Many of us have been salivating at what this year’s edition of the Chariots of Fire might present us. As is almost always the case, we lost a couple of big guns along the way (Ride High, Spankem and Pat’s Delight) but we still have a collection of budding superstars aiming for Group 1 glory … More Chariots of Fire
I watched the barrier draw live on Facebook this week for the $500,000 Group 1 Hunter Cup and only once could I hear a significant amount of noise from the people in the room. It was when TAB’s Adam Hamilton – on behalf of Kevin Pizzuto and co. – drew barrier three for reigning Inter … More Hunter Cup – Tiger’s To Lose…
Instead of me telling you what I think will happen in Super Bowl LIII, I’m going to help you decide. The offical points line currently sits at 56.5, which is too low in my view. Nevertheless, I’m going to pose 28 questions and all you need to decide is yes or no. 28 questions, yes … More Super Bowl LIII – You decide!
Last weekend, Ballarat presented us with an insight into what the summer of Harness Racing holds in store. 28 quality three-year-olds competed in the Victoria Derby heats, we saw the reigning NZ Cup champ steal Group 1 glory from a hometown hero and we watched another handful of pacers and trotters go round in what … More Summer of Glory – part two.
Championship Sunday is upon us. The top seeds from both conferences have made their way through for a chance at playing off in Super Bowl 53.

As always, the Cup is loaded with top-end talent but deeper than you think on first inspection. Staggeringly, one-time ID18 favourite Spankem … More Ballarat Cup Preview
The opening weekend of the NFL playoffs was fun, but this weekend’s divisional round of games look even more appealing. A streaking Indianapolis squad roll into Kansas City where you know the whole town is pretending there’s nothing to see here when it comes to recent playoff struggles. Veteran Phil Rivers leads his well-rounded LA … More NFL Divisional Round
Some of the lovely ladies on this list will be worth just as much after they hang up the sulky but in the meantime, they’ve collectively been doing some amazing things on the race track. It’s always been difficult to overcome the great entires who go onto become stallions or rugged open class geldings … More Unofficial Harness Racing Power Rankings – Fillies & Mares

Such is the volatile nature of age-restricted racing, I’d expect this list to look incredibly different in six months time. There may even be a horse … More Unofficial Harness Racing Power Rankings (3-year-olds)
Tiger Tara was an inch away from a New Zealand Cup-Inter Dominion double so it’s safe to say the iron-horse deserves his place atop the power rankings. From there, she gets a whole lot more confusing. I sat down a month ago to come up with a top 10 and I had to close … More Unofficial Harness Racing Power Rankings – January 7th
