TRAINER Paul Preusker was fined $1000 at Warracknabeal on Tuesday for saddling You Can’t Beat Me without the lead bag with which jockey Holly McKechnie had weighed out.

You Can’t Beat Me, who finished third, was disqualified for carrying more than 1kg under his allocated 60kg.

It was established at an inquiry after the race that Preusker had left the lead bag in the gelding’s race-day stall.

You Can’t Beat me had originally paid $2.90 before being disqualified.

ALTHOUGH Lord Of The Sky bolted in with his last start, his trainer Robbie Laing says it will be a much improved sprinter who runs in the Bletchingly Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.

ANOTHER OF BEL’S ANGELS
Well done Doug Blackshaw and crew on the win of Mystic Angel at Echuca on Monday.
It was only the second run for the Bel Esprit filly who had no luck whatsoever when a fast finishing third at Seymour two weeks ago.
Trained by Leon Corstens, Mystic Angel again sat near the back of the pack and finished right over the top of them over the 1200m: she not only adds some VOBIS dollars to the coffers, this is also Bel Esprit 153rd individual winner for the season.

4 FOR BEL
Bel Esprit produced four to score around the nation on Saturday and is now just three shy of matching last season’s 155 individual winners – what was then an Australian record equalling performance.
The Hummel (3 on end), Royal Request (1-2-1 at last 3), Belwina (first up) and Base Jump (sixth win) all add to the plus side of the ledger, but ‘unfortunately’ as each of them are previous winners this season, they don’t enhance Bel’s standing on the individual winners chart.
So, he’s still five shy of Lonhro but we’ve got our fingers crossed. And with Lonhro standing at $88,000 this season compared to Bel’s $24,200 we also reckon he’s exceptional value.

FROM BLACK TO BELUGA
Quite a bit of interest on Saturday around the debut of Beluga Caviar in the Hong Kong Jockey Club Handicap over 1200m at Flemington.
Eliza Park International consigned the youngster to last year’s Easter Yearling Sale where he was knocked down to James Bester Bloodstock for $1.2 million and he’s definitely got the looks to match his price. Family too: the 11th foal of Group Two winning sprinter, Scandinavia, he is a half brother to Group One winner and sire, Magnus, stakes winners Wilander, Scandiva and Arctic Flight, plus Helsinge, the dam of Black Caviar, All Too Hard and another of our sires in Moshe.
Trained by David Hayes, the colt’s owners include Jonathan Munz’s Pinecliff Racing, while breeder, Rob Crabtree has also retained a share.
Unfortunately, Beluga Caviar (pictured as a yearling) didn’t get the money at Flemington but held on well for third, beaten a bit over a neck.
Word is, he’ll better suited to 1400m.

DERBY WINNER FOR BEL ESPRIT   Leave a comment

 

DERBY WINNER FOR BEL ESPRIT
Tara Madgwick – Monday, 21 July 2014

Neil Dyer horse racing photo
Lonhro might be setting the pace for individual winners in Australia this season, but Bel Esprit is right there with him just a couple behind and one of those winners is Royal Request, who took out the $135,000 Northern Territory Derby at Fannie Bay in Darwin on the weekend.
Prepared in Victoria at Kyneton by Neil Dyer, Royal Request won easily when making his Darwin debut on June 21 and then was second to Gravitational (Astronomer Royal) in the Northern Territory Guineas over 1600 metres.
He turned the tables on that rival over the 2000 metres on Saturday when forging clear to win by two lengths, his overall record now three wins and three placings from 13 starts with prizemoney topping $144,000.
A $60,000 Inglis Premier purchase for his trainer, Royal Request is the only winner to date for Nassidarra, a half-sister by Nassipour (USA) to Group II winner Fickle Hostess from Group II STC Silver Slipper winner Vaindarra.
Bel Esprit continues to churn out the winners for Eliza Park International and even without his retired superstar Black Caviar, he remains the most successful Victorian based sire this season with 152 winners of $5.3 million in prizemoney.
Bel Esprit stands at a fee of $24,200

CHAD Schofield has been cleared to return to the saddle next month — but the news wasn’t as positive for fellow Group 1 jockey Zac Purton.

As Schofield had a neck brace removed on Monday after he met a Melbourne specialist, Purton boarded a flight back to Australia to undergo scans on a heel injury.

Racing bodies meet to finalise Super Track feasibility study   Leave a comment

Racing bodies meet to finalise Super Track feasibility study

Date
July 21, 2014 – 8:24PM

Racing will return to Canberra’s synthetic Acton track next winter regardless of what happens at Tuesday’s briefing on a potential Super Track between the ACT government and the ACT’s racing bodies.

Deloitte has completed a report into the potential co-location of all three racing codes – thoroughbred, harness and greyhound – onto one site and Canberra Racing chief executive Peter Stubbs will get his first peek at it at the briefing, where the stakeholders will provide input before the study is finalised and given to the ACT Cabinet.

The Acton track needs a renovation and has laid dormant this winter, with racing switching to the grass track, which is normally only used from spring to autumn.

Victorian racing’s stakeholders pool resources for new media business   Leave a comment

Victorian racing’s stakeholders pool resources for new media business

Date
July 21, 2014 – 5:28PM

Racing needs all the friends it can get.

And if the traditional mainstream media outlets – free-to-air television, newspapers and radio – no longer give it the coverage it once received, then the sport has to fill the gap itself as it seeks to provide information to punters and underwrite the all-important wagering dollar.

That is the thinking behind Racing Victoria’s push to establish a digital-media business, a project that has been 18 months in gestation and to which the sport’s key stakeholders have all invested in the realistation that working together can only be to their mutual benefit.

RACING Victoria will make it much tougher for a disqualified licensed person who had served their time to automatically get back their license.

RV chief steward Terry Bailey said anyone coming back “won’t be getting a rubber stamp” and needed to demonstrate why they should receive a licence.

Bailey said regaining a licence was a privilege and not a right.
