It was a great weekend in horse racing betting if you were following onlyracing’s Saturday racing tips and best bets tips and we take a look at a couple that I missed out on covering who got the chocolates in the biggest races across our betting sites.
Snowden’s latest import Tazaral wins huge
The Snowden’s had a huge Saturday at Randwick and have set their sights on bigger races for their latest import Tazaral off the back of their beautiful win. The well bred galloper would have landed some big bets across the aussie betting sites and unfortunately our Saturday racing tips didn’t have him.
He’s one of the most well bred runners in the Country with his dam being the dam of two Group 1 race winners in Tarnawa, a three time G1 winner and Tahiyra who took out this year’s Coronation Stakes and the Irish 1000 Guineas.
"It's some family, it's very good," Peter Snowden said.
Snowden continued on to praise his prospects, "He's only lightly raced so I think there's more upside and it was good to see him do that today and go right on with it."
Tazaral clearly took this race out in style well above that of the field (BM78) after setting at the rear of the field and just bounding along he weaved a passage and motored away from the field in the straight.
"That was good to see. He was decisive," Snowden said. "He didn't just win, he came right away."
Snowden says for now the primary goal is moving Tazaral through the Benchmark grades to increase his rating so when the right race pops up he will be ready for it. I will share to cover him the next time he runs in my best bets tips!
Coco Sun remains undefeated for Tony McEvoy
Tony McEvoy could have a future Group 1 races star on his hands with the undefeated filly Coco Sun who won his fifth consecutive race in the Oaklands Plate at Morphettville Parks on Saturday and got the listed win under his belt.
The two-year-old is right at the beginning of her career after an impressive win on debut in Geelong before continuing to make her way through the grades and just keep winning impressively.
Ben Price gave her a peach but I suspect this smart filly doesn’t require too much reading brilliance as she bounded onto the speed and he kept her one off before motoring over the odds on favourite in the race in the straight to seemingly put them away with something in hand.
We didn’t cover Morphettville Parks this past weekend in our Free horse racing tips but I think that she will be out of South Australia soon enough and once she gets out onto our major tracks you will be sure to see her pop up in our best bets articles.
Sunsource saved from the snip by Olives
The Busuttin and Young trained Sunsource promised to be a star and, in the words of his trainers, “has always shown ability this horse, just the last couple of runs been a bit switched off”. However that all turned around this past weekend when leading jockey Damien Oliver hopped aboard for the ride in the 1800m Byerley handicap at Flemington racecourse this past weekend.
Earlier in the week the stable were (somewhat) jokingly saying that if he didn’t show up again this week he would be on his way for a trip to the Vet for the Gelding process. However, it seems that between Damien Oliver “bully him (Sunsource) a little bit seemed to work” and the “blinkers on made him a bit more genuine." seemed to really put things together as he smartly took out that race at Flemington.
We had him as our next best bet of the day at Flemington in our Saturday racing tips for the course and I was ever so happy for the stable and the horse to see him go over.
Young has since said that the Caulfield Guineas could be a Spring option for him but Damien Oliver suggested getting out further in distance could aid the horses cause.
I would have to agree with that based on this Weekend’s win as he looked to have plenty more to offer when crossing the line.
