Bellarine Beauty puts in a solid debut performance to finish 4th

Bellarine Beauty stepped out on debut in Race 2 at Seymour yesterday afternoon, with jockey Craig Wiliams on board. The field narrowed down to 9 runners, with many of them solidly in the market and having their first starts. 3YO filly Bellarine Beauty jumped out of the gates a tad slower than what we have seen in her trials and struggled to find a place in the field, eventually settling 3 wide the trip. Despite this, and being bumped at the 200m by the eventual winner and race favourite, she still managed to hit the line nicely and finish 4th.…

Op-Ed: Innovation for television – what racing can learn from sailing

Golf, cricket and sailing… these are the three sports that struggled to ignite one degree of interest in me as a television spectator in my youth. When they came on tv, I would turn to a book until Dad flicked the channel over to watch the next race at Forbury Park.  Like many sports, golf, cricket and sailing have technical concepts requiring a degree of specialist knowledge for the viewer to remain interested. This makes it difficult for a novice to start watching without irritating a fellow viewer with questions. In the ’90s, expert television commentators were heavily relied on…

What rest really means for a young thoroughbred

Sometimes we can get frustrated with our horse spending so much time resting in the paddock. However, studies have found that this rest time is necessary for a racehorse to fully develop and perform at their best, especially as younger horses.  Over a 12-month period, a typical thoroughbred in work spends between 42-60% of its time in training, with the remaining time turned out for a spell.  There are a number of reasons for giving a horse a lay-up from training. Lameness is the most common underlying reason, followed by viral colds, ‘tying up’, especially in fillies, “training off” after…
