TAREN POINT, New South Wales – Chris Waller remarked that he is confident that Subpoenaed could win at the 2020 Stradbroke Handicap. For this upcoming horse race, his charge is presently a $51-chance on Tab.com.au. Waller has never won the Stradbroke Handicap. The champion trainer has flagged the bay-coloured filly as a possible improver who could be victorious in the Queensland competition slated on Saturday, June 6. The Stradbroke Handicap for this year will take place in Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse. The winning team will take home $1.5 million in cash prize, as per the information posted on Australian horse betting tips and news website JustHorseRacing.com.au.
Waller pointed out that his stable’s potential racehorses for the 1,350-metre sporting event are sprinters that would require enhancement. In this way, they could win the 2020 Stradbroke Handicap, he said. The master racehorse trainer added that maybe a mare like Sweet Scandal or a filly like Subpoenaed could be the two racehorses that might shoot through behind schedule. Also, Waller described both of these gallopers as to be competing quite well. The trainer of the three-year-old daughter of Notice Received and Rip Van Winkle relayed that being a handicap tournament, the 2020 Stradbroke Handicap is a race this year that appears to be quite open.
Last Saturday, Waller affirmed that Subpoenaed was quite unfortunate after making it in the fourth place in Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse tilt. Nevertheless, he shared that his female charge is ready to race in the Group 3 event of the Fred Best Classic, which will happen at the Doomben Racecourse in Queensland’s capital on Saturday, May 30. If Subpoenaed becomes the winner of this 1,350-metre horse race, she will get guaranteed participation at the 2020 Stradbroke Handicap’s Group 1 contest, according to the report by Australian horse racing news and information website Racenet. On the same day as this competition, the 2020 J J Atkins is the other Group 1 horse race scheduled at the Eagle Farm Racecourse during new-look Queensland carnival.
TAREN POINT, New South Wales – Marc Van Gestel described how Racing New South Wales (NSW) and their counterparts in other Australian states had managed during the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic. Racing in Australia, by and large, has been able to carry on mainly without interruption during the international health crisis.
Throughout this time, Van Gestel and other racing officials in Australia have been in continuous contact with other racing jurisdictions around the world. Together they have been working hard while neighbouring countries, like New Zealand, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and several territories in Europe, did not have any choice but to halt racing for long periods due to the COVID-19 dilemma.
The chief steward of Racing NSW confirmed that his team and their equivalent in other states had enforced several stringent rules as the pandemic pummeled the world. In this manner, the rigid measures enabled racing to continue Australia-wide. The strict protocols include social distancing, racing without crowds, and minimising horse and jockey movement. The group of Van Gestel and their peers in other Australian states had required the cooperation of the whole racing sector to be successful, as per Australian horse racing information and news website Racenet.
Van Gestel pointed out that introducing strict rules could be worrisome. However, he said that nearly 100 per cent of their participants had obeyed the stewards’ directions. Although there had merely been one or two moments in which there had been a violation of the social distancing rules, the Racing NSW head steward relayed that everyone had been obedient. He mentioned these compliant people as the barrier attendants, jockeys, horse racing officials, racehorse trainers, stablehands, and clerks of the course.
Van Gestel expressed his feeling of satisfaction with the results of their enforcement of the rules safeguarding their people against the harmful impacts of COVID-19. Also, he remarked that his governing organisation would carry on by taking a cautious approach versus COVID-19 to make sure that racing does not stop in Australia.

O’Brien affirmed that Russian Camelot is still a young charge. At this point, he expressed that it is still unclear if he would follow the same path of joining the 3,200-metre November horse race, according to the news by Australian horse racing news and information portal Racenet.
The forthcoming 2020 Melbourne Cup is a horse race that will take place at the Flemington Racecourse and will award $8 million to the winning team. During the weekend’s South Australian Derby 2020, O’Brien watched Russian Camelot rake in his victory from Caulfield due to the coronavirus protocol on cross-border travel. The racehorse trainer affirmed that the brown and black-coloured son of Lady Babooshka and Camelot had been quite a thrilling sporting horse for them and the horse racing fans since he engaged in his first competition.

Moreover, Taylor confirmed that the Flemington star galloper that Freedman moulded is all set for the Goodwood Handicap in truly favourable order.

The suspension sentence of Nothdurft will commence on May 16. Then, it will end on August 16.

He added that Order Of Command had appeared to appreciate soft ground as well, based on the report by Australian horse racing news and information website, Racenet.

Nevertheless, in the last 100 metres, Order Of Command dug profoundly. He battled hard against the $10-favourite, scoring by a short neck. Furthermore, top-performing rider Damien Oliver provided the bay-coloured racehorse with the ideal trail behind the leaders to the home turn. Meanwhile, Inn Keeper placed third in the horse race held at the Warrnambool Racecourse. This $15-favourite during the May 6 competition is a local sporting horse which was one length away, landing on the third spot after Superhard.
