The Race Review section contains extensive coverage of all black type races (Group 1, Group 2, Group 3 and Listed Races) across Australia and internationally.
We ensure each weekend of racing and its biggest races across the world receive coverage in the Race Review section with detailed commentary on key runners and what lies in store for them in the future.
Regardless of what state or territory the race is conducted in, Racing And Sports will have a full race review in this section within 24 hours of its running. The coverage extends to Singapore with our weekly recaps along with track work reports for Melbourne for gallops conducted at Flemington and Caulfield.
An exciting feature of the area is the horse racing replays we provide users for free. Replays for Australia’s key meetings each week are made available soon after the events have been conducted.
Whether you wish to watch the race replays of the final 400m of each race during a meeting bundled together or a feature race replays in their entirely, the Race Review section provides them.

This resource combined with our free form, news and results sections make Racing and Sports a one stop shop for all of your horse racing needs both for Australian and international racing.
Kobayashi wins 2017 Thoroughbred Club Cup Listed $120,000 at Caulfield (VIC), 1200m.
The Leon and Troy Corstens-trained colt Kobayashi was quite impressive in winning this Listed race, his second win in four starts to date. He was quickly away from barrier seven and went straight to the front. He then steadied the tempo (first 600m 37.42) before lifting the pace at the 600m. He got a break on straightening and was not threatened from that point to score a very smart win, sprinting a quick last 600m (33.85).
Star Exhibit wins 2017 Thoroughbred Club 50th Stakes Listed $120,000 at Caulfield (VIC), 1440m.
The Perth Cup (Gr 2, 2400m) winner Star Exhibit created quite an impression with his first up win in his eastern states debut for new trainer Darren Weir. Having his first start since winning that race at Ascot on New Year’s Eve, he settled in sixth place, one off the rails, tracked up well nearing the home turn, challenged at the 200m and proved too strong in the closing stages to win impressively.
Boom three-year-old Tannhauser was clearly the stand-out performance of the weekend, as he again gave his rivals a galloping lesson.
Having turned plenty of heads when breaking his maiden status two back, Tannhauser was sent out the very short priced favourite ($1.20) and duly saluted.
Polarisation wins 2017 Schweppes Sydney Cup Group 1 $200,0000 at Randwick (NSW), 3200m.
The Charlie Appleby-trained, Godolphin-raced stayer Polarisation put up a solid staying performance in taking out this Group One race at his first Australian start, albeit after crossing the line in front in the subsequently declared ‘no race’ of this event a fortnight ago. Corey Brown settled him, well back in fifth place, before improving nicely from the 700m. He got to the front on turning for home and then dug deep when challenged for a good win.
