No Worries Blitzes Joburg Spring Challenge

Galileo Denied: Igugu Upheld

If you've never raced at Longchamp or Chantilly, you should do it: if our sport can ever be described as 'genteel”, it's the French flavour at these two courses, that makes it so. From a purists perspective, the only thing that detracts from the delirium of a day at the French races, is their objection rule.

Treve Scores Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Double

Sent off at odds of 14-1 that would have been scarcely believable 12 months ago, Al Shaqab Racing’s Treve (Fr) (Motivator {GB}) once again turned Longchamp’s G1 Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe into a procession to become only the seventh horse to win the great race twice, and the first since Alleged in 1978.

Keeneland September... One Hot Property

In a week in which the financial world was sending out SOS signals from the Scottish referendum, lower job numbers in the States and a battling Rand, if you’d been at the Keeneland ringside in Kentucky yesterday, you’d be forgiven for believing it was a county of the moon.
