EPAULETTE 56kg, BUFFERING 58kg, SIZZLING 52kg, YOUR SONG 54kg, SOLZHENITSYN 56kg and ARINOSA 52kg are some of the other notables.


I thought I would also just take a minute to run over what’s doing with some of our great supporters that help make Brissyraces what it is for the followers:

The PINEAPPLE HOTEL has some great meals deals ($10 meals and 2 for 1’s) so check out the site for more and you can sign up to be a member so you don’t miss the latest while you are there. As usual all the major sport will be shown at the Piney over the weekend and it’s a great place to head before the footy so make it your local if you’re heading out!

TATTS have got their new bet type ‘TOTAL TRIO’ up and running and you can find out more by clicking on the logo (right hand side of this page). There is also a big PICK THE MARGINS jackpot this week and only 4 games to be played. That may well be worth a look if you have a go at the footy.

The TOPLINE THOROUGHBREDS crew have a few nice horses returning from breaks and about to hit the track. There are still some % shares left in a handful of horses by ENCOSTA DE LAGO, NOT A SINGLE DOUBT, EXCEED AND EXCEL and NORTHERN METEOR that should be snapped up shortly. Check them out at

And MATT DUNN has his team ticking over nice. I believe The White Hope may be a couple of weeks of a trial and it will be good to see him hit the track again soon. Matt also has some cheap shares in some yearlings including some nice QTIS horses by the likes of NOT A SINGLE DOUBT, NICCONI and a couple of REAL SAGA’s who is turning out to be an extremely good stallion! For all the stable latest and to check out the youngsters go to


*Fields are out for Saturday and it looks to be a great days racing so don’t miss the big preview up Friday.
