CHAIRMAN’S WELCOME On behalf of the Darwin Turf Club Board of Directors I am pleased to present the 2018 Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival magazine. In this issue you’ll get an overview for each day of the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival as well as an insight into everything racing, all of the fashion and the many associated events on offer. Here at the Darwin Turf Club, we have been working around the clock to re-invent 2017’s very successful ‘Carnival of Colour’ for another year in the spotlight. Speaking with local retailers, milliners and creatives we are confident that the 2018 Carnival of Colour will be bigger and better than ever before! This time of year sees the Territory come alive. The amazing weather, tourists and the Carnival are just around the corner and this year will be the extravaganza as it has in years gone by. We welcome interstate and international VIPs, celebrities, racing identities, trainers and the media to the biggest social and sporting event in the Territory!

In the past, the Darwin Cup has played host to Australian dignitaries and racing royalty from the likes of Banjo Patterson, former Prime Minister John Howard, the late Bart Cummings, Gai Waterhouse, Scobie Breasley, Michelle Payne, Darren Gauci, Peter Moody, Hugh Bowman and Tommy Berry – just to name a few! Avid race-goers can expect the traditional 8 days of racing, starting with the HOT100 Guineas Race Day and culminating with the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Day. This year, the entertainment will be bigger and there will be more events off course. Throughout the Carnival, the Darwin Turf Club welcomes over 40,000 attendees to the track to experience the unique tropical racing that the Darwin Turf Club is famous for. As a proud Northern Territory institute committed to supporting local business in retail, accommodation and hospitality, the Carlton Mid Cup Carnival contributes a direct spend of $32 million into the Darwin economy every year.

We’re extremely proud of what the Darwin Cup has become and extend our best wishes to industry participants for the 2018 Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival, as we invite the world to enjoy the glamour, the entertainment, the incredible racing and of course the Carnival of Colour in all its glory! On behalf of the Board and staff here at the Darwin Turf Club – see you on track!

Brett Dixon Darwin Turf Club Chairman

MINISTER’S MESSAGE The Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival is an important job-creating event that boosts tourism and injects funds into the local economy.

The Territory Government is investing in a safe and sustainable industry, last year announcing a new deal to increase funding by $2.5 million per year.

This iconic festival of events contributes enormously to the Territory’s social calendar.

It’s with great pride that we see the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival continue to be a key fixture on the nation’s racing calendar, attracting racing tourists from across the country and around the world.

Natasha Fyles Minister for Racing

I acknowledge and congratulate the Darwin Turf Club Board and staff for their dedication.

The iconic celebration highlights the hard work and commitment of an industry that stretches well beyond the race track and contributes enormously to the Territory’s economy and unique lifestyle.

This year carnival goers are set to enjoy a spectacular schedule of racing and I wish everyone the very best for a safe and happy Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival.

2018 AMBASSADOR What prompted you to apply for the role of Ambassador this year? To put it simply, I live and breathe Thoroughbred racing! I’m so passionate about the exciting atmosphere and would love to be involved in bringing the next generation onto the lawns to showcase what an experience this Carnival is. You’ve been to plenty of races we’re sure, what do you think makes the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival so special? The Darwin Cup Carnival is the ultimate relaxed racing experience. In the height of the Dry Season, Darwin is buzzing with its one-of-a-kind energy and bringing that vibe track side creates an atmosphere that cannot be missed.

As for visitors, who wouldn’t want to escape the depths of winter for a long weekend including bet365 Palmerston Sprint Day, the Qantas Darwin Turf Club Gala Ball and finishing it off at the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup meeting?! Given your racing industry experience, what fresh insights will you bring to the 2018 Ambassador role? I’m hoping this year the role of Ambassador will have more of a hands-on approach and along with the Darwin Turf Club, I would love to open the public eye to the often-restricted areas including the horse stalls and training barns to promote the often missed behind the scenes of this spectacular sport and event. What excites you about this year’s Carnival of Colour theme? Carnival of Colour means no rules! Colours, texture or patterns – dare to be different and have fun putting a unique race day outfit together. I am especially looking forward to seeing the stand out one-off pieces created to compete in Silk Laser Clinics Fashions on the Field that will represent the Territory in the finals over Spring in Melbourne.

Rochelle Adams

What do you love most about living in Darwin? Residing between Darwin and Melbourne, along with constant travel for work commitments has allowed me to really appreciate Darwin’s small town feel, even amongst the 100,000 residents. On my ideal Darwin evening, you will find me sitting on Mindil Beach admiring the sunset, enjoying the vast variety of multi-cultural food and soaking up the atmosphere. Do you have a favorite race industry icon? I don’t particularly have a favourite racing icon but I admire and look up to a lot of people. Our industry can be tough, but it is full of exceptionally hard working, dedicated and passionate people. Do you have any fashion advice for racegoers this year? Comfortable shoes are a MUST! This is the one time we need to do ourselves a favour and choose comfort over fashion. Race days can mean a super long day on your feet and nobody wants to be that barefoot person carrying their shoes home at the end of the day! Interesting facts: • I have a retired ‘Off The Track’ Thoroughbred called Mr. O’Postrophe who won nine races in his career including the Yea Country Cup with myself aboard. This was my all time favourite race win! • My Grandfather was a very successful jockey in Queensland; his biggest win was the 1936 Surat Cup on a horse called Reefem. • Last year I travelled around Europe solo for 35 days visiting 10 countries and 19 cities. • I’m an avid snow skier; I love to get out onto the slopes when work permits.

The three-year-olds start the Carnival with a bang in the HOT100 Darwin Guineas. The 1600m feature for the second-season gallopers is always a hard-fought contest as the combatants vie for the lion’s share of the $75,000 prizemoney on offer, and of course, the race doubles as the vital first leg in the $100,000 Ladbrokes Triple Crown.

The gates open on this year’s Carnival of Colour, and HOT100 are here to kick off the party!

The place to be is undoubtedly the Pearl Bar. A stunning general admission champagne garden bar that will be offering a sumptuous deli selection and live music over the Carnival (see page 39 for details).

The traditional ‘family day’ of the Carnival is packed with action, with no less than seven races on the card including the $60,000 AUFS Chief Minister’s Cup over 1600m. It is a vital lead-up to the majors later in the Carnival, so it could pay to keep a close eye on the protagonists as they strut their stuff early in the eight-day extravaganza of racing.

Trackside transforms into a huge playground of endless excitement, colour and fun for all the family. Enjoy free kids entertainment, including pony rides, jumping castles, face painting and games.

ON THE TRACK Not surprisingly, the fillies and mares take centre stage on Bridge Toyota Ladies Day, with the $30,000 Rose Bowl (1300m) one of two features on the day. The other is the $50,000 Bridge Toyota Cup (1600m), which is always hotly contested as the 0-76 gallopers look to put themselves in the picture for higher honours later in the Carnival.

OFF THE TRACK It truly is a riot of colour. The crowd is dominated by thousands of stunningly dressed ladies enjoying the fun, fashion and excitement of Ladies Day. Step inside the Schweppes Pavilion to be enchanted by a delicious luncheon and an afternoon of entertainment hosted by Mix 104.9 delightfuls, Ali and Greg.

CARNIVAL OF COLOUR

THE HOW-TO GUIDE

Photos: George Fragopoulos

By Maria Kokoroyianis from Maria KoKo Designs

2

MUST HAVE

Colour! Exploring the 2018 season’s colour palette is a must for the second year of Carnival of Colour – it’s a great chance to experiment with colours you wouldn’t wear day-to-day and to really embrace the racing fashion. You will still see the classics returning this year with floral prints and lace taking to the track. There will be polka dots and block colours as well. There is good news for pant and jumpsuit lovers, we are keen to see these items make their way into the fashions! However, if you prefer the classic dress style, be sure to keep the

22

HEAD WEAR

look you opt for to be more elegant, with the midi hem lines appropriate for a race wear look. Modesty and proper in a classic pencil skirt or an A-Line style full skirt. Let’s talk shoes! Heel styles should be comfortable for a long day at the races. I suggest if buying a new pair, wear them in at home as much as you can before heading to a big day of festivities at the track! Stack heels, block heels or wedges are safer shoe designs that will hold you up for longer. Stilettos as amazing as they are; are not practical for grass.

A race day ensemble is not complete without a headpiece. A bespoke headpiece created by any of the Northern Territory’s amazing milliners will have you looking perfect on any race day – you can even commission a one-of-a-kind piece! Keep your style cohesive with your look and if you’re struggling, gold goes with basically everything! Bejewelled crowns, turbans and hats are popular again this year with the head scarf making a comeback worn in ponytails or as a headband. A fascinator is always a favourite with many ladies keeping their fashion at the races styling safe.


The Carnival of Colour is back for another year, showcasing eight days of thoroughbred racing and an amazing calendar of social events for the dry season. Local retailers are the places to shop this season, stocking all the latest trends of racing for Darwin’s unique weather. The Carnival of Colour is the perfect excuse to try something different! Here is my how-to guide on styling for the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival’s Carnival of Colour theme.

3

COLOURS OF THE SEASON

The year ahead will bring the Pantone colour of 2018 Ultraviolet Purple and welcoming the likes of its fellow top trending colours Cherry Tomato Red, Meadowlark Yellow, Palace Blue, Ash Rose, Blooming Dahlia, Nile Green, Arcadia Green and Pink Crocus to name a few! Black and white is usually for Derby Day but some ladies prefer its timeless elegance and choose to wear it on any other given race day.

4

5

It’s always a great idea to shop local. The retailers of Darwin buy for the climate and the season’s festivities rather than what’s going on in the rest of the nation.

Keep it safe in a nice pant, dress short or chino partnered up with a button up shirt – you’ll be sure to impress! Add pops of colour through a tie or pocket square if you dare.

For a unique experience and styling from locals that live and breathe Territory fashion – you won’t regret your choice to shop local! (See the list below for Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival preferred retailers)

Teamed up with a simple loafer, slip on or tie up shoe will ensure you end the day looking suave. Be sure to include a hat; a fedora or even a cowboy hat will work according to this year’s style guide.

ON THE TRACK The $135,000 Ladbrokes NT Derby, the Blue Ribbon of the Carnival for the three-year-olds, is also the second leg of the Ladbrokes Triple Crown Bonus. If the three-year-old that took out the HOT100 Guineas can claim the Derby, the only obstacle to the $100,000 bonus and a place in history is the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup. The $35,000 Weight For Age Plate (1200m), which provides ballot free entry into the bet365 Palmerston Sprint, and the $50,000 Buntine Handicap (1900m) are key testing grounds for the Carnival features, with the latter providing free entry into the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup on Day 8.

OFF THE TRACK The customary palette of black and white ensures Derby Day is one of the most stylish and contested days of the Silk Laser Clinics Fashions on the Field. The place to be seen on Ladbrokes NT Derby Day is the Pearl Bar. With free entry for all on course, this stunning alfresco enclosure offers close proximity to the finish line and elegant surrounds. A welcome home for the stylish set, the Pearl Bar will be particularly popular on Derby Day featuring relaxed live music.

HOSPITALITY OPTIONS

As the Carnival builds to a crescendo, Day 6 features the $40,000 Darwin Corporate Park Cup (1300m) for the 0-76 gallopers. The six-race Wednesday card is always well attended, and is the entrée to two enormous days of racing on the final weekend of the Carnival. For some, it may be their last start in the Top End, and for others, perhaps a lead-up to a race on either of the last two days.

A fun relaxed day of racing before the curtain is raised on Darwin’s biggest weekend.

Ted Bailey Grandstand Luncheon (air-conditioned)

Industry experts will be on course ahead of appearances at the Let’s Talk Racing Luncheon on Thursday 2nd August (see page 31). The day is capped off with live music on the lawns after the last race.

THE DYNAMIC DUO It seems as though the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree when it comes to racing identity Rob Gaylard and his daughter Casey Bruce. Gaylard is an avid ambassador of the Darwin Turf Club’s pride and joy, the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival, having attended the Cup for over 14 years with his wife, Karen. In recent years however, Casey has also attended the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup – even presenting the Fashions on the Field event! Gaylard has worked with the Victorian Racing Club for over 15 years as a respected and influential presenter in the racing industry. Now, Gaylard trains and coaches apprentice jockeys in Victoria and finds pride in seeing them achieve their racing dreams. “The highlight of being involved in the Victorian Racing Club is seeing some of the world’s most famous horses ride. There are not many people that would’ve seen Makybe Diva, Sunline, Black Caviar and Winx race in their lifetime!” said Gaylard. 56

Casey Bruce has most definitely inherited Gaylard’s passion for thoroughbred racing and perused a career in the industry from a young age. It’s been a colourful career for Bruce from starting in the industry as a stable hand, competing in equestrian, becoming a jockey to now being involved in Fashions on the Field around the country, there is no doubt that Bruce has become a racing identity in her own right. This year, Bruce was recognised for her work in racing at the Victorian Wakeful Club Lady of Racing Award finalist, alongside the likes of Victorian Racing Club Chairman, Amanda Elliott; Australian Chinese Jockey Club (ACJC) Chairperson, Teresa Poon; and Three Bridges Thoroughbreds business manager, Jackie Noonan. “To be recognised for such a prestigious and meaningful award has been a career highlight for me for sure. I’m really passionate

about women in racing and to think that I have been a part of this movement is just the best feeling” said Bruce. “We’re so incredibly proud of what Casey has done for the racing industry as a woman in a previously male driven industry” said a very proud Rob Gaylard. The family will be attending this year’s Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Carnival, attending bet365 Palmerston Sprint Day, Qantas Darwin Turf Club Gala Ball and the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup Day. “It’s an honour to be a part of such a great event in the Top End. To have had the opportunity to host the finals of the Fashions on the Field as last year’s Cup was truly incredible” said jockey turned race day presenter, Casey Bruce. “The Carnival is definitely an event for everyone’s bucket list – if you haven’t attended yet be sure to get to the track this year!” Gaylard added.

2017 CARLTON MID DARWIN CUP CARNIVAL

FEATURE RACE WINNERS $70,000 HOT100 Darwin Guineas

$50,000 Bridge Toyota Cup

Owners: P W Jones, N Tefanis & B L Malady Trainer: Stephen Brown, Flemington Jockey: Paul Denton Breeding: 3 g Sebring – Upper Crust (Octagonal (NZ)) Master horseman Paul Denton, some 24 years after winning his first Darwin Guineas, bagged his third victory in the 3yo feature when combining with the Stephen Brown-trained visitor Krusty. Denton first won the race aboard Ken’s Choice way back in 1993, and also scored with Edge To Edge ten years later. Brown, himself a legend of Top End racing but nowadays based in Victoria, had saddled up his first Guineas winner four years previously when Host Of The Party saluted. The two Darwin Hall of Famers combined to produce Krusty for a sensational last-to-first win over the 1600m of the Guineas. Sky Muster and Inwood led in the early and middle stages, before the latter took over with about 600m to run. He was soon joined and headed by So Poysed, who looked poised for victory, only to succumb to the barnstorming finish of Krusty in the shadows of the post. At the line, Krusty, who was giving the leaders upwards of eight lengths on the home turn, had a narrow margin to spare over So Poysed, with Inwood a game third and the unlucky Billet Doux almost in line fourth. It was a thrilling climax to the Day 1 feature and augured well for some superb racing over the next seven days of Carnival action.

Owners: S E Arnold, A Rehberg & T Lillis Trainer: Sheila Arnold, Kyneton Jockey: Paul Shiers Breeding: 5 g Fastnet Rock – Unusual Choice (Redoute’s Choice) A winner on the opening day of the Carnival 11 days previously, Quantum Dot continued his love affair with Top End racing when outlasting a game One Faster in the Day 2 feature, the Bridge Toyota Cup. One Faster went to the front from barrier rise and set up a two-length lead from fellow market leaders Quantum Dot and Arctic Song, with Cadman and Spartan Eagle next. The pressure began to be applied with 600m to go when Paul Shiers let Quantum Dot stride forward to share the lead approaching the home turn, but Brendon Davis on One Faster had other ideas and found a length at the 300m mark. The pair then settled down for a tooth and nail struggle over the final 200m, with the result still uncertain until the last two strides when Quantum Dot, on the outer, just got the better of his rival to win by a head. Hammered Art came from well back to grab third, three and a-quarter lengths back, and just in front of Spartan Eagle, who fought on gallantly. Trained by Territory icon Sheila Arnold, Quantum Dot had made his presence felt the previous year in the Top End, scoring three wins and grabbing three seconds and a third placing from nine starts, and his early form in Darwin in 2017 was almost a carbon copy of the year before.

Owners: N J Dyer, G Quilty, Mrs Y E Gill, Mrs A E Morris, Mrs P E Slingsby, K R Slingsby, P M Greene, Mrs K E Greene, R J Palmer, L Evans, C Newnham, R M Crowley, N J Scotton, Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Brittain Racing, P J Mahony, Mrs A Mahony, J D Mahony & A E Coady Trainer: Neil Dyer, Kyneton Jockey: Jarrod Todd Breeding: 6 g Bel Esprit – Nassidarra (NZ) (Nassipour (USA)) Aided by a brilliant, patient ride by Jarrod Todd, Royal Request signaled his readiness for a sparkling Cup Carnival campaign with a come-from-behind victory in the AUFS Chief Minister’s Cup. Neil Dyer’s six-year-old was allowed to find his feet from the outset of the 1600m, and had just two behind him on settling, with stablemate Action Again and South Australian Abu Dhabi at the head of affairs. That pair led the field approaching the home turn but it was soon evident that the trip would be beyond Action Again, and Abu Dhabi went for home with a nice break. He was pursued by Harrebs Time and Whistle Stop, with Pretty Blonde out wider and Royal Request becoming prominent between horses closer to the inside. With 100m left to run, Abu Dhabi began to shorten stride and the chasing pack descended, with Royal Request proving the strongest in a blanket finish. Such was the strength of his finishing effort, Royal Request hit the line with three-quarters of a-length to spare from the fast-finishing Whistle Stop, with Pretty Blonde an eye-catching third a head away. Abu Dhabi held on for fourth a half-neck back, and just in front of Harrebs Time. It was a tremendous finish to the Day 2 feature and a pointer of things to come for the Kyneton-trained son of Bel Esprit.

Owners: Ms J Heaney, Miss A Wilson, S A Wilson, R M Hooper, A J Tonkin, Mrs C H Holton, R S Holton, G V Richards, T Lillis, P N U (Mgr: G McIntosh) & Island Gold Diggers (Mgr: K Heaney) Trainer: Sheila Arnold, Kyneton Jockey: Paul Shiers Breeding: 3 g Al Maher – Note D’amour (IRE) (Rainbow Quest (USA)) Arguably the unlucky runner in the Guineas a fortnight previously, Billet Doux made amends in breathtaking fashion when bolting home in the Ladbrokes NT Derby to give rider Paul Shiers his fifth Top End Blue Riband. After Jarrod Todd set a farcical early speed in the 2000m feature aboard Threepeat, Shiers bided his time until about 650m from home when he gave Billet Doux his head. Sheila Arnold’s son of Al Maher quickly reeled in the leaders and had taken over at the head of affairs on the point of the home turn. From there it was a victory procession, Shiers keeping his mount up to his work to hit the line with four lengths to spare from a game Cha Chang, who had tracked the speed from the outset, with Helstar three and a-quarter lengths away third after sitting three-wide for most of the journey. Guineas winner Krusty, a victim of the slow pace, could never get into a winning position and ran past beaten runners to take fourth, with Threepeat battling into fifth. Arnold was left to rue what might have been in the Guineas, but there was no doubting Billet Doux’s class in as easy a Derby win as had been seen in recent years in the Top End.


$50,000 Sky Racing Metric Mile

$135,000 bet365 Palmerston Sprint

Owners: N J Dyer, G Quilty, Mrs Y E Gill, Mrs A E Morris, Mrs P E Slingsby, K R Slingsby, P M Greene, Mrs K E Greene, R J Palmer, L Evans, C Newnham, R M Crowley, N J Scotton, Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Brittain Racing, P J Mahony, Mrs A Mahony, J D Mahony & A E Coady Trainer: Neil Dyer, Kyneton Jockey: Jarrod Todd Breeding: 6 g Bel Esprit – Nassidarra (NZ) (Nassipour (USA)) Royal Request showed his undoubted class when completing the second leg of the big three Top End middle-distance contests with a facile win in the Sky Racing Metric Mile. With regular rider Jarrod Todd in the saddle, Royal Request was allowed to settle down at the rear in the 1600m contest as veteran Spartan Eagle called the tune. The latter was joined at the 650m mark by War Story and Pretty Blonde, who was set alight by Jason Lyon at the turn off the back straight, while Todd bided his time on the fence at the tail. As the home turn loomed, Spartan Eagle assumed control again and Kayla Cross sent him well clear on straightening, but Harrebs Time and Royal Request, both of whom stayed on the inside rather than make their runs out wider, were threatening danger. With 150m to go, Spartan Eagle still clung to a lead but it was clear that Royal Request was the horse with all the momentum, and with Todd barely moving a muscle, he swept by and hit the line threequarters of a-length to the good of a very brave Spartan Eagle, with Harrebs Time third a long head back. The rest were well beaten off, with Pretty Blonde, after her bold mid-race move, weakening on her run in the straight to take fourth. Royal Request’s performance was clearly that of a horse that would prove extremely hard to beat in the big one nine days later.

Owners: G P Stewart, B J Fitzpatrick, Mrs A E Stewart, R Jenner, R I Hollitt, T D Tschirpig & G D Lefoe Trainer: Garry Lefoe Jnr, Darwin Jockey: Raymond Vigar Breeding: 5 g Nicconi – Chocaholic (General Nediym) First emergency Niccoco, having just his fourth Top End start, gave Garry Lefore Jnr his biggest win as a trainer when storming home late to take out the bet365 Palmerston Sprint. With last year’s Cup-winning jockey Raymond Vigar in the saddle, Niccoco began well from the outside barrier but was unable to get any closer than four wide in the run. There was speed aplenty at the top, with Ticket To Toorak, Le Commandant and Captain Punch all prominent, and it was the latter who assumed control as the field swung off the back straight. Richie Oakford set his mount alight at this point and he rounded the home turn with a break of some four lengths over his pursuers. Captain Punch still held a handy advantage with 200m to run but Niccoco, despite having covered a ton of extra ground, kept on coming in the centre of the track and in a stirring finish to the feature, he got the measure of Captain Punch close to the line to win by an ever-widening length. Captain Punch was a gallant second just a neck in front of the fast-finishing He’s Our Woody, with Ticket To Toorak and Cadman the next pair to finish. Lefoe Jnr, a former prominent Alice Springs jockey, had only had his trainer’s license for some 12 months and not surprisingly, he was ecstatic at the result, all the more so as Niccoco was ridden by Lefoe’s good mate Vigar.

AUSSIE JACK

Owners: K Healy, C Greenfield, Miss H Nunn, J Nunn, E Nunn, Mrs G Nunn, S Jameson, Mrs R Jameson, N Atkinson, J Drefke, S Tehan, C Sayers, D Bown, T Cagliuso & D Petherick Trainer: Kym Healy, Strathalbyn Jockey: Raymond Vigar Breeding: 5 g Spinning World (USA) – Duel Command (Commands) Aussie Jack, in the colours made famous by Kym Healy’s wonderful mare Pretty Blonde, enjoyed a little of the spotlight himself when a thrilling winner of the Darwin Corporate Park Cup. Ridden by the 2016 Darwin Cup-winning jockey Raymond Vigar, Aussie Jack trailed a solid speed set by Poet’s Choice, Iceflow and One Faster in the 1300m event, and was within striking distance of the leaders on the home turn. One Faster, who was forced to sit three wide throughout, gave ground before the home turn and it was Poet’s Choice and Iceflow who turned into the straight on terms. Soon after, Iceflow, with Stephen Ridler in the saddle, took control and with 200m left to run, he looked to have an unassailable four-length lead. However, with 100m left to go, Aussie Jack and the Neil Dyer stablemates Rakititi and Pot Black began to loom large and in a tremendous finish, it was Aussie Jack who got in the deciding stride to down Iceflow by a short head, thus denying trainer Greg Connor of back-to-back wins in the Day 6 feature, having won in 2016 with Le Commandant. Rakitiki was a good third three-quarters of a-length away, and just in front of Pot Black.

$200,000 Carlton Mid Darwin Cup

ROYAL REQUEST

Owners: N J Dyer, G Quilty, Mrs Y E Gill, Mrs A E Morris, Mrs P E Slingsby, K R Slingsby, P M Greene, Mrs K E Greene, R J Palmer, L Evans, C Newnham, R M Crowley, N J Scotton, Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Brittain Racing, P J Mahony, Mrs A Mahony, J D Mahony & A E Coady Trainer: Neil Dyer, Kyneton Jockey: Jarrod Todd Breeding: 6 g Bel Esprit – Nassidarra (NZ) (Nassipour (USA)) Royal Request became just the second horse to win the Chief Minister’s Cup, Metric Mile and Darwin Cup in the same year when a decisive and emotional winner of the big one on the first Monday in August. Some 12 years after Lanson completed the “big three”, Royal Request was in a class of his own right throughout the 2017 Cup Carnival. Trained by Neil Dyer, the man who prepared champion Hawks Bay for two Cup wins, and ridden by former New Zealand jockey Jarrod Todd, Royal Request’s Cup win was something to behold. After Todd allowed his mount to find his feet early as the pace was set by War Story and Saturday Sorcerer, he made his move with about 700m to run, firstly making ground outside a tiring Whistle Stop before angling back to the fence and saving many lengths along the inside as the field made its way towards the home turn. At that point, Saturday Sorcerer had the lead chased by Harrebs Time, Unbreakable, Abu Dhabi and Lieder, but when Todd angled his mount into the clear just after straightening, the result was as good as over. Royal Request quickly made up the leeway and strode clear over the final 100m to win by three lengths from a gallant Saturday Sorcerer, with Lieder close up third ahead of Harrebs Time, Billet Doux and Abu Dhabi. Afterwards, both Dyer and Todd paid tribute to the late Roger Booth, who had been an integral part of the stable until suffering a fatal heart attack on 1 July at Fannie Bay.

LADBROKES

TRIPLE CROWN BONUS

Will this be the year the crown is claimed?

The Territory’s ultimate piece of silverware has to be the Ladbrokes Triple Crown. This highly coveted bonus scheme offers a $100,000 cherry on top, for the thoroughbred that within the space of the Carnival, takes out the HOT100 Darwin Guineas, the Ladbrokes NT Derby and the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup.

Many of the stars of our sport make the journey from around Australia to Fannie Bay, chasing over half a million in prize money over the three races along with the publicity and prestige of the Ladbrokes Triple Crown. A lot to ask of a young horse, the Guineas is a race for three-year-olds only, and in the Carlton Mid Darwin Cup the Triple Crown Contender must go up against tried champions.

This explains why the Triple Crown has very rarely been claimed. Only twice in Darwin Turf Club history has a horse managed a victory in all three legs – in 1989 it went to Brinney and 1996 Ventilago was crowned. In recent history The Ruffian (2011) came close. It has been 22 years since the last horse claimed the Triple Crown, perhaps in 2018 a fourth chapter will be added to the record books! 63
