what is your greatest australian cup moment?
of course it lonhro for me.
What a champ blacky was but didn't beat much and was suspect over the 2000. Unbeatable at 1600 WFA in Sydney though.
I do agree with you crusher but the black flash just had a racing style of his own.
almost unbeatable in Syd in those smallish WFA fields. Very good horse not a champion for mine. No majors - no Doncaster and no Cox Plate (is More Joyous gonna be in the same boat ?).....The champions win those races imo. Better Loosen Up's Australian Cup romp after his Japan Cup win has to be right up there with the best......" this is a champion, Better Loosen Up, hail the new champ.....6 lengths ! ". He was unbeatable that season and most probably the best horse in the world at the time. Octagonal winning in his final racing campaign was another highlight
For mine it would have to be Roman Arch back in 2006.Got tipped the horse 2 weeks earlier but it was scr so when it bobbed up in the Australia cup @ $85 i couldn't resist.....
Bonecrusher nailing At Talag in 1987. Bill Collins call, amazing
yes i agree with all your comments he wasnt an out & out champion but i had an affiliation with him that you get with your favorite horses the likes of kingstontown and scilachi, family of man, might and power,the list goes on and on.
sorry about the misspelling.
The way he won the Australia cup made him a champion in my eyes. He didn't just win a big WFA race he did it after having his runs checked a number times and still managed too fire up and fly the last 100. My all time favorite race and call
yes nsecca05 yes its my fav.
i dont know about didnt beat much either u will here the names Makybe Diva and Elvstroem in there. 2 handy horses
Saintlyblowing them away like he did every time he stepped out at flemington!! l know lonhro was a champ in his own right' but he did beat delzao in that aust cup guys.
Zipping! Was headed and fought back to win, loved it!
