13 October 2018 5:59 AM Amphitrite adds Thousand Guineas as Darren Weir dominates

He was confident until the barrier draw, which gave him pause for thought before he decided to push on. "She was in great shape but I didn't know if any of my three fillies were good enough, but they all ran as good as they could run," Weir said. Carted into the race after settling last, jockey Craig Williams just found clear running and ran them down one by one. Weir was certain 21

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

10 October 2018 7:44 AM From pipe dream to triple threat: Lees eyes top of The Everest

If Le Romain is the horse everyone knew, Graff, a three-year-old colt, is the unknown factor in the $13 million race. Even for Lees, he was unknown in terms of The Everest a couple of months ago. He only started to think of The Everest for him after he won the San Domenico Stakes on August 25. “We knew he had come back well and that win was no surprise 11

8 October 2018 1:07 AM Canberra cycling star Michael Matthews looks for hat-trick in Italy

Canberra cycling star Michael Matthews will look to keep his winning streak going in Italy after back-to-back wins in Canada. Matthews is Team Sunweb's hope for victory if the Tre Valli Varesine comes down to a bunch sprint on Tuesday. The Netherland's Wilco Kelderman and Sam Oomen were their options in a breakaway. Matthews won both the Grand Prix Cycliste 8

6 October 2018 9:13 AM Newnham and King land Heaven-sent group 1 victory

Newnham only decided to run Maid Of Heaven during the week after she didn’t have any luck in the Flight Stakes. She vindicated the decision by becoming the second filly to beat the boys after Yankee Rose two years ago, overwhelming Aramayo late. “She didn’t have the luck last week and that was just a perfect ride,” Newnham said. “I just told her to get her out in the clear 10

6 October 2018 8:31 AM 'Thorpey has a valid point': Chalmers backs call to scrap predictions

Chalmers won five medals at his first Commonwealth Games, bagging four gold medals in the 200 metres freestyle, the 4 x 100 metres and 4 x 200 metres freestyle, the 4 x 100 metres medley relay and silver in the individual 100 metres. "It kind of frustrates me when people say [the Commonwealth Games] wasn't successful ... I'm not in it to win medals 9

5 October 2018 1:27 AM The Kosciuszko's $1.3m door has reopened for Cleary's Coolring

The $1.3 million Kosciuszko door has re-opened for Queanbeyan trainer Joe Cleary following Kopi Luwak's scratching. Cleary's hoping to get Coolring in the inaugural running of the lucrative race for country NSW trainers at Randwick on next Saturday. Goulburn trainer Danny Williams has withdrawn Kopi Luwak from The Kosciuszko (1200 metres) due to a tendon 10

4 October 2018 10:30 AM AFL draft combine snub powers Richardson to realise dream stateside

But the Dickson College student expected to feel a few nerves when he gets to the combine. Probably not as nervous as he will be when the draft rolls around on November 22, when he'll also be in the middle of his year 12 exams. "I'm very excited. I was disappointed not to make the national combine. I always thought I was a possibility to make the state 5

4 October 2018 5:13 AM Sandbar under the radar heading into the Roman Consul Stakes

Brad Widdup only has to look at Sandbar's form to feel he might be a little underrated heading into Saturday’s Roman Consul Stakes at Randwick. The winner of three races, including the Rosebud to start this campaign, has Written By, The Autumn Sun, Zousain and Graff in his form. “If you look at it in the Golden Rose, he was beaten home by the Caulfield 4

2 October 2018 7:22 AM Winx 'will make the decision' when she retires, not us, says owner

Winx is at unbackable odds to beat what will almost certainly be a smallish field of rivals on Saturday but Mrs Kepitis is right - there is no such thing as a complete certainty, even though the racing record of Winx and that other great mare who preceded her over sprint trips, Black Caviar, might suggest otherwise. Still, it will take something out of the ordinary 1
