Group One Records

This section of the site is dedicated to providing the complete history of winners of all the Group 1 (or equivalent) Races conducted in Australia – from race inception.

Over 40 of Australia’s Greatest Races have already been uploaded, detailing the winning horse, trainer and jockey – nowhere else, either in print form or on the web, can this information be accessed.

In addition, and where available or relevant, the Races will also contain the key stats that Form Focus is famous for – saddlecloth number, barrier, starting price, age, sex and weight carried. The winning horse’s lead-up form is also supplied, again, where available/relevant.

For a preview, the G1 Melbourne Cup is a good starting point.

All-Time Australian Group One Winning Jockeys

This section of the site is dedicated to listing the Top Jockeys (All-Time) of Group 1 races (or equivalent) conducted in Australia – from race inception.

A snapshot profile is provided, outlining major milestones and achievements.

Displayed in chronological order, each Jockey’s Group 1 wins are detailed by year, race name, horse and trainer. A great place to start is Damien Oliver.

A Top Ten Jockeys listing has been uploaded to the site with the aim to have a Top 30 listing accomplished by the end of 2021.

All-Time Australian Group One Winning Trainers

This section of the site is dedicated to listing the Top Trainers (All-Time) of Group 1 races (or equivalent) conducted in Australia – from race inception.

A snapshot profile is provided, outlining major milestones and achievements.

However, the real and unique feature is the chronological listing of all winners scoring at Group 1 level – this cannot be found, with such detail, anywhere else in printed form or on the web.

Much time has been spent cross-referencing existing records (from multiple sources) to arrive at accurate and audited totals for each Trainer.

An announcement regarding the publication of the Top 10 (All-Time) Australian G1 Winning Trainers will be made during the first half of 2021.

    • Positives – here we zero in on the major prospects by highlighting a range of positive signs, both historical and contemporary
