Autumn Racing in Sydney – the highlight of the Racing Year!

Once again, the County and Provincial Championships heats are proving to be a great drawcard, as the whole of New South Wales racing looks forward to converging on Royal Randwick for The Championships.

The atmosphere and patronage to the Country and Provincial Qualifying races are fantastic so I encourage you to attend, if you can, one of the remaining qualifying races for the series. For the remaining dates, please see item in the Industry Updates section a little later in the newsletter.

With fine weather, it looks like being the best renewal yet of The Championships! See Racing NSW item later in the newsletter for further details.

The Queen of the Turf has returned, better than ever. Course records are being lowered time after time. I am sure you will agree it is hard to find adequate adjectives to describe our champion mare Winx, particularly as they have all been used before.

By saluting in the Group 1 ATC Chipping Norton Stakes at Royal Randwick on 3 March 2018, Winx has set a new Australian record of 16 Group One wins as well as taking her winning steak to 23 wins.

Simply awesome and what a wonderful way to portray our industry.

The Annual Racing Fraternity Mass was celebrated last Sunday in the Royal Randwick Ballroom with another record turnout which is a great result for all involved.

It is also nearly time for “the babies” to stake their claim to the richest two-year-old race in the world and one of the most coveted prizes in Australian racing, the Golden Slipper.

May I take this opportunity to wish members, and indeed all owners, the very best of luck during this very exciting time of year.

As a preamble to our annual Autumn Carnival function on 21 April 2018, our good friend and NSWROA member, Mr Graham Caves, has kindly prepared for the interest of members the following item.

* * * * * *

As an appetiser for this year’s function at Randwick on All Aged Stakes Day on Saturday April 21, I decided to feature a brief resume of the racing career of two very different All Aged Stakes winners from the past.

Both horses were sons of famous Australian racehorses but there the similarities ended.

Chatham: winner in 1934 – The surprise here is that Chatham only won the All Aged Stakes once. Perhaps the finest “miler” Australia has produced, and no contest until Super Impose did his Epsom/Doncaster double-repeat in 1991/1992, Chatham was twice the winner of the Epsom, won a Doncaster carrying 65.5kgs on a heavy track and won three Linlithgow Stakes in succession at a mile. Altogether he won 12 of his 21 races at a mile (1600m). He could stretch his speed to 2000m too because he won three successive Craven Plates and two Cox Plates at that distance. Chatham won many other weight-for-age races and was a true champion of the turf.

As a son of the outstanding racehorse and sire Windbag, Chatham was given a chance at stud and was quite successful.

Charles Stuart: winner in 1905 – As a contrast to the long career at the top for Chatham, Charles Stuart had a shorter time on the racetrack and made headlines before fading out of the limelight and now being a forgotten horse.

Until recent years the All Aged Stakes was, as the name suggests, for horses of all ages, including two-year-olds. No two-year-old has contested the race for a long time but in its earlier years they won it many times. The last to win was Charles Stuart in 1905.

He was a brilliant two-year-old and in his juvenile season of eight starts he won the Ascot Vale Stakes (then for two-year-olds not three-year-olds) in Melbourne then came to Sydney and won the Champagne Stakes and followed with a career best win in the All Aged Stakes at a mile. In that race he defeated the great New Zealand mare Gladsome and Famous, the Doncaster winner of four days earlier and ran an Australian record for the mile.

Charles Stuart could not continue that form and regularly disappointed his owners until he bobbed up in the Moonee Valley Cup in late 1906.

Sired by the high-class racehorse and champion sire Wallace he was eventually retired to stud and had a long career but was unable to sire a stakes-winner.

a sporting newspaper, featuring Charles Stuart.


Footnote: The All-Aged Stakes for most of its history was run at a mile (1600m). In 2004 it was changed to 1400m and was won by the excellent mare Private Steer. It is still run at 1400m today.



Update by Mark Brassel,
Media, Communications & Website Content Manager, Racing NSW

This year’s fifth running of The Championships in Sydney this autumn will showcase some of the finest racing in the southern hemisphere and is appropriately labelled the ‘Grand Finals of Australian Racing’ with $20.2 million in prizemoney on offer.

The Championships features 12 outstanding races run over two days at Royal Randwick to determine champion status over varying age groups and distances, contested by the best gallopers in Australia, New Zealand and from overseas.

Day 1 of The Championships – on Saturday 7 April – is highlighted by the world’s richest handicap mile race, the $3m The Star Doncaster Mile, and is supported by the $2.5 million Darley TJ Smith Stakes and $2m Australian Derby.

Derby Day is the traditional ‘black & white’ raceday stacked with outstanding fashion and entertainment, alongside top-quality hospitality.

Day 2 of The Championships – Saturday 14 April – features the $4m Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes, a Group 1 time-honoured race won last year by arguably the best racehorse on the planet, Winx.

The winning owner of each The Championships race is presented with a unique emerald-encrusted trophy, commissioned by leading Sydney jeweller Nicola Cerrone, with smaller replicas awarded to the winning jockey and trainer of each horse.

And for the fourth time, The Championships race program will include the $500,000 Country Championships Final to be run on Saturday 7 April, and $500,000 Provincial Championships Final run a week later.

Country gallopers had to finish top-two in regional qualifiers around the State to gain entry to the Country Final, while Provincial performers needed to finish top-three to receive their ‘golden ticket’ to the Provincial Final.

The Championships week also incorporates the 534-lot Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale which for the first time, will be held at the new Riverside Stables from 9-11 April.

This eight-day extravaganza is a not-to-be-missed experience hosted by one of the world’s greatest cities.

Fifty per cent of sales from the saddle cloths will also go to the National Jockeys Trust. The Mark Hughes Foundation will receive a percentage of proceeds from an official Golden Slipper Calcutta at Rosehill Bowling Club on Thursday 22 March, with special guest Sydney’s seven-time premiership winning trainer Chris Waller. The ATC and the Mark Hughes Foundation will also host the inaugural Matt Callander Raceday at Royal Randwick on Saturday 23 June at Royal Randwick.

Update by Julieanne Horsman,
Media & Communications Executive, Racing NSW


Five winning horses from Newcastle’s race meeting on the first day of Autumn took home an extra pay cheque, getting BOBS off to a flying start for the month.

Mileage’s impressive come-from-behind victory in the Jennings Print Maiden Plate over 900m at Newcastle on 1st March set the winning tone for the day. Sent out a $1.60 favourite, the Gabrielle Englebrecht-trained filly didn’t disappoint. Under the guidance of jockey Adam Hyeronimous, she settled second last and was still there at the turn for home. But then she unleashed chasing down each horse until it was only her and Bounding Badger (Keegan Latham) out in front. Hyeronimous asked for a little bit more and Mileage responded, saluting by half a length. The win earned her connections $16,630 in prizemoney plus a healthy $5625 BOBS bonus.

Burden Of Proof was the next horse to take home extra prizemoney with an impressive second up win in the Guardian Safety Solutions Class 2 Handicap over 1400m. After a three-way battle in the straight Burden Of Proof (Jess Taylor) prevailed over Swaffham Bulbeck and Chapelco. It came as a shock to most with the filly the least-backed of the field at $21, but trainer Theresa Bateup was confident she’d run a good race. “She’s such an honest filly and I would have been disappointed if she didn’t finish in the top three,” she said. “She’s won three races now and collected a BOBS bonus each time. It’s great for me as I part-own her so I double up and go off to the sales with money in the kitty.”

Sondelon earned his first BOBS bonus at his first start in the Suez 3YO Maiden Plate over 1400m. Jockey Tim Clark had to work hard to get the striking black Lonhro gelding home for his debut victory but once he got going he showed the best is yet to come. He recorded the fastest 200m sectional of the race over the final 200m. Sondelon has been nominated for the Australian Derby during The Championships.

James Cummings has always professed his support for BOBS and his charges have claimed their fair share of bonuses. Eschara has earned an extra 25% prizemoney thanks to the scheme, including her winnings from Newcastle on 1st March. The Godolphin filly recorded back-to-back wins when she cruised to victory in the TJS Services BM 62 Handicap over 1200m. Brenton Avdulla gave her a quiet ride before pulling to the outside and flying home.

Defuego (Blake Shinn) rounded out a successful day for BOBS horses with a win in the Prestige Wedding & Event Hire Handicap over 1500m. The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained gelding chased down tearaway leader Battle Fury to win by more than a length and a half. It was his first victory at his fourth start and the $5625 BOBS bonus made it even sweeter.

Emperor’s Way retains his place at the top of the BOBS leaderboard on $67,500, well clear of Unforgotten on $56,250 and Goodfella on $45,000.
