Welcome to OneSelection2Win Weekend Racing Mail for Saturday 17th September, we have come up with our best for each meetings around the country.
TRACK – (SOFT 5)
RACE 3 No: 8 GUARD OF HONOUR – Resumes on the back of a strong Wyong trial win (2nd: Clearly Innocent). Warwick Farm winner only run last preparation with leading rider on, Hugh Bowman sticks is a plus. Receives a soft run from the inside gate. Win won’t shock.
RACE 4 No: 6 GLOBAL GLAMOUR – Impressive Kembla winner only run in her first preparation. Handled the turn awkwardly when fresh but got going late when placed in the Furious to run third. Natural improvement with added fitness now, possibly ridden a touch closer. Tommy Berry sticks, Strong claims.
RACE 8 No: 8 TSARITSA – Promising mare who didn’t have the race run to suit when placed at Randwick fresh. Appears to be more early speed here and if that’s the case she will be strong late. Hard to beat.
RACE 9 No: 9 DAYSEE DOOM – Runner-up on the back of successive trial placings at Randwick. Unbeaten in three runs in her first preparation, looks to be a promising horse in the making. Claim brings her in half kilo over the limit. Strong winning chance.
TRACK – (SOFT 7)
RACE 3 No: 2 SERENELY DISCREET – She’s come back well with a good first up win at Morphettville, Fitter and the soft track is no problem as she has a 100% record in the wet. Straight into the box seat, she’ll be in the finish. Stable doesn’t bring to Melbourne unless they show something at home. Eachway.
RACE 5 No: 13 KACHING – Was dominant last start winner at Bendigo, longer trip will suit. With any luck from the gate in the early stages of the race will enhance his chances. Will be flying home late. Both Totes.
RACE 7 No: 9 THE VIRGINIAN – Promising sprinter with a Stradbroke placing in his first preparation to Under The Louvre / Black Heart Bart. He’s trialled well for his return to racing with strong 1000m win. Drawn to receive soft run. He’ll be strong late. Winning chance.
RACE 8 No: 4 REAL LOVE – Ran a huge race fresh without much luck. Perfectly suited out to this trip. Does have great record 2nd up with two wins from three attempts, winning jockey back on is another plus. Eachway with the price on offer.
EAGLE FARM (QLD)
TRACK – (SOFT 7)
RACE 1 No: 1 EMERALD CITY – Ran on well at his 2nd start back at the Sunshine Coast. The 3kg claim helps and this distance will suit now with the added fitness now. Go close.
RACE 7 No: 14 BOUND FOR LOVE – In top form and beat subsequent winner San Telmo easily last start. Rises in grade here but with only 52.5kg will give a great sight. Inform on definite winning chance.
TRACK – (HEAVY 9)
RACE 3 No: 2 BIRDS OF TOKYO – Absolute mudlark that has obviously relished recent wet tracks. Should only find this easier than than latest strong efforts-really does appear extremely hard to beat.
RACE 6 No: 2 ILLUSTRIOUS LAD – Resuming. Blew his rivals away when came with a big run to score last start here. Noted very good fresh galloper that will absolutely get this run to suit with likely strong pressure on up front. Watch for him to be motoring late-don’t dismiss. Take beating.
BEAUMONT – NEWCASTLE (NSW)
TRACK – (SOFT 6)
RACE 4 No: 3 BEZEL – Has won both his trials leading into this. Finished a close second at Canterbury last May only run in his first preparation and the one to beat resuming in a provincial maiden.
RACE 5 No: 10 TAWFIQ BOY – Ran into a smart one on debut at Scone before having plenty on a maiden field at Kempsey last start. Looks more than capable of working through the grades.
GOOD LUCK & GOOD PUNTING
THE ULTIMATE RACING EXPERIENCE
AL MAHER x HELL IT’S HOT 2YO COLT
‘Stellar colt, size, strength – Impossible to fault’
To be trained by: Gai Waterhouse (Randwick)
By the GROUP 1 AUSTRALIAN GUINEAS WINNER – AL MAHER – SIRE OF GROUP 1 WINNERS – DELICACY, ALMALAD, FAT AL & DIAMOND DRILLE
Out of HELL IT’S HOT – WINNER and PRODUCER of 4 FOALS to RACE FOR 4 WINNERS
GAI WATERHOUSE COMMENTS:
‘MAGNIFICENT, BIG, STRONG – SO TYPICAL OF THE AL MAHER BREED’
GAI LOVES this COLT and has TRAINED some of the BEST HORSES by AL MAHER including – DIAMOND DRILLE, FAT AL & ALMALAD all to GROUP 1 WINS!
When the name ‘Al Maher’ is mentioned to Gai, three words that feature prominently in her response are ‘toughness’, ‘honesty’ and ‘brilliance’. We talk about the value of a stallion ‘stamping their stock’ or passing on many of their own traits and I can think of no greater example of this than Al Maher. Winning over $1.1 million in prize money, which included a win in the Group 1 Australian Guineas, Al Maher raced consistently at the highest level. Trained by Gai, she knew exactly what it took to prepare this great colt and it has not stopped at Al Maher himself. He has produced three Group 1 winners, all trained by Gai. She has also trained King Lionheart and Pheidon to secure victory at Group 2 level. This feat is unmatched by any other trainer, she truly is the best at getting the most out of this family.
POWERFUL SPRINTER / MILER / MIDDLE DISTANCE COLT
GREAT STRENGTH, POWER with PLENTY OF BONE and MUSCLE
GOOD DEPTH of GIRTH for LUNG CAPACITY
ELIGIBLE for the LUCRATIVE INGLIS RACE SERIES

Mark Holland: ‘I love this colt – great mover, great shoulder, great hip to hock, presence and power’ – GAI should have another Group horse on her hands!
Scott Darby: ”Stellar colt, impossible to fault, size, strength, athleticism’ – One of the colt’s of the year!
Steven McIvor: ‘Lovely colt with good shoulder and forearm with plenty of bone to support, excellent hindquarters, athletic quality colt with presence, super walk’ – A must have colt the pick of the sale! (Straight to Gai Waterhouse)
