Until Valhalla Racing Tomorrow, Trials and Ciaron's FormCast!

The final day of the Spring Carnival has arrived with feature races across the country highlighted by two feature Group 1s at Caulfield as well as the $1M Hunter at Newcastle’s feature meeting for the year.

Following on from the biggest week in racing, the BTX team are only getting started. With as many as 6 stable stars running throughout November and December across 4 states. Make sure to stay tuned as the feature racing ends and a focus turns to the young and upcoming 2 and 3-year-olds that are going to be the forces to be reckoned with in the coming season.

Before any of that happens though. Get the CMR Formcast featuring Until Valhalla who could become the first Black Type runner for BTX as she prepares to tackle the Group 3 Spring Stakes at 4.05 pm on Saturday at Newcastle.

Until Valhalla The First Black Type Runner For BTX As Luluoru Filly Gets A Pedigree Upgrade

Good luck to all our Fillies Pack owners this weekend as our Snitzel filly Until Valhalla tackles the Group 3, $250,000 Spring Stakes over 1600m at Newcastle on Saturday. In a key move, the stable has secured the services of recent Coolmore Stud Stakes winning jockey Rachel King to ride in the 4.05 curtain raiser. Which preceeds the $1M Hunter in the stand-alone feature meeting for the Newcastle Racing Club.

The Spring Stakes is a 3YO set weights contest with runners funnelling in from a variety of formlines, so whilst it is hard to track who the key contenders are, the team are confident this is the right option for our filly.

Until Valhalla’s last start victory holds her strongly in the market with Sky Racing Form Expert Ron Dufficy selecting her as his on top selection in the contest. “She’s got a bit of quality about her. She’s well-bred, she’s had 4 winners come out of her maiden race and another winner out of her win at Kensington 3 weeks ago. I’m with Until Valhalla, I just think the stable gets it right”. A strong push from the well-known racing guru, who’s breeding as a half-sister to Oaks winner Sofia Rosa when she triumphed at Group 1 level over 2400m, which sees her perfectly placed at the 1600m, stepping up in trip. Her sire Snitzel has produced a variety of Group 1 stars over the Group 1 trip, ironically, the last being Yearning in the Thousand Guineas, run on Saturday in Melbourne. Yearning was out of 2400m specialist and Caulfield Cup runner-up Rising Romance.


Until Valhalla is not the only filly in the pack with exciting racing prospects building. Eagle-eyed owners picked up on our unnamed Yes Yes Yes x Luluoru filly having a half-sister place second on debut at Ballarat on Wednesday. Somebodytolove by More Than Ready was an eye-catching second behind the more experienced, Godolphin-trained Juggle in the Porter Plant 3YO Fillies Maiden Plate over 1200m. Trained by Grahame Begg who has race favourite Magic Time in the Sir Rupert Clark Stakes on Saturday, Somebodytolove’s fantastic final 400m, circling the field after settling last was eerily similar to the debut run of Until Valhalla. A great sign of the quality Luluoru can produce, which has been clear to see for all owners in the trainer updates provided by the CMR team.

Very exciting times ahead for multiple runners in the Fillies Pack.

Speed On Speed Developing Into Talent 3YO

Speed On Speed has developed brilliantly following his first jumpout on Wednesday. Speaking to co-trainer Matt Hoysted, the team could not be prouder of the horse who has an extreme amount of ability. A small glimpse of the ability he does have.

Speed On Speed was given a quiet educational jumpout last week, running an impressive second and will be asked for more effort next Tuesday when he heads to Doomben for an official trial. Which will be his last major piece of work before a racing debut at the end of the month.


A half-brother to $1.6M earner I’ll Have A Bit who defeated Champion Sprinter Nature Strip at Group 3 level before going on to run 3rd in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes over 1200m at Morphetville. Speed on Speed is bred to be fast.


His second in his recent trial was behind a 3 times city-winning sprinter, showcasing how he can mix it with the best. Shares are selling fast and are sure to sell faster when you see him on the track at the end of the month. A very exciting BTX sprinter.

Shares of Speed On Speed are available for $270 for 0.05%.

Chloe’s Missile Could Be The Star Of The Summer

Chloe’s Missile will be heading to the trials in Adelaide next week for one final hitout ensuring she is ready to peak first up when tackling the races in early December. Arguably the most exciting horse in the BTX stable due to her ideal placement in South Australia.

Chloe’s Missile is most definitely ready to make an impression in her maiden racing campaign. As a summer 3YO, she will be tackling high prizemoney maidens, before the team has the opportunity to progress her through the grades to prepare her for Adelaide’s winter carnival in April and May. The team at Clarken Racing have taken extra care and attention to the fillies training due to her ability, ensuring that when she does get to the racetrack she maximises her evident talent.


From only $75 she could be the star of the summer at BTX Racing.
