Canberra Racing Review Friday 26 July 2019

An entertaining race day with a number of keen finishes. Billy Owen took out both the Jockey and Apprentice Jockey Premiership for the 2018-19 season despite being out of the saddle for a couple of months.


Kayla Nisbet fell short by one win to match Owen – booting home one winner on the day, and just missing on two others.


Nick Olive won the Trainer Premiership by six wins over Matt Dale.

Canberra Racing Preview 26 July 2019

Terrific fields with a sprinkling of sharp Sydney gallopers. It’s the last Canberra meeting for the 2018-09 racing season. Nick Olive has the ACT trainers premiership sown up, but the jockey premiership is a ding-dong go. 


Billy Owen is still out of action, but holds a two win lead over Kayla Nisbet, who would be come the first lady rider to take the title.  She has seven rides and will be out to make every one a winner.

Will a Prince be crowned at Canberra on Friday?

Prince Jacko enters the final meeting of the season at Canberra locked in a tight battle to be crowned Canberra Horse of the Year with three other rivals. Prince Jacko will run in race 7 on the program at 4:10pm, the TAB Federal Benchmark 70 over 1280m. Prince Jacko has two wins and a second from his last three runs all in TAB Federal races on the Acton Track. Should Prince Jacko win he will win the award for his owners. His owners will be chasing rare back to win wins in the title with different horses.

Canberra Racing Preview Wednesday 3 July 2019


Competitive field all day and the $40,000 Federal has again attracted a raft of genuine chances. It was tough to win from the inside at the last meeting and no surprise if the club has that rectified.


Nick Olive backs up two dominant winners from the last meeting: Successful Day in Race 3 and Contaminated in Race 4, and their runs will create plenty of interest.
