CARLSBERG Derby winner Woodcock Hunting confirmed her status as the new Queen of the Canidrome with a slashing victory in the Mid Autumn Festival Cup this week. The black and white Australian-bred bitch was backed down to 3-1-on to win the important piece of silverware - it's one of the Canidrome's longest-standing feature races - and did so emphatically. She recorded a time of 28.8 seconds for the 525 yards which is only over a length off the track record held by Let's Go Honey. ''She's the one they have to beat now. There is no doubt that she is a bitch of real quality and there are a lot of big races ahead for her,'' said kennel boss, Brian Murphy. Meanwhile, the Canidrome is getting out the red carpet for a number of dignitaries down to attend their special Australia Night function later this month. Australia Night follows on from the well established St Patrick's Night function and another big event on the Macau calendar, Scottish Night. But it looks as if the Australians are really going to do Macau proud with preliminary acceptances from the Consul General in Hongkong, Jocelyn Chey and the Trade Commissioner, Bob Jennings. There will be three major sponsored races on the programme and Murphy said yesterday: ''It should be quite a night and we will certainly be honoured to have some of these very prominent Australians present. ''We have actually switched the date from October 24 to October 23 because there is no horse racing in Hong Kong that weekend so a number of other racing fans will be able to get across to Macau.'' And there will be more business at the track tonight with a further draw. Again it will be for dogs who are already running at the Canidrome.
