It is the second spring carnival in a row Oliver has been hit with an improper riding ban after spending a month on the sidelines for his ride on Flyng Artie in a lead-up to his win in the Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes.

"It looks like it might have gone on longer than it has, because it turned out he wasn't going to do that, but he then forced me back out".

It was her 22nd straight victory, and the prize money moved her total earnings past the record of Makybe Diva to become Australia's richest racehorse.

Off at 1-9 in the United States wagering pool, Winx became the all-time Australian leader in Group 1 wins and money earned while joining Kingston Town as the Group 1 Cox plate's only three-time victor. It has been such a build up and they said when we won last year nothing can prepare you for what you are in for next year. "But Winx is a champion and they keep finding don't they".

Oliver missed the ride on Almandin in last year's Cup because the Lloyd Williams-owned gelding carried 52kg, under his weight range.

Body of missing teacher found
Lockhart was a part of the Schoolcraft Schools Family from 2015 to 2017, serving primarily as our Spanish teacher. The school district said grief counselors will be available to help students and staff cope with her death.

A cracking pace up front from Hugh Bowman on Religify and Mark Zahra on Burning Front set the race up nicely Lucky Hussler who was able to run over the two pacemakers. So along that sequence I have never gone into a race saying we will win today, because you always have to respect what happens on a racetrack.

"The plan today was to be strong to the line and go to the Melbourne Cup", Weir said. "As a racing lover, as an animal lover, I get great satisfaction watching any good horse, or exceptional horse and this Thoroughbred has brought so much joy to my life, my family's life, and I know everybody is very proud of what we've achieved together".

"It's incredible what happens when they're ridden properly", Weir said.

Meanwhile, Aloisia's dominant victory in the Drummond Golf Vase saw her firm into the $1.80 favourite to win the Oaks, while Cliffs Edge joined Royal Symphony as the $5 favourite to win next Saturday's Derby.
