News Snippets + Adelaide feature field

Here is some more news on a bust week:


*The Brisbane carnival warms up with the Victory stakes 1200m Group 2. Amongst the nominations are BUFFERING, SPIRIT OF BOOM, TEMPLE OF BOOM and READY TO RIP.


*Another nice horse nominated for the meeting is SENTA DE NOCHE from the Kris Lees stable. However Kris told Steve Hewlett today the horse is unlikely to make the trip as he would probably race in Muswellbrook the following week. It is incredible but after the BOBS bonus for that race I believe it’s only a $9000 difference in prize money from a Muswellbrook Friday race to the Brisbane metropolitan Saturday race. Why would you put the horse on the float and travel up??

(I have been informed that Senta De Noche would not be eligible for the bonus, so there has been a wire crossed somewhere, possibly my end)


*IT’S A DUNDEEL is set to take on the older horses at WFA in the Queen Elizabeth over 2000m at Randwick. We should also see MORE JOYOUS and ALL TOO HARD step out in the All-Aged stakes Group1, and the 2 year olds step up to the 1600m of the Champagne stakes. (pretty keen on one in that race so check in Friday)


*LUCKYGRAY will be moving from the west and take up residence with Robert Smerdon in Melbourne shortly.

barrier draw

*Around 10 Godolphin horses trained under Mahmood Al Zarooni have tested positive for anabolic steroids. More news to come on this but obviously a very ordinary day for Godolphin!
