About the one constant in these troubled times in racing is Darren Beadman. He is the premier jockey in the country. The devout Christian is singing from a different hymn sheet. Maybe competition in the family is giving him an edge. Beadman has ridden alongside son Mitchell in a couple of track gallops at Warwick Farm in recent weeks.
Mitch is in the early stages of an apprenticeship with four-state trainer John Hawkes. Maybe Beadman snr is concerned about being dethroned. Closing in on 40, he has lifted his game at an age when many jockeys find desire waning and skills declining. Not for this guy. His work ethic is to be admired.
Beadman is working harder than ever and the results are there for all to see. He rides consistently at the provincial meetings, knowing connections reward those putting in the hard yards. It is all about not giving on-track rivals any type of edge. By continually elevating the bar, he is able to remain hungry. Many believed Beadman wouldn't handle the pressure associated with riding for Sydney's two dominant stables. The jockey answered the call from Gai Waterhouse and set about riding for her while keeping up commitments with Hawkes.
Beadman saw it as a challenge and there is little doubt he thrives on doing what many consider unrealistic.
Just have a look at the stats compiled this season alone. At the start of the season his goal was to break the riding record of winners in town which Beadman set in season This season ends on July 31 and injury or suspension are about the only things that can stop him.
Sure, Beadman will be riding at the Brisbane winter carnival in coming weeks, but the man is on song. Brilliant is about right. Sir Dex, suspect at the journey, was parked on the rails with Beadman not bothering to go around runners, preferring to wait for the opening to come. When it did he pounced. Sir Dex is now fully qualified for the Caulfield and Melbourne cups.
The horse's victory was the culmination of a six-month plan carried out to perfection by Warwick Farm trainer Greg "Cowboy" Hickman, who nursed Sir Dex back from tendon problems. Another trainer to be applauded is Allan Denham. Last Friday night his father, the taciturn Jack, was inducted into racing's Hall of Fame. Eremein hadn't started since tasting defeat a week after the derby in the Frank Packer Plate, m. Back to the m on Saturday and Eremein was backed like they used to be when Denham snr declared one a certainty.
The decision to send Eremein north surprised many. It was thought he, like most AJC Derby winners, would be aimed at the cups in the spring down south and a spell would do the gelding good.
But Allan Denham is a horseman who has been taught well. Strike while that horse is hot. Any other three-year-olds heading to the Queensland Derby are in a heap of trouble, for Eremein may well be one right out of the box.
Bagman fielding at Randwick on Wednesday and Saturday reported turnover was a sniff of weeks past. There was a 25 per cent downturn on the Wednesday and it wasn't much better on the feature day of the week. Word out of the Gold Coast on Saturday at the Prime Minister's Cup meeting was the same, with bookmaker Lloyd Merlehan declaring punters won't bet on what they can't see. It was a direct shot at the stoush between ThoroughVisioN and Sky Channel which has fractured racing's television signal, although one wise guy at Randwick at the weekend gave an alternative reason for the betting downturn: "There were a couple of headline-grabbing drug busts last week …".
Terry Gibson, the trainer of Nothin' On, reckoned the blonde demon disobeyed riding instructions in the Turf Handicap and gave the mare no chance. A composed O'Hara, who had already ridden a landmark double at Randwick, listened to the trainer and then stated her case without missing a beat. Shane Dye would have been proud. O'Hara explained with precision why she ended up on the rails and didn't hook out wide as Gibson had instructed.
Her evidence was clearly supported by video. Why not? Throw in an attractive travel allowance, which covers meals and overnight accommodation, and the demanding and thankless job, whatever the code, is appealing. Especially when you consider Racing NSW stewards slept three to a room at a Newcastle feature race meeting last year.
Racing NSW had better wake up. Chief steward Ray Murrihy must forget about toeing the party line. It is time to demand action. Country-based steward Michael Zarb is the latest to leave, heading off to Singapore. The betting exchange reckons it is all about launching a new product. Could it have anything to do with the British Government looking to change the tax structure imposed on betting exchanges?
Racing authorities and bookmakers in the Old Dart believe exchanges aren't paying their fair share to its racing industry. Racing authorities here are vehemently opposed to the licen- sing of exchanges Down Under. Betfair remains confident of gaining a licence here, at which point Kerry Packer will join its team. The Allan Denham-trained three-year-old returned from a freshen-up to blitz rivals in the Gold Coast Guineas. Beadman first and daylight is second.

Beadman, King pay tribute to Bart Cummings
With the Scone carnival in full swing it's appropriate that Betty Shepherd gets a run here alongside the whip controversy and the changing of the guard at Godolphin. From the punter's viewpoint, stewards' savage breaches — particularly in Queensland recently — have prompted suggestions of an unfair advantage to results that are not being penalised at a time when whip free racing is being advocated. Credit: Fairfax Media. The RSPCA has sent a letter to the NSW boss, Peter V'Landys, seeking a trial period following an independent survey of , which indicated "around nine out of 10 people who bet on racing will continue to do so if whipping is stopped".
