She’s Archie, who ran second to Makybe Diva, beaten a half length in the 2003 Melbourne Cup, now 18 years of age, is returning to the breeding barn this season to be covered by the Melbourne Cup winner of three years ago, Fiorente.

That was the first time that Darren Weir had saddled up a runner in the Melbourne Cup, the second time was last year when he won the Cup with Prince Of Penzance.

She Archie’s had Group 1 success when she won the South Australian Oaks, her daughter, May’s Dream, also won the Oaks; she was sold at Magic Millions two months ago for $720,000, as a breeding proposition only.

Those that supported Sebrikka in the opening race at Caulfield had some anxious moments when the filly flatly refused to leave the mounting yard.

After much pushing and shoving, waving hands, plus all forms of antics, she finally gave in, to the relief of her rider, Regan Bayliss and David Hayes.

Sebrikka is a smart filly, her manners are a little off edge at present, they obviously can be corrected, on the whole she is a pretty handy filly and we have not seen the best of her yet. David Hayes and Tom Dabernig completed a double in the following race, winning with another handy filly in Majestic Lass.

O’lonhro was among the winning sires at Caulfield on Saturday when O’lonera won pretty impressively over 2000 metres.

He is a lightly raced gelding, having won twice from nine starts, he gives the impression he will get further as he was drawing away from his opposition, he was bred by Ms Lyn Alderson from her mare, Danera by Danehill,

O’lonhro, as the name suggests, is by Lonhro, he is a likeable horse resembling his sire, he has quite a impressive pedigree, his dam, Mamzelle Pedrille, is well related as this is the family of Flight, Sky Line and Sky High, the full brothers that each won a Golden Slipper and a Derby, while current prominent sire, I Am Invincible, is a generation back in the pedigree.

Fresh from a brief vacation, Damian Oliver was back to his best in winning the Group 3 Sir John Monash aboard Wild Rain

The race was a great result for Mark Kavanagh, who has been to hell and back, associated with the prolonged cobalt inquiry.

Wild Rain would most likely appear next in the Bletchingly Stakes at weight for age at over 1200 metres, at Caulfield, the last race meeting of the metropolitan season.

Lord Of The Sky Looked a picture in the post parade, with a handler each side of him and neck arched, he looked the cream of the crop, he ran up to his best, but his best looks to be behind, it seems he is a light of other days.
