Beasley bows out with a win

Jockey Danny Beasley bid Singapore farewell with a well-timed run in the opener, scoring aboard Lim’s Zoom (NZ) (Zacinto) for his all-time supporters in the Class 5 1200 at Kranji on Saturday. Per Incrown (NZ) (Per Incanto) was closing in on the outside but had to settle for second half-a-length behind at the post. Happy Friday (NZ) (Shooting To Win) finished another three-quarters-of-a-length in third. The happiness doubled six races later after Beasley made an aggressive but smart winning move around the bend on noted stayer King’s Speech (NZ) (Darci…

Ruakaka raiders end Cromwell meeting on a high

Northland trainers Kenny Rae and Krystal Williams had their patience rewarded in more ways than one with a triumphant end to Sunday’s Cromwell Cup meeting. The father-daughter team trekked south from their Ruakaka base and had eight horses entered across the two-day meeting on Friday and Sunday.

Patience paying dividends with quality mare Faithful Feat

Five-year-old mare Faithful Feat (NZ) (Per Incanto) will be aimed at black-type assignments this campaign after a dominant victory in an open handicap over 1300m at Te Rapa on Saturday.

Winning jockey Michael McNab…

By Adam Hamilton Emerging training force Jason Grimson didn’t win an Inter Dominion heat, but still turned plenty of heads on opening night.

Bolt For Brilliance makes winning start to ID 2022

By Adam Hamilton The trademark Tony Herlihy cheeky grin was back at Ballarat last night. That’s because normal programming resumed and his stable star Bolt For Brilliance put a testing few weeks behind him to easily win his opening round Inter Dominion heat. The win saw his Grand Final odds tumble from $2.60 to $2. There wasn’t anything special about the win, but it was simply the fact he showed he was over his setback and had settled well in Victoria. The race changed when Sundons Courage crossed favourite Majestuoso…
