Autumn Racing Carnival - Week 8

Yesterday Randwick race course in Sydney hosted two Group 1 races, The Galaxy and the Chipping Norton stakes. Both races were won by relative outsiders, with Typhoon Zed winning the Galaxy and Casino Prince taking out the Chipping Norton.

However, Musket scored his second win in a row in an unlisted race at Randwick. He's a three quarter brother to the great mare Makybe Diva, so is one to watch in the future.

Tomorrow the focus is on the Gold Coast Magic Millions meeting. The race for 2 year old fillies looks interesting and I am curious to see who will be the winner. Class fillies, Sugar Babe, She's Meaner, Black Minx and Augusta Proud (love the name) will be competing in a field of 14.

Next Saturday sees the running of the Randwick Guineas for three year olds. Weekend Hussler will be making his Sydney debut. Let's hope he can run straighter than Haradasun did last year, who despite this tendency won two Group One races.
