Horses To Follow (NSW) - Blackbookers from Saturday's New South Wales racing

  • Blackbookers to catch the eye in NSW
  • Our latest horses to follow from Sydney racing

Saturday racing in New South Wales produces several blackbookers to take forward into coming weeks and we pick out the best each week.

From winners of feature races to unlucky loses and first up gallopers outrunning expectations, we select three or four horses each week to add to your blackbook from New South Wales' Saturday racing.

Here are some horses to put in your blackbook: 

Horses to follow from Rosehill Gardens on December 8

The Chris Waller-trained filly made it two from two as she went from a maiden victory over 1250m on the Kensington track to a fast-finishing victory over 1400m at Rosehill. The daughter of Medaglia D’oro settled rearward and was too strong late running her final 200m in 11.22 which was approximately three lengths quicker than the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed runners. It was the second quickest final 200m of the day which was only bettered by Viceroy who ran a final split of 11.14 in the ATC Member’s Sprint (1100m). She’s a filly going places and can be trusted over 1400m to 1600m next time. 

Trainers Peter and Paul Snowden should have their Smart Missile gelding spot on for a 1400m race next time following two runs this time in. He resumed over 1300m and worked home strongly to be beaten 3.4 lengths behind Cradle Mountain, and then he sprouted wings late on Saturday to just miss behind Irithea who had pinched a break on the turn. He clocked 11.01 from the 400m to the 200m and then went 11.60 for his final 200m. Although most runners decreased by approximately three lengths in their final 200m due to the leader forcing them to chase early, Smartedge still has some upside and should be stronger through the line next time over the same trip.

If you’re not scrutinising the sectionals, you may have missed this one, and hopefully we can get a nice price when Viceroy goes around next time. He didn’t appreciate being restrained from the outside gate, and when jockey Blake McDougall got him in with cover, he was in last place and probably thought he was in a barrier trial. McDougall tried to stoke him up before the bend, but he wasn’t responding, but a few cuts with the shillelagh put his mind on the job and he really started to put in. He clocked the quickest final 600m on the day (0:32.51) and was strong through the line clocking the quickest final 200m. That was his first run back from a 22-week break, and he’s sure to take improvement into his next run. A better barrier can see him ridden more forward which will give him every chance to get home over the top of them. 


Horses to follow from Rosehill on December 1

This is a Godolphin 2YO, well-bred and highly gifted. And it seems we just keep seeing one of of these every weekend. This filly is a half-sister to the extra smart stakes winner Savatiano, and when she saw dayligfht in this, she just went bang, finishing the race off like a shot from a rifle. Looks very strong and will be one of the star juveniles.

I really like this bloke. He keeps improving every start and has a deadly turn of foot. He is big and strong and can settle early, then reel off fast late sectionals which he did here to win drawing away keeping his unbeaten record in tact. We will hear more of this bloke.

Former super fast galloper on the comeback trail. And despite being anchored by the big weight where, in a strong field, he moved up to win the race at the 300m. Only his condition, having been away from racing for a fair while, prevented him winning in the end. Should strip many lengths fitter going into the summer.

Horses to follow from Rosehill on November 24

Terrific run at first start. Hard to make this call this far out but did we just see the 2019 Golden Slipper winner? Hmmm, maybe. Certainly appears the best juvenile seen this year. Sat behind a hot tempo in a field of highly rated colts, then shouldered his way through once they straightened, and simply exploded away to win as he liked. He is the little brother to Gr 1 winners Astern and Alizee and certainly has their talent.

Was resuming from a spell here and was heavily backed indicating stable confidence. And it wasn't ill-founded. She sat behind the speed and still hasn't got out. Never saw daylight, climbed all over their backs down the running and still ran 4th in BM 88. Will win next run.

This was some sort of effort. At only his 5th race start, he was up against an all aged field of BM 78 graders, and he was coming off a narrow maiden win. Was gone at the 200m but lifted late to win most impressively. Might be a stayer in the making of some note.
