That was close, but Hasselhoof did it again.

Time for the Makfi! I really can't pick this. I won't be surprised if any of Turn Me Loose, Kawi, Addictive Habit, Vespa, Pondarosa Miss, Whosyourmaster, Puccini, Soriano or Ryan Mark win it.

Beautiful win. Congrats to Kawi and all of his people.

Huge performances as well from Ryan Mark (I'm pretty sure his trip was the worst of anyone in the race), Ginner Hart (!!), Turn Me Loose, Vespa, Addictive Habit.

It'll be nice to be back at Ellerslie for the new season this weekend, but Wanganui has the more interesting day with two stakes races for 3yos.

Finding it difficult to catch up and keep up with so many nice fields and wins so for now will just say have a great time at Ellerslie and oh, Kidnapped... that was wonderful to see!

I'm flying to Venice in a couple of weeks and, after a few days there, will be on a cruise (small and very nice ship... Venice to Rome. Yay!) and then a few days in Rome and so will miss things like the Livamol Classic... if there are any NZ racing apps you can recommend (I am not planning on being online more than once or twice but hey, this is important )...

Thanks, ed and please wave to Pump Up the Volume for me tomorrow!

Wow, that sounds amazing. I hope you have a great time!

Unfortunately NZ Racing isn't very up to date in terms of apps and smartphone technology. But our Informant website is mobile-friendly at least, which should let you see results etc.

Aw, poor Eric. I would have loved to see him hold on.

Secret Spirit stunning at Wanganui.

Alcaldesa at 50-1!

I wrote the story yesterday about her confident trainer... but I didn't bet her.

Yeah, I hope he gets better soon.

A super field for the Breeders' Stakes at Ruakaka on Saturday. G1 winners Dal Cielo and Marky Mark, plus exciting horses like The Justice League and Xtravagant.

Ruakaka was simply amazing today. It turned out to be a busy day with almost every race worth writing about, but I'm so glad I was there.

Terrible about the weather and the Windsor Park Plate but oh... just looked at the few results there were and Authentic Paddy? Really? That is pretty cool!

It was really sad to lose that great day yesterday. It was the right call, but so disappointing. At least the Gold Trail will be added to the October 3 card and the Windsor Park Plate has been rescheduled for later that month.

Nice racing at Avondale yesterday. So great to see Chris Dell back.

Leaving for my beautiful cruise, ed... lovely Wind Star ship and beginning by sailing down the Grand Canal in Venice... very excited. I WILL check the Informant once or twice, especially to see who wins next weekend. (Oooh and I just now saw the Soriano piece. Exciting!!!).

Have a beautiful couple of weeks, ed, and stay safe, good horsies.

I am listening to Citizen Erased and just finished packing... off to bed. See ya in a couple of weeks!

Thanks again for the Xcellent part in the link you posted. It is just very good to hear his name again (especially since it's frustrating not being able to find anything at all)!

I hope you're having a great time.

Secret Spirit, what a filly. Four stakes wins in a row.
