Default New Zealand Racing, 2015-16

New thread - it's the first day of the new season!

And it's got off to a nice start, with a good win by The Czar in the first 3yo race down at Riccarton today. He didn't seem to know what he was doing, but he was too good anyway.

Maybe a 2000 Guineas horse?

Trainer Mike Breslin - "It would be nice to be back here in November."

Ooh, and very nice from Amarula at Ruakaka. Three in a row for him now. Close relative to Sir Slick, Little Wonder and Puccini.

Timy Tyler wins the Winter Cup at 47-1!

I did not expect that at all, but it's a huge win for the little guys which is always great to see.

Fantastic performances from Weissmuller, Scapolo and Rising Romance's little brother Romelo earlier in the card.

Have not yet seen any replays... just looked over results and then read your piece on the AMAZING Jacob Lowry and will watch all of them later but whoa... the stuff of dreams. Happy that my girl was 2nd but really... what a fantastic upset. Cannot wait to watch ALL replays.

Again, happy birthday to all horses today and happy new thread!

Did not realize that and boy do I love him now. Why on earth did I not know or remember that about Little Wonder?!

Scapalo... haha "he got out and went BANG!" THAT WAS NUTS!

Overjoyed watching Weissmuller win!

Oh Illuminati... what can I say... such heart and I mean have you ever seen one try sooo hard? Beautiful for the connections and it's all thrilling but oh... if it weren't so completely sensational that one would have hurt.

Nicely done, Timy.

Fantastic racing!

Exciting to see so many of them together (and also reading the Vespa and Graphic updates).
