JOSH PARR – “DREAM” TO CHASE MORE FEATURE RACE SUCCESS

RACING is built on dreams. Josh Parr has never ridden in a Magic Millions and his goal is to win a Golden Slipper Stakes. So who could blame the popular jockey if he dreams of winning both in the next few months?

SAINTLY – A HEAVENLY RACEHORSE WHO HAS GONE HOME

BART Cummings rarely started his horses at Broadmeadow if they drew poorly whenever the rail was out. The legendary late trainer was acutely aware of the reverse camber on the outside of the old course proper, and often queried Newcastle Jockey Club officials as to when they were going to “fix it”.

TOP CLASS RACEHORSES REGULARLY FEATURE MULTIPLE TIMES IN THE PLACINGS IN THE COX PLATE

Most thoroughbred devotees would regard the Cox Plate as the greatest race run in Australia each year, so I thought I’d do some deep and meaningful research and go back and check deeper into the history.

LE ROMAIN – AN EQUINE MASTERPIECE

WHAT’S in a name? Some owners don’t worry too much about naming their horses, often taking parts of the sire and dam’s name to come up with something suitable or just plucking one totally out of thin air. Others go to a lot more trouble. Such as Sydney concreting brothers Anthony and Mark Carusi.

Rosehill Garden Mounting Yard Report

The big talking point from racing all over Australia from the week end was the finish to the Kingston Town Classic for the ride of international jockey Douglas Whyte on runner up Scales Of Justice and the lack of vigour shown in the dying stages with social media exploding with criticism of the ride within moments of the horses crossing the line.

Muswellbrook Gold Cup: A Great Move To Move

Kim Waugh (pictured) trained Muswellbrook Gold Cup winner Dylan's Rojo. COUNTRY race clubs don’t always get the credit they so often deserve.ut Muswellbrook Race Club certainly deserves plenty of kudos for “having a full-blooded go” with its new Gold Cup date. The club took the bit between its teeth and switched its biggest meeting of the year away from the traditional Melbourne Cup date to a new Friday timeslot in late November.

Chris Munce, Rider of the week

HE holds the record for riding three Magic Millions 2YO Classic winners – and it should have been four. Now, he’s striving to become the first person to win the rich juvenile feature as both a jockey and a trainer. Former champion jockey Chris Munce has several youngsters gearing up for the $2m 1200m race at the Gold Coast on January 14. They include Doomben winners Ours To Keep and Champ Elect and recent Sunshine Coast winner Skate To Paris.

Munce’s three Magic Millions 2YO Classic winners were Sunblazer (1989), Excellerator (2001) and Dance Hero (2004). And he was to have partnered 1994 victor Brave Warrior, but unfortunately got injured earlier in the day and lost the mount to
