Got It


It has been something we haven’t seen in Sydney for over five month but with weather conditions changing are we finally about to see horse racing at Royal Randwick take place on a dry track this weekend

Royal Randwick set for Dry Track Conditions

Racing in Sydney could finally take place on a dry track this weekend with a lack of rain expected in the Harbour City which will allow chance for the Randwick track to dry to the point of near Good track conditions.

We have to travel back to Saturday January 29th to find the last time that racing took place on a dry track where the race day started in Good 4 conditions and then tightened to a Good 3 after three races.

The lucky ones to see a dry track on that occasion was when Bjorn Baker trained Overpass beat home Forbidden Love and Anamoe in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes.

That day in January was the last time we had a full race day on a Good track in Sydney. However we did see some dry conditions on Apollo Stakes day before the track was downgraded to soft range before the finish of the race. 

Now, the coming weekend seems as good as any for a return to Good racing conditions with an extended rain free period expected and with the Randwick track already in the low Soft range there is every chance we could get to Good by Saturday.

Saturday sees the Bob Charley AO Stakes as the headline act for racing at Sydney’s HQ and has attracted 13 nominations so far with entries being extended until Tuesday morning for any potential late suitors. 

A winner last time out, Surreal Step could line up where he’s likely to again face Much Much Better and Mr Mosaic.

Bjorn Baker gave Prime Candidate his chance in last week’s Moreton Cup in Queensland and is giving him the chance to back up on Saturday while Kris Lees could have two with The Bopper and Enchanted Heart both nominated.
