WHERE TO FOR WOMEN IN RACING

When Michelle Payne let fly about inequalities in the treatment of women in racing after a great Melbourne Cup win, she was quite right! And yet there is no way an argument can be made against the fact that more women in all sides of the racing industry has been a great plus for the sport.

So why was the comment necessary? And what needs to change?

CANTERBURY RACE 6 PREVIEW……by Luke Murrell

The terrific Canterbury night meetings continue and they are highlighted by the feature race being the Shooting Star which is a new initiative by racingnsw which should be applauded as this one has been a terrific success not just in betting turnover but also getting people (and importantly families) back to the track. Sponsored by Tooheys they certainly have created some good racing in recent weeks and largely having been dominated by the Kris Lees runners who have been so well placed in recent weeks.
