There are some bloody big days on the Australian calendar. The big daddy of them all is, of course, Christmas. It’s a day for the kids but Santa’s birthday is ultimately hijacked by obsessive Grandparents who see it as a climax to a year of impulse buying at Big W. While over-the-top, the food’s pretty […]

Admire Rakti is going to have to defy history to replicate the efforts of fellow Japanese horse Delta Blues, who won the Melbourne Cup in 2006. Admire Rakti was originally only going to carry 56 kilograms, but has been slugged with the top weight in the 2014 Melbourne Cup after handicappers were unable to find […]

In the last decade or so our friends over the ditch haven’t been quite as influential during the Spring carnival as in the past.

For the past decade, the big three races Australia has to offer, the Caulfield Cup (2400m), the Cox Plate (2040m) and the Melbourne Cup (3200m), have created great interest from an international perspective given the great prestige and prize money on offer. And the international raiders have dominated in recent years thanks to the likes […]

31 international horses have nominated for this year’s Melbourne Cup and for the first time since 2010 there will be Japanese horses competing in the field.

The 2014 Melbourne Cup topweight conundrum

The 2014 Melbourne Cup topweight conundrum

by , 27 Aug 2014

It is seemingly impossible to win a Melbourne Cup with any more than 57kg, and 2014′s Melbourne Cup is unusual in that there there is no obvious topweight horse, and accordingly, no obvious favourite. This is likely to deter international trainers from sending their horses, as handicaps will be less likely to be avoided. Carrying […]

You may honour Dunaden as a star of the Australian turf, with his glorious wins in the 2011 Melbourne Cup and 2012 Caulfield Cup.

Yes, there is a link between the Melbourne Cup and last week’s events at Royal Ascot and Wimbledon. Stick with me and I’ll explain. The Ascot Gold Cup is one of the world’s great staying races. In last week’s running, two horses who did well in Fiorente’s 2013 Melbourne Cup at Flemington acquitted themselves well […]

Forget those Group 1 races in Brisbane. The best race and the best ride in Australia on Saturday were in the $100,000 Stayers Cup at Royal Randwick. The ride of the day belonged to rising apprentice Taylor Marshall, even though he ended up finishing second. What a brave second it was. Jaded punters at Moonee […]
