Sydney’s Autumn Racing Carnival starts at Warwick Farm on Saturday and, to spice up the best time of the year for thoroughbred racing in the harbour city, I am taking bets on which trainer will win the most Group One races.
Autumn is when the Tulloch Lodge stable of my mum, Gai, fires up so I have installed her as the 2.75 favourite, with Peter Moody (3.00), Peter Snowden (4.50), Chris Waller (7.00) and any other trainer (11.00) rounding out the field.
Mum will be hard pushed to equal or better her 2003 feat of eight Group One winners during Sydney’s Autumn Racing Carnival but her team, headed by More Joyous, has what it takes to fend off the interstate and intrastate challengers.
There are two Group One races on Saturday – the Chipping Norton Stakes at Warwick Farm and the Australian Guineas at Flemington in Melbourne – and you can get my thoughts on both of those races by watching the video version of The Smarts, which you can do at my frequently updated blog.
If you love footy tipping then you are going to love my new tipping comps website. The first prize for my free-to-enter AFL tipping comp is a seven-night trip to the Grand Final in Melbourne and there is an equivalent prize on offer to the winner of my free-to-enter NRL tipping comp.
All the best,
