The time honoured Great race is on this week , and the Race Place has ALL the winners lined up for another crack at it.

A Great list of winners since 1967 has some amazing New Zealand horse-power taking the honours .

Amazingly 4 of the All time Interdominion Greats have FAILED To Qualify. and didn't win the Miracle Mile .(Lazarus, Blacks A Fake ,I'm Themightyquinn, Gammalite and Lightning Blue)

THAT's How hard it is to win a Miracle Mile then ?  not for the feint-hearted.

To qualify for the GRAND FINAL , the 8 Winners of these 8 races will need to be selected by the Race Place Harness racing supporters. 

Fields of ALL the winners and Random barrier draw to HONOUR this Amazing Line-up of Champions will be here shortly.

Name a course LB.   Menangle ,the old Harold Park, Gloucester Park, Melbourne Showgrounds, Melton, Wayville lol, ???????

ok ...........Better make it Harold Park then ....  been closed since 2010 but that's where most won at. 

The last 10 were winners at Menangle BUT they can try their luck at Harold Park too !!!!  That'll slow those Bad-boys up a bit.........

Cheers.  Now is that their barrier draw .Eg Race 1 Robin Dundee draws no1  and Bay Foyle Draws barrier 6.  Harold Park was a course I spent a long time going to every Frid night, barrier draws are important. Just so we have a fighting chance .

Don’t waste your time G19, I’ve got this.😇

G19 is cleaning up at the gallops , might be a similar story here ? What a great line up of horses.

Hard to believe Blackie (Blacks A Fake) and Lightning Blue and Lazarus were only placed in the Miracle Mile and not in the Hunt ...

Can't hint how well Craig did yet.

Will give my result on Friday I think after a few entries . Pete has taken my Winning 8 on a message as referee (so I don't change my mind on selections)

1 My Field Marshall

2 Owned in Mosgiel! , no idea actually!!

1 is correct with the great NZ driver Ant's Butt steering NZ bred 'My Field Marshall.'

2 is that race is the Fastest ever run in the Southern Hemisphere. A scintillating 1.46.9 Mile. RACE RECORD holder. (an Australasian Record to boot)

With the KING of SWING drawn the poll , and in near career best form . (the parked out effort last week in a fast 1.47.9 was quite brilliant) it looks all over rover.

Looks set to create his own bit of history as the Only TRIPLE Miracle Mile Winner to date. Long live the King.

Lightning Blue left the WA Champ 'Parked Out ' in this Miracle Mile Globe. Village Kid only a battling third after that.

Unfortunately for Blue -boy , one sneaky bugger poked through the centre and pipped him at the post......  drats.....

Todays Miracle Mile Quiz ..

Q1 ? Who is this Party Pooper poking through the centre to Pip Lightning Blue and Village Kid in the Miracle Mile?.

Crowds were Awesome at Harold Park. Check out those fans just about falling out of the stand onto the track !!!!!   gee they were close to the horses there.

very surprised the great NZ mare STYLISH MEMPHIS is not having a crack at the $1,000,000 Miracle Mile ??  She's in 100k support race instead. 

My guess is maybe she is like ex-pat kiwi track specialist at Menangle 'Cash and Flow' that a time of 1.50 is her best mile. Whereas the 'King' and others are likely to be at 1.48 mile rate in the Miracle Mile ?

 

Hopefully the Bad Weather hitting there (Menangle) today/tomorrow left from the massive flooding QLD and northern NSW will clear by the weekend.

Here's Albion Park Brisbane last Sunday. !!! Geez she was wet, a run and a swim at the same time. triathlete horses in Qld now lol....
