I thought the same Rats but it was odd that a $2mill race is flying under the radar  :shrug:

Not sure it's a fair fight, summer on the GC or in the back blocks of Western Sydney   :lol:

No money left after the Everest advertising etc.

I have not seen many ads even for the Championship or Slipper too compared to the saturation for the Everest.

There is even a Winx meet and greet this Saturday morning at Randwick. You would honestly think that a bright spark at ATC would arrange a bus or transport after the event to Warwick Farm etc to bolster the audience.

In regards to Warwick Farm, the ATC has not even spend the equivalent on advertising for the Everest on the facilities at the Farm. I was there on the Australia Day Monday Public Holiday and it probably has not changed for the past 10-15 years. New seats or even a fresh coat of paint on the seats would be good.

The Inglis complex is amazing and I was there for the first sale last year and it is fantastic. If the ATC improves the Farm and has a few more Saturday meetings, it will thrive. However Randwick brings more money due to the party crowd and the marquees so facilities there will always get more than the other 3 Sydney tracks.

Octagonal beating Juggler is still my favourite memory at the Farm plus Nothin Leica Dane v Octagonal in the Hobartville coming a close 2nd. It is a good but neglected track and usually play very fair compared to the Kensington etc.

The 3YO race is worth (only) half as much but looks the more interesting race with the re-appearance of Slipper winner Estijaab.

In spite of Brenton Avdulla not being on the horse's back when it came out of the barrier in it's trial (not sure what happened) it went around like a scalded cat and would have received a good workout for this

Estijaab has only been beaten once and that was the barest of margins by Sunlight in the Silver Slipper.

Fiesta was only beaten 3.3 lengths by Estijaab in the Slipper and in the Spring won the Silver Shadow then ran 2nd in all the other legs of the Princess series. Looks the main danger.

In the 2YO Accession would be undefeated if it hadn't have run into Athiri on debut - Athiri looks an exceptional horse and will carry mine in Melbourne as will Accession.  In fact I've taken an early double.

The similarity between the two Hawkes fillies, Estijaab and Mossfun, Goden Slipper winners in 2018 and 2014 is remarkable.

I'll go for the Quinton colt, Royal Celebration, to repeat his earlier victory on this track.

I've little interest in either Inglis race but I'll have a small nibble at the $16 for the Tim Martin trained Danawi, drawn wide but it's a single turn, showed pace in it's first prep so hope they roll forward.

The 2YO winner Castelvecchio repeated his debut Canterbury effort and came from last.

He seems to have zero early pace and the trainer seems more interested in the Sires which might be a good move. Josh Parr reckons this horse has still got a lot to learn.

Castelvecchio Win A 'Life Changer' For Litt

Richard Litt scored the biggest win of his short training career with Castelvecchio in the inaugural running of the $2m Inglis Millennium (1200m) on his home track, Warwick Farm.

The Dundeel colt, with Josh Parr in the saddle, launched home from last to win by a widening two lengths. It was a stunning victory.

Punters Intelligence reveals his last 600m of 35.90s was 4.5L quicker than the next best in the race, which was the second placed Accession (36.59s). Espaaniyah sped along in front again running a fast 34.95s for the first 600m. That's quick on a good track, let alone a soft one.

Punters had it pegged as a two horse race with Accession and Dawn Passage dominating betting but they had to settle for the minor placings.

"This is what we do it for, this is what we get up in the morning for, and this horse is the real deal. Unbelievable," said Litt, who has been training for three years under his own name.

"He just does everything so easily and we never push him, today he isn't even revved up for this. He has had two gallops coming into this so he isn't even cherry ripe yet."

That's a scary thought.

Being an Inglis restricted race, the prizemoney from the race doesn't count towards the Golden Slipper so Litt is already eyeing off the G1 Inglis Sires (1400m).

"We wont push him and rush him to the Slipper, we'll just take our time and see where he takes us," he said.

The 29-year-old, who spent time under Graeme Rogerson, John O'Shea, Bart Cummings and his father Jim, concurred that the win could be life changing, cheekily suggesting that he might be able to buy a few more horses at the Inglis sales tonight.

Josh Parr described the win as phenomenal.

"They say ignorance is bliss and that's certainly the case with this horse, he is so raw. He has no idea what this is all about," gushed Parr.

"It's all just sheer ability, you saw how hard I had to urge him into the race from the 600m point  and made my job quite difficult but his turn of foot after being asked for a run so far from home, was extraordinary."

I hope he sticks to this plan about the Sires. I think Castelvecchio  would be a great chance in it and the Champagne Stakes.

Many a horse has been brought undone by owners/trainers going for the Slipper instead of sticking to their original plan.
