Twice the Parnham brothers – Brad, Chris and Steven – have combined for five wins when riding at the same meeting. The siblings are set to ride eight of Saturday’s nine Ascot favourites. What is their most likely tally?

Using TABtouch‘s odds at 17:00 today for Saturday’s nine Ascot contests, three Parnham victories is the marginal favourite ahead of four, two, five, one, six, zero, seven, eight and nine. Approximately, there is a six per cent chance of the Parnham brothers riding six or more winners, which would eclipse what they achieved collectively at Ascot on Wednesday 29 October 2014 and Saturday 10 October 2020.

The Parnham siblings have individual meeting bests of three wins for Steven (five times), four wins for Brad (once) and five wins for Chris (once), plus each of them has ridden more than 600 winners on Australian soil. And they are just three members of a remarkable Australian racing family.
