    The daughter of 2013 Melbourne Cup winner Fiorente has won the Group 3 South Australian Fillies Classic (2500m) at MASSIVE odds - it paid $195.30 on the WA Tote.

    Also amazing was Chris Waller training a better than 25/1 place getter in the Queensland Oaks, and the second horse paid better than 35/1 a place!

    The Waller trained runner Lady Cuvée 3rd was around $160 on tote and the runner up around $250!

    Remarkably - if you read their form it's not too bad. The favoured runners in the race went terribly. Very rarely would a Chris Waller trained horse not have some chance in a main race and Lady Cuvée was no exception.

    The runner up at 250/1 was not far off winning. It's recent form was ok. The dividends blew up the tote board!

    Believe it if you will however someone boxed the numbers of the oaks trifecta for 10 units, costing $60.

    The trifecta in nsw paid 10k. So received over 100k back for $60

    The other states paid at least 10 times that for obvious reasons so it looks to be true.

    How they boxed those 3 numbers I couldn't tell you.

    Amazing! Was looking at the divs across the three tote's but too many numbers to take in and missed that.

    He/she needed a national tote pool. ( With lesser takeout rate of course ).

    In the Oaks had the winner in Quinella's with the three fave's...saw the Damian Oliver horse gonski - and then thought ok where are the other two - lost back in the pack.

    It's probably just me but still reckon fave's start way too short in several races, reason being so many tipsters on tv/radio/net - and its mostly the fancies being backed more heavily than ever, with the reality being there actually enormous risks!

    Princess Jenni acted like her name suggests. The tricky barrier meant Ollie had to go forward to get in-she never settled from that point on. Went ok all things considered. Winner too good.

    Melbourne Cup worth $8m
    Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy 9:09am O
    ,(
    The Melbourne Cup is back as being the richest race of the week of spring racing at Flemington with the race worth $8 million this November.

    In a clear response to Racing NSW’s move on Flemington’s spring territory with the inaugural $7.5 million Golden Eagle (1500m) to be run at Rosehill on Victoria Derby day, the increase of just $700,000 on last year’s purse ensures the world’s richest handicap remains the country’s richest race for the first week of November.

    Victoria Racing Club chair Amanda Elliott told the Herald Sun the Melbourne Cup remains the race participants desire most.

    "It is the race every Australian owner, trainer and jockey wants to win, and internationally, has become one of the most sought-after prizes in world racing," she said.

    Elliott also took aim at Racing NSW’s $14 million The Everest – which is to be run on Caulfield Cup day.

    "Connections cannot buy a place in the Lexus Melbourne Cup, it has to be earned."

    Melbourne Cup weights: It's now harder for Europeans to win
    Ben Dorries

    After rolling out the Melbourne Cup red carpet for international raiders for many years, Victorian officials are now making it harder for northern hemisphere three-year-olds to win the great race.

    Racing Victoria's Executive General Manager of Racing Greg Carpenter has revealed an “extensive and exhaustive review” means northern hemisphere three-year-olds will “automatically be more highly weighted (in the Melbourne Cup) in 2019.”

    Joseph O’Brien and Charlie Appleby have hit upon a winning formula with the past two Melbourne Cup winners Rekindling and Cross Counter, both European three-year-olds when they won the famous handicap in 2017 and 2018.

    Rekindling carried 51.5kg while last year’s winner Cross Counter carried 51kg.

    But Carpenter says those results have forced a rethink.

    “We have done an extensive and exhaustive review of the weight-for-age scale in Europe and in Australia,” Carpenter told ABC Radio.

    “Victoria Racing Club and the Melbourne Racing Club, with the Melbourne and Caulfield Cups this year, have actually altered the benchmark weight for these northern hemisphere three-year-olds.

    “So they will actually automatically be more highly weighted in 2019.

    “I need to have a look at the success rate of these horses now and make a judgment on – other than the implementation of a higher weight-for-age weight for them – whether or not their form also needs additional weight.

    “We don’t stand still when we provide the handicaps for the Melbourne Cup, it's an evolving art, but certainly on the results of the last two years with Rekindling and Cross Counter there has been a review and a change to the way we treat northern hemisphere three-year-olds in the Melbourne and Caulfield Cups going forward.”

    Carpenter told the ABC it could also impact the entire Australian racing industry and they way it treats European three-year-olds.

    “We have put forward a proposal to Racing Australia to change the allowances under the Australian Rules Of Racing and the weight-for-age scale so that northern hemisphere three-year-olds are not more generously treated here in Australia than they would be if they were actually racing on the same day over the same distance in Europe,” he said.
