Racing & Sports Canberra Racing Preview — 19 February 2021

The rail is back in the true position and with fine weather forecast through to race day the Good 4 rating is likely to hold. It’s a cracking card and the feature — the $150,000 Canberra Mile — looks a beauty.  A programme that is sure to appeal to racing aficionados and punters alike — with plenty of emerging gallopers engaged, including from top Sydney yards.

Racing & Sports Canberra Racing Review — 5 February 2021


The Canberra track was rated a Soft 6 with the out 10m the entire. As with recent wet track meetings here, it was soon apparent the outside section of the track was the place to be, requiring some astute riding and an ounce of luck. A lot that went around today will be much more competitive back to decent footing. Matt Dale took training honours with a double and had two decent seconds to boot.

The track is currently rated a Soft 5. There is the possibility of some showers leading into race day. The rail is out 10m the entire. Good competitive fields as we head into the Canberra autumn features. Expect to see some promising 2yo gallopers to emerge out of Race 3.

Racing & Sports Canberra Racing Review — 22 January 2021

The rail was out 8 Metres the entire. The track was rated a Good 4 to kick off with, but was immediately upgraded to a Good 3. You could make ground. Blake McDougall again took riding honours with two winners and the training honours were evenly shared. Timely Shadow impressed in the last.

LAMINGTON DRIVE $1.7F was the one punters wanted in the small field and he just got in from the Sydney-trained AESOP’S FABLE $6, with INVINCIBLE DASH $4 a couple of length back in third. 

Further Update on COVID-19 Exclusions for Race Meetings at Thoroughbred Park

In consultation with Racing NSW stewards, the Canberra Racing Club wishes to advise updates to COVID-19 border restrictions made by ACT Government relevant to travelling participants and patrons. The ACT Government has lifted hotspot declarations on all local government areas except for Cumberland and consequently, participants travelling from previously excluded areas such as Rosehill Gardens and Wawrick Farm are now allowed to enter the ACT and Thoroughbred Park. This update also allows local participants to travel their horses to Sydney freely.
