Looks like a superb days racing at Rosehill may go ahead, but that could be it, I doubt they can squeeze in the 2 days of The Championships.

Will put together quite a few trivia racing questions related to Aus/NZ racing, in between doing all the jobs at home I have had on my list for the last 2 years.

There will be a few cryptic ones, such as below

1.  Sacred but fishy riding champions.  

The answer is just one word

Ok, here's a series of questions about 2 milers. All relating to horses in the last 20 years.

We all know Who Shot Thebarman ran in (and won) multiple 3200m races.

Name the horse with the most runs on the flat over 3200m  (Oz/NZ) - but has never won but has placed at group level at that distance (has won over hurdles at 3200m)

Name the horse that has raced at least as often as Who Shot Thebarman over 3200m on the flat but has won more times over that distance on the flat.

Name the horse that has raced as often as Who Shot Thebarman over 3200 on the flat - but won less times over 3200 but won a G1 and had 3 G1 seconds over 3200m.

Too help out, two of the above answers raced each other a number of times.

(1) Crafty Cruiser

(2) Charles Road     Hartnell 

 

(1) may have been the answer for 3000m+ - as has raced in 3000m races a lot. As well as a number of 3200m. But not enough of those at 3200m (He's a real tryer - 158 starts so far at last count)

(2) Charles Road - not quite Midnight Caller - has only has about 5 or 6 runs at 3200 (WST has had 10 3200m starts). Hartnell, also only around 4/5 starts at 3200m

3.  Red Cadeaux.  Three times runner-up in the Cup and won the Group 1 HK Vase.

Good answer - but I only have him racing 9 times over 3200m. But the Vase was 2400m and I don't think he has a G1 3200m. Unless I've missed some.

All the answers have raced 10+ times over 3200m (specifically that distance).
