I'm writing this off-schedule blog to ask for your help to raise funds for brain cancer research. Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in children, and adults aged under 40 in Australia. Yet alarmingly very little is known about brain cancer, its caus...

Tributes have been pouring in from around the globe following the passing of America's First Lady of Racing, Helen "Penny" Chenery, on Saturday. She was 95 years old.

Shakespeare's Juliet may have asked 'What's in a name?' but right now I'm asking 'Who?'   As you look through the form guide, you'll see that some races are named after businesses who have paid for the right to promote their brand, whilst others may be named after peop...
