Bad tracks like Randwick two weeks back act like bromide to punters, a sedative affecting libido to bet.

The subject arose from a quote by Tony Partridge, the Australian Turf Club chief operating officer at the official launch of the autumn carnival earlier this week.

“We have gone back to the principles that made the Golden Slippers of the past famous – it is fast, fun and sexy,” he decreed.

Black Caviar won almost every major sprinting prize available to her in her home state of Victoria.

But one the great mare didn’t contest was one of the most historical short-course events on the calendar – the group 1 Oakleigh Plate, a  helter-skelter dash over 1100 metres at Caulfield.

IF hot favourite Fontiton wins the Blue Diamond Stakes on Saturday, her purchasers at last year’s Melbourne Premier Yearling Sales could think they have cracked the code for ­buying horses.

And why wouldn’t they if the first horse they bought wins Melbourne’s richest event for two-year-olds?

Matchem Racing’s formula includes DNA testing, cardiovascular testing and stride measurement.
