The Golden Slipper looms large on the agenda for sizeable two-year-old Raceway who proved a class above rivals in the Warwick Farm 100 Club (1000m) at Warwick Farm today.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained colt was strongly supported to start $2.45 favourite on the back of a trial win on December 23 at Randwick.

And despite greenness Raceway never gave punters any need to worry.

Jockey Hugh Bowman pushed the $150,000 Inglis yearling purchase along early from gate eight after an average getaway.

Raceway moved across to settle fifth with Emperor of Rome setting a solid speed in front of Agueda, Brunner and Lunar Rose.

Bowman moved Raceway out on the bend and took the front at the 200m.

Despite ducking in, the chestnut ran away impressively once shown the whip.

Raceway is bred on the same lines as 2008 Golden Slipper winner Sebring and owned in the same interests via Star Thoroughbreds.

“He is a really smart horse,” Star Thoroughbreds head Denise Martin said.

“Half of the owners are the Sebring group and some new people are in this one, it is really satisfying.

“He was Sydney Easter buy and Gai liked him very much.”

Bowman gave Raceway a big tick.

“He is the best horse I have sat on for a while.

“He was slow away but I had to deal with it.

“I poked forward and was going to be on top of a hot speed so eased him back and then saw a spot up front.

“That is what really impressed me.

“He went forward, came back, forward, then settled and had them beaten in a stride.

“But his best work was late when I sat up on him at the end.”

Agueda, though no match for the winner, stuck on  well for second.

Dear Demi copped severe interference at the start and flash home late to finish fourth, albeit a long  way from the winner.

She needed to win or run second to qualify for next week’s Magic Million Classic.

    Hip dysplasia is not uncommon in many dog breeds, particularly the larger breeds. It is a deformity of the of the hip joint so the bone and socket do not fit snug. It causes rubbing and degeneration of the bone, inflamation and damage to surounding cartalidge. The condition usually leads to arthritus as the bone is grinded down new mishapen bone grows back causing pain. The good news about Canine Hip Dysplasia is that most cases can be treated to help eliminate or decrease pain, allowing fairly normal levels of activity. Very few dogs today have to be put to sleep to alleviate suffering. There are always choices to be made, but the vast majority of affected animals can live quite comfortable lives. Depending on how severe the damege is pain medication and anti-inflammatory drugs can be given. Another very good supplement to give is glueclosamine. Eventually though surgery might be necessary. . . I would suggest talking to the shelter about having him examined by a vet of your choice before officially adopting him. If you are willing to spend a little money to consult with a vetranarian you’ll be able to discuss this guy’s prognosis. This way you can know beforehand if his case is mild or severe and what treatment options are reccommended and at what cost. I hope I haven’t scared you away from adopting this dog because it may only be arthritis misdiagnosed or a mild case of hip dysplasia, only a vet can tell you for sure.

    Have seen and heard about such an insect for the first time. I really like knowing about various types of insects and animals. The life cycle of the insect shared in here seems to be very interesting. Will look forward to more such interesting posts.
