CF Orr Stakes 2011 Final Field & Barrier Draw

Reigning Horse of the Year Typhoon Tracy headlines a star-studded final field for this Saturday’s $400,000 Group 1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield, 16 runners accepted for the weight-for-age showdown and opening Group 1 race of the 2011 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

The 2011 CF Orr Stakes, scheduled as Race 7 at Caulfield on Saturday, will see Peter Moody’s five-time Group 1 winning mare and 2010 CF Orr Stakes champion Typhoon Tracy back to defend her title.

Red Ransom five-year-old Typhoon Tracy, likely to be retired as a broodmare at the end of this season, resumed in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on January 28.

Starting the favourite, she finished a respectable third beaten by less than a length by Whitefriars.

On Saturday the Typhoon will advantage from the slightly longer 1400m distance and with 57kg is one of the three light-weight mares in the field along with Bart Cummings’ Faint Perfume (barrier seven) and Testa Rossa mare Ortensia (barrier six) who was fourth in the Australia Stakes.

Typhoon Tracy, however, has suffered a blow with a wide barrier 11 draw.

Leading Victorian trainer Moody also has his last start stakes winner Doubtful Jack (barrier five) and new edition to his stables, former Macau galloper and Horse of the Year there Luen Yat Forever (barrier 16) engaged for the CF Orr this year.


Linton has drawn barrier 1 for the 2011 CF Orr Stakes

Coming up trumps in the CF Orr barrier draw is the Robert Hickmott-trained Linton with the inside alley.

Linton, one of two horses representing prominent racehorse owner Lloyd Williams in the CF Orr Stakes field along with nine-year-old warrior Zipping, is due to be ridden by Michael Rodd on Saturday.

The Galileo four-year-old showed promise in the spring with a good win in the Group 3 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) and second place finish behind Maluckyday in the Group 3 The Lexus Stakes (2500m) but failed to run the 3200m of the Melbourne Cup finishing a distant 21st out of the 23 starters.

Having been freshened up, Linton is a top chance in the CF Orr Stakes but may struggle with the 59kg which is the heaviest weight they have carried to date.

Zipping has drawn at the other end of the field in gate 10.

The in-form Danehill gelding is resuming after a stunning spring that included a Group 1 victory in the Turnbull Stakes and multiple Group placings including their second to So You Think in the Cox Plate and fourth in the Melbourne Cup.

Twelve months ago Zipping ran seventh to Typhoon Tracy in the CF Orr but is expected to do much better this time round.

Other horses returning from last year’s CF Orr Stakes are 2010 runner-up Heart Of Dreams, fourth placegetter Danzylum and Shocking who ran eighth.

Previous Melbourne Cup winner Shocking is also first-up for the season on Saturday, but has a horror barrier 15 draw to contend from.

Other notable runners in the CF Orr Stakes this year include Bart Cummings’ Zabeel five-year-old Precedence, the Ciaron Maher-trained Moudre and David Haye’s European import Rebel Soldier making their Australian race debut.
