New Zealand trainer Tony Pike is used to crossing the Tasman with horses but will step into new territory with Endless Drama who will be his first runner in Perth. Pike, who has had success on Australia’s eastern seaboard, is hoping Endless Drama can measure up in the west in Saturday’s Group One Winterbottom Stakes […]
Godolphin-owned Destination has staked his claim as a Golden Slipper 2020 contender after breaking his maiden at Kembla Grange.

Euphoric Summer has booked herself a ticket to the Gold Coast after a hard- fought victory in Victoria’s only right-handed race at Ballarat. Saturday’s Magic Millions 2YO Clockwise Classic guarantees the winner a start in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 11.

Red Alto has a knack of bobbing up at long odds and is again an outsider for his next assignment in the Ballarat Cup. He won the 2018 Bendigo Cup at $71 and on Saturday lines up at Ballarat over 2000m listed at the same price in early markets. Market ðŸ’°: View the odds for […]
The first horse Mark Newnham bought when he took out his trainer’s licence could also be responsible for delivering one of his biggest pay days. Newham went to $240,000 to secure Quackerjack at the 2017 Magic Millions yearling sale, a sound investment considering the horse has banked more than double that amount in prize money. […]

Australia’s longest flat race, the $300,000 Jericho Cup over 4600m, has attracted 32 nominations for its second edition at Warrnambool. The Jericho Cup was first run on the desert sands of Palestine in 1918, and the race was revived 100 years later by Victorian philanthropist and amateur war historian Bill Gibbins to commemorate Australia and […]
Despite Hang Man’s recent Group Three placing in the Bendigo Cup, trainer Mike Moroney believes his performance indicated the gelding is better suited over a slightly shorter distance. With that in mind, Hang Man drops back from 2400m to 2000m in Saturday’s $500,000 Listed Ballarat Cup and is one of two nominations in the race […]
