  • Godolphin Black Type Juveniles Out in Force

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    On a gargantuan weekend of stakes races across Australia and New Zealand this weekend, Godolphin head-trainer James Cummings saddles up what must rank as one of the largest individual stable gatherings of black-type runners carrying the same silks in Australian racing history. The presence of the ‘blue army’ and its black type foot soldiers is so omnipresent that it ranks as the equal of fielding a full team of 18 in an AFL match, with half the team made up of 2YOs. Entering the Super Saturday weekend, Godolphin’s Ingratiating (24 points; Frosted) and Anamoe (19 points; Street Boss) are the two leading colts on the Australian 2YO Black Type Premiership Leaderboard, and the stable, which already also has Arcaded (Street Boss) and Zethus (Exceed and Excel) in the Top 25 will look to add further clout in the juvenile division. Each of Alegron (Teofilo), Micro (Medaglia d’Oro) and Paulele (Dawn Aproach) is entered for the Gr2 Sires’ Produce Stakes at Flemington, while Flit’s half-sister Sliders (Street Boss), Testimonial (Medaglia d’Oro), Triffacia (I Am Invincible) and Vianello (Teofilo) are carded for Royal Randwick’s Gr2 Reisling Stakes, and the afore-mentioned Gr1 Blue Diamond-placed Anamoe (see below) appears in the Gr2 Todman Stakes. Just for good measure, on Sunday in Canberra, Bacchanalia (Exceed and Excel) will fly the flag for Godolphin in the Gr3 Black Opal Stakes.

  • Capitalist Leads Freshman Race with Seven

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Racing at Launceston on Wednesday night saw the Adam Trinder-trained Miss Tuppence (Capitalist-Starlevie, by Fasliyev) become the seventh individual first crop winner for her Newgate Farm-based sire Capitalist (Written Tycoon-Kitalpha, by Fusaichi Pegasus) with a facile 2.75-length victory over 1120m. Purchased for $70,000 at the 2020 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Supreme Thoroughbreds, Miss Tuppence was having just her second start after finishing third on debut, where she gained valuable black-type behind the unbeaten Turk Warrior (Outreach) in the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes (1200m). With six winners in Australia and one in New Zealand, Capitalist's first crop have hit the ground running, highlighted by the unbeaten Profiteer, a short-priced favourite to go three from three when he contests Saturday's Gr2 Todman Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick for trainers Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr.

  • Star's Kiku Chasing Pedigree Update

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Wednesday's 2-length victory at Warwick Farm by the Chris Waller-trained Kiku (Zoustar-Atotori, by Haradasun) for Star Thoroughbreds, could be the start of a big few days for the filly with her full-brother Zoutori lining up in Saturday's Gr1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington. Sold through the draft of Amarina Farm at the 2019 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale to Star Thoroughbreds for $300,000, the filly has now recorded two wins and four placed performances from her six starts to date, and any success by her Ellerton Zahra Racing-trained brother on Saturday, will see her residual value skyrocket. Zoutori is already a winner of seven races already including three times at Group 2 level, as well as having finished second in the Gr1 Oakleigh Plate and fourth in last year's Gr1 Newmarket Handicap behind Bivouac (Exceed and Excel). With very solid form over the track and distance, achieving seven top three performances from 11 starts, as well as having a strong second up record, the gelded 5YO Amarina graduate has every chance running a top race. Unfortunately, the duo's unraced dam is listed as having died in April 2020 while in foal to Highland Reel (Galileo), but her current yearling by Aquis' Gr1 Caulfield Guineas winner Divine Prophet (Choisir) was purchased by Australian Bloodstock earlier this year at Magic Millions Gold Coast for $80,000.
  • So You Think Australia's Busiest Sire for 2020

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Australian Stud Book data reveals that So You Think (High Chaparral-Triassic, by Tights) was Australia's busiest sire in the 2020 breeding season, reports bloodhorse.com. The Coolmore  Stud-based Group 1 winner covered 261 mares at a fee of $38,500. Next on the list was boom 2YO sire Capitalist (Written Tycoon-Kitalpha, by Fusaichi Pegasus) with 237 mares covered at $44,000 for Newgate Farm, while Swettenham Stud's Toronado (High Chaparral-Wana Doo, by Grand Slam) covered 210 mares at a fee of $27,500. Coming in fourth place was the top serving first season sire Yes Yes Yes (Rubick-Sin Sin Sin, by Fantastic Light) who covered 205 mares at a fee of $38,500 for Coolmore Stud, who stood three of the top five most popular sires in 2020, as the fifth horse was Pride of Dubai (Street Cry-Al Anood, by Danehill) who covered 202 mares. Only one other sire, Deep Field (Northern Meteor-Listen Here, by Elusive Quality), had a book of 200 mares. So You Think was one of the very best racehorses, winning 14 races, ten of those at the elite level including two WS Cox Plates and several international Group 1 races. As a sire, So You Think now has six Group 1-winning progeny in D'Argento, Inference, La Bella Diosa, Nakeeta Jen, Quick Thinker, and Sopressa, and 31 stakes-winners in total.

  • Group 1 Dreams For Sires' Produce Winner

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Demoted to Group 2 status back in 2005, the VRC Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m) has always been a strong source of quality runners with previous winners including All Too Hard (Casino Prince), Shamrocker (O'Reilly), Rostova (Tessa Rossa) and Jameka (Myboycharlie) all going on to record Group 1 success later in their careers, but last year's winner Lunar Fox (Foxwedge) will always be remembered as being the largest price winner of a Group 1 feature in history having taken out last weekend's Gr1 Australian Guineas just under 12 months after his Sires' Produce win. With odds of 300/1 on offer in the Guineas, Lunar Fox's victory saw the 3YO colt given a wildcard entry into the $5 million All Star Mile, and with connections adamant there was improvement from the colt who was only stepping out for the second start of his campaign, there could be bigger pay days on the horizon for the owners. This year's field sees 14 acceptances with a wide spread of form lines leading into the race, with only two, surprisingly, coming through the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes. Favourite is the Peter Moody-trained Lightsaber (Zoustar-Dream Cirque, by Dream Ahead), a winner of his last two starts, just ahead of Godolphin's colt Paulele (Dawn Approach-Chatoyant, by Flying Spur), a last start sixth, beaten just over 2 lengths by Home Affairs (I Am Invincible), who lines up in Saturday's Gr2 Todman Stakes at Randwick, run 50 minutes after the Sires' Produce Stakes.
  • Low Key Return for Guineas heroine Odeum

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    One of the highlight runners of the Spring, where she went from winning a Moe maiden in August to recording Group 1 success in the Thousand Guineas at Caulfield two months later (see below), the Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr-trained Odeum (Written Tycoon-Movie, by Red Ransom) resumes this weekend in the Listed Furphy Ale March Stakes (1400m) on a campaign which will target Group 1 races in Adelaide over a distance. From barrier 1, jockey Michael Walker will allow the 3YO filly to settle where comfortable in the small seven horse field, but with the remainder of the field made up of battle-hardened geldings, Odeum will not get it her own way. With a solid campaign ahead of her – it would be no surprise to see it turn into a dog fight at the end – Walker wouldn't overexert his mount with bigger plans ahead, including a possible tilt at the Gr1 WS Cox Plate in the spring if she proves she can run out a strong 2000m. Purchased by bloodstock agent Sheamus Mills from the draft of Newhaven Park Stud at the Magic Millions for $420,000, Odeum is one of 11 stakes winners this season for stallion Written Tycoon (Iglesia), with his progeny having sold extremely well this year, breaking the million dollar barrier at both the Magic Millions in January and the recent Inglis Premier Sale.

  • Hinged Proving to Be a Worthy Cause

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Unbeaten 2YO filly Hinged (Worthy Cause-Tints, by Tycoon Ruler) will be aiming to keep her record intact when she runs in the QTIS 2YO Handicap over 1300m at Eagle Farm on Saturday, reported racingqueensland.com.au. "She's a good filly but this is a big step up in class for her," trainer Michael Nolan said about the filly who is owned by retired dentist Dr Kim McCasker. "Kim breeds most of the horses he races and he bred her from Tints who won several races. She's bred to get over ground on both her sire and dam's side. If she runs well, we'll probably give her a short break and target some of the longer races in the winter." Hinged has won both her starts to date, winning on debut at Toowoomba over 1200m, then winning again at the Gold Coast over the same trip. She is from the first crop of Worthy Cause (Choisir-Tahnee Tango, by Grand Lodge) who stands at Clear Mountain Fairview, and the Gr3 Gunsynd Classic winner, who won five races in total, has already had two winners from only four 2YOs to race so far.
  • Million Dollar Flash To Debut

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Friday's meeting at Newcastle will host the debut race day outing for $1 million yearling Green Flash (Redoute's Choice-Top Cuban, by Anabaa). Trained by Chris Waller for owners Hermitage whose recent high class runners include The Autumn Sun (Redoute's Choice,) September Run (Exceed and Excel), Dragon Leap Pierro) and Rocket Spade (Pierro), 3YO colt Green Flash has had three trials to prepare for today. A half-brother to Gr3 winner Havana (Starcraft) and three-quarter to talented Listed winner Diplomatico (Snitzel), he was sold by Arrowfield Stud at the 2019 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale to Hermitage and Waller Racing. Green Flash's dam, Top Cuban (Anabaa-Super Seleccion, by Seattle Slew) was a maiden 2YO winner, and hails from an imported American family that traces to dual Gr1 winner and sire Slew City Slew (Seattle Slew). Havana won the Gr3 BTC Classic as a late 3YO, while Diplomatico showed early promise in winning the Listed Brian Cowley Stakes at his third start, displaying a big motor.

  • Busy Adelaide Cup Day Looms for Kah

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Melbourne's leading rider Jamie Kah will head to Morphettville on Monday where she has a busy book of rides, reports racingsa.com.au. Kah will ride the Anthony and Sam Freedman-trained Starcaster (Dansili-Shirocco Star, by Shirocco) in the feature race, the Gr2 TAB Adelaide Cup, having ridden the imported gelding to two wins in his last two starts including the Listed Moonee Valley Night Cup over 2500m at his most recent outing. Kah has two rides for the Tony and Calvin McEvoy stable, being Listed CS Hayes Memorial Cup runner Over Exposure (Rothesay-Show a Princess, by Show a Heart) who won this race last year with Kah aboard, and Victoria Quay (Dundeel-Swan River, by Danehill Dancer) in the Morphettville Guineas. In the Listed Matrice Stakes, Kah will ride Night Raid (Vancouver-Raid, by Pins) for the Price/Kent stable, while she will also ride Seradess (Astern-Obsidian Dragon, by Hidden Dragon) for trainer Mark Kavanagh in the Cinderella Stakes. Seradess is unbeaten having won on debut at her only start. Local trainer Michael Hickmott has engaged Kah for promising filly Echoes in Eternity (Reward for Effort-Corinella, by High Chaparral) in the Furphy Handicap. Kah, who looked a match made in heaven for enigmatic star sprinter Nature Strip (Nicconi) in the recent Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning, has been in superb form this season and leads the Black Type Premiership Jockey race from James McDonald and Damien Oliver.

  • Deep Field Colt Aimed at South African Classic

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Saturday's Gr1 South African Classic will be a sharp rise in class for 3YO colt Al Muthana (Deep Field-El Daana, by Redoute's Choice) with the Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum-owned colt having won only once in his five starts to date. Australian-born Al Muthana won on debut as a juvenile over 1160m at Turffontein and showed plenty of promise when fourth in the Gr2 Dingaans Handicap as an early 3YO. Coming off a city class fourth placing last start, the Mike de Kock-trained colt will be stepping up sharply in distance to 1800m. His dam, El Daana (Redoute's Choice), won the Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes and at stud, she's already left Al Muthana's Group 2-winning half-sister Wawail (Lonhro). De Kock's son Mathew, who trains successfully in partnership with Robbie Griffiths out of Cranbourne, will no doubt stay up to keep an eye on the Group 1 affair.
  • Beauty of A Challenge at Randwick

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    No matter what the result of the $500,000 Gr2 Challenge Stakes (100m) at Royal Randwick, it will be great to get a guide on how the up-and-coming Written Beauty (Written Tycoon-Beauty World, by Danehill Dancer), a winner of five of her six starts to date, goes up against the proven Group 1 Sprinter and Horse of the Year Nature Strip (Nicconi-Strikeline, by Desert Sun), who was super impressive in the Gr1 Lightning Stakes last time out. With a 4.5kg weigh pull and a good barrier in three, jockey Tommy Berry will get every chance to test out the ability of Written Beauty as she aims to topple Nature Strip who took victory in last year's Challenge Stakes before an absolute 2-length demolition job in the Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes at his following start. With Nature Strip currently at prohibitive odds in the market with Written Beauty on the next line, another runner given a chance in the betting is the Joe Pride-trained Eduardo (Host-Blushing, by Fantastic Light) who has a solid first up record with five top three finishes from six first up runs.

  • Purton Claws Back Huge Hong Kong Deficit

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    The deficit remains confronting, but Zac Purton breathed life into his flickering hopes of a successful jockeys’ championship defence with a stunning quintet at Happy Valley on Wednesday. Capitalising on runaway leader Joao Moreira’s suspension, Purton posted his first five-timer for the 2020/21 season, cutting Moreira’s seemingly impregnable margin to 25 after triumphing on Wood On Fire (Per Incanto), Hurry Hurry Gain (Press Statement), Ever Force (Toronado) and the John Size-pair of Wealthy Delight (Lord Kanaloa) and Wind N Grass (Lawman). It is the eighth time Purton has registered five wins at a Hong Kong meeting and the first time he has accomplished the feat since May last year. Chasing his fifth jockeys’ title, the Australian rider boosted his tally to 70 – still well adrift of Moreira (95), who is serving a two-meeting suspension for careless riding, with 37 meetings left in the season. Albeit just in theory, Purton only needs to ride one winner more than Moreira per meeting on average to draw equal with 12 meetings to go; it's Everest-like but not impossible.

  • Weekend Black Type Premiership Schedule

    Weekend, 5th March 2021
    Everything is relative; whilst 20 stakes events would ordinarily be considered a big weekend of feature racing, the 36 black-type affairs that run from Friday to Sunday will be immediately followed by another 7 on Monday in Adelaide and Canberra. The upshot is that with many of the Black Type Premiership tables tightly contested some out-of-left-field candidates, hitherto off the radar, can rapidly take advantage of the glut of points available – 500 before Monday’s races are even taken into consideration. The headline acts are the Gr1 Randwick Guineas and Gr1 Canterbury Stakes (Royal Randwick), Gr1 Newmarket Handicap and Gr1 Australian Cup (Flemington) and Gr1 NZ Derby (Ellerslie). Whilst every effort is made to ensure information and the below race times (in Australian Eastern Summer Time order) are accurate, please consult official race cards if certainty is required.
