Racing: Max Whitby takes the head and shoulders of The Grandson's colours – The Canberra Times

Powerful owner Max Whitby loves his racing and loves seeing his colours go round, but as in business sometimes you have to compromise about little things.

The silks have become the way for Whitby to show his racing interests by taking over the head and shoulders, while still also giving his partners their brand.

“I want people to know what horses I’m racing. That?means racing in my colours. But they can’t all be in my colours, I have found out,” Whitby said. “I had to compromise with [Neil] Werrett in a couple of horses and it is where I got the idea.

“We used his colours but I got the shoulders and cap to do the thinking and carry him.

“I have the [red and white checked] epaulettes, which are the feature of my colours, and now when my mates see them they know I’m in the horse.

“It is something we started with Neil but there are a couple more sets of colours that we are getting made up for other horses.”

The latest to wear bastardised colours is The Grandson ? who Whitby?races with Proven Thoroughbreds ? who will take his place in Newcastle’s repositioned Spring Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.

It is a race Whitby has?previously won in his colours with Savvy Nature in 2013.?

The Grandson is a son of successful stallion Savabeel and when Proven’s Jamie Walter?asked if Whitby, who owns Savabeel, was interested in a share a deal was done.

“I told him I knew the horse and liked him and the mare [Millililli], so I told him I would go in for a majority interest of 50? per cent and that I wanted it to race in my colours,” Whitby said. “I have known Jamie for a long time so it was good to go into a horse with him.

“When it won at Kembla last preparation my racing manager pointed out it was in Proven’s colours, so I rang and said,?’what the hell is?going on?’

“That’s when I got these colours made up and the first time we used them he won at Goulburn.”

Like many Savabeels,?The Grandson is looking for more ground, even though his wins have come at 1400 metres and 1300 metres in a four-start career.

Jason Collett rode The Grandson to his first-up win at Goulburn and retains the ride on the $26 chance in the Spring Stakes.

“I really like him,” Collett said.?”I know it was only Goulburn but he was very strong to the line under a big weight. The 1600 metres and further is going to help him and he isn’t out of this race on Saturday.”

Injured apprentice rider Deanne Panya may face further time on the sidelines after it was revealed that, three weeks before her fall, she produced a urine sample that contained a banned substance.

Racing NSW stewards have scheduled an inquiry for Thursday at 2pm into the fall that saw Panya break a collarbone and receive a deep cut to her chin at Rosehill on January 28.

That inquiry into the reasons for her fall from Sebring Express at the 250-metre mark in the Widden Stakes will be followed at 2.30pm by the Racing NSW inquiry into the positive sample that has been confirmed by the Australian Racing Forensic Laboratory.

The sample was taken from the 24-year-old rider at the January 2 Randwick meeting.

Panya’s broken collarbone is expected to keep her on the sidelines for up to eight weeks.

John Campbell was one of the few guys who signed up to race with the Formula Offroad guys from Iceland. Johns rock bouncer weighs a lot more than the Formula Offroad cars and is way underpowered compared to them but that didn’t stop him from having a blast on the monster hill side. John was the only Rock Bouncer to climb the first hill and even had some great climbs on the 2nd and 3rd hill. Video does no justice to how steep and loose these hills really are.

Prince Of Penzance’s?defence of his Melbourne Cup victory last spring ended abruptly and in dramatic circumstances on Saturday when he was sent for surgery on a fractured leg.

Jockey?John Allen?was initially pleased?with the seven-year-old’s fourth placing in Saturday’s $400,000 Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) behind Assign?but a short time later vets reported that?Prince Of Penzance appeared to be lame in the off-fore.

Further examinations revealed that?Darren Weir’s seven-year-old son of Pentire?has a fractured off-fore and will need surgery followed by a long recuperation.

Prince Of Penzance settled last and produced an encouraging effort as topweight with 60kg in the Herbert Power, running his final 1000m in 58.23 seconds, which was the second-quickest of the race behind third-placed Pemberley.

Allen described his performance as ‘a good run’ and was bullish about heading to the Moonee Valley Cup in a fortnight.

Meanwhile, Stop Making Sense – who was sent out on the second line of betting at $7.50 in Race 3 – was found to have pulled up with an internal bleed or exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage.

Weekend Road Racing Guide: Chicago Marathon, USATF 10 Mile – FloTrack

Two major road races are scheduled to go down in the Midwest this weekend–the Chicago Marathon and the USATF 10 Mile Championships in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Here is a full breakdown of what you should follow from both races set to go off Sunday morning.?

Chicago Marathon?

Although world?record?holder Dennis Kimetto has dropped out of the race due to a stress fracture in his left leg, the men’s competition in Chicago still holds several notable storylines.?

Last year’s champion Dickson Chumba and Olympic bronze medalist Tsegaye Kebede headline the field and have both clocked personal bests in the 2:04:30 range. Sunday will mark Chumba’s second marathon in 2016 after finishing third in the Tokyo Marathon in?February. Kebede will also be running his second marathon of the year after finishing fifth at the Rotterdam Marathon in April.?

Marathon newcomer Stephen Sambu will be running after racking up over $280K in prize money in the shorter road racing circuit over the past three and a half years. With a quick 60:41 half-marathon personal best, it will be interesting to see how the Kenyan will fare over 26.2.?
The American contingent will be represented by Luke Puskedra, who is on the comeback train after an incredibly tough year. John Gault spoke to Puskedra earlier this week, where they discussed Puskedra’s recovery from a devastating fourth-place finish at the Olympic Marathon Trials and his infant daughter’s battle with cancer. Puskedra learned of his daughter Penelope’s illness just days after the Trials and has since been supported by a GoFundMe campaign that?raised over $75,000 to assist with medical expenses. Penelope is cancer-free now, and the future seems a lot brighter for the Puskedra family.?

Diego Estrada will also toe the line in an attempt to race his first marathon since dropping out of the Olympic Marathon Trials in February. Estrada attempted to make the Olympic team on the track, but he?dropped out of the 10K and finished 11th in the 5K final. Runner’s World’s Cindy Kuzma spoke with Estrada about his plan to tune out the politics to seek marathon redemption in Chicago.?

The women’s race will be a battle between Florence Kiplagat and Edna Kiplagat. Florence, a two-time world champion, finished third at the London Marathon earlier this year. Edna, a two-time world champion in the marathon, is returning from a third-place finish at the Tokyo Marathon. Since Tokyo, she’s been tearing it up on the roads by finishing top three in all five road races she’s competed in this year. ?

The American women’s field features top 10 Olympic Trials finishers Serena Burla and Alia Gray. Gray finished 10th at the Trials with a breakthrough performance and personal best of 2:35:47. Burla finished eighth at the championships. She boasts a personal best of 2:28:01 from Amsterdam in 2013. Sarah Crouch will also be competing after finishing 11th at the Boston Marathon earlier this year. She was sixth in Chicago in 2014.?


USATF 10 Mile Championships

The second road race of Sunday morning will be the USATF 10 Mile Championships in Minneapolis, where several American pros will throw down for a national crown.?

Some notable racers on the men’s side include Andrew Bumbalough, who will be running his second race of the year after finishing 11th at the USATF 5K Championships on Sept. 18. The multiple-time national finalist was sidelined due to injury earlier this year, but he?expressed his optimism for the remainder of 2016 on his Twitter account this summer.?

Four-time NCAA champion Sam Chelanga will be racing after finishing third at the USATF 5K Championships and sixth in the 10K at the Olympic Trials. Brian Shrader will also toe the line after finishing eighth at the 5K championships and 14th in the 5K final of the Olympic Trials.?

The women’s field is will include several notable experienced distance runners, including road racing veteran Sara Hall, Nike Oregon Project’s Jordan Hasay, Olympic triathlon champion Gwen Jorgensen, and U.S. 25K champion Aliphine Tuliamuk-Bolton.?

Hall is racing in preparation for the New York City Marathon on Nov. 6 after running a new personal best of 2:30:06 at the London Marathon in April. Hasay is returning from her latest race at the USATF 5K Championships,?where she finished third. Jorgensen just won triathlon gold in Rio and competed at the world championships on Sept. 17, where she collected a runner-up finish. She will be making her debut in the marathon in New York. Bolton just won the 20K and 25K USATF championships and will seek another distance title this weekend.?
