Jimmy Choux looks a worthy Cox Plate favourite after winning again on Satruday. Any horse that can make up that amount of ground on a frontrunner's course is special, indeed.

People will right him off through the red Ruler formline but Red ruler is a very different horse back in NZ than he showed here.

The Kiwis could be in for a good Melbourne spring. Jimmy Choux (Cox Plate), Lion Tamer (Cups), Dowager Queen (Oaks) and Sangster (Derby) all look realistic chances.

Congrats to the little trier Atomic Force, 4 wide whole way and ranges up and wins his second G1 easily!!
Well done Mr Smith.
From the family of Encounter, he is a little ripper.
Bugger Hong Kong, this is a great little consolation, with another winnable G1 in a while for him over there.
Good stuff.
Also good for Dubai's Choice his interesting near relative low level sire who went for 1.8 mill as a baby.

Absolutely - great effort - and must be reasonable hope of the double.

FYI this site is good for NZ news http://www.theinformant.co.nz/racing/

David Walsh is on absolute fiii-errr at Greymouth today, ridden 5 winners so far 3/1 9/2 1/1 10/1 5/1 age shall not weary the veteran, nor the years condemn  :clap2: And another veteran celebrating his birthday today won on a 5/1 shot at Awapuni aboard galaxy Star, N.G. (Noel) Harris, and over at Ellerslie, Masa Tanaka has bagged himself a treble including the first winner at $24 almost the bolter in the 8 horse field, when the result came up on sky with the winners name, the jockey's name was screened as NN, short for NOT NOTIFIED, must have been a last second engagement for even sky to not know who was on top  :chin: Jimmy Mac has also bagged his obligatory double at Ellerslie but they were on shorties.

Watch for Dr Fremantle, particularly if he runs in the Auckland Cup.

Anyone know what is going on with Scarlett Lady? She won that listed 1600m race first up  on the 6/2 /12. Now it's 22 days later and she hasn't had another run.

Scheduled to start next on Saturday week at Ellerslie and then to Sydney I think

Have look that NZ Derby field, really good race to come.

Silent Achiever is out to beat the boys and she looks outstanding talent thus far. Few other smart ones in the race though.

Exciting won on w/end by exciting horse - Sacred Falls.

Missed kick by 4/5L - won by bit over length pretty easily. G2 Hawkes Bay Guineas - now 4 from 4 - something bit special about effort I thought.

I just watched the Awapuni Gold cup (race 9), and 3 horses hit the line together. They put the photo up on sky of the finish, it appeared to show 14 winning by a nose from the 1 Spiro, with 2 an inch away 3rd, and guess what ? The result is a dead heat 2 and 14, with 1 3rd, and correct weight declared immediately, no one even bother to check the print ??  :shrug:  If somone is able to put the photo finish up here, i'd like to re-examine it. I swear that was no dead heat, and there was a slight margin for the horse in the middle 14

Sacred Falls now 6 from 6 after taking out  NZ 2000 Guineas - not spectacular win but he dug deep when challenged - good runs from top 3.

Looks like he'll head to Syd in autumn unless they head to NZ Derby.

I think he's awfully promising but still long way to go.

Did anyone see R1 at Riccarton just then?

Somehow, a row of witches hats was placed on the track at around the 1000m mark, from inside to outside running rail .

Could have ended very badly.

I saw it.  :censored: unbelievable, jockey Ashley McKay was hurled into the ground after her horse went sideways to avoid the roadblock  :o A few runners either fell or were effectively put out of the race, but commonsense has prevailed and it's been declared a NO RACE

After a long delay and track inspection, the rest of the meeting has been abandoned, they only ran one race (race 2) and they were slipping all over the place.

It should be mentioned too, yesterday at TAUHERENIKAU races, Lisa Alpress finally notched up her ONE THOUSANDTH career winning ride aboard Kekova. Not many female jockeys have achieved that anywhere in the world, certainly no one has got even close in NZ, and there have been many great female jocks there over the years   :noteworthy:
