Chips In! Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes @TheHeath 24/02/18

Welcome to the people's Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes. One of the best 2 year old events on the racing calendar. With $1.5 million up for grabs its never a dull or boring race. All trainers, owners, and jockeys want to win this event, while its not a Grand Slam (Golden Slipper, Cox Plate, Caulfield Cup, Melbourne Cup), its up there as one of most important races on the calendar to target and win! Besides the prize money and prestige up for grabs, millions can also be made in the breeding barn for a Blue Diamond Champion #chipsin #chasethesun Read more [...]

Chips In! Black Caviar Lightning @Flemington #17/02/18

Group 1 racing returns to headquarters with the running of the Black Caviar Lightning. Named after the horse of our life time she was a beauty who will always remain UNDEFEATED. People are already making comparisons with Winx but as the old saying goes 'never compare apples to oranges'. One was a sprinter and one is a middle distance/stayer. Just sit back and appreciate Black Caviar and enjoy Winx while she is still racing. Time stops for no one, not even champions. I am forever grateful for the week I spent at Royal Ascot where I saw three of the best all shine on the big stage, Frankel, So You Think, and of course Black Caviar. If you live and breath racing like I do you enjoy watching good and great horses running well consistently. The three I mentioned above probably did that better than any other three that I have seen. Get trackside if you can as autumn racing is heating up, its a cracking program with plenty of value on offer. Chase The Sun. Read more [...]

Chips In! Ladbrokes C.F. Orr Stakes 10/2/18

How good are the fields for Saturday???!!!! We see the first Group 1 for 2018 and it is an absolute ripper! Its almost like a mini Derby Day with wall to wall Listed and Group racing at the heath. The A grader's are back and Saturday will provide us with a good form guide for the next 6 weeks during Melbourne's Festival of Racing and beyond. Not long until the focus will switch to Sydney's autumn carnivals #slipper #championships. The year is flying already! By the way, how good was Kaching Wednesday Night???!!! The son of So You Think is back bigger and better than ever and we are autumn dreaming. Its time to open the shoulders, forget the AFLW and International T20 series and concentrate on the greatest sport in the world....the sport of kings #chasethesun #autumndreaming #stayawayfrombunnings Read more [...]

Chips In! Sydney Markets Expressway Stakes @Rosehill 3/3/18

Another cracking summer weekend ahead and it all starts Friday night with racing from Moonee Valley and Canterbury, Carlton vs Collingwood in the WAFL, and we have the Renegades and the Strikers looking to book a berth in the Big Bash Grand Final. Spend your chips wisely Friday as we have Group 2 racing from Rosehill and Group 3 racing from Caulfield Saturday. Rosehill's feature is The Group 2 Sydney Markets Expressway Stakes while The Group 3 Ladbrokes Manfred Stakes will turn heads at the heath. We backed more placings then a game of baseball over the Australia Day long weekend and we hope to bounce back straight away. Heat up the $3 Aldi pizza, get your 4 TV's ready, and enjoy a mouth-watering weekend of sport. Don't forget the Super Bowl Monday! Chase The Sun Read more [...]

Chips In! Carlton Draught Aust. Stakes @Thevalley #Aussieday

First and foremost HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY! We live in the best country in the world, we drink the best beer, and we are privileged with great race tracks and quality racing. There is some value tonight at The Valley and it looks like a ripper day tomorrow at Caulfield with the running of the Blue Diamond Previews. Good start to 2018 for Chips In Racing with our best bet, best place bet both saluting last week and we even jagged the exacta in the feature race. Hopefully we can take this winning momentum into a monster weekend of punting, sport, and all good things that are Australian. There is no better time to Chase The Sun, so open up the shoulders, have a sickie Monday, and crack a tinnie with a great mate. #chipsin #chasethesun Read more [...]

Chips In! Inglis Dash @Flemington #20/01/2018

Well its not as good as a $2 million dollar race on the Gold Coast but the $250,000 Inglis Dash at Flemington still offers plenty of value for owners, jockeys, and trainers. The meeting at Flemington is a typical tricky summer affair but I reckon we will see a star announce themselves tomorrow at headquarters. There is plenty of value on the card, and over the next 2-3 weeks we will see the Group 1 stars make their returns in search of the autumn and winter riches. The Blue Diamond is just around the corner for the 2 year olds, while Melbourne's Festival of Racing which culminates with The Australian Cup on 'Super Saturday' will be here before we know it. Our best bet last week Viddora got Chips In Racing off to a flyer for 2018 and we are hoping we can take the momentum into this week. God bless Sharing #chipsin #chasethesun Read more [...]

Chips In! The Magic Millions 2yo Classic @Thegoldcoast #13/01/2018

Welcome to 2018! Hopefully you had a fantastic festive period with your family and you survived the punting "off season". Chips In started 2018 with a bang owning two winners on New Years Day, Hank Scorpio at Port Macquarie, and Conilad in Singapore. I've purchased a So You Think colt with First Light Racing at the recent New Zealand ready to run sales so hopefully this will give us something to follow and cheer hope in 2018. Kaching is not far off a return so hopefully there will be a few wins install for Chips In this year. A Flemington winner or a Group 1 winner isn't to much to ask for?! Read more [...]

Chips In! The Emirates Stakes @Flemington #11/11/17

Welcome to the last day of the carnival. If you had a winning day on Oaks I will get you to pick my Powerball numbers for me. Emirates Stakes day is the second best day on the racing calendar with the running of three cracking races The Emirates Stakes, The Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Darley Classic. It is a day for the future punters, owners, trainers and jockeys to come to the races with their mum and dads and enjoy every thing racing has to offer and there is no place better than Flemington to have your first outing at a racetrack. Flemington is the home of horse racing and it should be a cracking attendance on Saturday with hot and sunny weather forecasted. It's been a winning week for Chips In Racing so lets go out swinging on the final day and make this a carnival to remember! #chasethesun #nothingbeatsspring Read more [...]

Chips In! Kennedy Oaks Day @Flemington #9/11/2017

The running of the million dollar Kennedy Oaks is the time honoured feature event on a day that is supported with a typically strong and competitive Melbourne Cup Carnival program. Most punters would be hurting today after the usual rough results that is associated with a Melbourne Cup program but Chips In is on his toes and up and about. Yesterday we witnessed triumph for Lloyd Williams at Flemington who won the race for an amazing 6th time as an owner and he also jagged the runner up for good value. Love him or hate him you cant question his desire or passion to Chase The Sun and win this great race time and again. He spends 365 days a year buying, selling and researching to find his next Melbourne Cup Champion. Hats off to him! Read more [...]

Chips In! Emirates Melbourne Cup #Chasethesun @Flemington

The 6.2 million dollar race that stops the nation is here. This is every owners, punters, jockeys and trainers dream to win the famous race on the first Tuesday in November. The lonely track work that starts at 3am every day all leads to this week and for the lucky ones a runner in the feature race. This race is an obsession for me personally and as I watch my 14th consecutive cup live from Flemington I will shed a tear thinking about the champions that made a nation roar and imagine what it would have been like to have seen Peter Pan, Phar Lap, Think Big and Carbine race to cup glory. As another chapter is written in front of me I will think about my boys Desmond and Chase, my brother Michael, my father Desmond and my friends and realise that thanks to racing we will always share a special bond and I will always have a sun to chase. As a whole country freezes to watch the next horse race into equine immortality I will reflect on this great race and know that the friendships I have made through racing and the Melbourne Cup can never be matched through money or longshot winners. Nothing beats spring….This is the Melbourne Cup…..Chase The Sun. Read more [...]
