Trainer Mike Moroney has high hopes unbeaten 3-year-old gelding Merion can win Caulfield Guineas

MIKE Moroney only has to look back to last year to find a precedence to suggests he isn’t flying too high in aiming his undefeated three-year-old gelding Merion to be a legitimate Caulfield Guineas.

Last year’s Caulfield Guineas was won by Long John who claimed the same two races Merion won during autumn.

The pair both won at Bendigo at their debuts before winning the Listed Anzac Day Stakes (1410m) at Flemington.

The only difference was that Long John had a win at Sportingbet Park sandwiched in between.

Team Hawkes could head south if Sydney’s big wet continues

Hawkes Racing could be forced to move its powerful spring team to Melbourne if Sydney’s big wet continues into next week, with La Amistad and Messene among the possibilities to be redirected to the Memsie Stakes.

Makybe Diva’s three-quarter sister, La Amistad, which is favourite for Thursday’s Rowley Mile at Hawkesbury, and Messene, favourite the the Warwick Stakes at Randwick on Saturday, are likely to be scratched because of the heavy tracks.

Zanbagh’s presence is bitter-sweet for new trainer Patrick Payne

PATRICK Payne is honoured by opportunity yet remains crushed by the circumstances of Zanbagh’s presence in his country stable.

Zanbagh, the dual Oaks placegetter who begins her Caulfield and Melbourne Cup campaign at Moonee Valley on Saturday, was trained by the late Guy Walter.

Walter and Payne were close friends.

In the late 1990s Warwick Farm based Walter would stable horses like Tie The Knot at Ballarat, not far from the stables of Payne’s father Paddy.

SYDNEY’S big wet has caused Team Hawkes plenty of headaches, with the stable loathe to kick-start the spring campaigns of their carnival stars on a bog, including La Amistad in Thursday’s $100,000 Listed Rowley Mile.

La Amistad, the three-quarter sister to three-time Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva, was expected to begin her own march towards the first Tuesday in November in the Hawkesbury feature.

Several days of wasting found their reward in a few seconds of acceleration on the Knavesmire on Wednesday, as Australia and Joseph O’Brien swept past The Grey Gatsby and Telescope to win the Juddmonte International Stakes. It was the third Group One success in a row for horse and jockey and, for O’Brien at least, by some way the most difficult.

Samaready’s half-sister wins at Sandown   Leave a comment

Samaready’s half-sister wins at Sandown

 

Samartested, a half-sister to Group One winner Samaready, has scored her first city win with a narrow victory in a midweek race at Sandown.

Samartested will not join her high-profile big sister Samaready in trainer Mick Price’s spring carnival plans but the filly managed to secure a valuable city win on Wednesday.

Price believes dual Group One winner Samaready is going as well as ever building up to her spring return, while three-year-old Samartested stepped out for her city debut at Sandown in The Cove Hotel Handicap (1400m) and claimed a narrow victory.

Guru to gamble on Caulfield Cup ambition but Leon Macdonald is unsure about Group 1 racing   Leave a comment

Guru to gamble on Caulfield Cup ambition but Leon Macdonald is unsure about Group 1 racing

 
 

Sky Racing News Update (20/08/14)

 
 
 
 

THE Caulfield Cup is the ultimate goal for Gamblin’ Guru, but Hall of Fame trainer Leon Macdonald thinks he might end up just that level below.

Macdonald has entered Gamblin’ Guru, who resumes in Saturday’s Penny Edition Stakes at Morphettville Parks, for both the Caulfield Cup and the Cox Plate in the hope the talented stayer can prove him wrong.

If not, there are plenty of other nice races for him to pick off during the spring carnival.

THE world’s top-rated sprinter, Lankan Rupee, took another step to his return to racing early next month with a quiet barrier trial at the Cranbourne training complex.

Trainer Mick Price has pencilled in the $201,000 Ian McEwen Stakes (1000m), run under weight-for-age conditions at Moonee Valley on September 6, for the gelding’s return.

Price was not looking for much from Lankan Rupee yesterday, but there was little jockey Craig Newitt could do to prevent his mount pouncing on the lead. Lankan Rupee breezed along under a hold through the first half of the 800m trial and led his rivals into the straight.

Tax reform and Championships funding news a shambles from the get-go

Roots ‘n All

The Championships has secured its future and $10 million in funding after an announcement that could only be called Yes Minister meets Faulty Towers.

Racing NSW needed to know about The Championships funding on a couple of fronts. The autumn program has to be locked by the Australian Pattern Committee this Friday, sponsors needed to know if the event would be held and the recruitment of international horses has to start, as did the search for a new chief executive of the race series.
