Saturday racing review 14 April 2018

The Queen, Track Stars, Ones to Follow & a Star Hoop

The Queen

Winx was her brilliant self on Saturday in the Queen Elizabeth. She was last coming up to the turn and spotted some very good horses an 8-10 length head start but in true Winx fashion, she rounded them up with an air of arrogance clocking some amazing sectionals to score by nearly 4L.

It was truly breathtaking to watch - every time she runs it’s as exciting and as unbelievable as the last. It never loses its magic and we should all be in awe of how amazing an athlete she is. She heads off for a little rest now and I for one can’t wait to see her return in the Spring. 


Track Stars

Pure Elation was very good again in the Percy Sykes Stakes at Randwick. This filly is finally starting to put it all together and has won her last two in a row. She unfortunately bled from both nostrils so will now have three months off, but will be back bigger and better in the spring.


Unforgotten proved that she is a beauty, breaking the track record in the Oaks after running down a very brave Hiyaam who ensured the race was run at a fast tempo out in front. Unforgotten was too strong late and looks to be a very progressive stayer in the making. Expect a lot more wins for her to come.


Who Shot Thebarman was awesome in the Sydney Cup. The ever green 9-year-old who was excellent in the Tancred and backed it up on Saturday with a barn storming run down the outside to get it done in a head bobbing finish. It was his ninth run over two miles and his best- a true iron horse and one to savour for connections and punters.


Alizee produced one of the runs of the day in the Queen of the Turf shoot-out. Glyn Schofield knows this filly well and was so patient with her but once he asked her to go, didn’t she put them to the sword! A very good training performance by the team, the 2000m run back to the mile was a master stroke and it showed.


Ocean Knight was very impressive winning the first race at Caulfield and continues the long line of quality 2yo’s coming out of the Hayes and Dabernig stable at the moment. A very good debut from this good-looking colt. 


Ones to follow

Muswellbrook was very good in the first at Randwick. He hit the front and looked the winner for a long way but was just run down in the final stages. It was only his third race start and he will be better for it. Another win won’t be too far away.

California Turbo and Dark Dream fought out the finish in race two at Randwick and both look to have plenty of upside. California Turbo now has three wins and a third from four starts and Dark Dream has two wins and four seconds from six starts - both are well worth following with a possible Brisbane campaign on the horizon.

Savacool took her record to three wins and three seconds from six starts after a dominant win in the third race at Caulfield.  Trainer Chris Waller was pretty bullish about her future and you can expect another good run from her next time out no doubt. 


Forgive file  

Viridine was very unlucky in the fifth at Randwick after he was ridden for luck and just kept running into dead ends. Nine times out of ten a gap would open upon straightening, but it just didn’t happen for him yesterday. If clear he probably wins, so don’t jump off him just yet. 


Hats off

Daniel Moor rode the Quaddie at Caulfield, which is an amazing effort at any race track. His winners were priced at $27, $8.40, $29.50 and $11.60 with the Quaddie paying a massive $60,000. A brilliant effort by a somewhat under rated jockey who is in great form at the moment. Well done Daniel.
