Punt Drunk Daily news – Monday, January 11 2021
Well, that’s another weekend done and dusted! Conspicuous amounts of beer, plenty of winning tickets, and a weekend full of Chicken Parma’s! However, we get greeted by Monday, the day where we all wish we didn’t have to wake up to a 5am alarm and we could just live life to the fullest! In a hoodie, jeans and a schooner in our hand, but alas we move on to another week!
All aboard the Kaonic train! 🚂

If there’s one thing we love more than we love racing, it’s a bloody good underdog story! This story of Kaonic screams it as well. The former Chris Waller trained gelding is now based in Melbourne with Neil Dyer and is being aimed to take out the Darwin Cup. However, there’s one big carrot in his sights, the 2021 All Star Mile! Imagine this, a country horse going to take on the sorts of Arcadia Queen, Behemoth, Mystic Journey and plenty of other Group 1 superstars. Imagine Kaonic handles Moonee Valley better than those listed, and he bolts in the All Star Mile? That’s what racing is all about, the one for the battlers! He’s had starts in Group 1 races in the past and has been a listed grade winner as well, so he has plenty of experience in black type races. We’re on board, and when the voting for the All Star Mile opens we’re all aboard the Kaonic trained, stopping all stations to Moonee Valley! #KaonicAllStar
Staying apart proves the winning move!

You head up to the Gold Coast in January and you think how bloody good is this? A fortnight away for the Magic Millions, Cavill avenue has your name written all over it and you’re about to ride a winner that will change your career! How bloody good does that sound? Well that’s the dream, however travelling Victorians, Craig Williams and Luke Nolan were segregated from the rest of the jockey’s at the Gold Coast on Saturday and boy did it pay dividends! With important wins aboard Paradee and Finance Tycoon respectively the two Victorians truly showed that #VicsDoItBetter
We’re going to keep today’s version of Punt Drunk nice and short, because we don’t want to overshadow how big of an achievement it will be if Kaonic can get into the All Star Mile! We’re on board, we’re going to make sure you are with us along the journey as well! All Star Mile into the Darwin Cup!!! Yes please!
