Atomic Eclipse Edges Penal Hockey Party to Capture BC Mile

With so many good options to choose from in the BC Mile, not many people got behind Atomic Eclipse. The six year old gelding would go off as the second longest shot on the board at 34/1 and was hardly picked in the Pick ‘em. He came into the race off a couple of runner ups in Grade 2’s, which are results to be proud of, but others in the field just seemed to have raced in tougher spots and also had success in them.

Lady Sammyantha Prevails in BC Fillies & Mares Sprint

The top female sprinters made their way to SA to crown a BC champion amongst them in the running of the BC Fillies & Mares Sprint. There may be races that get a little more fanfare, but that doesn’t mean that we should not give these fine runners their just due. Amongst them was Lady Sammyantha, a five year old Ginger Haggis mare who was making her second appearance in the race.
