Winter whopper
By Winning Post, June 9, 2024 - 6:58 AM

This week's Winning Post will be available online from 3pm Thursday AEST here.

The Queensland carnival reaches its crescendo this Saturday with a dual Group 1 day at Eagle Farm.

The top sprinters in training clash again led by last week's winner Vilana in the $3 million Stradbroke Handicap while the two-year-olds stretch out to 1600 metres in the $1 million J.J. Atkins.

The weight-for-agers clash in the Group 2 $1.2 million Q22, the race that last year produced cups double hero Without A Fight.

Support races on an all-black-type card at the Farm are the Brisbane Cup, Dane Ripper Stakes, Gunsynd Classic, The Wayne Wilson, Hinkler Handicap and Oxlade Stakes.

Saturday is Winter Cup day at Rosehill while the winter heats continue at Flemington.

The highlight at Belmont is the Group 3 Strickland Stakes.

Our form coverage kicks off on Friday with a full form guide for the Ballarat synthetic, plus fields, colours, previews and tips for a stack more Friday meetings.

The metro racing this Saturday is at Sandown in Melbourne, Rosehill in Sydney, Murray Bridge in SA, Eagle Farm in Brisbane and Belmont in Perth.

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

On Sunday we've got liftout formguides for three more TAB meetings, as well as fields, ratings, tips and colours for a stack more Sunday and Monday programs.

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

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

Our readers have their say on page 4, while further back in the book Shane Templeton reminisces, Paul Richards presents his unique take on the sport, Tony Kneebone brings you his Snippets column and Number Cruncher delivers the stats that matter.

Winning Post costs $6.00 and is available Thursday afternoon online ($5), the crack of dawn Friday in shops.
