2018 Sandown Cup

2018 Sandown Cup


What a Sandown Cup that was! Congratulations to team Britton, producing the Trifecta in the 2018 Group One RSN Sandown Cup and we are sure everyone is still a #FanOfSam.

It may have been Sandown Cup night but the group racing action didn’t stop there. We saw Elevated prove her class in the #SapphireCrown and My Redeemer win the Harrison-Dawson.

James Van de Maat and Elly Wicks take a deep dive into the 2018 RSN Group One Sandown Cup.

James Van de Maat gives his selections in the 2018 RSN Sandown Cup, who do you think will end up the top dog?

It's Sandown Cup time, which means another Phantom Call by James Van de Maat. Watch to see how James thinks the 2018 RSN Sandown Cup will be run and won.

My Redeemer climbs Group 1 ‘Hill’

Exciting young sprinter My Redeemer followed in the Group 1-winning footsteps of his superstar half-sister Up Hill Jill when storming to victory in the $100,000 to-the-winner Harrison-Dawson (515m) at Sandown Park on Thursday night.

Elevated wins the Sapphire Crown

Elevated rises to Sapphire Crown glory

Harry Manolitsis was no stranger to Group 1 glory heading into Thursday night’s Sapphire Crown (515m) at Sandown Park, having bred and raced 2016 Golden Easter Egg hero Moreira.

From the grassroots of coursing to the world’s richest staying race

To say Ian Garland has taken a fresh approach to his preparation for the 2018 Sandown Cup series with his young stayer Zipping Nitro would be a lie; rather, he went back to basics by Coursing.

James Van de Maat’s Group One Selections

James Van de Maat has shared his selections for tonight’s three Group One races with the TAB and punters alike.

Brothers to clash

Litter brothers Tornado Tears and Rippin’ Sam, the favourites to win next week’s RSN Sandown Cup (715m), are drawn in the same heat on Thursday night at 8.52pm.

Hopes of enchanted Sapphire

Enchanted by name and enchanted by nature; NSW young star Ella Enchanted is taking on Victoria’s big guns at Sandown Park in a heat of the Group One Sapphire Crown tonight.

Dee Bee is back

Melbourne Cup, Ballarat Cup and Warragul Cup winner Aston Dee Bee is making his return to racing tonight following more than a month on the sidelines due to a calf injury.
