DAY TWO of Sydney, Australia's THE CHAMPIONSHIPS on SATURDAY will feature the G1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes, the richest of the new series with a $4 Million (Aus) purse, with stars IT'S A DUNDEEL, GREEN MOON, SILENT ACHIEVER (one of three fillies/mares), and CARLTON HOUSE (Street Cry) (HRH Queen Elizabeth's horse, a gift of Sheikh Mohammed as a yearling). Also BOBAN (Bernardini), ROYAL DESCENT (filly, winner of Australian Oaks 2013), and HAWKSPUR. Most are Group 1 winners, with t...he exception of the hapless Carlton House who barely missed in the G1 Ranvet on Mar. 22 when he was nipped at the wire by Silent Achiever. Carlton House will be ridden by 23 year old Tommy Berry, twin brother to Nathan Berry who tragically died Apr. 3. Read more about The Championships at
