five-time British Open champion became a television commentator, he saw victory as nothing more than a flashing warning sign. When Greg Norman walked off a final green after yet another Australian title, arms aloft and wife in tow, grinning like a man who somehow knew he would 16

20 July 2018 2:30 AM Princely sum: how Geoff Grimish bought a horse off The Queen

Geoff Grimish didn’t know how to buy horses from the Queen, but he had a solid negotiating tactic. Well, at least he thought he did. He’d seen a nice middle-distance prospect he wanted to bring to Australia. It raced in her majesty’s colours, trained by Sir Michael Stoute. All the hallmarks of another European that would thrive in Australia. If only he could 19

18 July 2018 10:18 AM Relaxed Australian Open champion Davis craving his major debut

In the middle of a dry British summer, Tiger Woods summed up Carnoustie best. Having had a couple of looks at the brown, almost dusty layout which will host The Open, golf's ultimate needle man quipped "the fairways are faster than the greens". The last time the Claret Jug was on offer at a course as rain-starved as this, Woods won back in 2006. He used his driver 22

17 June 2018 8:15 AM Ainslie pay a stirring tribute to the late Scott Gibson

In years gone by Gibson would have been one of those former players cheering from the hill, which made this victory extra special for the resurgent Tricolours. "It was a pretty big day for the club, especially with the passing of Scotty," Rourke said. "He was a really much-loved former player, and after he retired he would come down every week and stand 30

31 May 2018 11:58 PM Australian Smith leads US Women's Open

Australia's Sarah Jane Smith has seized a share of the first-round lead at the US Women's Open at Shoal Creek in Alabama. The 33-year-old from the Sunshine Coast via Geelong made a brilliant closing stretch including a hole-out eagle with a wedge at the par-five 11th and further birdies from close range at the 13th, a bomb at the 14th and another nice putt at the 17th to card a five-under-par 58

19 April 2018 8:40 AM Schofield believes he will top Bowman if Le Romain wins All Aged

“He is a horse I have a good record on. I have won a couple on him and ran a couple of seconds on him as well,” Schofield said. “He has won group 1 miles but I think his style makes him an even better 1400m horse because he is a horse that can hold a high speed. “If the rain predicted comes, I think that will only bring him further into the race. I won the Canterbury 44
