Darren Weir exercises a bit of Backbone and doesn’t waste time in trainers’ premiership defence   Leave a comment

Darren Weir exercises a bit of Backbone and doesn’t waste time in trainers’ premiership defence

IT took just three city races for Darren Weir to kick off his Melbourne trainers’ premiership defence when recent stable addition Backbone won the Melbourne Signage Concepts Handicap (2500m).

Last season Weir won his first Melbourne premiership with 86 winners and also won the Australian trainers’ premiership with 253 winners, but is making no bold predictions for this season.

“There’s no targets other than to keep training winners,” Weir said.

Weir didn’t have any concerns with Backbone as he always had the race under his control with Ben Melham placing him in fifth spot behind the fast speed.

SYDNEY’S premier trainer Chris Waller made an early season statement when He’s Your Man led home a stable trifecta in the Listed $100,000 Winter Challenge (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens.

The first stakes race of the new season produced another demonstration of Waller’s dominance and underlined why he is at unbackable odds to win his fifth successive trainers premiership as He’s Your Man defeated stablemates I’m Imposing and Coup Ay Tee.

ROBBIE Laing will spell his boom sprinter Lord Of The Sky after he failed as an odds-on favourite for the second successive Saturday at Moonee Valley.

Laing said Lord Of The Sky raced a bit flat and he believes the Sir John Monash Stakes win three starts ago at Caulfield took more out of him then he expected.

“When he wins it looks easy but he really exerts himself. It might have taken more out of him than I thought,” Laing said referring to the Sir John Monash Stakes win.

Laing said Lord Of The Sky had been in his stables for a year and would benefit from a spell.

Racing world saddles up for fallen jockeys   Leave a comment

Racing world saddles up for fallen jockeys

Racing Writer
Melbourne

THE group of horses moved along the side of the track while on top of them in multi-coloured silks, the jockeys wrestled their charges and held up for the run to the finish.

In the blink of an eye, the rhythm of the pack is disrupted and the formation of the group is broken.

As the race was ready to come alive with challenges and the excitement build, a fierce-pulling gelding got on to the heels of a horse in front of him.

Without warning, the 54kg person in control of the 520kg steed doing a speed close to 50km/h and building, has been jettisoned over the head of his sprawling mount A jockey lies motionless on the turf, kicked along under the heels of oncoming horses like a rag doll. Those lucky to keep their seat in the saddle, look back over their shoulder.

 

For 10 Year National Jockey Celebration Day you can donate to the Jockeys Trust at all outlets in VIC & NSW from 1 – 7 August
