This Weekend in Racing: Legends Collide

Dec 11, 2020


It’s time to start buying yearlings for your team in your Racing League stable and we would like you to join us at the Magic Millions sales on the Gold Coast.

The world famous Magic Millions Sales begin January 12, with the sale of feature horses concluding on Saturday night the 16th of January.

While it’s all business for the TRL bloodstock team finding the best possible yearlings to buy, there’s an opportunity to meet your fellow teammates at one or two key events on the Gold Coast.

Don’t forget you will soon have to vote for which horses end up in your team so any insights obtained may prove an invaluable advantage come decision time.


Please help us plan for what will be a wonderful time by clicking here to share your expression of interest.


Champion trainers from around Australia are chasing your VOTE to be part of The Racing League.

It went to a new level this week, when two legends collided in country Victoria.

Our Vic Husslers ambassador, AFL legend Shane Crawford received a phone call from the all conquering Peter Moody of Black Caviar fame.

In an hilarious exchange, Crawford grilled Moody on why a Queenslander should be able to train for the Vic Husslers.

The Villiers

It’s Villiers Day at Royal Randwick on Saturday and as we like to say it’s a good horses race.

Meaning while it’s only a Group Two it still takes a good horse to win a Villiers staged over the famous Randwick Mile.

There’s a stack of chances in a wide open race, but it’s hard to go past Outrageous from the Hawkes yard, who’s coming off wins at Rosehill and Flemington from his last two starts.



One of the great characters of the turf will be honoured at Saturday’s Royal Randwick meeting.

Pat Webster, is a long way from being the most famous name in racing, but he’s close to the most liked and respected.

Better known more recently as the trainer of Happy Clapper, Pat has been a trainer at Randwick for nearly 50 years.

Happy Clapper is the only horse in the long history of Sydney racing to win the three major Royal Randwick miles – The Star Doncaster, TAB Epsom and Villiers Stakes, along with being runner-up to Winx in five Group races.


Arguably the best sprinter in the world and an Australian favourite Classique Legend will be the centre of the attention in the Hong Kong Sprint at Sha Tin on Sunday.

Some would say barrier one is an awkward draw for the Everest champion, but he remains a first favourite and will only need an ounce of luck in the straight to be winning.

The major threat is local sprinter Hot King Prawn, trained by John Size who’s has drawn gate five.

During the week Hong Kong based Aussie Zac Purton  won the rich international jockey’s challenge at Happy Valley just edging out arch rival Joe Moreira.


Racing returns to Flemington on Saturday after a short break and the surface is predicted to be perfect.

The Hawkes stable looks like they’ve picked up a pretty handy galloper in Bandersnatch. His last start win was his first run for the Hawkes team and he was super impressive.

Young Will Price keeps the ride and he only news some luck over the final stages to prove way too good for these.

Good Luck
