Canberra Racing Review Wednesday 8 May 2019


They raced on a soft seven and the rail chopped out. Back and wide was the place to be.


Having said that, there was only one blow-out (Le Cavalier) in the Federal, with five well supported gallopers winning on the day.


Race 1


Canberra Racing Review 5 April 2019

They raced on a soft 5 and it was a very competitive days racing.

The $40,000 Federal saw a blow-out result with Friskee One saluting at $41.0 setting up a trifecta in excess of $4.000.  


PRINCE JACKO ($3.80) was the one punters came to on track and he duly obliged for the Dryden-Collings training partnership with Blaike McDougall in the saddle. Prince Jacko led has he liked at a steady gallop tailed by FISCAL POLICY ($4.20) and he showed plenty of grit to hold that galloper off. 

Saturday 23 March


A horror start for favourite punters. The money kept coming for the Kurt Goldman-trained LOVE ME BROKE and he started at the prohibitive odds of $1.45.  The colt was slow off and sat back off a hectic charge up front but ran-in badly when asked for an effort before finishing it off okay. He has to trial to the satisfaction of stewards before racing again and the stable advised that it intends to apply the blinkers for the next outing.

Black Opal Review

The track played beautifully for Canberra’s premier Black Opal Race Day in front of a bumper crowd.

The Black Opal Stakes

The field fell away to just seven runners for the feature, the John McGrath Auto Group Black Opal Stakes, but it developed into a keen betting affair with Rome the easing $2.80 favourite.

The money came for the James Cummings-trained PIN SEC resuming off a Randwick Maiden win and she duly saluted in style.
