The 2011 Apollo Stakes will take place at Rosehill Gardens and will sport an exciting line-up of some of Australia’s most talented racehorses.
Current favourite for the 1,400 metre Group 1 Apollo Stakes is Hot Danish, currently paying $3.20 at Luxbet.
Hot Danish will be after a solid win after finishing third in the Group 2 Expressway Stakes on February 5, 2011.
Hot Danish has won three times over the 1,400 metre distance, so we can expect her to run a thrilling race in the 2011 Apollo Stakes.
Second in the betting order is reigning New South Wales Horse of the Year Melito, who will be having her first up run of the season after being pulled out of last Saturday’s Breeders Classic.
Gerald Ryan’s Melito performs best over the 1,400 metre distance, winning two of her four victories over this distance.
Melito’s trainer made the decision to run his four-year-old mare after her exceptional trial win on February 15.
Melito is currently well favoured in the betting and is paying $4.40 at Luxbet.
Also at short odds is Love Conquers All, paying $5 for the win at Luxbet.
Love Conquers All has won six of his 12 career starts, however, is yet to win over the 1,400 metre distance.
Love Conquers All finished second to Centennial Park, who will also contest the 2011 Apollo Stakes, in the Expressway Stakes at Rosehill on February 5, 2011.
Centennial Park is fourth favourite in the betting market, despite defeating most of this same field in the Expressway Stakes.
Paying very generous odds of $7.50 a win a Luxbet, Centennial Park is in with a real chance in the 2011 Apollo Stakes after winning by almost a length on February 5.
Also in the market is seven-year-old veteran Danleigh, paying $9 at Luxbet, who finished fourth in the Expressway Stakes.
