This week in Winning Post

It's one of the biggest weekends on the Australian racing calendar and Winning Post will be out a day early to give you plenty of time to study up.

The Championships begin at Royal Randwick with the $3 million Doncaster Mile, the $2.5 million T.J. Smith Stakes featuring Terravista and co, the $2 million ATC Australian Derby and the $1 million Inglis Sires' Produce.

Elsewhere, Oakbank's carnival kicks off with Von Doussa Steeple day and there are cracking cards at Caulfield and Doomben.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Caulfield in Victoria, Randwick in Sydney, Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills, Doomben in Brisbane and Ascot in Perth.

Winning Post carries full-colour liftout guides for all those meetings plus Tatura (Vic/SA/Tas edition), Kembla Grange NSW edition) and Gold Coast (Queensland edition), as well as fields, tips, ratings and/or colours for other TAB Saturday cards.

On Sunday we've got liftout formguides for two more TAB meetings including Stawell Cup day plus fields, ratings, tips and colours for a stack more Sunday programs.

On Easter Monday we've got liftout form guides for William Hill Park in Melbourne, Great Eastern day at Oakbank and the Sydney metro card at Warwick Farm.

Don't forget Winning Post now carries trackwork reports for all four Melbourne training tracks, all three in Sydney, Morphettville in Adelaide and a general Brisbane report.

Away from the form, we've got news columns from Queensland, NSW, six Victorian districts, SA and Tasmania.

On page 6, our readers are fired up across all the big issues and on page 7 Richard Callander has the inside mail on NSW racing while Shane Templeton reminisces. Further back in the book Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport and Tony Kneebone presents his lively Snippets column.

Letter of the Week

Size isn't everything

While I generally agree that “a good big horse will always beat a good little horse,” I feel the word “always” should be amended to “most of the time”.
In the “big horse” category we have the mighty mare Black Caviar.
But among the little horses I wish to mention two outstanding champions of the past, both a bit smaller than average.
They are Tulloch, the 1957 Caulfield Cup winner, and Light Fingers, the 1965 Melbourne Cup winner who ran second the following year to the great Galilee.
