Samizdat is ballot exempt from the Kirin-Railway Stakes and the Magic Millions-Kingston Town Classic

The Run of the Race: Episode 52

Amelia Park-bred, Gangemi Racing-trained Samizdat does not have to worry about getting a start in the Kirin-Railway Stakes and/or the Magic Millions-Kingston Town Classic because his Hosemasters-Asian Beau Stakes success means he is ballot exempt for those two Group One races.

Mark Worwood uses Punting Form's data to review the TABtouch Derby Day at Ascot action and, according to the clock watchers, Samizdat was the star as he booked his berth in the big one on Kirin Railway Stakes Day.

Ascot Racecourse is where horseplay lives and Saturday's Ascot Racing Carnival event is November's Family Day and it features the WAROA-Lee Steere Stakes, the BallPoint Construction-Fairetha Stakes and Janet Hammill's exhibition.
