In A Twinkling wins second Counties Cup

Enigmatic stayer In A Twinkling was on his best behaviour as he secured his second Gr.3 Franklin Auctions Counties Cup (2100m) with a gritty effort on Saturday. The Jamie Richards-trained five-year-old can be a headstrong character at times and has tested Richard’s patience on numerous occasions. However, when his mind is on the job, he is a highly talented galloper as evidenced by his runner-up performance in the 2019 Gr.1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) along with a stirring front-running effort t...

Tough task for Tofane in Sprint Classic

Trainer Mike Moroney knows Group One winner Tofane has her work cut out for her in Saturday’s Gr.1 Darley Sprint Classic (1200m) at Flemington on Saturday, but believes she will be more than competitive. “She’ll need some luck in the run, but she is a Group One horse and good enough to win,” he said.

Well-travelled three-year-old Not An Option reminded punters of his galloping ability when he defeated a small but classy field of rivals over 1400m at Matamata on Saturday.

Berry booked for Tofane in Everest

Tommy Berry's partnership with brilliant sprinter Chautauqua has helped him to secure the ride on Victorian raider Tofane in the $15 million The Everest.

Age Of Chivalry out for redemption

Age Of Chivalry finished runner-up in the Gr.1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) last season and trainers Matthew Ellerton and Simon Zahra are hoping he can go one better in this year’s edition. “It’s a different sort of race on Saturday,” Zahra said. “He hasn’t drawn as good (barrier 13) and he was probably a touch fitter going into the run last time. That was probably more his grand final last year. “But we have left a bit of fuel in the tank for the Toorak (Gr.1, 1600m) this year...
