Easy Caulfield win for Annavisto

Stakes winning filly Annavisto (NZ) (Reliable Man) turned a three-year-old handicap at Caulfield into a stroll in the park, when comfortably winning the Hylands Race Colours Handicap (1400m) on Saturday.

Annavisto’s (Reliable Man x Avisto) win in the Listed Bendigo Guineas (1400m) last Saturday proved to be more than just a highlight for her big group of owners.

Curraghmore graduate looking to conquer Hong Kong Derby

David Hayes will saddle Conqueror in Sunday's BMW Hong Kong Derby (2000m) at Sha Tin. The son of Fastnet Rock was a solid fourth in an 1800m Class 2 behind Butterfield on 7 March, 2021. “Conqueror ran a good race last start and his trackwork with Shadow Hero on Tuesday morning on the course proper was really good. He’ll get the blinkers back on – I think he’s a better horse in blinkers,” Hayes said. “His run in the winkers was good, but he sort of dropped the bit with 600m to ru...

Back-to-back Guineas for Showemhowitsdone

A rematch of last month’s Listed Gore Guineas (1335m) produced the exact same result on Saturday as Showemhowitsdone edged out The Gift in a tight finish to the Listed Mediaworks Dunedin Guineas (1500m) at Wingatui. The same two fillies hit the line locked together two weeks ago at Gore, where the strong-finishing Showemhowitsdone snatched victory by a head. But a rough-house finish and Slow8 track conditions may have raised some doubts over that form when a similar field stepped out on to a D...

Showemhowitsdone survives scary moment to take Gore Guineas

Connections of Riccarton visitor Showemhowitsdone had to endure some anxious moments before her victory in the Listed Liquorland Gore Guineas (1335m) was confirmed on Saturday. The Shane Kennedy and Anna Furlong-trained three-year-old narrowly defeated The Gift in a driving finish to the day’s feature event but proved a handful in the closing stages as she shied at something on the inside of the track and ducked out sharply. Rider Terry Mosely quickly straightened the Showcasing filly, who had...
