GOLDEN ROSE 2017


Astern charges home to win the 2016
Golden Rose

G1 1400m ROSEHILL
Saturday 23 September


The Golden Rose has quickly become one of the elite G1s of the Spring even though it is the first one conducted.

Many runners in the race have gone onto win other majors during their respective Springs but future elite horses have also emanated from the beaten entries.

In 2014 Hallowed Crown came from a long way back to charge over the field for Bart and James Cummings. He’d prove it was no fluke in the Autumn with other top efforts.

Then in consecutive years, Godolphin have won impressively with Exosphere and then Astern. He came from well back, rounded them up and ran on by.

EPSOM HCP 2017


Hauraki comes from last to win the
2016 Epsom Hcp

G1 1600m RANDWICK
Saturday 30 September


The Epsom is generally a fast run handicap run from the best starting position in racing - the Randwick mile.

Over the last 20 years we’ve seen some high quality WFA stars like Racing To Win, Desert War, Shogun Lodge, Filante and Winx salute. The mighty Super Impose won this twice as part of his quartet of mile victories.

While mares haven’t had a great record (2 wins since 1976), it’s been the first lady of racing who has dominated this with seven winners of the race from 1997 onwards.

Godolphin scored an unusual G1 handicap victory as Hauraki came from last on the corner to get the bob in.

METROPOLITAN HCP 2017


Sir John Hawkwood wins the 2016
Metropolitan Hcp

G1 2400m RANDWICK
Saturday 30 September


The Metropolitan over the last few years has had a rebirth with the form standing up in future staying races.

Before Equine Influenza struck, back to back Metrop winners went onto win the Caulfield Cup in the shape of Tawqeet and Railings.

Then in 2012 Glencadam Gold came off a Newcastle Cup win to score easily. He was then disappointing as favourite in the Caulfield Cup before getting back on track with a top 6th in the big one at Flemington alongside second placed Kelinni who beat him home in the Cup.

Gai Waterhouse has an extraordinary record in the race but it was Godolphin in 2015 who produced a staying handicap winner which doesn’t happen often. In 2016 Sir John Hawkwood did a great job to win second up.

SPRING CHAMPION STAKES 2017


Yankee Rose was the first filly winner
of the 2016 Spring Champion

G1 2000m RANDWICK
Saturday 7 October


Often the forerunner to future staying potential, the Spring Champion became the G1 for the Sydney 3yos after the AJC Derby was moved to the Autumn.

It was a real stallion makers race a while back but still does provide AJC Derby form six months out as we’ve seen several times.

It was moved a week later to become more of a Victoria Derby lead up as few horses have run in both this and the Caulfield Guineas in recent years.

A filly got the win for the first time in 2016 as Yankee Rose swept down the outside to run past all the boys.

CAULFIELD GUINEAS 2017


Divine Prophet just holds on to win
the 2016 Caulfield Guineas

G1 1600m CAULFIELD
Saturday 14 October


A classic test for the 3yos, it often provides great theatre and/or great controversy.

A lot of the form in recent seasons has come from the Golden Rose as it strangely has been a northern state’s race in contrast to most other Victorian G1s.

Who will forget the extraordinary win of God’s Own after being knocked over three times or the Redoute’s Choice/Testa Rossa war from the home turn.

We saw another great battle when All Too Hard ran down Pierro and a similar situation occurred when Shooting To Win nabbed Rich Enuff late.

Continuing the Sydney trend, Divine Prophet came off a northern campaign and used the inside draw to get a perfect run and hold on late.

THOUSAND GUINEAS 2017


Global Glamour too good in the 2016
Thousand Guineas

G1 1600m CAULFIELD
Wednesday 14 October


The fillies are provided with their chance for a mile G1 but it’s also an important Oaks lead up.

And what a record it has been in recent years with the likes of Miss Finland, Special Harmony, Magical Miss, Northwood Plume, Arborea, Richfield Lady and Tristanagh all taking the double in the last 25 years.

We saw half-sisters Atlantic Jewel and Commanding Jewel win in consecutive years and Fastnet Rock won another edition when Amicus sat on the speed in the first running of the race to be held on Caulfield Guineas day.

Global Glamour defeated what turned into a very decent field considering the post Guineas exploits of the vanquished like I Am A Star and Foxplay.

CAULFIELD CUP 2017


Jameka easily wins the 2016
Caulfield Cup

G1 2400m CAULFIELD
Saturday 21 October


Victoria in the Spring is all about the staying handicaps and the Caulfield Cup is the first of the big two.

In some ways for a while it was showing up more of the quality stayers in the country than the Melbourne Cup. Within 20 years we’ve seen the likes of Elvstroem, Mummify, Ethereal, Sky Heights, Doriemus and two legends in Northerly and Might and Power score sensational wins.

There have been three international winners in the last nine years after Godolphin’s first major in Australia in 2008 as the royal blue surged home with local boy Kerrin McEvoy aboard.

Then the mighty French stayer Dunaden did what Viewed had done three years before in coming back from a Melbourne Cup to take the Caulfield Cup with a withering burst. Japan got on the board with a dramatic surge from Admire Rakti before his sad demise at Flemington.

Top mare Jameka, under a light weight, confirmed all her form and market confidence was right in bolting away with the 2016 edition over all the internationals.

MANIKATO STAKES 2017


Rebel Dane caused an upset in the
2016 Manikato Stakes

G1 1200m MOONEE VALLEY
Friday 27 October


Only moved to Cox Plate eve in 2012, the Manikato gained a big prize money boost and a top field assembled.

It’s been previously won by some of the best horses around with Dual Choice, Manikato (himself), Strawberry Road, Rubiton, Dane Ripper, Redoute’s Choice, Sunline, Miss Andretti, Hay List and Sepoy all taking the prize.

When Buffering won his first G1, there were amazing scenes but it will be hard to top the theatre, both during and after the race, of 2014 when Lankan Rupee led home a swarm of rivals and then survived a long protest hearing to take the win.

Chautauqua tried for back to back wins but there was a huge upset in 2016 as Rebel Dane won at WFA.

2016 Race Details:
REBEL DANE (Ben Melham/Gary Portelli)
Barrier 4 - 58.5kg - $61

COX PLATE 2017


Champion Winx destroys rivals in
the 2016 Cox Plate

G1 2040m MOONEE VALLEY
Saturday 28 October


Australasia’s WFA Championship is no idol boast. It’s just over two minutes of great drama with the rough and tumble of the equines around the tight Moonee Valley course.

Many of the absolute champions of the turf have won this race with Phar Lap, Tulloch and Kingston Town amongst them. Besides the King’s trifecta there’s also been Super Impose’s mayhem Plate, the earth rumbling for Might and Power, Sunline and Northerly’s dual wins and Makybe Diva’s affirmation. Then there was Bonecrusher vs Our Waverley Star racing into equine immortality.

We thought we’d seen it all until Bart produced a fifth starter to score in the second fastest Plate in history with So You Think utterly dominant then he backed it up twelve months on.

International acclaim was to occur in 2014 as Ryan Moore circled the field on Adelaide for Ballydoyle taking their first feature in Australia.

Another absolute champion Winx made it two thrashings in a row giving a class horse Hartnell a caning. Horses in Cox Plates don’t look like winning 800m out like she did.

VICTORIA DERBY 2017


Prized Icon scores easily in the
2016 Victoria Derby

G1 2500m FLEMINGTON
Saturday 4 November


Victoria Derbies are for the 3yos determining who is the best stayer at the time although there have been calls for a reduction in distance back to 2000m.

Whatever it is over, the Derby is the main spectacle on the first day of the VRC Cup Carnival. Efficient won the Derby in 2006 and came back a year later to add the Cup to the Lloyd Williams mantelpiece.

New Zealand took three in a row with Monaco Consul, Lion Tamer and Sangster all winning the Blue Riband.

The race has been won by maidens in the past and another scored in 2014 as Preferment surged late as he had done in the Geelong Classic but this time he won by a head.

In a dominating effort, yet another generation of Cummings’ stood in the Derby winner’s circle as James got Prized Icon to rebound from the week prior at Moonee Valley.

2016 Race Details:
PRIZED ICON (Glyn Schofield/James Cummings)

MELBOURNE CUP 2017


Almandin wins the 2016
Melbourne Cup

G1 3200m FLEMINGTON
Tuesday 7 November


The Melbourne Cup - you don’t need to say much more. Its history is its shining light.

And the one who shines brightest won it for the 12th time in 2008 as Bart conjured Viewed to win the Cup by a nose from Bauer giving Luca Cumani back to back second placings. It may be a handicap but it’s the race every Australian owner wants to win just to say you are part of that history.

Doubtful we’ll see another Champion become a Legend in our lifetimes like Makybe Diva but we love the Cup anyway.

After back to back French winners, it was a former English trained horse, then at Mt Macedon, who won in a decisive manner in 2012. Green Moon was already a Turnbull winner but after disappointment as Cox Plate favourite, he loved the firm ground and the light weight at Flemington.

Fiorente made it another ex-Euro giving Gai Waterhouse her biggest success before a locally owned but overseas trained horse in Protectionist provided Germany with its first victory in the race that stops a nation and gave Ryan Moore the big double. He beat the gallant Red Cadeaux who was second again.

2015 saw more history made as a woman jockey won for the first time bringing a 100-1 shot up the centre. Prince Of Penzance took on a tough field of stayers but it was run very slowly. There were amazing scenes.

It was another Lloyd Williams owned runner winning in 2016 with Kerrin McEvoy bringing home Almandin in a titanic battle with Heartbreak City up the straight.

VRC OAKS 2017


Lasqueti Spirit in a huge boilover in
the 2016 VRC Oaks

G1 2500m FLEMINGTON
Thursday 9 November


While the Derby has seen upsets, the Oaks is usually the domain for favoured fillies. Not so in 2016.

So many have been at or around even money and have gotten the chocolates. Not many in recent times have been as impressive as Samantha Miss who played with them after taking the Princess Series in Sydney.

Mosheen was a recent winner who would go onto good success following her big win at Flemington and in 2014 we saw Set Square win the race at her fourth start.

Ciaron Maher would make it consecutive wins in the Oaks as Jameka followed a Vase victory with a strong win at headquarters.

Then, courtesy of an outstanding ride, Brenton Avdulla led all the way on Lasqueti Spirit at 100-1.

2016 Race Details:

DARLEY CLASSIC 2017


Malaguerra just wins the
2016 Darley Classic

G1 1200m FLEMINGTON
Saturday 11 November


The best WFA sprint of the Spring is held on the last day of the carnival.

While officialdom was not pleased, all the connections of the best sprinters around were happy to see Black Caviar not back to make it a trifecta of wins in the race in 2012.

Buffering confirmed his first G1 was no fluke by winning the straight sprint in 2013 and then in 2014 we saw the replay of the Manikato but had added spice with international interest from Slade Power.

While his sojourn south didn’t work out as hoped, four great sprinters went toe to toe with Terravista taking a late split to win the big prize.

Last year was a very open race with Malaguerra saluting, albeit the runner up Spieth should have clearly scored.

2016 Race Details:
MALAGUERRA (Ben Melham/Peter Gelagotis)
Barrier 11 - 58.5kg - $9
2nd Spieth (B Rawiller)/3rd Fell Swoop (H Bowman)
