2021 Queen of the Turf Winner: Nettoyer Flies Home to Beat Probabeel
The upsets kept coming at Royal Randwick on Saturday as Wendy Roche’s pizza eating mare Nettoyer took out the Queen of the Turf Stakes (1600m) as a $26.00 shot. Much like her win last year in the Doncaster, the daughter of Sebring wound up from well back in the field to pinch a win from Probabeel to claim her second Group 1 right on the line. The autumn had been rather unsuccessful up until Saturday’s race with the seven-year-old finishing well-back first-up at Randwick in the Aspiration Stakes, before failing to fire in her Doncaster title defence last week when…
2021 Queen Elizabeth Stakes Winner: Addeybb Goes Back to Back, Verry Elleegant Runs Second
The Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes lived up to the hype on Day Two of The Championships on Saturday as Addeybb leveled up the score with Verry Elleegant to defend his crown in the $4 million feature. After the pair eyeballed each other only three weeks ago to run first and second respectively in the Ranvet Stakes, punters were a little shocked to watch Tom Marquand settle back nice and early while James McDonald and Verry Elleegant rolled forward. In the end, the decision proved to be a wise one as Marquand pushed the button coming out of the turn…
2021 Sydney Cup Boilover: 26-1 Chance Selino Claims the Spoils
The time-honoured Sydney Cup turned into a boil-over at Royal Randwick on Saturday as 26-1 pop Selino won the race for a fifth time for trainer Chris Waller. Since arriving over from Europe during the spring, the five-year-old stayer had been a consistent customer in work running fifth in the Group 3 Manion Cup at Rosehill last month before improving for fourth in last week’s Chairman Quality at Randwick over the 2600m. Returning on the quick backup, Waller’s former apprentice Ron Stewart was booked to replace Craig Williams in the saddle, a move that paid dividends despite connections questioning it at…
2021 Australian Oaks Winner: Hungry Heart Claims Win No. 4 for Chris Waller
Kerrin McEvoy and Hungry Heart combined to make it back-to-back Group 1’s on Day Two of The Championships on Saturday by taking out the $1 million Australian Oaks (2400m) at Randwick. Only a week removed from their triumph in last week’s Vinery Stud Stakes, the pair returned to Randwick to tackle the extra 400m against a dazzling field of three-year-old fillies looking to cap off their autumn in style. Chris Waller’s brilliant stayer remained a steady $5.00 chance before the jump with Vinery second place-getter Harmony Rose well-supported as the $3.40 favourite over further. Just like seven days prior though,…
2021 Queen Of The Turf Stakes: Colette Remains Good Chance on Good Going
Trainer James Cummings remains confident the stable have the top mare in Saturday’s $1 million Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) with the Godolphin-raced Colette expected to prove her versatility with a win on firmer going.
