THE John Salanitri stable is looking to Sydney for heavy tracks in the weeks to come for several members of their team.

On Wednesday, To Be Honest made it consecutive city wins at Ballarat when she won the 1600m mares race.

Assistant trainer Frank Salanitri said To Be Honest would run at Randwick on Saturday week, hoping to get a heavy track.

“We’ve got 14 wet-trackers but they can’t run at Caulfield or Flemington because the tracks there with their great drainage are usually good ones even at this time of the year,” he said.

FAN favourite Miracles Of Life has been retired.

Miracles Of Life won the hearts of Australian racing fans when, as a two-year-old, she won the Blue Diamond Stakes for Adelaide trainer Daniel Clarken and jockey Lauren Stojakovic.

As a four-year-old mare, she joined the stables of Peter and Paul Snowden and found form again, culminating in her win in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes in Adelaide at her last start.

JOHN McArdle loves Tasmanian sire Savoire Vivre and on Wednesday trained another winner by him — filly Grisbi’s Run in the 1000m two-year-old race at Ballarat.

McArdle said his stable had had success with horses by Savoire Vivre including Methuselah, Who’s Your Daddy and Trouble In Vegas.

He paid $30,000 for the filly at the Tasmanian Yearling Sales — the most expensive paid for a Savoire Vivre, until McArdle and syndicator Rob Slade paid $100,000 for a colt who is a three-quarter brother to The Cleaner.


TOP-class Kiwi three-year-old Werther has been sold to Hong Kong in a deal believed to be worth $1 million.

Werther, who was trained by Andrew Campbell, will join the stables of Gary Moore and is being set for next year’s Hong Kong Derby.


NO movement in the ­Melbourne jockeys’ premiership on Wednesday.

Craig Williams, who missed Ballarat because of suspension, is in front on 50 winners with Dwayne Dunn, who drew a blank, on 49 and Damien Oliver, who missed because of illness, on 48.
