One day you might be feeling well and the next you could be struck down by unbearable shoulder pain, the kind that takes your breath away. Then comes the first of many sleepless nights.

O’Donnell has been hit by injuries before, they go hand-in-hand with  being a jockey, it’s the nature of the job, but his latest setback has been a severe test of his mental and physical resilience.

The Listed Beaufine Stakes (1000m) has been a successful race for trainer Neville Parnham and he’s confident that trend can continue with a two-pronged attack at Belmont on Saturday.

Ghost Who Walks is aiming to go back to back after defeating favourite Real Danger last year and can give Parnham a fourth Beaufine after Bovader (1990) and Irish Pride (2003). The six-year-old, who has not raced since the Rock Magic in March, tun ..read more

There is talented opposition against him, but Russell Stewart gives Stylish Lord a big chance of winning the Listed Aquanita Stakes (2000m) at Belmont on Saturday. Stewart’s confidence in Stylish Lord outpointing his nine Aquanita rivals is founded on his strong win with 60kg against older horses at Belmont a week ago. The Playing God gelding enjoyed a good run on the fence to the turn and once clear for jockey, Alan Kennedy, he finished best and scored by a neck over 1650m. Stewart said there was alot to like about how Stylish Lord ran through the line strongly and he’s looking forward to get ..read more

It wasn’t exactly a pleasant watch for trainer Kieran Regan, but he’s hoping his talented filly Lyrical Angel can get up and going again in Saturday’s Listed Belmont Oaks (2000m). Full of hope pre-race, Regan was left lamenting after Lyrical Angel endured a torrid run out wide in the Belmont Guineas and tailed off to finish 35 lengths last behind Luvnwar. Regan says Lyrical Angel is far better than what she showed in the Belmont Guineas and he expects the God Has Spoken filly to rebound quickly. “To be honest, I haven’t watched the replay,” Regan said to the Races WA. “It’s a complete forget a ..read more

If Jokers Grin can reach anywhere near the heights of his brother, Cup Night, then trainer Bernie Miller and connections of the three-year-old are in for an exciting journey. So far, from a small sample size, just the three starts, Jokers Grin is looing the goods and if he continues on an upward spiral a bright future is being tipped for the gelding. Jokers Grin started the McMahon Handicap (1000m) at Belmont on Wednesday as a red-hot $1.70 favourite and lived up to the market hype with a sizzling finish from last. The son of Maschino, with Pat Carbery in the saddle, never looked like getting ..read more

Saturday’s Listed Amelia Park-Belmont Guineas (1600m) was the first black type win for talented three-year-old filly, Luvnwar and jockey Pat Carbery doesn’t believe it will be her last.
