You're right. 

He was on the ATC committee at the time of the merger - he was with the STC.  Retired after 12 months service post merger.

Well Dave I can we can hold more than one conversation at a time.

I like discussing a fantasy 2 mile race in November as well.

Unless they've changed it the Melb Cup is on in November and it's now March.

Doubt that the 2017 Cup discussion is at fevour pitch anywhere.

Well looks like the big race is going ahead in spite of claims earlier on in this thread (and in the news articles attached) that they wouldn't get a full field. Bruce Clark was getting one of the owners of Chautauqua to bag the race, and suggesting it wouldn't start. Looks like it is the second horse in.

Do any of these people who are so quick to speak such crap before the event ever become accountable for their words?

Or do we do like all good media people do - move on to the next piece of exaggerated, negative garbage forgetting that we probably should apologize for being  wrong.  :nowink:

All going well, this October has the potential to be one of the most memorable months ever on the Australian racing calendar. Looking forward to it very much   emthup

See the field running in the T.J Smith tomorrow - that is The Everest, save maybe 1-2 three year olds.  So no need to wait till October!

Check back in Oct and let's see how we go. Would love to see Voodoo Lad take his rightful place as Australia's highest ever prize money earner.

Sydney's new race day to overshadow Melbourne Cup carnival

 
Patrick Bartley

The head of Racing New South Wales Peter V'landys says he is unrepentant at the prospect of one of Victoria's most important racing days, the Caulfield Guineas meeting, losing its Australia-wide prestige due to a lavish meeting being planned for the same day in Sydney.
With feelings between Sydney and Melbourne racing executives already strained, V'landys defended his stand on building New South Wales' October 14 meeting into a world class day.



Peter V'landys is going full steam ahead with the plan for a big meeting in Sydney that will clash with Caulfield Guineas day.  Photo: Getty Images
V'landys said his sole aim was to present the best racing product he could for the NSW industry.
"The last time I looked, I wasn't being paid by Victorian Racing, I'm paid by NSW and I'm just doing my job. My Job isn't and has never been working for Victoria.
"I don't think the president of the Collingwood Football Club would be ringing the president of the Carlton Football Club to tell them the new initiatives they're bringing in.
"We were thrilled with the outcome of the championships and equally thrilled with the response from the Everest and the early discussions on having the Craven Plate moved to October are all things we are looking at ,"  V'landys, said.


If the Craven Plate is moved from its position in September to October 14, it will directly rival the weight for age Caulfield Stakes run on the same day in Melbourne.
However the real impact will be that great race mare Winx could then remain in Sydney to run in the Craven Plate and only come to Melbourne for the Cox Plate, leaving Victorian racegoers only one opportunity of seeing the world's best race mare this spring.

The Caulfield Guineas, the $1 million three-year-old classic, and the rich weight-for-age Caulfield Stakes  now face being overshadowed by the richest race meeting in the southern hemisphere being run in Sydney.Traditionally, the Caulfield Guineas meeting is one of the most important venues in early spring, underpinning all of the Group One races going forward during Australia's richest carnival.However, NSW have announced that they will hold their $10 million Everest sprint race against the Caulfield Guineas.
As well, Sydney will stage the $750,000 Spring Champion Stakes in direct opposition to the Caulfield Guineas.

With Winx already being embraced by the Australian sporting public, combined with the Everest and three-year-old Spring Championship race all in one day, it will indeed take the shine off the  Caulfield Guineas meeting and the opening of the Victorian Spring Carnival.
Fairfax Media understand that senior Racing Victoria officials looked at creating a $1 million bonus to be paid for a horse to win the Caulfield Stakes, Cox Plate and Mackinnon Stakes, as a means of tempting Winx to Melbourne.

This is Tonto's idea - he mentioned it again only this week!!

I'm sure Peter V'Landys has pinched Tonto's idea. It is just too much of a co-incidence   :biggrin:

NSW dangle Craven carrot for Winx

"That's a possibility," V'landys told RSN 927's Racing Pulse on Tuesday, when asked whether the Craven Plate could become a Group 1 worth $500,000.

When this flashed up on my TV I thought I'd finally succumbed to delirium tremens.

Unfortunately it turns out I'm not the one who's insane.

V'landys and those barreling out our money to him need to be accessorised with straight-jackets.

Randwick under lights will be struggling to even attract moths.




The Everest (1200m) will be run at Randwick on Saturday, October 14 this year but V’landys revealed a desire to host the annual $10 million race on Friday nights in the coming years.


“We want to present racing in a different way for that big race,” he said.

“It is going to be our chance to attract a younger audience and going on a Friday night under lights is a big part of that plan. We have an excellent working relationship with the ATC as partners and we are working with them to get the lights at Randwick as soon as possible.

Whether people like the concept of not it is getting and airing in all the right circles.

Lady Aurelia is an outside chance of coming down for the race.

One of the owners did contradict the trainer in that he said they would look at closely
but I agree it is unlikely she will come.

Dale Swoops on Everest berth

Canberra sprinter Fell Swoop has been rewarded for his Group 1 consistency over the past two seasons with a spot in October's $10 million The Everest after auctioneers Inglis confirmed on Friday he will take up their slot.

Fell Swoop, who is trained by Matthew Dale, has five times been G1-placed in feature sprints, including in the past two T.J. Smiths at Randwick.

Fell Swoop is a graduate of Inglis' Classic Yearling sale, having fetched $45,000 in 2013.

Other sprinters to have been confirmed as runners are Chautauqua (slot holder is part-owner Greg Ingham), Golden Slipper Stakes winner She Will Reign (Yulong Investments) and Magic Millions winner Houtzen (Aquis Farm).

Everest aim for Ascot star Caravaggio

A trio of highly-regarded sprinters had dominated the build-up to the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup and all of them combined for another Royal Ascot spectacle to remember.

While Thursday’s Gold Cup produced a protracted duel between old Australian favourite Big Orange and Lloyd Williams’ Order Of St George, this 1200-metre speed-fest turned out to be equally as exciting as Aidan O’Brien’s Caravaggio took his unbeaten record to six by lowering the Godolphin blue colours of Harry Angel and Blue Point.

The most mouthwatering prospect was the suggestion from O’Brien that the Coolmore group are strongly considering putting Caravaggio forward to use their share in the inaugural $10 million Everest at Randwick on October 14.

Caravaggio had blitzed the field in the Group 2 Coventry Stakes (1200m) at last year’s meeting before following up in the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes. As his only other appearance had been in a minor warm-up event at home in Ireland, he had to prove it against two other three-year-old colts who had looked of the top order earlier in the season.

How he did prove it, with Harry Angel, new holder of the track record at Haydock, firing out of the gates and setting the pace under Adam Kirby with Blue Point waiting in the wings.

Ryan Moore had work to do on Caravaggio when he moved to the right at the 200m but his mount lurched faster still, powering past the other two and winning by three-quarters of a length.

“He is very quick,” said O’Brien. “I would be happier at two furlongs than six! He is the fastest horse we have ever had, without doubt."

He continued: "He was just ready for his next step today. The lads (Coolmore partners) had it in their mind to come here and then maybe somewhere like the July Cup and then somewhere else after that.

"The lads have a plan in their mind that he might go to Australia for the Everest, so we have to be very conscious now if we want him to last for the autumn.
