  • Godolphin Green Lights Trekking for Everest

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    It took until late Sunday morning for Godolphin to give the all-clear for Trekking (Street Cry) to take advantage of his The Everest win-and-you’re-in Gr2 Schillaci Stakes (1100m) victory. The 5YO gelding did not have to accept the automatic Everest entry, which would then have fallen to fellow Schillaci competitors in finishing order, however after saying they would consider the situation overnight – a nice problem to have – Godolphin now goes into the race boasting two chances. With star mare Alizee already confirmed for the $14 million race in Godolphin’s slot, Gr1 winner Trekking adds another really interesting dimension to the 1200m Royal Randwick sprint on Saturday where he will take on the crème of the country’s sprinters. Josh Parr, who rode Shadow Hero to victory in last weekend’s Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes at Royal Randwick, has been given the ride on Trekking who is a $21 chance.

  • Big Weekend for Darley’s Medaglia d’Oro

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    Former Darley shutler Medaglia d’Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) celebrated a dual hemisphere Gr1 double over the weekend. In addition to the last gasp victory by favoured 3YO filly Flit (Medaglia d’Oro-Glissade, by Redoute’s Choice) in the Gr1 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield (1600m), in Keeneland’s Gr1 Queen Elizabeth Challenge Cup Stakes (approx 1700m) in the US, fellow 3YO daughter Cambier Parc also won. Out of the Point Given mare Sealy Hill, the US$1.25 million Keeneland September graduate is also the winner of the Gr1 Del Mar Oaks in California. A descendant of 3-time Gr1 winner John’s Hope (Alled-Aged, Doncaster and Raily Handicap), Flit’s Gr3 Blue Diamond (F)-placed dam Glissade is a daughter of Zabeel’s Gr3 AJC Breeders Plate winner Steflara which should work in her favour over longer distances.
  • Munz on The Money on Guineas Day

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    Trainer Anthony Freedman had one goal with Inglis Easter star Super Seth at the start of this preparation – to win a stallion-making race with him. Problem was, according to inglis.com.au, he wasn’t sure which one to target. “I wasn’t always convinced he’d run a mile to be honest and being a colt, the goal was to always win one of these (stallion-making races) with him so I thought the Coolmore might be the aim,’’ Freedman said. “But he showed us enough to go in this direction and he’s proven himself today.’’ Super Seth (Dundeel) came from an impossible position to win the G1 Caulfield Guineas in the final stride, announcing himself not only a star 3YO middle-distance galloper but a valuable stallion-in-waiting. His win formed part of an extraordinary day for owner and breeder Jonathan Munz, who not only races Super Seth and third-place getter Groundswell but also the Gr1 Thousand Guineas third-place getter Southbank. Super Seth and Groundswell (Fastnet Rock) were both part of the Arrowfield Stud draft at the inaugural Australian Easter Yearling Sale at Riverside Stables last year. Dean Hawthorne bought Super Seth  – who becomes Dundeel’s fourth G1 winner - for a syndicate that includes Munz and a number of other partners, from Arrowfield for $280,000.

  • Tavistock Colt Tops Final MM 2YO Breeze Up

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    The scene is set for this week's Magic Millions Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale following a successful breeze up session at the Gold Coast Turf Club on Friday morning. Almost 70 two-year-olds breezed at the session and the quickest across the morning was a Tavistock colt, catalogued as Lot 203. The colt, to be offered by Baramul Stud, is the third foal of a 6-time winning and well related Pins mare and he stopped the clock in 10.68 seconds. A Rubick colt from Symphony Lodge (Lot 173) looked sharp in his breeze, clocking 10.74 seconds. Three other members of the Baramul Stud draft rounded out the day's top five times - with colts by All Too Hard (Lot 101, 10.75 secs), Pluck (Lot 163, 10.75 secs) and More Than Ready (Lot 184, 10.76 secs). The More Than Ready colt from Gr1 winner Allez Wonder is a brother to recent stakes-winner and Saturday’s Randwick group runner Kooweerup. All juveniles reportedly handled their breeze ups in great style, and the efforts were impressive considering they ran into a head wind. To view the breeze up times, video clips and photos and more click here. All breeze up clips from today's session are already online. Day-1 of the 2019 Gold Coast 2YOs in Training Sale will commence at 5pm (Qld time) today and continue with Day-2 on Tuesday from 11am (Qld time). The Spring Racehorse Sale will follow.

  • Bart Wins Second NZB Caulfield WFA Title

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    A close second placing in Saturday’s A$1 million Ladbrokes Caulfield Stakes (2000m) has confirmed Black Heart Bart (Blackfriars) as a two-time winner of the New Zealand Bloodstock Caulfield WFA Championship. The outstanding galloper won his first NZB Caulfield WFA Championship title in the spring of 2016, when he was at the peak of his powers and won the Gr1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) and Underwood Stakes (1800m). He also won the Gr1 Goodwood Handicap (1200m) in 2016, and the following year added the Gr1 C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) and Futurity Stakes (1400m). But the Futurity Stakes was his last win for more than two years, and he was virtually retired in the spring of 2018. Now a 9YO, he has made a remarkable comeback during the 2019 NZB Caulfield WFA Championship, winning the Underwood Stakes (1800m) at 100-1 odds and following it up with a gallant second in Saturday’s Caulfield Stakes, where he was highly backable. The Lindsey Smith-trained evergreen marvel finishes with a total of 19 points, five clear of Hartnell (Authorized). Mystic Journey (Needs Further), Scales of Justice (Not a Single Doubt) and the Caulfield Stakes winner Cape of Good Hope (Galileo) tie for third with 10 points each.
  • Caulfield Stakes Winner Boosts Stud Value

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    Meanwhile, Saturday’s determined victory by blueblood Cape of Good Hope (Galileo-Hveger, by Danehill) in the final leg of the NZB Caulfield WFA championship, the Caulfield Stakes, greatly enhanced his value with a first Gr1 victory. Recently purchased by senior co-trainer David Hayes, the son of Galileo has outstanding pedigree credentials, being a full-brother to the multiple Gr1 winner Highland Reel and the Gr1 performer Idaho. The trio’s Gr1-placed dam Hveger, a full-sister to dual hemisphere Gr1 winner Elvstroem and a half-sister to Gr1 winner Haradasun, was exported to Ireland. “I wish I had a bit more of a share in him now,” Hayes said. "We kept him really lightly trained when he arrived at Werribee, because he was a big investment. It’s fantastic.” Hayes added, “He’s got one of the better pedigrees in the world. Now that he’s a Gr1 winner, by the best sire in the world and from one of the best female families, we’ve really got something to work with in terms of a possible stallion career.” Cape of Good Hope, who will now head towards the Gr1 Cox Plate, won the final leg of what is the ninth year of New Zealand Bloodstock sponsorship of the Caulfield WFA Championship.

  • Chosen One Ready For Saturday's Task

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    Following the stunning Gr2 victory by The Chosen One at Caulfield on Saturday afternoon, co-trainer Murray Baker is already thinking ahead to next weekend where his charge will try to pull off an even greater triumph. Baker, who prepares the Savabeel 4YO in partnership with Andrew Forsman, has his sights firmly set on taking out his second Gr1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) after success with Mongolian Khan in 2015. The Chosen One gained automatic entry into the Caulfield feature with his victory in the Gr2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) with Baker reporting his charge had pulled up in fine fettle after the performance. “I stopped in and saw him at the stables on my way to the airport and he looks great,” Baker said. “I think the most pleasing part of Saturday’s race was the way he attacked the line and was strong at the finish.” Baker thinks that with his light weight (52kg) he looks to have a good chance in the Caulfield Cup where he’ll be ridden by Stephen Baster.

  • Nick Columb Statue Project Launched At Caulfield

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    There is surely no better place to launch a project honouring leading owner, owners’ advocate, bloodstock consultant & buyer Nick Columb than Caulfield, the scene of many of his most important victories. Those victories included two Caulfield Cups (Tristarc & Imposera), the Caulfield & Underwood Stakes (Tristarc), Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes & Toorak Handicap (Magari), St George Stakes (My Brown Jug) & the Blue Diamond Stakes (Courtza). Nick’s long-time friends Tony Cavanagh and John Messara were at Caulfield on Saturday to talk about the project to create a statue of Nick, who died suddenly last August, and to introduce the sculptor Linda Klarfeld. Tony Cavanagh commented, “Nick was a once-in-a-lifetime character, a family friend and godfather to my son Daniel, and a major client of mine in the 1980s and 1990s. He had a notable impact on racing as a highly successful owner, an indefatigable campaigner for owners in Victoria and throughout Australia, and finally as a buyer and bloodstock consultant for the Hong Kong Jockey Club. But most of all, he was a larger-than-life personality who inspired, entertained and yes, occasionally argued with his many friends and admirers who want to make sure he is not forgotten.” John Messara said, “Nick’s death has left a large space in the world that won’t be filled, but we can make sure he’s remembered with the affection and gratitude we felt for him in life. I’m pleased to join Tony, Bruce Wilson, the Columb family and other friends to support  the project to create a statue of him, and give it a special place at Arrowfield Stud.” Linda Klarfeld is a highly regarded Australian artist specialising in figurative sculpture whose public work includes statues of pioneering cardiac surgeon Dr Victor Chang, St Mary McKillop & St John Paul II, cricketers Keith Miller & Bill Woodfull and AFL footballer Neil Roberts. Those wishing to assist with the funding of this project are invited to contact Tony Cavanagh M: 0413 875 200 or E: anthonycavanagh@bigpond.com

  • Bivouac Restricted to Own Age for Now

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    Godolphin’s announcement late on Thursday confirming Alize as its The Everest representative meant that Gr1 Golden Rose-winning 3YO Bivouac unfortunately misses out. Godolphin Australia CEO Vin Cox, knowing that a lot of racing enthusiasts would have liked to see the Exced and Excel colt compete, provided context for the decision to reserve him for races against his own age group for the immediate future. “We feel that a colt like Bivouac has the opportunity to win a variety of G1 races which he will now be aimed at,” said Cox. Bivouac produced an outstanding performance against his own age to win the Gr1 Golden Rose at his most recent appearance, and his major spring target will now be the Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington next month.

  • Cambridge Stud Invests in UK Gr1-Winning Colt

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    Brendan and Jo Lindsay’s Cambridge Stud has joined forces with some of the major players in the global racing and breeding scene to purchase Gr1-winning 3YO colt, Hello Youmzain, reports NZ Racing Desk. A partnership between Haras D’Etreham, Cambridge Stud and SF Bloodstock have purchased the son of Kodiac from his owner, Jaber Abdullah, to race on next year with his current trainer Kevin Ryan. The partnership are also the principal owners of European Champion Almanzor, who stands at Haras d’Etreham and Cambridge Stud. Hello Youmzain recently won the Gr1 Haydock Sprint Cup (1200m) and, prior to that, ran a game third to Advertise in the Gr1 Commonwealth Cup (1200m) at Royal Ascot. Also a Gr2-winning juvenile and winner of 4 of his 7 starts, Hello Youmzain has been purchased principally with 2020 in-mind, where it is expected he will take part in the key Gr1 sprints – the Diamond Jubilee Stakes (1200m), July Cup (1200m) and possibly a return to Haydock in September. Hello Youmzain is by the prolific sire, Kodiac, a three-quarter brother to Invincible Spirit by Danehill, who stands at Tally Ho Stud in Ireland for €65,000. “The key elements in his pedigree are those stallions - Danehill, Invincible Spirit and Shamardal, all of whom have had a massive influence on the Australasian bloodstock industry in recent years,” Cambridge Stud CEO Henry Plumptre said. “Coupled with his performance, which has earned him a Timeform rating of 124, he is a great physical which is critically important in the Southern Hemisphere." Hello Youmzain will take his place in the Gr1 Qipco British Champions Sprint Stakes (1200m) at Ascot next week and will be ridden by James Doyle, who partnered him to victory at Haydock. He will race alternately in the colours of Haras d’Etreham and Cambridge Stud.

  • Khallid Abdullah Has Another Emerging Star

    Monday, 14th October 2019
    Juddmonte Farms principal Khalid Abdullah, whose wonderful mare Enable is closing in on the end of her career, appears to have another one out of the box. A daughter of Juddmonte’s undefeated world champion racehorse Frankel, 2YO filly Quadrilateral has survived a tough assignment in the UK to win Newmarket’s Gr1 Fillies Mile. Supplemented for £40,000 pounds after winning her first two starts, Quadrilateral appeared beaten going through the furlong marker, however rallied strongly for trainer Roger Charlton to deny Powerful Breeze (also supplemented) and Ballydoyle’s filly Love. Now favourite for next year’s Gr1 1000 Guineas, Quadrilateral’s Mizzen Mast dam is a half-sister to the dam of Arrowfield Stud’s Gr1 Golden Rose runner-up and young stallion Scissor Kick. It is the immediate family of the incomparable broodmare Hasili.

    At Caulfield in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's super-exciting young sire Dundeel (High Chaparral-Stareel, by Zabeel) added a big Gr1 triumph to his burgeoning resumé when his talented 3YO entire-son Super Seth (Dundee-Salutations, by Redoute's Choice) came from the clouds to just nail the sail-away leader Alligator Blood by a nostril in the $2,000,000 Gr1 Caulfield Guineas, with stablemate Groundswell 2.35-lengths away in third. In what was the third Gr1 race of the day decided by the narrowest of margins, it was also a second Gr1 in a row on the card for jubilant jockey Mark Zahra who commented returning to scale, "I just lost my spot around the bend but when I finally got him to balance and level out geez he let rip." He added, "He's still learning so the sky's the limit." A half-brother to dual Listed winner Wild Planet, Super Seth took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr3 HDF McNeil Stakes) and 1 placing (Listed ANZAC Day Stakes) from 7 starts for $1,407,600 in earnings and no doubt a lofty stud offer at some point soon.

    At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Coolmore's Champion First & Second Season Sire Pierro (Lonhro-Miss Right Note, by Daylami) celebrated a Gr1 triumph when 3YO gelding Shadow Hero (Pierro-Sookie, by Casino Prince) came with a barnstorming final two furlongs after settling mid-field to just outstay the late-closing Castelvecchio by 1-length in the $1,000,000 Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes for 3YOs. The on-pace Battenburg hung-on bravely for third a further 0.1-length away. The prestigious victory took Shadow Hero's record to 3 wins (including the Listed The Phoenix Stakes & Gr3 Gloaming Stakes) and 2 placings (including the Listed Dulcify Stakes) for $809,100 in earnings. In what was the second Spring Champion Stakes in succession for trainer Mark Newnham, he commented post race, "It's pretty special. I've thought for the last three months that this is the race for him and it's just terrific that the plan's come together. He's a real staying talent." With an iron grip on Gr1 Victoria Derby betting, Shadow Hero's grand-dam is none other than dual Gr1-winning Champion 2YO Filly Victory Vein.

    At Caulfield in Melbourne, Darley shuttler Medaglia D'Oro (El Prado-Cappucino Bay, by Bailjumper) celebrated an elite victory when Flit (Medaglia d'Oro-Glissade, by Redoute's Choice) stretched out late to capture the $1,000,000 Gr1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) for 3YO fillies. In what was a thrilling three-way finish that saw Missile Mantra denied by the barest 0.1-length margin and defiant leader Southbank a mere 0.1-length further back, Flit tracked the highly-rated Lyre throughout before finding a gap a furlong from home and charging. Champion hoop Hugh Bowman observed post race that he had anticipated Flit would sprint more decisively but that "the pace really poured on at the 400 and [he] had to wait for that pace to go” before he could move. He added that "it just left [Flit] a bit flat-footed." In an ominous warning though heading toward a potential VRC Oaks tilt later in the Spring, Bowman enthused, "My word, she was strong late. I think if it was a genuinely run event, she would have won very comfortably." Flit took her record to 2 wins (including the Gr3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr2 Percy Sykes Stakes and Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes)for $899,440 in earnings.

    At Caulfield in Melbourne, Champion Coolmore stalwart Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added yet another Gr1 win to his mountainous Gr1 haul when exciting 4YO imported entire Cape Of Good Hope (Galileo-Hveger, by Danehill) powered home to swamp the always game 9YO gelding Black Heart Bart and take out the $1,000,000 WFA Caulfield Stakes (2000m) by 0.1 length. The winner's stablemate Harlem was 1.6-lengths aways in third. Trainer David Hayes glowed post race, "Fantastic. We've never been happier with a horse coming through. He looks like a true weight for age horse. We copied the Criterion program and it paid off again." Hayes noted that he had kept the import's training light while quarantining at Werribee and will maintain the same regime heading into a likely start in the Gr1 Cox Plate. Hayes commented, "He's got probably one of the better pedigrees in the world so we thought the Cox Plate and the [Gr1] Mackinnon [Stakes] were his two main aims and this was a nice warm-up race." Cape Of Good Hope took his record to 3 wins (including the Listed Epsom Blue Riband Trial) and 3 placings (including the Gr2 Newmarket Superlative Stakes, Gr2 Newmarket Royal Lodge Stakes and Listed Saratoga Derby) from 11 starts for $1,002,954 in earnings.

    At Caulfield in Melbourne, Shadai Stallion Stations' recently deceased Champion Sire Deep Impact (Sunday Silence-Wind In Her Hair, by Alzao) captured a posthumous Gr1 victory when 6YO entire Fierce Impact maintained a powerful gallop to the line to win the $500,000 Gr1 Toorak Handicap. 6YO gelding Night's Watch emerged late and ran on nicely to finish 1.75-lengths adrift with 4YO gelding Age of Chivalry in third some 2.75 lengths from the winner. The brother to Gr1 Tokyo NHK Mile Cup winner Keitai Nautique took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr3 Summer Cup) and 8 placings (including the Listed Goodwood Cocked Hat Stakes, Listed Scone Cup & Gr3 Bill Ritchie Handicap) for $613,980 in earnings. Winning jockey Craig Williams was satisfied post race, saying, "Credit to this horse. He's now commercial. His trainer and his staff have just been so patient with him. The form got franked by the Epsom winner last week." He added, "He was awesome. He was very dominant today in his win."
