Chips In! All Aged Stakes @Randwick #21/04/18

As The Championships and the Sydney autumn carnival comes to a close we still have a couple of Group 1 events this Saturday to get the heart pumping. There should be plenty of ‘’Chips’’ left over for a play this weekend after our best each way Who ShotThebarman saluted in the Sydney cup at a tasty price (suggested 7by3 @$14). Our Oaks selection Unforgiven also got the casssssssh (suggested 5by5 @$4) while our Winx trifecta narrowly missed. It’s been a good preparation for Chips In and in essence a very successful autumn which is traditionally a tricky time of year. No heavy tracks helped!!!! Read more [...]

Chips In! Queen Elizabeth Stakes @Randwick #14/04/2018

Welcome to the second day of the championships, The Grand Finals of Australian Racing. We nearly had a day out in the sun last week with Oohood, Redzel, and Ace High all beaten in the #shadows, while our Doncaster selection Happy Clapper got the chocolates. The $72 Exacta was nice but we were left lamenting the allups that went astray. Gee whiz. On an action packed day of racing Winx takes centre stage in the $4 million dollar feature The Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes. There are whispers around that this could be the final act, and she won’t have it all her own way as she looks to sit aside The Greatest of all time Black Caviar with 25 consecutive wins. Personally I hope she wins with authority, hopefully they retire her and let her be a mum, and hopefully people won’t compare her with a sprinter or pot her for not going overseas. Sit back and enjoy what is currently the greatest Horse Racing spectacle on the planet #chipsin #chasethesun #chipslife #thechips Read more [...]

The Star Doncaster Mile @Randwick #07/04/18

Welcome to day 1 of The Championships, The Grand Finals of Horse Racing. We have plenty of value on offer this week at Randwick with wall to wall Group racing with The Star Doncaster Mile the $3 Million Dollar feature event. We are hoping to continue where we left off last week tipping 3 winners from 5 including our best bet Almandin ($4), best place Levendi ($5), and next best Osbourne Bulls ($4). It will be a cracking day tomorrow for the opening day of The Championships and for once these Group 1 events will be ran on a dry track! It is usually Death, Taxes, and a wet Randwick for The Doncaster, not this year. Get trackside if you can, if not open the shoulders, have a crack, and make a name for yourself #chasethesun Read more [...]

Chips In! Kia Tancred Stakes @Rosehill #31/03/2018

Guess who's back, back again, guess who's back, tell your dog! Chips In is first up from a spell after a successful trip to the punting heart land, that's right #vegas. Despite missing Hellbent winning the William Reid at $11 financially Chips In had a good time in Paradise. Watching The Golden Slipper from a far was interesting as was trying to get a bet on! The old wifi and mobile data didn't know what country I was in more than myself. Winx looked good against some of our quality opposition, she is now a world record holder, but she won't travel to take on the rest of the world, while the Australian Cricket Team turned the clock back to 1981. I usually stick to horse racing but I will have a crack at the sandpaper saga in this edition. Read more [...]

Chips In! Super Saturday @Flemington #10/03/18

The Australian Cup is the feature of 'Super Saturday' which is a nice way to finish Melbourne's Autumn carnival before the focus heads north to Sydney for The Golden Slipper and The Championships. Its been a stellar Melbourne Autumn and last week was sensational. We had an old fashion fill up here last week at Chips In Racing with a collect from each of our selections including our best bet Hear The Chant who won easier than a 10 year old against a bunch of toddlers in a game of back yard cricket. This is the last edition for Chips In Racing until Good Friday (30/3) as little Chips In is San Diego and Las Vegas bound for the annual IRSHA convention in The United States of America. If you would like to stay up to date with my tips or pointers, check Chips In Racing facebook page out for the weekly tips (minus the preview).

Chips In! Australian Guineas @Flemington #03/03/2018

Good week on the punt for old chips in with our best bet winning, our best roughie running third, and our best each way also sneaking into a place. Nice to get a win as an owner last night with the #sonofagun Kaching getting back into the winners circle at Pakenham. The Chips were pushed in and he didn't let us down. We have been patient as owners and nights like last night are a nice reward for effort. Kaching is Flemington bound to chase the sun #thedreamliveson. The time honoured Australian Guineas is always a hotly contest event and this year's edition is no different. Always interesting to see the 3 year olds progression from Spring to Autumn, and I reckon there are some absolute stars in this field. Hopefully the winners keep coming this weekend #chasethesun #thechips Read more [...]

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 [...]
