Everest and Caulfield Guineas

Saturday 13 October

Defending champion Redzel saddles up in the Everest - the “world’s richest race on turf” - alongside a crack field of 11 other runners vying for $13 million in prizemoney over 1200m at Randwick.

In the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, The Autumn Sun will jump a short-priced favourite after the colt drew perfectly in barrier 5 yesterday.

A strong field is also assembling for the 2000m Caulfield Stakes, including last year’s Cox Plate runner-up Humidor , and three internationals; Cliffs of Moher and Godolphin’s Benbatl and Blair House.

Hosted by Bruce McAvaney , Hamish McLachlan and Jason Richardson , with experts Peter Moody, Richard Freedman and Katelyn Mallyon , along with colour reporting from Abbey Gelmi, Emma Davenport and Jessica Ridley, and Chris Symons with all the horseback interviews.

Seven got it wrong again. As the race suggests, Caulfield Guineas is held at Melbourne’s Caulfield Racecourse, not Flemington.


#777

The Caulfield Guineas at 5:15pm is the highlight race at Caulfield, so why is Seven shifting the coverage in Sydney and Melbourne from 7 to 7TWO at 5:00pm. The Brisbane times appear to be wrong.


#778

For some stupid and illogical reason, they almost always prioritize airing the 5pm bulletin even though when they move the horse racing to 7Two - it only runs for an extra half hour


#779

According to today’s Herald Sun, Seven will again broadcast the Inter Dominion harness racing event, to be held this year at Tabcorp Park in Melton in Melbourne’s outer west, on Saturday December 15. Hamish McLachlan will host the telecast, alongside Tabcorp’s harness guru Adam Hamilton and Adelaide Crows AFL star Josh Jenkins.


#780

The eastern states will get at least 30 minute extra coverage on main channel tomorrow to cover for the Caulfield Guineas. The new broadcast times are:
Sydney 12.00pm LIVE on Channel 7 and 7plus, 5.30pm LIVE on 7TWO and 7plus
Melbourne 12.00pm LIVE on Channel 7 and 7plus, 5.30pm LIVE on 7TWO and 7plus
Brisbane 11.00am LIVE on Channel 7 and 7plus

Is Francesca Cumani not being part the Spring Racing Coverage this year? I have not seen her yet


#782

Francesca is still in Britain. She was at Ascot Racecourse two days ago according to her Instagram.


#783

Melbourne Cup Carnival is usually when she jumps on board.


#784

I wonder if Seven Melbourne will bring back (a 2010s version of) the Penthouse Club as part of it? :smiley:


#785

She joined the coverage on Cox Plate day last year so guessing the same thing will happen this year


#786

It’s going to be a wet day today in both Sydney and Melbourne for horse racing. The feature event Caulfield Cup isn’t run until 4.40pm AEDT. Six internationals are among the 18 horses vying for the $5 million price.

#787

Looks like the rain is easing up but this is the problem of running g the feature event so late on the programme to suit tv broadcasters. Would hate to see such a race abandoned or postponed.


#788

Love the fake gallop and crowd noise on 7…not


#789

What makes you think it’s fake? I’m not a fan of it especially when they lower the commentary for the low shot of the hooves on at around the 800m mark, but it does add to the atmosphere of being on course.


#790

They kept playing the same loop over and over and the gap between loops was quite noticeable at one stage


#791

Is there an audio comparison from Channel 7’s coverage and racing.com’s coverage?
