Hawk’s Saturday Selections: Hollindale Stakes Day

May 4, 2013

The Sydney Carnival may be over, save for Monday’s eagerly anticipated More Joyous inquiry, but the quality of racing across Australia is still of a high standard.

I’ve chosen to focus on today’s Gold Coast meeting, the unofficial start of the Brisbane winter carnival.

It’s a meeting I’ve had success with in the past, so I have provided my selections for all races at the Gold Coast today.

There is Group 1 racing from South Australia with the running of the South Australian Derby, while Hawkesbury’s successful “stand alone” meeting features three Listed races. I’ve provided selections for those races too.

And there is plenty of international interest as well, with the 2000 Guineas run tonight in England, the Kentucky Derby run tomorrow morning in the United States, and the Champions Mile run tomorrow afternoon in Hong Kong.

New Zealand is represented in the Champions Mile by last start George Ryder second King Mufhasa, so there will be ample attention on both sides of the Tasman.

The other two races are two of the world’s most famous contests. I have written a preview for both races for The Roar.

It promises to be a huge weekend of racing action. Salivating!

Here are my selections for today’s Gold Coast meeting, with select races from Morphettville and Hawkesbury:
