Hawk’s Saturday Selections – 2015 Derby Day

October 31, 2015

The biggest four days on the Australian racing calendar are here with the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington upon us.

Today is the day for the purists, Derby Day, with every race a black type affair and four Group One races on the card.

As always, this blog’s most popular post annually will be up later tonight – my 2015 Melbourne Cup preview. It is a tome that is already longer than War And Peace, and given I disagree quite a bit with the market this year it will make for interesting reading. Stay tuned!
